Thermaltake NiC C5

18 July 2014
  • Summary: Thermaltakes NiC C5 is an interesting choice; its affordable price and exceptional cooling makes it an attractive option. This is especially true because of its non-intrusive design, which translates into perfect memory clearance on even Intel's LGA2011 socket. The fact that it's easy to install is also a huge boon. Thermaltake's NiC C5 is a cooler you can easily install into a case without removing the motherboard, which is obviously also dependent on the case itself.
  • Pros: Affordable price, Exceptional cooling performance, Perfect memory clearance, Easy to install, Good build quality, Well-packaged
  • Cons: Loud at full speed, Fans lack PWM, Blocks first motherboard expansion slot, Color theme not for everyone

  • Summary: Where do I start with a cooler like this? There is just so much goodness to discuss. Aesthetically, I don't think there is anyone with a red and black themed build that can say this wouldn't make an awesome addition to their system. Then come all the perks of the NiC C5. It does very well in the thermal testing, almost surprising for a cooler this small. With that you also get room for swapping out memory modules with no need to remove a fan or the cooler to do so.

Thermaltake NiC C5

29 April 2013
  • Summary: Mit dem NiC C5 liefert Thermaltake einen recht schmalen Tower-Cooler ab, der vor allem puncto Verarbeitungsqualität und Leistung zu glänzen weiß. Aber auch das sichere Montagesystem und der üppige Lieferumfang sprechen für den neuen Prozessorkühler. Kurz gesagt: Overclocker und Enthusiasten können bedenkenlos zum C5 greifen. Lediglich der happige Verkaufspreis trübt den positiven Gesamteindruck etwas. Christoph meint: Leistungsfähiger High-End Kühler!
  • Pros: saubere Verarbeitung, sehr gute Leistung, Lüfter bei niedriger und mittlerer Geschwindigkeit leise, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen drauf, Lieferumfang, Design
  • Cons: derzeit noch recht teuer, Lüfter bei max. Geschwindigkeit hörbar, Gewicht
