Thermaltake V14Pro CPU Cooler CL-P0471

Benchmark Reviews
10 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Thermaltake keeps their packaging uniform with each product launch. The Black, red, and orange colors are a Thermaltake staple, while specifications and features always occupy at least one panel of the retail box. Keeping consumers educated, while at the same time giving them a see-through view of the product, is always a good way to deliver what you promise. Surprisingly, Tt makes no claims on their packaging... ever.
  • Pros: Best performing stock kit we've tested yet!, Six 6mm copper heat-pipes, Polished copper contact base, Two very dense finsink arrays, Powerful 140mm integrated cooling fan, Fan speed control dial, Very easy to install - no motherboard removal necessary, Top-five high-volume finisher in our Best CPU Cooler Performance - Q3 2008
  • Cons: Uses Intel push-pin clip system, Heavy unit weight should require backplate, Large footprint may not fit all motherboard layouts

Thermaltake v14Pro

  • Summary: There are few negative aspects of the V14Pro and the only thing really worth mentioning is compatibility. Given that the V14Pro is an extremely large heatsink, compatibility could be a problem for some users. While the heatsink should suit almost all motherboards, it may not be fully compatible with non-standard memory modules, such as those from Corsair and OCZ.

  • Excerpt: At Computex Thermaltake displayed several new CPU coolers that would be making their way to retail shelves before we start hanging our holiday lights and catch the cheer. Most of the media attention focused on the new Xpressar phase change cooler (which we will be looking at in the coming weeks). Little attention was paid to the products that were fine tuned since their first showing at CeBIT in March. The Thermaltake V14 Pro was one of those products.

Thermaltake V14 Pro CPU Cooler

Overclock3D
13 January 2009
  • Conclusion: So just how well did the Thermaltake V14 Pro perform in today's review? The build quality of the Thermaltake V14 Pro CPU cooler is quite good, although the copper fins do feel a little on the flimsy side and are quite easily bent. I would have liked to have seen an alternative mounting system other than Intel's push-pin style of securing the heatsink to the motherboard. Furthermore, the visual appearance of the Thermaltake V14 Pro may not be to everyone's tastes.
  • Pros: + Reasonable build quality, + Blue LED fan complements the CPU cooler, + Adjustable pot for controlling fan speed, + Good HTPC cooling if your case can accommodate it
  • Cons: Cooler fins are easily bent, No backplate
