Thermaltake unveils NiC processor coolers
Thermaltake, a well-known manufacturer of cooling solutions, computer chassis and power supply units, has announced an innovative line of new CPU coolers known as NiC. NiC stands for “non-interference cooler” and the new line packs a number of really new technologies that make it stand out when compared to the competition.
Thermaltake NiC consists of two models – the L31 and L32 – and offers the most innovative feature of all – it is fully compatible with RAM memory modules of all kinds and it is ideal for power users who like to fill all memory slots with taller RAM sticks. The coolers achieve this by delivering the best clearance in the CPU cooler industry. In addition NiC delivers efficiency, low noise and performance.
The coolers include three solid 8 mm direct contact heat pipes that transfer heat very efficiently which makes the coolers compatible with processors with TDP of up to 160 watts. Despite this the coolers come with slim-looking fan frames that avoid interference with other motherboard components and achieve just 140 mm of total height (L32 – 160 mm). The 120 mm cooling fan spins at 500-1800 rpm but an additional one can be added if there is need.
The Thermaltake NiC L31 and L32 support all modern Intel and AMD processors. The pricing of the new coolers is not known though.
