Back at the January Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year we brought you coverage of Thermaltake’s new product releases which included a whole selection of cases, power supplies, storage options and peripherals from its sub-division TT eSports. However, there were a couple of CES 2013 product releases from Thermaltake that stood right out at me, being the cooling reviewer and all. The first of those was the Thermaltake Water 3.0 series and the second was the Thermaltake NiC Series, both CPU coolers.

Today we are looking at something from the latter series, the Non Interference Cooler (NiC) series. Specifically we have the NiC C4, which is one of four coolers for the series that includes the NiC F3NiC F4NiC C4 and NiC C5. The Thermaltake NiC C4 is the “second best”  model from the NiC series with 220W of TDP support and it sits below the C5 (23oW) and above the F4 (180W) and F3 (160W). Featuring four 6mm heatpipes and two 120mm fans, plus as the NiC moniker suggests – total RAM compatibility with all platforms, the NiC C4 pledges to be a high end CPU cooler with full RAM support. You can see the full specifications below:

The front of the box points out the key features: four 6mm heatpipes, dual 120mm fans and support for the LGA 2011 socket. A cooling capacity of 220W is provided.

    I agree that the fan speed controller seems a little silly, they should’ve been PWM controlled. I also think the top of the fan shroud should’ve been closed to hide the heat pipes.

    Looks good, but the lack of PWM in c CPU cooling fan is well, a bit unexpected.
    Good design!
