Thermaltake NiC F4 CPU Cooler Review
Ryan Martin / 6 years ago
The front of the Thermaltake NiC F4 is dominated by the red and black fan design which looks very nice, naturally attuned to the AMD colour scheme of red and black that we have seen of late with all AMD GPUs and FX processors.
From the top you can see the four 6mm heatpipes which are nickel plated.
The side shows you the thin profile of the heatsink which gives it the 100% RAM compatibility.
The base features four 6mm copper heatpipes that are nickel-plated. They use a direct contact design.
The mounting design with the Thermaltake NiC F4 is very good. It uses a motherboard bracket mount system which is the easiest because you can secure the brackets and backplate to the motherboard separate of the CPU cooler and then secure the CPU cooler to it when everything else is sturdy. This has major ease-of-install advantages over the alternative method where you secure the brackets to the CPU cooler and secure the backplate to the bracketed CPU cooler all in one go, Scythe, Be Quiet and Reeven CPU coolers use that tricky style of mounting.
Below you can see that you get all the mounting brackets and hardware required for the install. Separate AMD and Intel manuals are provided, two sets of fan clips and a tube of thermal paste.
