Thermaltake V14Pro Conclusion

CL-P0471 Details

As we continue to inspect the Thermaltake V14Pro CPU cooler, we're seeing that the CL-P0471 is loaded with copper in all areas of the design. As many reader might note, copper is not the inexpensive plumbing metal that it once was. As of October 2008, the price of copper has grown to fetch over $2.30 per pound compared to half that price for aluminum. With so much emphasis placed on the more expensive yet better performing metal, we will soon see if Thermaltakes design makes the V14Pro into the performer they intended.

Thermaltake has consistently impressed me with their earnest effort towards making the contact surface perfectly flat and extremely polished. The mounting base on the V14Pro CPU cooler is not much different than other Tt coolers, and like more Tt coolers the CL-P0471 model uses standard Intel push-pin mounting clips to secure the unit to the motherboard.
