Thermaltake Enters the Market with NiC L31 and L32 CPU Coolers

Thermaltake Technology has just started shipping a pair of budgetary CPU coolers from NiC series. Entitled NiC L31 and NiC L32, these two models are compatible with all updated Intel and AMD platform motherboards. In keeping with the manufacturer, the new-comers will not obstruct the mounting of memory modules, due to their well-considered framework. Hence, they consist of small-sized heatsinks, three U-shape heatpipes (8 mm), and a base that is in direct contact with the CPU.



The first model, NiC L31 (codename: CL-P001-AL12RE-A), features 140x128x40 mm dimensions and weighs 530 g. The integrated 120 mm fan might operate in various speed modes – from 500 RPM to 1800 RPM – thanks to the support for PWM technology. It produces up to 70.99 CFM and dissipates up to 160 W power.


At the same time, at the minimal speed mode it generates only 18 dB noise, however at the ultimate rotations this index rises to 34.8 dB. According to the results of multiple tests, this fan is …
