The packaging for the Thermaltake NiC F4 is very simple. This is not the traditional flash we see from them. The box details out features and specifications.

 

CPU Cooler RoundupThe contents of the Thermaltake NiC F4  includes everything you will need to get the CPU cooler installed on top of your motherboard.

 

DSC_0270The Thermaltake NiC F4 is a 120mm tower cooler. It features four 6mm heat pipes that run through a tower of fins.

 

DSC_0273From a straight on shot, you can see just how much space is between the fins on the cooler. This should ensure maximum airflow through the tower and help keep the CPU cool.

 

DSC_0298The base of the Thermaltake NiC F4 is nice and flat. If the base of the cooler is not flat, it will not make full contact with the CPU and cooling capacity will be diminished. There are minor machining marks in the heat pipes and this cooler is considered heat pipe direct touch.

DSC_0286Dual 120 mm PWM fans are included with the Thermaltake NiC F4. The fans share a common connection to the motherboard so only one motherboard header is needed to run the set.

 

DSC_0291The fans feature a split blade design. This should allow the fans to move more air with less noise. These fans are rated at  79.28 CFM and a noise range of 18-30.2 dBA.

 

DSC_0035Installation was a snap. Insert the four threaded posts through the back plate and through the motherboard. Install a couple of spacers on the posts, mount the brackets and screw down the Thermatake NiC F4.

 

DSC_0038All dressed and ready to go. The NiC series of CPU cooler from Thermaltake is non interference and the CPU cooler clears the RAM slots.
