Thermaltake BigTyp 14Pro CPU Cooler Review

We tested Thermaltake BigTyp 14Pro CPU cooler, which fits on socket LGA775 Intel processors and also on socket AM2, AM2+, AM3 and 939 AMD CPUs. Let's see if this huge cooler is really a good product.

This cooler is really huge and has a 140 mm fan, as its name denotes. This name, by the way, is a reference to its predecessor, Big Typhoon VX, with similar design but using a smaller 120 mm fan. The part number for BigTyp 14Pro is CL-P0456.

Its box has an opening where you can see the fan and part of the heatsink.

Removing the cooler from the box we can have an idea of how it is: there is a "sandwiched" base, where the bottom part is cooper-made and keeps direct contact with the CPU, with six 6-mm heatpipes. These heatpipes bring the heat produced by the CPU to the heatsink, which is located on an upper location, away from the base.

The fan is made of a dark transparent acrylic and the structure that works both as a cage and as a support is made with the same material. In the center part of the fan there are three LEDs that glow blue when the cooler is turned on.

In Figure 4, you can see how far is the heatsink from the base. This is necessary so the large heatsink does not interfere with other motherboard components, like the heatsink from the chipset or from the memory modules.
