Thermaltake Reveals NiC L32 and L31 CPU Coolers

Thermaltake has announced two new CPU coolers: the NiC L31 and the NiC L32.

The main issue that these coolers aim to address is RAM clearance, which is also where the NiC name comes from: Non-interference Cooler.

The coolers are built on a tower-design with a u-shaped heat pipe design. They feature three 8 mm thick heat pipes, each made of copper and making direct contact with the CPU IHS. The L31 features a cooling capacity of up to 160 W, while the L32 can dissipate up to 180 W.  They'll work on all modern day CPU sockets, including LGA 2011, LGA 1150, as well as all the newest AMD sockets including AM3+ and FM2+ sockets.

The L31 features a 120 mm fan, while the L32 features a 140 mm fan. Both of the fans can spin at speeds between 500 and 1800 RPM, and can be PWM controlled.

There was no word on pricing or availability yet.
