Ultimate overclocking Thermaltake structure design, support up to 230W

NiC C5 Untouchable CPU Cooler

Incorporating the proprietary technology, all new Thermaltake NiC series ( lineup consists of the F3, F4, C4, and C5 ), the new CPU cooler series with non-interference cooling space for the ram and motherboard area, the advancement towards silence, performance and compatibility. Fully compatible with RAM of all kinds, ideally for power users to fill their RAM slots with high-end overclocked RAM.

New Standard Non-Interference Cooler

The new NiC Series coolers solve the problem that high performance RAM and CPU coolers cannot co-exist in the past. NiC series coolers achieve the best RAM clearance allowing user to install high end overclock RAM with coolers with ease.

Overclock Design support up to 230W

Heat is conducted from the CPU onto the cooler through the thick nickel coated copper base and then onto the aluminum fins with 5 Φ6mm U-shaped heat-pipes. This ensures the best possible heat dissipation performance conducting heat effectively.

Curved Aluminum Fins

Aluminum fins are specially designed in a curved shape to reduce back air resistance and at the same time maximize airflow through them. The 0.4mm thick aluminum fins also increase the overall thermal dissipation area.

Integrated Dual 120mm VR fans

Both VR fans are contacted to an adjustable fan speed knob where the fans speed can be manually adjusted from 1000 to 2000rpm. A convenient tool-less fan mounting bracket design makes installation easier.

Universal Socket Compatibility

All-in-one back-plate design, the universal socket offers support all latest Intel and AMD platform.

 "So on one hand we have excellent cooling efficiency, size that does not affect the placement of memory modules, a very good design and a price tag which is not bad at all. On the other hand however we have very high noise levels when both fans are spinning at maximum speed so you need to carefully weigh what you prefer more. Personally when i play games i don't mind the extra noise coming from the tower and since the NiC C5 makes very good use of that without taking up too much space it easily gets our Golden Award."


Thermaltake have addressed a key issue which many enthusiasts are concerned with – memory clearance. The new NiC C5 does not overhang any of the memory slots on the motherboard and as a result means that a memory kit of any height can be used in conjunction with this cooler. This is great, because it removes any such limitations – low profile memory kits are mandatory for many other CPU coolers which overhang the slots.

Funky IT

"Based on everything, I feel the Untouchable is mostly-deserving of its title.  It makes good on its promises and gives you what you'd expect for the price.  That alone is deserving of a passing rating since it's often hard to come by a good cooler that doesn't make you feel like a frivolous or selfish spender for wanting a little extra strength out of your hardware."



NiC C5 functions well, clears my RAM sticks, and it’s reasonably priced. My only complaint is that the included fans do not support PWM, so you have to adjust fan speeds yourself with the included fan speed controller. All things considered, I would recommend this heatsink to others.

Thermaltake’s NiC C5 performed well in all our tests, rivalling even some of the better known CPU coolers many rely upon, furthermore key features like the variable fan controller and complete memory clearance will be certain to help Thermaltake steal the spotlight. <More>
