Overall, the V8 GTS CPU Cooler is something new and refreshing. It includes two pre-installed 140mm self-lubricating fans with ultra durable POM bearings that make the entire cooler glow a demonic dark red. This cooler has dimensions of 154mm x 149.8mm x 166.5mm and a 6mm diameter. At a weight of 2.5lbs it weighs .2lbs less than it’s rival, the Noctua NH-D14. It has a vapor chamber, 8 heat pipes, and aluminum fins. The fan speed is adjustable between 600RPM ~ 1600RPM and has an air flow of 28 ~ 82 CMF with a noise level of 36dBA.
At an MSRP of $99.99 I am very happy with the quality of this air cooler. I praise the engineers who designed this. I can tell that they have a lot of pride in their work. I do have one con that I have to state. This is very difficult to install on a motherboard that is inside a case. It is really easy to drop a bolt and have it roll under the motherboard. Regardless of that, the performance outweighs any cons that I could tell you. Once this is installed, it is a beast and a force to be reckoned with. Good job Cooler Master! Thank you for pushing air cooling into an entire new genre!
