Cooler Master V6 GT CPU Cooler Review
3 February 2011
Conclusion: Cooler Master are a brand that never fail to impress us here at eTeknix. They continue to release top quality products and expand into new markets which is exactly what fans and reviewers alike all enjoy seeing. Today sees us looking at a product from one of their more popular product categories, a CPU cooler. There is plenty of choice when it comes to choosing a Cooler Master CPU cooler and even more when we look at the complete market for processor coolers.
Summary: The new V6 GT CPU cooler from Cooler Master is the first cooler we've had on our Intel i7 test system from Cooler Master and overall it scored very well in our testing. The V6 GT is following in the footsteps of other Cooler Master coolers such as the V8 and V10 CPU coolers that feature a "automotive" or "engine" design. The design of the V6 GT is nice and sleek but not over the top like some other coolers.
Pros: Good Performance, High Quality Construction, Sleek Design
Excerpt: As with the original V6, the Cooler Master V6 GT is a big, good looking cooler with a robust, easily installed mounting solution. The GT has much better cooling performance thanks to an additional fan and a very nice lighting feature that adds some visual interest to the package.
Conclusion: Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, and test programs. That said, the ranking produced by these tests is accurate and gives a good idea how the coolers will perform relative to one another on any given system.
Pros: PWM controlled fans and a splice cable!, Comes with comprehensive mounting hardware and two fans., Compact size for a high-performance cooler., Controllable LED light strip provides just the right amoung of bling., Excellent performance with stock fans.
Cons: Intel bolt-through mounting system seems less robust than it could be., Expensive enthusiast cooling solution.
Excerpt: In the automotive market there are the top of the line cars that have huge V8, V10 and even some V12 varieties. With these huge amounts of horsepower that is associated with the larger engines, there is also quite the price associated with such autos. Don't get me wrong, most of us would love to have a Bugatti Veyron to drive back and forth to work, but practicality and our wallets usually limits us to a sedan of some make to fill this slot.
Excerpt: When we first got a glimpse of the V series CPU coolers from Cooler Master we were very impressed. We first got a chance to check out the V8 cooler , then came the V10 cooler and today we have the brand new V6 GT cooler. Once again like the other coolers in the V series it has the engine inspired look and a very unique design. Cooler Master says the V6 GT is the most efficient cooler in the V series thanks to the double-V heatpipes, inclined heatsink array, universal...
Pros: Very well designed, Not only performs well but is efficient, Looks cool, Easy installation, Universal cooler (will work on both Intel and AMD CPU’s), Ability to turn the LED strip off
Cons: One of the retention brackets was preinstalled backwards
Conclusion: There is an old maxim that says “quantity has a quality all of its own” and in our opinion, the Cooler Master V6 GT personifies this. It isn’t an absolutely massive heatsink of Noctua D14 stature nor is it a slim little thing like the Cogage TRUE Spirit but it makes use of a multitude of heatpipes, densely packed fins and two high speed fans to get the job done. And let us tell you: it does this job very, very well indeed.
