Excerpt: There has always been a fascination with the automobile, not only as a means of transportation but as a means of self-expression. It didn’t take long after the invention of the automobile for people to begin individualizing them, most often with more power and looks that reflected it.
Pros: Outstanding Theme Apperance, Excellent Build Quality, Finish and Design, Eight Heatpipes, Triple Tower Fin Array, Two 140mm POM Bearing PWM Fans, Unique Design Gives Excellent RAM Compatibility, 2-Year Warranty
Cons: Mounting System Difficult (or Impossible) to Mount On MB With Larger VRM Heatsinks, Performance Below Average For Price Class, Too Much Noise For Performance Capabilities, Horizontal Vapor Chamber Adds Hype But Seems To Decrease Performance In Actual Usage

Conclusion: 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.

Summary: The Cooler Master V8 GTS is really impressive. Its specifications are amazing: three heatsinks, two 140 mm fans, eight heatpipes, and a vapor chamber base. It also looks impressive, with the black “armor” and red LEDs everywhere. But the cooling performance in our tests was a little disappointing.
Conclusion: Catching an initial glimpse of V8 GTS, it’s quite clear Cooler Master’s intention with this CPU cooler is on high-performance. Adopting a unique physical appearance, GTS is Cooler Master’s most resilient attempt at air cooling but has it been a triumph?
Pros: + Distinct visual appearance, + LED lighting, + Compatible with numerous sockets, + Good memory clearance for tall kits
