Cooler Master V8 GTS Review
27 February 2014
Excerpt: When it comes to keeping your CPU cool under pressure, it’s hard to beat a closed-loop liquid cooler (CLC). They’re on the expensive side, though, so there’s still plenty of room at $50 and below for conventional air cooling. What, then, do we make of an air cooler with an MSRP of $100?
Pros: Sleek looks; plays well with high-profile RAM.
Summary: The Cooler Master V8 GTS Air CPU Cooler like the previous V8 line, is a winner. It sports eight 6mm heatpipes, two LED 140mm fans, many aluminum fins and comes with a smooth baseplate with vapor chamber technology. This thing is a beast!
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 V8 GTS is really the best of all worlds. You get much better than average performance out of the cooler, and it isn't the typical tower cooler that looks plain and boring, but rather a very unique design that will look good in any build, especially all of those red and black themed builds out...
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
Excerpt: Cooler Master have never been ones to shy away from innovation and "full on" aesthetics. With the V8 GTS Cooler Master hope to mimic both the power and performance of the Muscle cars, by putting a huge V8 block as the engine into the heart of your PC.
Conclusion: Mit dem V8 GTS präsentierte und Cooler Master einen CPU-Kühler mit beeindruckenden Werten. Mit einem Kampfgewicht von über einem Kilogramm, zwei 140 Millimeter großen Lüftern und satten acht Heatpipes sollten keine Wünsche offen bleiben.
Pros: Gute Dokumentation auf der Verpackung, Langlebige Lüfter, Gute Verarbeitung, Aufwendige Kühlkonstruktion, Kompakte Konstruktion, keine Kompatibilitätsprobleme
Cons: Einbau ist bei Mainboards mit hohen Kühlkörpern extrem umständlich, Kühlleistung durchschnittlich, Lüfter besitzen eine viel zu hohe Drehzahl, damit zu laut
