Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler Review

29 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Final Thoughts Being honest, i had my reservations about this cooler when we first had it come through our doors. It had been given awards, but anyone can do that and even then, the awards it has were from 2009.
  • Pros: Affordable, Stylish, Fantastic cooling, Quiet, Adjustable fan speed, Easy to install
  • Cons: May be a bit high for some chassis

Cooler Master V8 Heatpipe CPU Cooler

  • Summary: All in all, the Cooler Master V8 holds it's own with the best air cooler we've seen so far - the Prolimatech Megahalems. With only a degree or two separating these two performance wise, I dare say it's a wash. Both are very good at cooling even at extreme loads and with minimal noise.
  • Pros: » Very quiet, even on high, » Fan can be changed very easily, » Multiple platform means you can upgrade without buying a new cooler, » Includes a simple fan speed controller
  • Cons: » Priced on par with "elite" air coolers and water cooling solutions, » Installation is more difficult than really needs to be

  • Excerpt: I am a fanboy of American automobiles especially the old school ones like the Mustangs, Chevells, Novas and many others. And one of the reasons I am so into these cars is because of the big blocks ( V8 for the unknowing) that these cars all had. Pure muscle is where it is all at.

  • Conclusion: The Cooler Master V8 mixes a rare blend of aesthetics and performance that is often pined for but rarely achieved. Did the V8 succeed? I would say definitely so. The performance was superb for a chip notorious for pouring off heat.
