Cooler Master Announce V8 GTS CPU Cooler
Ryan Martin / 4 years ago
Cooler Master have just announced their latest CPU cooler, the V8 GTS. We first saw this cooler back at Computex 2013 just a few months ago and now we finally know it will be hitting the market from August. The V8 GTS uses horizontal vapor chamber (HVC) technology as well as a pair of 140mm fans cooling two outer heatsinks and one central heatsink. These 140mm fans are rated for 160K hours of use, have dustproof POM bearings and sport bright red LEDs.
The entire design uses eight heat pipes, which appear to be all 6mm in thickness. The design follows Cooler Master’s tradition for the V(X) series air coolers and is designed to imitate a car engine. Cooler Master claim a thermal capacity of up to 250W. We will of course endeavour to bring you a review of this cooler when it is released.
There is currently no regional pricing released by Cooler Master and we are also awaiting detailed release dates for European availability. No doubt we can expect pricing to be around or above NH-D14 levels as it is really tackling a premium market segment. That said we expect pricing of around £60/$90 or more but we will of course disclose accurate pricing and availability when we get it.
