Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler Review



/ 6 years ago

Next Page »

Cooler Master are a brand that we are very familiar with at eTeknix and have always been a company that we have focussed on to see what they come up with in the future. Whilst the future is bright, we can’t but help look back at the past at a slightly older product, though even as it’s not the newest swanky thing on the market, it still holds its own by offering an amazing cooling product at a low price, especially when compared to its rivals.

We can only be talking about the much talked about Cooler Master V8, which gets its name and styling from the famous engine, without all the noise that a V8 engine is famous for. It incorporates a large heatsink design with a fan sandwiched between it and is suitable for the latest and greatest CPU sockets on the market. For complete control over the CPU cooler an included PWM fan control gives complete silence when needed and extreme cooling if that’s your bag.

Based on the awards this cooler has obtained, it seems to live up to all of the hype above but how do we get on with it after we’ve looked at the likes of the Noctua NH-C14 mammoth cooler. Will we be let down or pleasantly surprised?

    Not a fan of these large coolers, much prefair the low profile coolers such as the Vortex Plus, I have a Scythe low cooler at the moment, pretty quite, so if I was changing it then the Vortex woud suit. And that is a good price from Scan.

    The v8 has always been considered overpriced lately, but price drops lately may actually make it decent value.

    It looks like a transformer in disguise. 🙂

    The V8 has been here for years… This review wants to tell everyone that it's still one of the greatest coolers out there.
