Cooler Master V6 GT CPU Cooler Review

When we first got a glimpse of the V series CPU coolers from Cooler Master we were very impressed.  We first got a chance to check out the V8 cooler, then came the V10 cooler and today we have the brand new V6 GT cooler.  Once again like the other coolers in the V series it has the engine inspired look and a very unique design.  Cooler Master says the V6 GT is the most efficient cooler in the V series thanks to the double-V heatpipes, inclined heatsink array, universal steel pressure mounting and twin DynaLoop dynamic bearing fans.  Let’s take a look at the V6 GT and see if it is a real performer.

Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing us with the V6 GT CPU Cooler to review.
