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.

The V6 GT comes in a very colorful and informative retail package. On the front there is a picture of the V6 GT and on the back there is a list of specifications and features.
Opening the package up the cooler is nicely protected by a large piece of Styrofoam. Inside you will find the V6 GT cooler, installation hardware, thermal paste and the user’s manual.
