Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler Review

Today we have the chance to look at the Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler. Yes V8 in engine V8. Well it’s not really an engine, but its pretty dang powerful like a V8 engine is. This award winning cooler offers four modular fin sets which have a total of eight heatpipes running through them. With 120mm fan backed by PWM and VR Controllers the V8 is both powerful and quiet. It is by far the best CPU Cooler we’ve reviewed. Reader on further to see what else I think about the V8.

– Supports Intel Core i7 CPU
– 4 separate modular sets of aluminum fins create a large heat dissipation surface for unsurpassed cooling performance
– 8 heat pipes maximize heat transfer
– Mirror-finished base makes for 100% contact with the processor
– Optimum Airflow – The center mounted 120mm fan blows cool air through the fins of the heatsink and cools down the heatsink which is taking the heat away from the CPU smoothly
– Precision Control and Quiet Operation at 17~21 dBA – Adjustable PWM fan speed control, using a manual knob placed in the back of the chassis, enables fan adjustments from 7V to 12V, allowing users to find the perfect balance between cooling performance and noise level
