    Default Cooler Master V8 GTS

    I'm sure every one who reads this is familiar with Cooler Master's "V" series of engine-themed CPU coolers. It consists of the V6, V6 GT, V8 and the TEC-cooled V10. Cooler Master has added another cooler to this award-winning lineup, dubbed the V8 GTS. It brings eight heat pipes and Cooler Master's horizontal vapor chamber to the table. The entire lineup of V series coolers has been very impressive thus far. Can the V8 GTS live up to the standards set by it's predecessors? Cooler Master was kind enough to send us one to check out so we can answer that question.Without further adieu let's get to it.

    Good review Will! The CM V8 GTS might not be the best as far as cooling but it depends on your neeeds! It does have more cooling than some ive seen and if you not a huge Ocer it would be awesome! As Far as looks its just totally AWESOME!! Love the looks and the clearance around the memory is a plus! I would have no problem sporting it in one of my Rigs!! CM could come down on the price a bit!!! But it is a nice looking addition appreance wise to anyones rig!

    Very ncie review. I was sure it was going to perform better then it did. Its not a bad cooler but with the size and price tag I figured it should be running neck and neck with Noctua and Phanteks massive air coolers. Still smexy though!

    Ouch... that price tag for that performance. If the price dropped to something in the realm of 80 bucks or so I'd deffo be able to recommend this to someone, but as it stands I kind of feel like it's just too expensive for the performance and lack of silence it offers... my standards for quiet are kind of picky, tho x-).

    Thanks guys! Yea I was surprised at the OC results as well but then I started looking online at other's reviews and found about the same results, so I knew there wasn't anything wrong with it. It's not terrible and the RAM clearance is good, but for that price you could get an AiO unit with better performance and the best RAM clearance out there lol.

    Or for $35 less you get get an NH-U12S that has almost identical performance to the top 240mm AiO (according to your own review) and is significantly quieter than either, and far more reliable than the AiO to go along with RAM clearance just as good......
