Cooler Master V10 CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread
 
Well after playing with, taking it apart, putting it back together....and even killing it via a mod I think we can safely say we got to know this V10 pretty good. All in all it really is a great cooler, albeit a very expensive cooler with a few major First Gen Quirks to it. Are these quirks deal breakers? That depends on what you plan on using the V10 on and what kind of OC'ing you plan to do.

To get a good overivew of this V10 please read our review here: V10

Hope you enjoy it,

I've had this cooler for ~ 3 weeks now and while it really is a huge cooler, that costs twice+ the average price, I'd buy it again without a second thought.

Most of you have probably already have seen this but when I overclocked my i7 920 to 3990 MHz the temps were still well in-line, without any mods to the cooler.

Yes, as stated the cooler increases its own performance as the heat output from the processor increases.

Very nice temps. Anything below 60 on a i7 is a godsend. Still unsure if it's worth the price though. Extremely thorough review. I enjoyed it very much.

Well, if one has the room for it, I'd say sure give it a shot.
TEC Hybrids and the like really need a hot chip to show their A-game (much like the review stated).
I remember an Ultra one my friend had, and no matter what we did, we couldn't get it to 100%...
So, for those running hot Chips, its perfect.

Good review
That thing looks Huge I must have missed the weight of it and I am wondering if it would warp the Motherboard after a while?

SKYMTL March 2, 2009 09:28 AM

The weight is in the specs.

Looks like a lawnmower engine.
