Cooler Master V10 CPU Cooler Review

100% Tec Peformance


After we completed the mod, we reran the tests and here are the results of what this cooler COULD have been.


Well, that certainly makes a difference! With the fans running flat out and the TECs doing the same the true cooling potential of this piece of kit is realized. While we would have liked to have seen the load temperatures even lower they certainly are the best we have seen for any air cooling based solution! For anyone curious, the TEC is still working...kind of, sort of. Instead of sucking 70 watts it is now only sucking 20'ish watts of power. Luckily, we got our 15 minutes of full power before we got an ozone smell. Why is it only sucking 20watts now? We are not sure, but either this bad boy needs ultra smooth power and it got a small ripple which damaged it, or it needs less and we over feed it.

One way or another, the cooler still works but it took one for the team so to speak.
