Closer Look

V8 GTS is unlike anything you will have seen before. Its shape and design are truly unique. Cooler Master engineered V8 GTS to have a triple heatsink arrangement and have given the central heatsink a mounting cover. This cover acts as a harness for the dual 140mm cooling fans.

This unique triple heatsink CPU cooler makes use of a phenomenal eight heatpipe design four allocated for the central heatsink, and another four through the additional heatsinks.

V8 GTS has an arrangement of aluminium fins which are stacked in a condensed fashion the side heatsinks are horizontally orientated, contrasting to the central heatsink which is positioned just like a tower-style usually is, vertically.

The baseplate breaks away from the norm, usually CPU coolers simply have all copper heatpipes passing through them but V8 GTS uses a horizontal vapour chamber design instead. Cooler Master claim that having this base will eliminate CPU hot spots, thus spreading heat evenly. This base is semi-transparent, the surface is slightly uneven.
