    Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer today unleashes one of the most powerful Air CPU Coolers on the planet, the V8 GTS. It's powered by the very same Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC) Technology that keeps high-end graphics cards cool while containing the sheer raw force of a maelstrom within its huge, powerful fans.

    Seemingly channeling the power of the muscle cars that inspired its design and the wind deities that grant them passage, V8 GTS is without equal. It dissipates large amounts of heat through its marriage of HVC and an optimized fin tower design. V8 GTS is built with triple tower heatsinks and eight high performance heat pipes all to channel the massive amount of heat being pulled away from the processor by the vapor chamber. Despite its menacing high performance engine outlook and large stature, V8 GTS still leaves plenty of space for memory slots.

    High-grade POM Fan Bearings
    Dual high airflow 140mm fans funnel a veritable vortex through the triple heatsink array. These fans are equipped with a new generation of fan bearings known as POM. These fans are not only virtually dustproof, they will last up to an astounding 160,000 hours of use. This lifespan is due to a unique self-lubricating and low friction POM bearing design. Meaning the fans and the V8 GTS will likely keep cooling your parts long after they've expired or become obsolete many times over.

    Super Effective HVC Technology
    Cooler Master Engineers have worked to solve how to transfer this highly effective cooling method into CPU coolers for some time now. V8 GTS is the result of their perseverance. HVC consists of highly advanced metal heat spreaders that draw heat away from a single or multiple heat sources.

    [​IMG]

    The Vapor Chamber aspect is the hollow interior of the HVC structure that is filled with coolant that cycles between evaporation and precipitation to circulate within the container. This cycle draws a massive amount of heat away from the heat source. From here the HVC transfers the heat evenly to multiple direct contact heat pipes that send the heat up an optimized heatsink tower where the powerful V8 GTS fans expel the heat. The extraordinary result is that the V8 GTS can handle thermal loads up to an astonishing 250W. To call the V8 GTS a mere air cooler would be folly. It is the prime example and the flagship of the widely popular V Series CPU Coolers.

    Available
    V8 GTS will be available August. Price and availability may vary based on region. This release is meant for the U.S. and Canada region(s) only. Please consult your local Cooler Master Representative for more information.

    I like the creativity shown in the design but if one of the fans go bad, you can't replace it right?

    the fan and its connecting shroud are two different parts. The design is fan specific, so you would have to go to CM for a replacement fan as I don't ever recall seeing another fan beveled such as these are.

    Looks a lot better than the original V8 IMO. Hoping its better than the original one.

    looks like the reviews are in the okay side, nothing revolutionary in its performance but has good looks.

    Review doesn't seem to bad. Wonder if there is any chance of another updated hybrid tec setup.

    had to lol. I would like to see a real attempt for enthusiasts, rather than something that was set not to go below ambient for condensation reasons. More like what you eventually made ;)

    I would love to see one with the controller like the original, but add an "extreme" mode that flips the TEC up to 100%.

    As for mine, the secondary heat sink needs to be bigger (the one for the TEC). I am probably going to try a 150w on my current one and a better batch of fans.

    Whacky design and lots of hype. I'm betting it isn't one of the top HSFs when objectively tested.

    Looks like a Spaceship...

    Despite the fact that it looks like a spaceship, it probably won't beat my Phanteks PH-TC14PE

    I'd be baffled if it did.

    I think it looks really nice, if it performs averagely, or at least better than average, I'd be happy to buy one if I didnt have a spare H100 already.
    This would look great in a black case with red LED's and a massive sidepanel window. Mainly for looks, not so much for performance I think.

    Appeals to the average consumer.
    Looks like an engine has the name V8 and has two fans.
    Sure win for Coolermaster regardless of average performance.

    looks like it will. quite a couple centimeters off the top of those normal ram heatsinks.

    i must say, that thing looks pretty darn awesome.

    if it has decent performance, its worth a shot if you are looking into dazzling somebody

    I was using the original V8 for about 4 years, it was a nice cooler and gave me good overclocks on both my core2 systems and i5.

    They don't generally make the best performing heatsinks, but the good thing about CM HSFs is that they are available everywhere.
