    Does anyone know the release date of the CoolerMaster V8. Ive read a ton of reviews on it and it looks amazing and it seems to preform very well. I really want to buy 2 of them.. one for my current rig and 1 for my new build im buying VERY soon. Thanks guys:toast:

    Within a week or two. Why did you decide to get that cooler?

    Cause I want a badass air cooler for my new rig and current rig. I have a Tuniq Tower 120 (w/o LEDs) on my P4 rig(idle temps- 23c/load temps-38-42).Ive never seen my TT120 go over 43c yet and i have a 1ghz oc on the P4 24/7. In all of the reviews I've read so far it beats the TT120 pretty good. And hell .. if I get one I could brag to my friends and say " yep.. its got a V8 in it." lol And I figure if i get one with a return policy.. I can atleast make my own judgment compared to my current TT120.. if I like it I'll keep it and buy another with my new system and if I dont I can return it and get my money back, or at least another cooler of choice.:rolleyes:

    Make any sense?

    Don't know about the release date, but the HS it self is very nice. I like the design myself, but it is one of the most expensive air coolers on the market. HET has the best price for a new one, plus I thinks he puts AS5 on it before it goes out.

    Go for it!

    Cool! If you want something that performs better though, I would go with a Xigmatek RS1283. But then again there's no V-8 in the Xigmatek name.:p I think the V8 looks badass too, but it looks much better without the plastic shroud on top.

    I agree the V8 looks pretty awesome, even though it's not really a V. But I'm sure it cools better being straight than it would if it actually were a V.

    edit: How about the v10 or v12?

    I think the v10 looks like it won't work that well, but the v12 looks awesome

    looks a bit like over kill to me. I have the OCZ XTC ram cooler now. And on my new build Im buying 8gigs of corsair dominator ddr2 1066 w/the cooler. so no need for all that. plus it looks frickn huge!:wtf:

    Now that V12 looks tempting...
