    The wait for a CPU cooler that both looks great and still outperforms the competition is over, as the Cooler Master V6GT combines a new thinking in CPU cooler design, yet doesn’t compromise on cooling performance. It also packs a range of great features as standard, such as the use of a Double-V heatpipe design, twin 120mm DynaLoop PWM fans, a built in LED strip on the top and of course support for multiple CPU sockets.

    Cooler Master has designed the V6GT as a no compromise air cooler and has come up with several new key improvements that makes this one of the best CPU air coolers on the market. Cooler Master put V6GT coolers through torture tests by using them to cool a pair Xeon X5670 processors on EVGA’s Classified SR-2 motherboard and a i5 655K processor.

    The Xeon X5670 processors were overclocked to 4 GHz, yet the V6GTs kept both CPU’s at sub 70 degrees C, and the i5 655K was overclocked to a mssive 5.269GHz under 66 degrees C, even during extended periods of extreme benchmarking at these high clock speeds.

    By adding 55 densely stacked fins asymmetrically with a five degree tilt the V6GT has lower airflow resistance than your average heatpipe based cooler. This means that more air can be pushed through by the twin 120mm fans which results in vastly improved heat dissipation. The twin V shaped heatpipe layout maximizes the contact area between the 6mm heatpipes and the heatsinks, as well as putting all of the heatpipes in a direct path of the airflow.

    DynaLoop PWM fans
    The fans used on the V6GT uses a new type of bearings known as DynaLoop which extends the life of the bearings to 40,000hrs. The new wave shaped fan blades increases the airflow while maintaining an even air pressure which leads to less fan noise. Both fans also features PWM fan control which further helps reduce the noise from the fans when the CPU is idle or under a low load. The fans are also easy to install and remove thanks to a new tool-free snap-on fan cover. The fans operate at between 800 and 2200rpm and produce an airflow of 34 to 94 CFM per fan, yet the noise level is only a mere 15 to 38dBA.

    Made to look the business
    The V6GT manages to combine great looks with great performance. It builds on Cooler Masters famous V-series of coolers. The top of the V6GT has been equipped with a cover that houses an LED light strip and you can set the colour to blue, red or purple by simply adjusting the “engine oil cap” dial on the top of the cooler.

    Universal mounting kit
    The V6GT comes with a mounting kit that allows you to install it on all current CPU platforms. It’s supplied with all the mounting brackets, back plates and screws that you’d need, as well as a syringe of Cooler Master’s thermal paste. This means that there’s no need to buy any additional accessories to install the V6GT unlike some competitive solutions.

    You could see better temps with a Noctua and a couple of 2000 R4s on it too but I bought mine because it kept me under 80C running an hour of LinX with 1.325 vcore and 21x195 on the core.

    With 1.2v load and less then 80C load, 3800 passive is no problem in my 932 case. Lmk when it can do that then I'l be impressed.

    looks pretty underwhelming tbh...

    for some reason it looks like CM's own 212+ can outperform this thing

    Couple of things that I like about this heatsink:

    1. Comes with all mounting brackets specially for AMD
    2. Comes with a pair of fans
    3. Shrouds included

    TBH, the V8 was not very good, so I would really like to see if this will do well.

    The V-shaped heat-pipe array would be one of the differences between the CM V6 and the TT Frio.

    The Frio is a crappy cooler. But then, Thermaltake hasn't put out anything good in ages. Cooler Master on the other hand has the best budget cooler (Hyper 212), and in my opinion the best cases on the market (690 II, HAF-X). The two coolers do look a like with the plastic shroud, but I dare to say, that the Cooler Master one will almost certainly be better :D

    Hmm, I read this news on SweClockers (Swedish) first and there it says the cooler only has one fan included, as do Cooler Master themselves. So, who's wrong? Different markets gets different amount of fans?

    " ... a red LED fan with PWM speed control function and DynaLoop™ long life technology, snap-on cover to conveniently add a second fan if needed."

    That's the V6, the V6GT comes with two fans...

    Aight, I thought that might be the case. SweClockers messed it up since they wrote about the GT and that it comes with only one fan.

    Looks pretty good, but I agree the hyper 212+ proven to be better than a lot of coolers by Maximum PC could outperform this.
