The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Cooler Master V8 Ver.2 Triple Tower CPU Cooler, 8 Heatpipes, Vapor Chamber, Intel/AMD Sockets, 2x140mm PWM Fans, Red LED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beastly looks, monsterous size, incredible performance I always got along with the stock Intel E97378-001 CPU cooler - not because it was particularly good or anything, but it managed to cope with whatever I was doing. While the CPU was hot under heavy loads it wasn't throttling or overheating per say while playing GTA5 or anything, and as someone who only watched my brother slot in £600~800 worth of parts into a new computer, at that point hadn't really tinkered inside the PC and keep hearing about how fragile parts like the processor are, as far as I was concerned if it wasn't broke, I didn't have to fix it. That changed this summer. The stock cooler could manage a stable 70C under load during the winter and cooler days, but that's at ~100% CPU fan speed. It didn't have enough cooling power to shed the CPU heat in the middle of a heatwave, until one GTA session I saw my CPU climb to 95C over a period of time. So time for a new CPU cooler, then. This is what I picked. I'm a bit of a Coolermaster guy I suppose (CM 690 II case, GX 650W PSU, Sickleflow 120s and BC 140 fans, Recon mouse, Quickfire XT keyboard) but what I got still blew me away. Installation went fine - brackets were simple enough to mount even as a first timer, but considering the thing is so bulky, it's definitely something you're going to have issues fitting with your motherboard still in the case. Especially if it's a mid tower. Thing's bloody huge. Opted not to use the included paste - instead purchased some Arctic MX-4, and I have no comparison between the two. Poured it on a bit but too much is better then not enough, I suppose. There's a first time for everything. Missed the mounting position the first time I lowered it down, which I'm going to blame more on the size more then my inexperience, but the second attempt was fine. The two fan wires are very very short. While the right cable was a simple fit into my secondary CPU fan slot I had to contort the left cable around a heatpipe for it to reach the primary slot. The included Y-splitter cable adds plenty of extra length, but ironically too much for the little amount of space I have between the cooler and the top mounted fans, so I didn't use it. But yeah, the performance really did blow me away. Expected to come back down to 70C playing GTA during the hottest days and to really see the difference when it started to cool down outside. What I didn't expect was to find that I can't find a single combination of games, applications, or weather conditions that will push my i5-4670k (with standard 3.8Ghz clock) past 50C. I'm idling at 32~36C right now while it's 27~28C outside, and I almost crapped myself when it fell below 30 during a milder day, and this is with standard PWM fan control settings. There's some huge overclocking potential there if you know how to do it. All in all, maybe it's a bit overkill for my needs, but there's no denying it works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from haven't installed yet but packing and postage time are good was kept up to date with what was going on with my parcel. i have yet to install it as i am purchasing my parts to update my pc 1 at a time as i don't have complete funds to do it all at once. will update when fitted but seems good value for money. would recommend the company for delivery and customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent heatsink The Cooler Master V8 Ver.2 is a massively overpowered heatsink that i would reccomend to those that dont want water cooling and just want fan driven, while having superior cooling power, while it is virtualy silent. The only time you will notice the fans being on is when you manualy set it yourself past 40% speed. and to be honest youll never really need it higher than this unless you live in the sahara desert. or perhaps if your a serious overclocker. If you are a serious overclocker, take it from me - its the best fan driven heatsink on the market for its value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU Cooler This is a beast of a cooler, as previous reviewers have said measure your case. The case I am using is a Corsair 780T so there is plenty of room. To make it slightly easier to install, remove the two fans (undo 2 top hex bolts), which gives you more access to the mounting hardware to the CPU socket. Motherboard used: ASUS Maximus V Formula, CPU 2600K @ 4.6GHz Volts 1.38, Low temps 27C Max high temps 63C using Real temp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its big but awesome Its good stuff, just make sure your case is big enough to fit it in.
Date published: 2016-06-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money if you OC. The most important thing to note about this cooler is... it's beastly in size. I had to mod my case just to allow this cooler to fit, i highly recommend that you measure your available space to ensure you don't have any issues installing this device. Installation was a little fiddly due to space constraints, but this cooler has allowed me to OC to 4.0/4.5 Ghz. My only concern is that there is a slight metallic buzz coming from the unit.
Date published: 2016-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just chiilin'. What a cooler! It keeps my CPU very cool. 4 degrees Celsius at idle and 80% cpu use it is 25 degrees Celsius. You don't need water cooling when you have one of these :) A word of WARNING however. You need a wide case. Approximately 9 inches ( 23 cm ) wide will be okay. My case is the Coolermaster Haf X and there isn't much room left between the door and the cooler.
Date published: 2016-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to look at, Greater at Work Excellent choice for cooling a CPU. Works like a charm and keeps my Intel i6700k at around 35 degrees!!!!

Questions & Answers

is this cooler available with blue led,s

all of the led,s in my system are blue, so would look out of place, I am using a coolermaster haf case
Asked by: wilkie63
Im using the Antec eleven hundred case.. its a large mid-sized tower that made installing this heatsink very easy. All my other fans are blue too, including a 200mm exhaust. however i dont think the lightning matters much considering what it does, if the led came in other colors sure wouldnt be to shabby, but in my opinion you gotta put your cooling first above lighting.. because lighting is just cosmetic. Also it really doesnt look that bad at all.

would this cooler be suitable for an amd 9590? if not, what would you guys recommend? cheers.

Asked by: ob1kev
I would reccomend this as the "Final fan solution" especialy if your planning on overclocking, you wont have any trouble with this monster in your system. (just make sure to have alot of room) also seeing as your processor is an amd they dont get very hot to start with. However alot of people with your cpu in paticular do quote on using water cooling instead. Its really your choice at the end of the day, but its truly a giant value for the money considering its epic cooling power.
