Cooler Master V8 GTS CPU Cooler Review

Testing equipment and performance

In order to provide you with the most professional and accurate reviews, we are using the following equipment to test the performance of coolers. The system automatically calculates the Delta T temperature, which is the difference between the ambient temperature and the temperature at the top of the thermal core. We test each cooler with the included thermal grease.

  • Custom copper thermal core with automatic power controls
  • Watlow heat generation rods
  • PT100 temperature sensors
  • Lutron DW-6091 Power Analyzer
  • SL-5868P digital sound level meter
  • CompuLAB interface
  • MyPClab thermal interface
  • Custom calibration box
  • Custom software

More information about our testing equipment and methodology can be found in this article.

As it can be seen from the table above, the thermal performance of the Cooler Master V8 GTS is excellent, allowing it to surpass most high-performance air coolers and even a few all-in-one liquid cooling solutions in the process. However, we still stand slightly disappointed, as we expected such a behemoth and pricey product to perform even better. The two 140mm fans running at maximum speed though are rather noisy and would be annoying for casual users and during typical everyday PC usage. Thankfully, both fans are PWM controlled, allowing your motherboard to control their speed.
