Cooler Master unleashes the V8 GTS CPU cooler. It is powered by the same Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC) Technology that keeps high-end graphics cards cool while containing very high air flow within its fans.
V8 GTS 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.
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.
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. 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 result is the V8 GTS and ability to handle thermal loads up to 250W.
V8 GTS is available in Europe for a M.S.R.P of 79 € (taxes included).
