Cooler Master V8 GTS Review
Published: 6th November 2013 | Source: Cooler Master | Price: £70 |
Most CPU coolers look quite lost inside the cavernous "Test Trooper". Not so the V8 GTS. It's one of the few coolers we've put in here that actually look well proportioned and at home, though at just 149.8mm in height it should fit in a good many mid towers as well as the lager full towers.
Whether you are onside with the intended V8 engine theme of the looks it's hard to deny that looking down onto the top of the V8 GTS is a lot nicer than looking down onto a sheet of aluminium with a number of crimped of heat sink nipples sticking out of it.
Powering up the PC brings the V8 GTS to life with the myriad of red LEDs illuminating the cooler. The light from the LEDs is actually surprisingly subdued and in no way offensive or blinding. This pleasing effect is down to the intelligent positioning of the LEDs, placed as they are on the underside and under the fascia to give an overall glow and down lighting effect. We're actually quite taken with it.
