What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler
  • It keeps my System at 24c when gaming. I really do like this Megatron Head cooler. It keeps it cool WOW, I'm running a MSI 990FXA-GD80 that had a Cool Master and it keep it at about 32c, Then is stopped performing.
  • No longer need to leave my window open in winter to keep my PC cool.
  • This beast is insane! After my pump in my custom water loop almost blew up, I decided to switch to air cooling. Me being an extreme person saw this and said "I must have it!" So I bought it.
  • Does a great job on cooling efficiency. Stable 32C. Never breaks 35C under load.
  • This is a massive improvement from my low grade Deepcool FROSTWIN v2.0.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler
  • The Cooler Master V8 GTS's unique design allows the heatsink placement to blow air out of the top of the case.
  • Covers up the top PCI-E slot on Z375 Godlike. Can be difficult to start mounting nuts due to headers.
  • Very very large (Can be a pro, depending on your chassis. My In-Win GT1 with clear window barely was able to close. It presses on the V8 a bit, and the V8 needed to be mounted sideways to even get close to fitting.)
  • Only downside is that it is massive and was 3 centimeters too long for my inwin 905 case, so I have to get a new, but I needed a new case anyway, so no real issue there.
  • On the large size, height wise, suggest adding to the description you need at least a 8" wide case
Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 High-end CPU Air Cooler
  • Easy to install, looks cool. Great size.
  • This was one of the easiest cooling systems to install. Has great size and it works great.
  • Great size and great cooling for the size.
  • Great combination of size and performance.
  • Just take care about the size of your cabinet / case because it's really big this cooler!

What customers say about "Features"
Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler
  • Comes with perfect amount of thermal paste
  • It looks amazing when installed. The noise is moderate but not noticeable when you don't focus on it. Overall good build quality with minor quirks.
  • Very VERY difficult to clean, if your case has a dust problem. Canned air just doesn't shine it up like new. It requires disassembly for proper "back to new" cleaning.
  • Noisy. A high pitched noise alternates between high-low frequency constantly.
  • The manual is horrendous. There is literally no way to make sense of the instructions if you're a person who likes to according to the book, or manual.
Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 High-end CPU Air Cooler
  • This is a great cooler, good performance and nice looking, and in my case very silent even at max fan speed.
  • The LEDs on top look very good, even is a closed case.
  • LED lighting effects are really cool! Totally recommend this cooler!
  • Quiet. Even when the fans are maxed the sound is hardly noticeable.
  • Straight forward installation. Solid mounting brackets.
