The Cooler Master V6GT arrives, makes other CPU coolers envious

Cool design, advanced features and great cooling performance

Looking for a CPU cooler that both looks great and still outperforms the competition? Your wait is over, as the Cooler Master V6GT combines a new thinking in CPU cooler design, yet doesn’t compromise on cooling performance. It also packs a range of great features as standard, such as the use of a Double-V heatpipe design, twin 120mm DynaLoopTM PWM fans, a built in LED strip on the top and of course support for multiple CPU sockets.

No performance compromises

Cooler Master has designed the V6GT as a no compromise air cooler and has come up with several new key improvements that makes this one of the best CPU air coolers on the market.

Cooler Master put V6GT coolers through torture tests by using them to cool a pair Xeon X5670 processors on EVGA’s Classified SR-2 motherboard and a i5 655K processor.

The Xeon X5670 processors were overclocked to 4GHz, yet the V6GTs kept both CPU’s at sub 70 degrees C, and the i5 655K was overclocked to a mssive 5.269GHz under 66 degrees C, even during extended periods of extreme benchmarking at these high clock speeds.

Features that matter

By adding 55 densely stacked fins asymmetrically with a five degree tilt the V6GT has lower airflow resistance than your average heatpipe based cooler. This means that more air can be pushed through by the twin 120mm fans which results in vastly improved heat dissipation. The twin V shaped heatpipe layout maximizes the contact area between the 6mm heatpipes and the heatsinks, as well as putting all of the heatpipes in a direct path of the airflow.

DynaLoop™ PWM fans

The fans used on the V6GT uses a new type of bearings known as DynaLoop™ which extends the life of the bearings to 40,000hrs. The new wave shaped fan blades increases the airflow while maintaining an even air pressure which leads to less fan noise. Both fans also features PWM fan control which further helps reduce the noise from the fans when the CPU is idle or under a low load. The fans are also easy to install and remove thanks to a new tool-free snap-on fan cover. The fans operate at between 800 and 2200rpm and produce an airflow of 34 to 94 CFM per fan, yet the noise level is only a mere 15 to 38dBA.

Made to look the business

The V6GT manages to combine great looks with great performance. It builds on Cooler Masters famous V-series of coolers. The top of the V6GT has been equipped with a cover that houses an LED light strip and you can set the colour to blue, red or purple by simply adjusting the “engine oil cap” dial on the top of the cooler.

Universal mounting kit

The V6GT comes with a mounting kit that allows you to install it on all current CPU platforms. It’s supplied with all the mounting brackets, back plates and screws that you’d need, as well as a syringe of Cooler Master’s thermal paste. This means that there’s no need to buy any additional accessories to install the V6GT unlike some competitive solutions.

This V6GT does looks good design or performance wise:rock:Replacing the fans with dual CM 2000 rpm/90cfm Red led fans will make it red hot stunning:rock:

Anywhere but there
Thanks for the update, Archer!

Since CoolerMaster STILL hasn't moved over to 8mm heatpipes I doubt this one will be much better than the last one. Even my poor Sunbeam CCT 120 has 4x8mm heatpipes, which makes the heat transfer as good or maybe a hair better than the V6GT's 6x6mm. When will companies realize that cross-sectional area works on a dimension squared principle. :-/ In other words, 8mm:6mm = 16:9 - almost twice as big, though the heat transfer capacity is more like 55-60% higher for the 8mm pipes ...
