Last week Frostytech showed us that ASUS' Triton 85 heatsink was good for scrap metal only... this week Frostytech tests Coolermaster's new V8 heatsink. Now Coolermaster has been hit and miss of late with its heatsinks, so the experts at Frosty were quite impressed with the new V8 this time around.
"The Coolermaster V8 heatsink is one of the nicer thermal solutions from the company in a long while, and well worth your attention today. Built from four modular sets of aluminum fins, the V8 utilizes no less than eight heatpipes to give it a cooling capability of up to 180W! Each of the aluminum fin modules is set at 90-degrees to the other, so in effect the aluminum fins form a square grid when looking through one side to the other."
