Introduction

One year ago at CES 2008, Shawn took pictures of two new air coolers that Cooler Master had on display. One was the V8, which he reviewed later in the fall. Sporting two huge banks of fins and eight heatpipes arranged in a "V" shape, the V8 dwarfs most other coolers. I say most because despite the absurd size of the too-large-for-most-midtowers V8, Cooler Master also had a V10 in the works. And as you might guess, yes it's even bigger.


But what will come as a surprise to most people is the direction Cooler Master opted to go with the V10. While externally it appears very similar to the air cooler on display at the CES booth, the original consisted mainly of a V8 cooler with an extra bank of fins and a second 120mm fan. But that's not the version we have received for review... oh no. A close look at the product packaging reveals the V10's trump card, 200W HYBRID TEC cooling. That's TEC, as in thermal-electric cooling. Oh, snap.

Join me as I take a closer look at the Cooler Master V10 CPU Cooler.
