The new V6 GT CPU cooler from Cooler Master is the first cooler we've had on our Intel i7 test system from Cooler Master and overall it scored very well in our testing. The V6 GT is following in the footsteps of other Cooler Master coolers such as...

As with the original V6, the Cooler Master V6 GT is a big, good looking cooler with a robust, easily installed mounting solution. The GT has much better cooling performance thanks to an additional fan and a very nice lighting feature that adds some...

Ever since the V8 and V10 CPU Coolers Cooler Master has not introduced anything similar, performance-wise that is, and so i was really curious as to what the V6GT was capable of. Naturally since it has the number 6 indicating it is the...

And so competition continues. If you looking for a high performance CPU cooler then you might just found your best option. Cooler Master V6GT has performed really good in our test environment with i5-655k Intel processor. Keeping temperatures low is...

Overall the Cooler Master V6GT is a pretty nice cooler. With features such as the unique "Double-V" heat-pipe array and tilted asymmetrical aluminum fins along with the included dual 120 mm fan setup with DynaLoop Bearing technology the entire setup...

The Cooler Master V6 GT truly looks great and performs better than expected with the extreme Intel Core i7 980X which we overclocked also. Its amazing what can be achieved by Air Cooling alone with the help of the dual 120mm fans and the V shape...

At a retail price point of $70, Cooler Master has set the bar for mid-range priced cooling. When you compare it to the more expensive NH-D14 and various self-contained water cooling counterparts, it's hard to deny the appeal. This is definitely one...

There is an old maxim that says “quantity has a quality all of its own” and in our opinion, the Cooler Master V6 GT personifies this. It isn’t an absolutely massive heatsink of Noctua D14 stature nor is it a slim little thing like the...

The masters of cooling decided to freshen up their CPU cooling line and turn it up a notch. As such these rascals released a new CPU cooler that follows in the footsteps of the V8 and V10 CPU coolers from Cooler Master. The all new model comes with...

Cooler Master's V6 is named after the 'V' pattern of its six heat pipes, and follows on from the well-received V8 and V10 models. The arrangement is supposed to help spread the heat about better than other designs where the heat pipes are in...

Cooler Master hit a home-run with this cooler. I have had the pleasure of testing some of the best CPU coolers available in the last few years and I am happy to report that the V6 GT is at the top of my list for air coolers. It looks good, its not...

All four coolers being tested today are impressive in their own way. Titan offers a unique appearance, solid thermal performance, easy installation and the quietest operation when using the fan adapter. Cooler Master on the other hand offers an imposing...

Performance:The V6 GT does its job when it comes to performance. It is on par with other coolers, and it beats quite a few of them also. Where it really shines is its clean appearance. Surprisngly the V6-GT is also fairly quiet making it a great...

The Cooler Master V6 GT is one impressive CPU cooler from top to bottom, right down to the packaging it comes in. I have always appreciated Cooler Master's attention to detail and the excellent quality fit and finish they deliver even in their...

At an estimated retail price of around S$99, the Cooler Master V6GT is one of the more expensive air-cooled models in the market. The company's own V8 cooler costs less, albeit being an older model. Add to the fact that we weren't terribly...

Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, and test programs. That said, the ranking produced by these tests is accurate and gives a good idea...

Cooler Master has already established an excellent reputation for their ‘V’ cooling line, which sets an expectation for the newcomer V6GT. Equipped with the V-style heat pipes that have aided the family’s success, a customizable LED...

The V6 GT is a force to impress. However, at a price of $70 USD, it can be a tough pill to swallow, as some very good air coolers out there cost half as much, most notably Cooler Master's own Hyper 212 Plus which is a fantastic value and performer...

Cooler Master really has worked hard on this CPU cooler. We see many companies come out with new CPU coolers where all they have done is add some more heatsink fins or add more fans. Cooler Master is not one of those companies; the V6 GT is not only...

We love the performance we saw in our test from the Coolermaster V6 GT. We see that the naming of the series after the number of cylinders in a car is more than a gimmick. The cooling power we saw in the cooler reminded me of the performance that Ford...
