Cooler Master V10

Core i7 CPU Cooler Roundup

Now we have the Cooler Master V10. This would be the biggest air cooler that I have had the pleasure of using. The V10 is also the only hybrid cooler in the roundup. We recently had a full review of the V10 back in March by Brian. With a little prying Brian let loose of the V10 long enough to allow me to test it for the round up. I knew the V10 was big, but once in hand it hit me how big it truly is.

For a little fun and to put a little scale on it, I set a standard 12oz Dr. Pepper soda can next to the V10.

The V10 has a nice finish to the base and is nice and flat. It is not a perfect mirror finish, but I have seen worse.

The V10 covers most if not all of the motherboard’s top half. So a large deep case will be needed.
