Cooler Master V6GT RR-V6GT-22PK-R1
The progress made in the design and implementation of CPU coolers over the last few years has been little short of amazing. While both Intel and AMD provide perfectly adequate coolers with their boxed retail CPUs, enthusiasts will want to consider a third-party CPU cooler for their rigs from both performance and styling standpoints. Overclocking your CPU mandates something better than the stock cooler, and if you've a windowed case, looks don't hurt either. Cooler Master was founded to produce advanced cooling products, and in this review Benchmark Reviews looks at the latest in their line of "V" coolers, the Cooler Master V6GT RR-V6GT-22PK-R1.
Vendors of aftermarket CPU heatsinks face an uphill battle: most retail CPUs are delivered with a heatsink from the manufacturer, and any pre-built computer will of course have one, so the demand for an aftermarket unit is always going to be only a tiny fraction of the total computer market in terms of quantity. Aftermarket CPU coolers are the province of overclockers, and although performance is the primary consideration, other factors such as price, noise, and aesthetics can come into play as well. Cooler Master has a broad line of coolers ranging from stock-level replacement coolers to high-end enthusiast coolers; the V6GT represents the latest in their line of "V coolers" (which include the V8 and VTEC-enhanced V10) for the enthusiast market.
