Coolermaster V10 Hybrid T.E.C. CPU Cooler

V10The V10 offers many more features than the V8. The first would be the additional capabilities of cooling your ram while taking care of the CPU. Sitting atop a second set of aluminum fins is a 120mm cooling fan when placed properly blows right over your DIMM slots. We saw this in the Gemini cooler as well. This kind of cooler eliminates the need to deal with extra fans for ram cooling. Yet the most beneficial feature of the V10, if used right, is the T.E.C. base. With the right amount of heat to activate the thermal electric plate that is attached to the base of the cooler, the V10 is posed to offer a new level of performance and cooling and is capable of taming the most voltage hungry processor.

Introduction

Just a few weeks ago I reviewed the Coolermaster V8, a cooler that promises to be one of the best coolers available today. Except for being a bit on the heavy side, we really like the cooler as it performed very well. The V8 shows that Coolermaster is doing what is right for us overclockers and gamers. Since the introduction of the V8 to the world, the cooler has sold out in many places. However, to our surprise Coolermaster had sent us the big brother to the V8,the V10.

How a T.E.C. aka thermal electric cooling aka Peltier:

“The thermoelectric effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa. On the measurement scale of everyday life, a thermoelectric device creates a voltage when there is a different temperature on each side. Conversely (and, thermodynamically speaking, reversibly) when a voltage is applied to it, it creates a temperature difference. On the scale of atoms (specifically, charge carriers), an applied temperature difference causes charged carriers in the material, whether they are electrons or holes, to diffuse from the hot side to the cold side, similar to a classical gas that expands when heated; hence, the thermally-induced current.”

If we have gotten you all hyped up about the V10 before we have even begun the review, we hate say it, but you may have to wait a few days as all retailers we have seen only list it as pre-order status. LuLu from Coolermaster informed us the official launch date is geared for Feb 17.

A word from Coolermaster

The V10 carries the reputation of the legendary V8 and brings even more supercharged performance with a revolutionary hybrid TEC. V10 overpowers the competition generating over 200 watts of cooling power. With the hybrid TEC, V10 gives full control of the massive heat produced by top of line performing CPUs such as Intel Core i7. Cooler Master’s hybrid TEC technology intelligently activates only when the CPU reaches extreme temperature: enabling great cooling power without excessive energy consumption. The V10 carries the reputation of the legendary V8 bringing even more supercharged performance with a revolutionary hybrid TEC.
