Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler Review
As I stated above, the Intel retail CPU cooler will work just fine for most processors, so long as you don't plan to overclock. If you want to get the most out of your CPU via overclocking, however, I would certainly recommend some soft of aftermarket cooling solution and as we saw here today, Cooler Master's V8 is an excellent candidate.
This CPU cooler has a lot going for it. Starting with pure aesthetics, this is one nice looking unit with a unique design. Four separate banks of cooling fins are sandwiched by a 120mm fan, all of which are connected to the base of the heatsink via eight different heat pipes. Cooler Master integrated a rheostat-style fan speed controller, accessible by using the included add-in card slot. All of the necessary hardware is included for installation as well as a tube of thermal paste.
Installation on an Intel LGA775 CPU socket requires removal of the motherboard from the case in order to install a backplate and secure the unit to the board. The included instructions were decently written with plenty of diagrams to guide you along.
