The first photos of the new Cooler Master cooler with a short “V10” name first appeared more than a year ago, namely in early January 2008. The solution created a real commotion at the time, to say the least of it. The cooler revealed a design using 10 heatpipes, three large heatsinks and two 120-mm fans! After that throughout the year we witnessed the arrival of a gigantic Scythe Orochi, copper Scythe Ninja and Thermalright TRUE, and even V10’s younger brother – Cooler Master V8. However, it didn’t diminish the interest and excitement about the upcoming newcomer that has been constantly pushed back to a later launch date.
Finally, in the end of January 2009 Cooler Master rewarded the patience of their fans with the official release of this wonder-cooler and today we are among the first to offer you a detailed review of this remarkable solution:
It turned out that the cooler uses a TEC module – thermo-electrical module operating based on Peltier effect that wasn’t mentioned earlier. Well, it is going to be even more interesting to see how efficient the new cooler turned out to be and if it will justify its high price, large size and weight.
