The box artwork leaves you in no doubt that the cooler that lies within is no shrinking violet, with two of the four sides depicting the V8 GTS in all it's red LED'd glory.  The other two sides give more helpful technical data and key features.

The Packaging itself is robust with the V8 encased in a high density foam rubber box.  Accessories are stashed away in their own separate box so as to prevent them damaging the main cooler.  Fixings are provided for most modern Intel chips from LGA775 up to the present day, and from AMD Socket AM2 onwards.  There's also a small syringe of TIM and a spanner to aid in fitting.  For the full list of socket compatibility please see the Technical Specification on page 1.

We often refer to Cooler Masters "Table cloth" multi language instructions, so to add a bit of scale we've shown them below with a 140mm fan taken from the V8.  Thankfully though they also come with a separate small fold out sheet which contains the instructions in English only.  Our only other real criticism here is that the images could do with being quite a bit bigger

Looks like it overhangs the first PCI-e slot. On my 2011 rig my D14 misses the first card by only a few mm.Quote

I like the looks of this but the noise levels would be a put off and obviously the loss in performance if you reduced the speed of the fans. considering you can get a D14 for £65 and a H100i for £87 it's main competition are viable options. But oh my it does look nice

I wonder when Noctua will bring out an AIO? lets face it, it's the way things are goingQuote
