After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Heatsink installation went incredibly smooth and while the new Universal Pressure Mounting system did lock the heatink into place we feel that the top bar retention method seemed a little minimal considering all of the parts required to support it. The top bar method also relies on a 2-point mounting system with down pressure only applied to a single point in the middle of the heatsink.
Overall performance was excellent and our heat tests showed that the Cooler Master V6 GT had plenty of heat capacity to spare despite the rise in C/W numbers between the tests. Cooling and noise performance can be controlled given that the Twin DynaLoop Performance fans are PWM enabled.
Too bad the fans don't light up as well.
Now for our list of good things and bad things
"V" Heatpipe Placement
Dual Fans Included
Excellent Cooling Capacity
"Engine" Styling to Cover Heatsink
Fans don't light up
