Crucial System Scanner
 

It was nearly a year ago when we first spotted the Cooler Master V8; it was at CES in January, and back then it was accompanied by its two bigger brothers; the V10 and V12.  While the larger heatsinks have not made an appearance since, the V8 has been on the market for about a month now, having been launched around the same time as the very popular HAF 932 case.  This is surely no coincidence, as both parts share a very similar aggressive aesthetic.  We all know that aesthetics can only take us so far, however.  Does the V8 provide the performance that the name suggest?  Read on and find out!

Packaging:

The V8 is packaged in an attractive black box, and everything about it seethes with muscle car appeal.  I can just see this at a LAN party, with every gamer walking by and asking, "Does that thing have a Hemi?"  Oh yes, yes it does.

The top of the box shows the CPU compatibility; including the Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo, Phenom, Athlon FX 64 and the Athlon X2 64. 

The back of the box goes over the specifications, which we will look at a little bit later.
