Coolermaster V8

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I built my computer last week and i installed the Cooler Master V8, when i purchased it i knew it wasn't the best but close in most cases by a few degrees so i went on looks. However i'm now worried about the weight of the cooler, I'm afraid it could damage my motherboard, but since I'm speaking from no experience i could just be paranoid.

Also to do with my temperatures, i originally had 24-27 on idle and 34-36 under load (rough estimates I'd alt tap during bf3 to check thermals because I'm paranoid) but i discovered i applied too much thermal paste so i took the cooler off cleaned it up and re applied by applying a thin layer this time then mounted the cooler. Since then i also enabled the turbo setting with in the bios to 3700ish mhz, but I've noticed that my idle temperatures now appear to be 25-28 and 38-44 in games and such (GPU appears unaffected) my room temperature shouldn't have changed since resetting the cooler but its at about 24-26 i'd say didn't actually check a gauge.

My main fear is I've reset with a air bubble, but i also feel i might just be paranoid, and since I've turned turbo on that may account for the increased temperatures I'm seeing.

throw a delta 120mm x 25mm fan and a fan controller and you'll be fine, thats what i did to my last one if you can stand the sound then go for it

At those temps that difference means nothing to me, you should be fine. The only time you start worrying about that is when you're running 60+ degrees.

Don't worry about it

The V8 is a horrific cooler, you're doing pretty well with the temps that you have, and 1 - 2 c variance isn't anything to worry about. As far as weight, there are many significantly heavier coolers out there, nothing to worry about. I had a V8 before I knew anything at all about coolers, what a waste of $$ :-\\

As long as you mounted the cooler correctly then you'll be fine. This is one of the reasons I hate massive air coolers like this. I got the V8 GT for my 2600k and was amazed at how massive it was as well as the strain that must be on the mobo around the mount. +1 on the suggestion to throw on another fan.

Alright Thanks for the advice, i was just paranoid i messed something up of it would break my computer. I'll try getting another fan see if i can drop the temp more, I mainly like this cooler because of the visual and the red led, matches my cm storm scout case. Just unfortunately the red led doesn't have a switch so with out requiring the fan i can't get it to turn off with the case LED switch, which is probably my next project to do.

i used the v8 to cool my qx9650 to 4500mhz it never got above 65*c with my delta fan in it. it moved 150cfm at 56dba that made the v8 sound powerful lol
