Will the new Coolermaster V8 GTS fit in an Antec 300 case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Guy's

I have been spending time on research for an upgrade for my custom HTPC. I have been looking at upgrading the processor from the AMD FX 4100 to FX 8350 and hoping to upgrade the graphics card so I can fully enjoy playing Total War Rome II.

However I am still pondering on water cooling but I am happy with air cooling. I currently use the Cooler master V8 which has been an awesome aftermarket cooler giving me 15c on idle 38-40 on load roughly that is!

I have been looking at the reviews on the Cooler master V8 GTS. I tried to measure the clearance as the V8 GTS uses 2x 140mm fans unlike the standard V8, which uses 1x 120mm fan and has good clearance in an Antec 300 case.

Has anyone on here purchased the V8 GTS if so I would like to know your thoughts if not I will still save for water cooling but for now I want to replace my old faithful V8 as its getting on a bit now and I'm constantly cleaning out so that the fan runs quieter. I have thought about just replacing the fan but to tell you the truth I'd rather just purchase a replacement or go for the GTS!

Thanks Guys any suggestions would be gratefully received!

That cooler was a great idea, but kinda failed in the market.
It has a TEC you see (peltier) and the peltier will not kick in till very high temps, which means unless it kicks in your not getting optimal thermal dissipation
