cooler master V8

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
just wondering if the Cooler master v8 go enough for i5 2600k? i am going to upgrade my mobo and cpu but keep everything else. i plan to over clock to about 4.5 for steady use. i was thinking about getting a d14 but if the v8 is still good then ill stay with that.

what do you guys think?

if i was to pick one i would buy the cooler master v8 some might want to get the d14 i like the v8 one cause it has a controller at the back which is really easy to adjust the rpm's of the fans i dont think the D14 one has that

Your v8 will be just fine with your sandy Brigde, is a powerfull cooler.I7 2600k has only 95 w TDP , is no so hot like the 1366 platform where the TDP is 130 W.

The V8 is old, the D14 is a far better cooler than it. But you're fine with using both.

The question is what your preference is, do you want something that can cool and stay quiet? Get the D14, want something older that could still work and be more affordable? You could go with a V8, but hell you could spend $26 on a Hyper 212+ and be able to OC to 4.5ghz on a 2500k (might be a bit warm, but still doable).
