Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The V10 with Hybrid T.E.C. is the largest and heaviest cooler I have tested by far; do not underestimate the overall size of this. With an overall length of 235mm, or really close to 9" long, this cooler requires a bit more breathing room than most other coolers. All of the three sets of aluminum fins are cooled by one of the two included 90 CFM, 120mm fans that are oddly rated at a minimum of 17dBA. With a total of ten, 6mm heat pipes, only six of those are dedicated to cooling the CPU directly, one set that are vertical and a another set that are horizontal which further act as a RAM cooler.
This leaves four pipes traveling from the base on the opposite side of the V10. This is where the Hybrid T.E.C. comes into play. These four heat pipes are soldered to a metal plate which is in direct contact of the cold side of a 70 Watt peltier plate and these pipes are terminated at this point. On the hot side of the T.E.C., Cooler Master soldered two more "u" shaped heat pipes to a plate to eliminate the heat created when the T.E.C. is active through its own third section of the fins.
Cooler Master has set today the release date for the V10 with Hybrid T.E.C. and I have seen a few sites taking early purchases with shipments as soon as February 17th. As when Cooler Master releases any product, it soon hits the shelves in good quantities and is usually readily available to purchase. I can only assume this release will be no different, but we shall have to wait until it actually populates e-tailer's warehouse shelves.
I had got in touch with Cooler Master directly to ask about pricing, since this article goes out upon release. Their response to me was a suggested retail price to be set at $139 US. FrozenCPU has this cooler for pre-order at that pricing, but I have, however, been able to locate this cooler for a bit less, somewhere in the $113 US dollar range. With this kind of a premium price tag, I expect good things from the V10 and we will let the later test results speak for themselves. Lastly, this cooler is fully compatible to mount to anything from AMD socket 939 and above as well as Intel LGA775 and LGA1366.
