Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The V6 GT is aptly named based on how they have been named so far. Not only does this cooler utilize six, 6mm diameter, Nickel plated, copper heatpipes, but after they exit the copper base, the form a "V" shape as they pass through the fins to maximize the air flow that can get to each pipe. The pipes are held into their "V" formation with the fifty-five, densely packed, aluminum fins. These fins are a bit different, as they aren't exactly perpendicular to the heatpipes as one would expect. These fins carry a slight angle, and I actually took a double take, as it on first glance appears as if the cooler is leaning. This is a design feature, to aid again in maximizing the available air flow passing over them.
For a dual fan cooler it is relatively small, and only 165mm tall, so it should fit inside most cases, even mid towers. Due to the high density arrangement of the fins, Cooler master has chosen to use two fans that can provide up to almost 94 CFM of air, and have descent static pressure too. The combination of these two fans in a push and pull arrangement should have no problems dealing with the heat of today's processors, but let's let the T.E.C.C have the last word there. These two fans can be plugged in separately, but Cooler Master does send a 4-pin PWM connector that splits into two more connections, so you can still use the PWM feature for both fans. You will find one other connection coming from the base of the cooler, a 4-pin Molex connector. This is specifically to power the lighting in the top of the cooler.
Since we are getting a sneak peak at the V6 GT and the actual launch isn't until the end of June, I have to say you must sit and wait a little bit while stock is shipped and starts to arrive on shelves. I am pleased to say that I do have some pricing figures for you. Cooler master is setting a MSRP of the V6 GT at $69.99 USD. While the cooler does creep well over that $50 mark I like to see them try for, it is less than half of what the V10 released for, and is slightly more than the V8, which I didn't get the opportunity to test. How about we get a look at the packaging and the V6 GT, and let the testing decide if the pricing is right against the many, many coolers we have listed.
