Packaging

The V8 GTS comes in some very attractive packaging. On the front is the "chromed" company name and the product name near the bottom, along with a large image of the powered cooler. It also points out at the bottom that this cooler uses Vapor Chamber tech, offers maximum cooling performance, and has a super long life bearing on the 140mm fans.

The next panel offers another angle to view the V8 GTS, but this time near the bottom Cooler Master places the socket compatibility lists.

The back offers information about the triple tower, its eight pipes and cooling performance; it also addresses the Horizontal Vapor Chamber, and finishes with information on the bearing and the 160,000 hours of life to the fans. This is all then repeated in seven other languages, before you run into the dimensional drawings at the bottom.

The last panel on the packaging uses the purple background we always see with Cooler Master products, and on it you will find the specifications chart that we covered on the last page.

Inside of the box you will find the white hardware box first. After removing that you can pull the top half of the dense foam inner packaging to remove the cooler. You can tell from the earlier images that the box took a pretty good hit in transit, but due to the two piece of foam surrounding the cooler, there was no damage to the cooler - it arrived in perfect condition.
