I'm actually quite surprised at it's performance...

I wouldn't change from my TRUE Black Push+Pull but still, for future builds / friends builds... not bad at all!

Great review airman! :)

50 bucks for 3 more inches sounds good to me

I won't hide the fact that I am very impressed with this cooler. I looked at reviews for other heatsinks (Cooler Master V8, Noctua, Fenrir) on the same processor and clock speeds, adjusted the temperatures to simulate the ambient temperatures being the same, and found that the V6GT keeps up with them all.

Thanks for the feedback!

Can we see this vs the D14 anytime soon? I think it would be one close fight with the Noctua winning by a few degrees.

Great review btw!

I am the reason we can't have nice things.

According to legitreviews.com the V6GT is is only a partial degree off of the Noctua DH-14 at IDLE and equivalent at LOAD.

A test from TweakTown says the same thing, at load the V6GT is only one degree away from the DH-14.


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
