PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
There's no doubt about it, this V8 is big. At roughly 4.7x5x6.3 inches, it dwarfs the vast majority of coolers on the market. At almost 2 pounds, the V8 also scoffs at motherboard OEM maximum heatsink weight recommendations. A copper base and eight 6mm heatpipes transfer CPU heat to the aluminum fins. It sports a relatively low-speed, quiet 120mm PWM fan with an included VR fan speed controller. With a rated cooling capacity of 180 watts, the V8 should have no problem dealing with the hottest CPUs out there.
The price on this bad boy is still up in there air, but through a little digging I could find a price range between $50-$75.
The V8 comes in an attractive, and very large box. Inside, you'll find the cooler, another box containing the mounting hardware, and a manual and warranty card.
