Testing of the Coolermaster V6 GT

Over time, we've found that we have been able to get a better overclock on our i5 750 at a very respectable voltage of 1.4. We used this for the testing the V6 GT. During testing, we allow the system to sit idle for one hour and then measured the temperature. Afterward, we then loaded OCCT and ran a 30 minute bench session with priority set at high and recorded the temps at the end. Each core was recorded for more detailed performance stats.

Results

The Coolermaster V6 GT did well for itself in our test. We had every reason to think it would outperform the Scythe Yasya as the GT has the advantage of any extra fan. Out doing it by as much as five degrees. Better competition was the Armageddon by Prolimatech. In a single fan configuration the V6 ousted the Armageddon obviously. But things switched to the other foot when we added the second 140mm fan to the Prolimatech cooler. We can say the Armageddon had an advantage due to the larger fan.
