V6GT follows in the footsteps of the revolutionary V8 and V10 CPU coolers from Cooler Master.  Designed with a muscular engine look, the V6GT fits nicely with any performance hardware.  The V6GT also features new mechanical structure that includes:  V-shaped heatpipe array, asymmetrical aluminum fins (which are densely stacked for optimal cooling), two 120mm silent fans with PWM speed control function and DynaLoop™ long life technology, snap-on cover to conveniently replace fan if needed.


Supports Intel Sandy Bridge 1155 socket


  • Densely stacked asymmetrical tilted aluminum fins for muscle cooling performance.
  • "Double-V" heatpipe array helps spread out the six heatpipes to fully utilize the cooling fins on the cooler. It also allows airflow to reach each individual heatpipe as opposed to traditional coolers.
  • Accelerating twin high-speed PWM fans with tool-free fan boxes deliver invincible cooling capability.
  • Engine oil cap controls the LED strip with color changing function.
  • DynaLoop™ Bearing Fan: Innovated self-lubricating bearing mechanism decreases oil-loss commonly seen on sleeve bearing fans. Evolutionary wave blade fan provides tremendous airflow with steady pressure.
  • Snap-on cover to conveniently add a second fan if needed.

"At the end of the day the Cooler Master V6 GT is a good choice if you are looking for a CPU cooler that looks good and performs just as well."

» Details Highly Recommended : January 2011

"The Cooler Master V6 Muscle GT heatsink unleashes the power of your AMD Phenom II x4 965 processor by keeping it at just 39 degrees Celsius when overclocked to 3.655 GHz and under 100% load!"

Tweaknews: Top Rank Award : December 2010

"As with the original V6, the Cooler Master V6 GT is a big, good looking cooler with a robust, easily installed mounting solution.  The GT has much better cooling performance thanks to an additional fan and a very nice lighting feature that adds some visual interest to the package."

» Details 4 Stars : October 2010

"The [V6 GT] is rated to over 200w cooling capacity, far more than any consumer processor specified TDP at this time. This is obviously for moving some serious heat, fast and hopefully quietly."

» Details 10/10 : September 2010

"If you looking for a high performance CPU cooler then you might just found your best option. Cooler Master V6GT has performed really good in our test environment with i5-655k Intel processor. Keeping temperatures low is what this unit have been designed to and it does as advertised."

Techgage: Editors Choice : September 2010

" This is quite simply the best performing cooler that does not infringe upon the rest of your hardware. It's not too heavy and it even has excellent styling."

Hardwarecanucks: Dam Innovative : September 2010

"[The V6 GT] isn’t an absolutely massive heatsink of Noctua D14 stature nor is it a slim little thing like the Cogage TRUE Spirit but it makes use of a multitude of heatpipes, densely packed fins and two high speed fans to get the job done. And let us tell you: it does this job very, very well indeed."

PCWizKid: Recommended : August 2010

"The Cooler Master V6 GT truly looks great and performs better than expected with the extreme Intel Core i7 980X which we overclocked also.  Its amazing what can be achieved by Air Cooling alone with the help of the dual 120mm fans and the V shape heatpipe design in the fins. "

» Details Gold Award Recommended : August 2010

"The V6 GT does its job when it comes to performance. It is on par with other coolers, and it beats quite a few of them also. Where it really shines is its clean appearance. Surprisngly the V6-GT is also fairly quiet making it a great choice."

TBCS: 5/5 Approved : July 2010

"Cooler Master hit a home-run with this cooler. I have had the pleasure of testing some of the best CPU coolers available in the last few years and I am happy to report that the V6 GT is at the top of my list for air coolers."

» Details Editors Choice : July 2010

"the Cooler Master V6 GT is NOT coming out of my case, and if you are looking for a serious cooling solution with good looks, the V6 GT should probably be in your case as well."

» Details Approved : July 2010

"If you are new to the game and want to dabble with a little overclocking as well as get a nice upgrade then this cooler has your name on it."

» Details Silver Tachometer : July 2010

"Functionally, the V6GT is excellent: its dual fans move enough air under PWM control to provide good performance without much noise, and provide exceptional performance at their highest settings."

» Details 10/10 Gold Award : June 2010

"Equipped with the V-style heat pipes that have aided the family’s success, a customizable LED light that accompanies the slick, muscle car appearance, and the step up to two-fans as opposed to its predecessor’s one, the GT has definitely earned its spot in the star-studded line-up."

Proclockers: Highly Recommended : June 2010

"We love the performance we saw in our test from the Coolermaster V6 GT......The cooling power we saw in the cooler reminded me of the performance that Ford put in the 2011 Mustang six cylinder. Three hundred and five horses of pure power."

» Details Furious 5 of 5 : June 2010

"Overall performance was excellent and our heat tests showed that the Cooler Master V6 GT had plenty of heat capacity to spare despite the rise in C/W numbers between the tests.  Cooling and noise performance can be controlled given that the Twin DynaLoop Performance fans are PWM enabled."

» Details 9/10 : June 2010

"the V6 GT is not only designed to cool well, but to be efficient too.  Starting with the DynaLoop performance fans, these give the V6 GT the best airflow to RPM ratio from 800-2200RPM.  They also feature fluid dynamic bearings that increase the lifespan of the fans by 40,000 hours!"

» Details : June 2010

"The V6 GT performs like a champ.  We were very impressed with the cooling capabilities when we overclocked the 980X."

Tweaktown: Must Have Best Features : June 2010

"The V6GT offers dual 93+ CFM fans, tri-colored lighting, sex appeal and good results.  This Cooler Master [cooler] will make an attractive and efficient addition to any case."

» Details Great Hardware : June 2010

"The V6 GT looks good, performs well, and is a solid unit. Including not one, but 2 fans, as well as hardware for both, and all the mounting hardware you'd need to make it fit any recent socket (going back to LGA775 and AM2), it's a pretty good deal."

OCC Gold : June 2010

"the Cooler Master V6GT has to be by far one of the best coolers currently on the market and is a great choice for anyone who is looking for a serious air cooling solution. I strongly applaud Cooler Master's expertise in the manufacturing and production of the V6GT and would not hesitate to recommend it as a high end air cooling solution without jumping into the price range of water cooling."

» Details Recommended : June 2010

"One of the best features of the cooler is the dual 120mm case fans. The fans utilize PWM controls, which allow them to adjust the blade rotation as needed, and are both conveniently powered by a single 4-pin source."

» Details : June 2010

"Cooler Master said that the V6GT would outperform the V8 in their reviewers guide, and it did just that. The new Double V heatpipe arrangement and the Inclined Fin Array is a step in the right direction, but it could also have been the twin fans pumping almost 100CFM each through the CPU cooler."
