PHYSICAL DETAILS - Coolermaster V8

The interior structure of the V8 has four heatpipes running through 57 fins while the smaller exterior portions have 39 fins with two shorter heatpipes each curved to resemble a scythe. The entire heatsink measures 120 x 128 x 161.1 mm (L x W x H) and weighs in at about 700 grams, 860 grams with the stock fan and cover.

The outer sections of the V8 have fins running vertically, creating a square grid when viewed from the side. If the fan didn't already have trouble pulling and pushing air from the center of the heatsink, this certainly doesn't help.

The fins on the inside are approximately 0.30 mm thick and spaced 1.80 mm apart on average. The fan is attached to a metal plate on the bottom with two screws. The upper portion of the fan is secured to the V8's top cover.

For some reason the cover is held on with hex screws rather than philips head, but can be removed using the provided Allen wrench. The fins on the outside are 0.30 mm thick and spaced 1.90 mm apart on average.

Fan and cover removed.

The base is flat, but slightly dull and there's a small unpolished pin prick at center.
