Today we reviewed Cooler Master V10, a giant air cooler that besides having 10 heatpipes also uses a TEC (Thermo-Eletric Cooler), a.k.a. Peltier cooler. Will this device really make a difference in refrigeration performance? Let's see.

V10 design is really very different to anything else we have seen before. At first glance it is even difficult to have an idea how it really works because it does not look like any other cooler. Let's dissecate it in order to understand its anatomy.

The box is big, firm and eye-catching, with a nice black and red looks and the model logo, bringing also a socket LGA1366 compatibility disclaimer.

The cooler comes "stuck" into a foam protection and it takes some time to take it out of the box.

Inside the box we find the cooler, user manuals, installation hardware and a Cooler Master ThermalFusion 400 thermal compound sample.

In Figure 4, you can see the cooler. As we said, at first it is difficult to understand how it is positioned on the CPU. Looks like it will not fit in any position and not even inside a case.

The base, made in anodyzed copper, is very well polished. In Figure 5, you can see the reflex of a screw on the base surface.
