hi
im assembling a new cheaper pc, an i5 750 for support of my main pc i7 950, i work at home doing 3d renderings and animations, the store will give me a free cpu cooler of my choice for being a regular customer and as part of their package this month if you bought a new pc. they only have 2 coolers available,
the THERMALTAKE SPINQ VT and the COOLERMASTER V8. almost same price on their list but you'll get a free one as a pc package ,which one should i get?
thanks in advance.

I have the CM V8 heatsink in my i7-920 computer. It does a good job of keeping the temps down; right now 29 degrees C at an ambient of 24 degrees C.

In my opinion after reading the review, I believe that the Thermalatke will also perform just as well - http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/thermaltake_spi...

Look at both heatsinks, and pick the one that you think will look better in your computer. They will both perform well.

Found something here that compares the V8 with the SPINQ VT:

If we need to trust these comparisons then it would be clear that the SPINQ VT is the way to go.


Thanks, wow i cant believe spinq vt running low even beats the cm v8 running high. I like the v8 little bit but i saw some good bad reviews about it. Im not familiar with the spinq vt but im impressed with its performance in that review, i hope that review was fairly executed. Really gives me hard time choosing.

Thats great, but i saw some reviews that the hyper 212 plus is better with v8? Is that true? I have a hyper 212 before and i trashed it because it didnt look good aesthetically. so it cooled your i7 920, so its a great cooler no doubt at least you have the actual experience with it, but its a huge cooler right? I am having thoughts of choosing v8 but im concerned if it will fit with the chasis aerocool rs9. Whats your chasis specs dimension? Thanks

I have the Cooler Master HAF 932 case. It is huge and could fit a small automobile engine in it! :) 

I looked at pics of your case: http://www.google.com/search?q=aerocool+rs9&hl=en&rlz=1...

Some pics show this case with components. It is a mid-tower case and the CM V8 heatsink will fit.

I installed the CM V8, recorded temps, and then dismantled it and I polished the base of the heatsink for better flatness. After re-installation, I checked the temps, and the temps were 5 to 8 degrees C less than before. That's how I obtained my current temps. Right now, 30 degrees C with an ambient temp of 23 degrees C.
