Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 Review

Rating: 8.0.

Cooler Master have earned a strong reputation in the CPU cooling sector, and not just because of the Hyper 212 EVO. Today we are looking at a monster, double-140mm fan behemoth – the MasterAir Maker 8. It uses 3DVC (3D Vapour Chamber) technology and utilises a whopping 8 heatpipes. Is this the pinnacle of high-end air cooling?

The Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 is a huge air cooler, and it has a price-tag to match at £99.95 here in the UK. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the competition at this price.

Read on for our full review where we look at the features, installation process and performance before giving our final verdict.
