I had been wanting a V10 since 2009, and now 2015, I finally found a used one for sale and got a great deal!
Sadly, people on the Internets make fun of this cooler and bash it, but it's great because it's unique and rare. Cooler Master only makes V8s now.
I'm looking at this as we might at real car engines/manufacturers. This model is just not available anymore. There were a bunch of V6s and V8s (and still way too many 212s, though we all know how great the 212s perform for the monies). Having this V10 makes my rig special. So far, only one other builder on this site has a V10.

This thing is enormous! I wasn't sure about buying it, because I thought it wouldn't fit my case, but here we are. (According to In-Win, 301 supports heatsinks up to 161mm, and this monster is around 163mm and stuff). I love the RAM-cooling fan, and CPU temperatures are very good, considering I live in a tropical country with average temps above 30°C. (It also helps to hide my ugly RAMS, yay!)
