Not yet ready to make the jump to liquid cooling but the Cooler Master v8 fan died on me. Glad that Cooler Master have a replacement fan still available. Easy to remove (YouTube was a big help) and replace. Just make sure the fan is pointed is the right direction. Make note when you disassemble. Up and running with no problem.

I've had my CoolerMaster V8 for almost two years, when just a couple of months ago my system starting making the horrid noises of a fan dying. Digging into my computer I was disappoint to find it was the cooling fan inside my V8. When I initially went looking for the replacement, CM had none in stock so I just had to figure out a temporary replacement that has kept my computer running until they had the proper cooling fan back in.
My only disappointment is I purchased two replacements so I have a backup available in case it does belly up again in the future. But the shipping was as much as the cost of the parts.

Was using aftermarket high speed fan at 2500rpm to cool my V8 CPU Cooler. Decided to order the OEM fan which is operating at 2000rpm and CPU temps actually dropped 5 degrees centigrade! OEM Rocks! Shipping was fast, cost was very reasonable, Thank you Cooler Master!!!

Glad to be able to replace the exact fan that failed after at least 6 years of service, and for a fair price. Installed the new fan and I know it will last until I am ready to buy a new computer within the next year or two.

I ordered 2 of these, one to replace the fan in my computer and the other for my spare V8. I replaced both of them in less than an hour. After reading a couple of the comments, I did keep the rheostats off the old fans as spares. The original fans lasted about 2 1/2 years each with the computer on all the time, I only log out when not using it because of my solid state drive and to allow updates on drivers and software, especially security software. Not bad, considering the hours of use.

All the fans look new and work well. The only complaint is they are not any plastic bag to protect the fan blade from bending. Also, shipping is a little high.

I had bought this case when it first came out and loved it then . I bought another of these and found that they improved the case in the exact way I wanted. You can now remove the bottom cages and they put more 3.5 cages in. I didn't think the case could get better but I was wrong! You can tell they listened to customer feedback on this case. Buy this case you wont regret it, this is one of my favorite cases. Compact and great airflow with no compromises.

I received the red LED Cooler Master 120 mm replacement fan within 6 business days. I've just installed it today and everything is working tickety-boo. Faster shipping than anticipated. Thanks Cooler Master.
More importantly, my PC temps are now 3 to 4 degrees C lower, operating at 32-33-34-34. Prime 95 sees the temps reach 61 C under full load, while the CM 212 EVO saw them reach 71 C. That's a whole 10 degrees C lower. Awesome.

Well, my first replacement fan failed after one year of service. So this time I bought two to save on shipping costs and to have one as a spare. Also, I am still waiting for a replacement for the one that failed after one year. My understanding is that Cooler Master has a two year warranty on the fan. The replacement works perfectly and is very quite. The process of removing the failed fan and installing the new one is a little challenging because the two phillips head screws at the bottom brackets are hard to reach and the space is small to reach my big hands to put the screws back in. So I used a short magnetic head screwdriver to get them started and a small socket ratchet wrench to tighten them. Once I figured the technique out, it was easy to install the fan. Of course, I had to pull the ram sims and the video card to get at the screws and the motherboard 4-pin power connector. Now that I know how to do it the job will be easy if the fan fails again.
