ColerMaster v10???

Umm hi guys. Long story making short I was getting my motherboard replaced (bad overclock) and I can't find my backplate for zerotherm nirvana cooler. I was looking at colermaster v10 as a suppose to have tec in it. From what I understand your processor has to run "hot" enough for the unit to activate and give you nice temps drops. Right now I'm using stock heatsink since I need to use my computer....when is that heatsink coming out? Should I wait for that v10 to come out or just go for v8? Also Vigor Monsoon III grabbed my attention.....what you guys think? Wait for v10 or go with v8 or Vigor Monsoon III?

I installed a V8 in a build for a co-worker, and it's a very handsome piece of equipment. It's fairly heavy, but not as much as I thought it would be. It's a good cooler. Could you wait? Sure, yeah, if you wanted to. I'm all about getting what you need today rather than waiting for what 'might be' in the future.

Besides, I personally would not invest in new tech stuffs (like the V10) until after some thorough reviews are done--I don't like putting money into something I don't understand. That also explains why I hate tax season so much. Oy...
