CoolerMaster has a liquid surprise for you

Subject: Cases and Cooling | January 20, 2014 - 04:36 PM |
Tagged: coolermaster, Nepton 280L, liquid cooling system

FrostyTech have seen a lot of coolers over the years, lately there has been a large influx of liquid cooling systems to review which for the most part all perform relatively the same.  It has been a long time since they saw a new product offer a big increase in performance but Coolermaster came through with their new Nepton 280L.  Part of the great performance is likely due to the heat exchanger, 30mm thick and 311x140mm in size with a pair of 140mm PWM fans to allow you to choose the most powerful cooling possible or to reduce fan noise at the cost of temperature.  On high nothing could touch this cooler and even better, it stayed near the top when running quietly and you can pick it up for $150

"Coolermaster's Nepton 280L is the best performing all-in-one CPU watercooler Frostytech has tested... thus far. More surprisingly for us, the Nepton 280L managed to rise to the top of the 200W Intel LGA2011, 150W & 85W Intel LGA115x/775 and 125W AMD synthetic thermal heatsink test results charts. After testing +750 CPU thermal solutions, it's kind of nice to be surprised."

A pair of gaming peripherals from CoolerMaster

Subject: General Tech | September 26, 2013 - 02:46 PM |
Tagged: input, coolermaster, CM Storm, Havok, quickfire xt, gaming mouse, mechanical keyboard

Up for review at Overclockers Club is a pair of CM Storm peripherals, the Havok gaming mouse and the Quckfire XT mechanical keyboard.  Their review unit had Cherry Blue switches but you can choose your favourite Cherry switch when you order the keyboard.  For those who prefer a minimalistic looking keyboard with a lot of hidden features this is a great choice.  The Havoc gaming mouse is also fairly plain looking and also hides a variety of features. This model is definitely a right handed mouse and best avoided by those with tiny hands but for right handed folks who like to have a hand full of mouse the Havoc could be the peripheral you are looking for.

"Overall I really enjoyed the CM Havoc gaming mouse. I usually don't go for the fat mice, but this is one you can definitely be a chubby chaser for and still be thought of as okay. It is definitely set to fancy those with a palm grip and despite having small hands there's not too much there. It is built nice and sturdy and even some rage smashes of the mouse have not shown any instant signs of loss. The little bit of lighting really adds to the mouse in my opinion; for some reason I fall into the category of loving a little bit of customization through a little bit of lighting on my peripherals. The lighting is subtle enough and you can turn it off completely without it looking like it is broken. I didn’t like that I couldn’t have my full RGB spectrum, but I can settle with the standard options provided. The mouse glides quite well even on the cheapest of mouse pads and is great for many hours of game play, work, and whatever else you use your mouse for. It's just a nice simple connection between you and your machine."

CoolerMaster joins the new craze, in ear gaming headphones

Subject: General Tech | July 23, 2013 - 03:41 PM |
Tagged: audio, coolermaster, CMStorm Pitch

It seems that over the past month a new type of headphone has hit the market, an in-ear style gaming headset with an inline microphone.  While this might not make sense to many readers who game on a full system at home for those of you who game on laptops or at LAN parties might really appreciate the small size of these headphones.  The CMStorm Pitch do suffer from the same problem all inline mics share, the dreaded rub against the shirt interference and the quality of sound produced by the small drivers is not the highest quality.  On the other hand R&B Mods were impressed by the bass produced and liked the way the in-ear style blocks any outside noise from interfereing with your gaming.

"Today we take a look at some earphones from gaming the manufacturer Cmstorm. They sent us their latest Pitch earphones that at least look very cool, lets find out how well they perform."

Build the CM Storm QuickFire Stealth keyboard you want

Subject: General Tech | July 8, 2013 - 01:32 PM |
Tagged: Cherry MX, coolermaster, CM Storm QuickFire Stealth, input

The Cherry MX switches on the CM Storm QuickFire Stealth are noticeably different from competitors keys, seeing as how the label is not on the top of the key but is instead on the side of the key facing the user.  The type of Cherry MX switches on the keyboard is up to you as there are four different models, allowing you to choose between Blue, Red, Green and Brown so that you get the keyboard you truly want.  That is not the only customizable feature, you can swap in red keys for your favourite buttons, there are LEDs and even the repeat rate which you can read about at Neoseeker.

"If you're particularly troubled by the prospect that all those labels on the keys of your mechanical keyboard may rub off or get discolored as a result of your fingertips, while still needing something compact, Cooler Master just might have you covered with its CM Storm QuickFire Stealth.

Its "Phantom Keys" move all key labels to the front-facing side face of the keys, leaving the very top surfaces that you actually type on blank. The QuickFire Stealth also eschews a number pad to keep a trim figure. Hit our review to see if all this adds up to a mechanical keyboard that is as useful as it its unique design decisions."

Would you touch a Green Cherry?

Subject: General Tech | March 8, 2013 - 11:29 AM |
Tagged: cherry mx green, mechanical keyboard, model m, coolermaster, CM Storm Trigger

The Tech Report got their hands on a keyboard using a new type of Cherry MX switch, the CM Storm Trigger.  This is a keyboard for the heavy handed, both the force required to actuate a key and the bottom out is significantly higher than any other Cherry switch as well as the venerable IBM Model M, especially the larger sized keys.  That might be well received by those who find other keyboards to be spongy, or gamers who want the feel of a buckling spring on a better looking keyboard than the old IBM one.  Check out the review to hear the keyboard in action.

"Cooler Master has released a keyboard based on a little-known mechanical key switch: the Cherry MX greens. We've compared this offering to an IBM Model M and another keyboard based on Cherry's more popular blue switches."

A case of a different shape; Cooler Master's HAF XB

Subject: Cases and Cooling | November 16, 2012 - 01:09 PM |
Tagged: coolermaster, HAF XB

While it might not look it at first glance the $100 Cooler Master HAF XB can fit a full ATX board inside its squat interior.  The case actually measures 17.4" x 13" 16.7", with a removable motherboard tray to help you install your components in what might otherwise be a difficult case to work with.  It comes with a pair of fans and you can add more to ensure air cooling, Legit Reviews were glad to see that there is also enough space for a radiator for those preferring water cooling.  Installation can almost completely be done without tools and the inclusion of 2.5" bays will make SSD users smile.  Check out the full review.

LR_HAF_XB_5.jpg

"The HAF Xb LAN Box Chassis is the newest addition to the Cooler Master line of enthusiast PC cases. The CM HAF Xb was designed with transportation and open bench testing in mind and the end result is a new form factor! The HAF Xb can look like a normal case one second and then be quickly converted into an open air test bench with the removal of the side and top panels. Read on to see if this $99.99 case has the features you need!"
