Today CoolerMaster announced two cases, the MasterCase H500P and MasterBox MB600L and there are already some reviews of the MasterCase posted, which you can see below.  The MasterBox MB600L is larger and less flamboyant than the MasterCase and is a better choice for those of us who prefer less RGBs in their lives.

The MB600L will accommodate GPUs of up to 400mm, heatsinks 160mm in height or radiators of 360mm if you prefer watercooling.  You can get the MB600L in red, blue and gunmetal exteriors and there will be models with an optical bay if you do still use DVDs.  The case will sell for $50 and is available now.

The MasterCase H500P is for those who want a case that stands out, the front panel shows off two 200mm RGB fans which can be controlled from compatible motherboards and there is space for two more to be installed on the top.  If you prefer watercooling, you can replace the fans in both positions with up to a 360mm radiator.  There are two PCI slots at the rear of the H500P so you can vertically mount your GPU to show it off, without needing additional brackets. 

You can see some reviews of the MasterCase below.

Cooler Master Cosmos C700P; size of the entire universe man ...

Subject: Cases and Cooling | September 28, 2017 - 01:04 PM |
Tagged: cooler master, cosmos C700P, cosmos, XL-ATX

Monolithic is a word that instantly springs to mind when you see the CM Cosmos C700P.  It stands at 639x306x651mm (25.2x12x25.6") and weighs in at 26.2 kg (57.8lbs) naked, fitting every style motherboard from XL-ATX down to Micro-ATX.  Creative souls might be able to fit a few mATX boards in this beast.  As befits a case of this stature, the front panel includes a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C port and four USB 3.0 ports in addition to audio jacks and RGButtons.  The interior is something you need to behold, thankfully the Guru of 3D offers plenty of pictures in their full review

Cooler Master's MasterPulse MH320, bargain or bust?

Subject: General Tech | August 17, 2017 - 01:28 PM |
Tagged: audio, cooler master, masterpulse MH320, gaming headset

The MasterPulse MH320 gaming headset is a mere $40 on Amazon right now and TechPowerUp wanted to determine if it was a bargain or not.  The specifications are reasonable, 40mm neodymium drivers and a 20-20,000Hz frequency response, a bi-directional microphone and 3.5mm plugs, sans USB.  In testing they found spatial positioning to be a weakness, if you depend on audio clues to detect your enemies you will be disappointed but for games which do not require this feature as well as for listening to music the MH320's are a good deal.  They were also a big fan of CM utilizing a dual headband design on a budget level headset.  For more details head on over and read the full review.

"By releasing the MasterPulse MH320, their least-expensive gaming headset to date, Cooler Master tries to grab the attention of gamers on a very tight budget. Even though it costs a mere $40, it offers a dual-headband design, a foldable bi-directional boom microphone, and a few other interesting features."

Polybutylene terephthalate is in, the Cooler Master MasterKeys L PBT

Subject: General Tech | July 4, 2017 - 01:58 PM |
Tagged: input, cooler master, MasterKeys L PBT, Cherry MX, mechanical keyboard

The MasterKeys L PBT keyboard offers typists a lot of choice, there are models featuring Cherry MX Red, Brown, Blue, Green, or Silver so you can choose the type of switches you prefer.  The PBT portion of the name refers to the keycaps, which are thicker than the more common ABS keycaps you find on most keyboards, a feature which Techpowerup were quite taken by.  The price is also uncommon for a mechanical keyboard as both the full sized model and the TKL model are priced under $100.  Drop by for a look.

"Cooler Master have listened to consumer feedback and with their MasterKeys PBT series they have thick PBT plastic keycaps out of the box on all the switches. The keyboard also includes onboard support for multiple OS and typing layouts, macro recording and an option for the rare Cherry MX Green switches; all for less than $100."

What, no Cheez Whiz? Still, it is thermal paste round up

Subject: Cases and Cooling | January 26, 2017 - 04:02 PM |
Tagged: thermal paste, Arctic Silver, Arctic MX, cooler master, MasterGel Pro, CRYORIG, EKWB, thermal grizzly

Kitguru just tested seven thermal pastes; Arctic Silver 5 and Céramique 2, Cooler Master's MasterGel Pro, Cryorig CP15, EKWB Ectotherm and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.  They wanted to see what performance difference, if any, existed between them for no matter how effective your cooler is, it can't dissipate heat that is not transferred to it from your CPU.  Their test was conducted with a i7-4790K CPU and Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED CPU Cooler and the results show that the incumbent is not necessarily your best choice.

"Following on from our previous articles about fan configuration and static pressure vs airflow fans, today we are looking at thermal paste. Specifically, we are hoping to find out whether or not choosing different types of thermal paste actually makes any difference. To do this, we test 7 products from 6 companies to see how much difference thermal paste really makes."

Introduction

Cooler Master's MasterLiquid Maker 92 is a unique liquid CPU cooler that fits all of its parts into one cluster atop the processor, and does it with a clever, hinged construction that allows it to be switched from an upright to a horizontal position at will. While the Maker 92 only occupies about as much space as a large tower air cooler in its upright position, the ability to fold it down provides both enhanced clearance and the option of directing airflow down to help cool motherboard components. But the big question for this cooler is just how effective can a closed-loop system be when it’s this compact? We’re about to find out!

Maker_92.jpg

Let's get part out if the way right off the bat: specialty small form-factor products generally don't offer competitive price/performance numbers, and critics are quick to point to this aspect of SFF computing. The small form-factor side of enthusiast PC building is a pretty small niche, and a product like the Maker 92 might not be for you; but what is important to consider when looking at a specialty product like this is the performance for its size, as designs of the most compact cooling components typically sacrifice something in this regard given their reduced surface area, smaller fan diameter, etc.

Most SFF solutions for processor cooling are of the air variety, with liquid being an option if a given enclosure supports your AiO (or custom loop) cooling of choice. Ultra low-profile CPU air coolers are popular for slim builds, and a product like the Maker 92 isn’t going to replace one of these if your enclosure of choice has a very low profile. Any system using a standard height PCI Express graphics card will work, though that top fan may have to come off depending on the case - which of course will affect cooling performance (in theory, anyway). But enough speculation! Let’s take a close look at this cooler and test out the fit and cooling prowess in both orientations.

The best three cases from this year?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | December 29, 2016 - 12:50 PM |
Tagged: Silent Base 600, riotoro, MasterBox 5t, CR1080, cooler master, be quiet!

Overclockers Club offers another look back at the 2016 market, this time choosing their favourite three cases which they reviewed.  Riotoro is a new name for many and they have started strong with their smallish CR1080 enclosure coming in third.  Cooler Master's Master series appears in second with the MasterBox 5t comes in second, perhaps in part because of the built in carrying handle.  In top spot is the Be Quiet! Silent Base 600, an impressive finish for a company most associate with inexpensive cases without the features seen in many high end products.

"From a quality perspective, I was most impressed by the fit and finish of the case. Top notch all the way. And the focus of the design is to be quiet - and that is what this case is all about. The dual-layer side window is something I have never seen before."

Who is the coolest of 2016?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | December 16, 2016 - 02:02 PM |
Tagged: heatsink, watercooler, FrostFlow 240L, ID-Cooling, Dark Rock TF, be quiet!, MasterLiquid Pro 280, cooler master

One product we have not had a dearth of in 2016 are heatsinks and watercoolers, we have seen numerous new products and upgrades to existing product lines.  Overclockers Club took a look back at all of the reviews they conducted this year and picked the top three coolers they saw in 2016.  ID-Cooling is not a particularly popular brand but as its FrostFlow 240L AiO cooler takes third place it may become more famous.  The DarkRock TF from be quiet! is the only air cooler on the list and this hunk of metal with a 220W TDP rating seems to deserve second place.  At the top of the list is a product that is very well known, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 280.  Drop by for links to all their reviews.

"As 2016 comes to a close, it is time for me to talk about the top three coolers. After reviewing many coolers throughout the year, the line blurs and it is really hard to pick, since they are all quite so good. None of them are bad, and it often comes down to price or maybe a certain color scheme that gets my attention."

The master cooler itself, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro series

Subject: Cases and Cooling | November 16, 2016 - 04:21 PM |
Tagged: cooler master, MasterLiquid Pro 240, MasterLiquid Pro 280, AIO

As the somewhat repetitive name suggests, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro series are all in one watercoolers for your CPU.  The MasterLiquid Pro 240 is a one inch thick 240mm rad with a pair of 120mm MasterFan Pro Air Balance fans,  the 280 model is also one inch thick but uses a pair of 140mm MasterFan Pro 140 Air Pressure fans to push air through the tighter fins.  The Tech Report tested these coolers out and were pleased with the performance of both coolers, giving higher marks to the Pro 280 for providing both more effective cooling and lower noise levels when under load.  Check out their full review here.

"Cooler Master's MasterLiquid Pro 240 and MasterLiquid Pro 280 CPU coolers bring fresh thinking to nearly every part of the closed-loop liquid cooler. We put them on the bench to see if those new ideas translate into chillier CPUs."

Cooler Master's MasterAir Pro 3 and 4 arrive on the scene

Tagged: cooler master, masterair 3, masterair 4

Cooler Master has been expanding their Master series to encompass cooling and enclosures, today with a pair of new lower cost heatsinks.  The MasterAir Pro 3 is a $40, 92mm mini-tower while the $45 Pro 4 is a 120mm design, both of which use the X mount style of the previous Hyper 212 Evo.  The Tech Report tested them on an i5-6600K and found both coolers to be somewhat more efficient at moving heat and significantly quieter than the stock Intel cooler.  You won't break records but if you are looking for an inexpensive cooling solution and don't mind the mounting mechanism you should check out the full review.

"Cooler Master's MasterAir Pro 3 and MasterAir Pro 4 CPU coolers represent the latest refinements in a long line of tower-style air heatsinks from the company. We strapped them onto Intel's unlocked Core i5-6600K CPU to see how they perform."
