On the second day of CeBIT, we visited Cooler Master's booth which showcased some of their latest releases, including a new series of PSUs and several HD enclosures. We took some pictures of their latest products, some of which are already available on the market and some of which are to be released by the end of this month.
The Cooler Master RC-632 was one of the first chassis that caught our eye, with its sleek design and sliding mechanism on the front panel...
Another new release was the Wave Master II, an upgrade of Cooler Master's best known chassis. The case design follows the same smooth, linear trend which Cooler Master is known for. The removable front face bezel is available to suit all cases of the end user needs, making it unique, as it was demonstrated to us at Cooler Master's booth.
The CM Media 250 with a live display demo in Cooler Master's booth. Cooler Master showcased several of their stand alone devices, such as the CM Media 250, which among other things, follows the same environmental friendly strategy as most of the CM products.
The EMI shielded case is more than most end user require, including a Micro ATX M/B and PSU and two drive bays.
Recently, CM held a contest for the best looking CM chassis user modded case. The case seen in the above picture, is a definite eye catcher, the Praetorian box, with sword 'n all...
One of CM's latest releases was the iGreen Power 430W/500W/600W. As advertised, the iGreen Power is the first power supply which achieves 85% efficiency through Double Forward Switching Circuit Technology. The iGreen is environment friendly, while it has met the Energy Star and Blue Angel requirements. iGreen Power supports the newest Intel standard ATX 12V V2.2 and the newest SSI standard EPS 12V V2.91 (iGreen Power 500W/600W only). A 120mm dual ball bearing fan, further improves the heat exhaust providing greater stability.
Another highlight of the CeBIT fair at CM's booth was the AQUAGATE Viva, the first VGA Liquid Cooling System converted for CPU application. The universal retention plate, supports both nVIDIA and ATI VGA cards as well as the universal fastener for K8/P4/LGA775 CPUs. The AQUAGATE Viva comes with 2 water blocks to support SLI and CrossFire. Liquid Cooling at its best.
Stylish and cool are just a couple of superlatives that can be used to describe the XCraft enclosure series from CM. As seen in the above picture, all the latest models were showcased, with several having a fan system included. The XCraft 350, the external hard drive enclosure is compatible with all OS, Windows and Mac alike. The 350 can hold 3.5-inch IDE and SATA hard drives, up to 500GB in capacity. The interface supports USB 2.0 2-port hub, IEEE1394a and eSATA.
An external HD enclosure for the RAPTOR HDD was also showcased...
Of course, CPU cooling solutions could not be absent from CM's booth. The RR-CCH-ANUI-GP (LGA 775 and K8) is a CPU cooler with 6 copper heatpipes and 2 120mm fans on top, offering great heat dissipation but at a slightly increased noise level.
Last but not least, the iGreen Cooler (LGA 775 and K8) was also showcased. The iGreen Cooler offers tool-less installation, without the need to remove the M/B, and silent functioning with the 90mm fan positioned on top of the heatsink.
And with that, we left Cooler Master's booth. We expect most of the products to be available by the end of this or the next month, with some already on the market.
