CoolerMaster Shows Off New Cooling Products at Computex

By , Benjamin Kraft - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

CoolerMaster has a few new products for your CPU.

We stopped by CoolerMaster at Computex to take a look at what's new. First up are two new water coolers, the Eisberg 120 and 240, which differ in their size of radiator and the addition of a second 120mm fan.

Both feature a copper base plate and are open loop systems, so user can choose the coolant. The fan(s) measure 120 x 120 x 25 mm (4.7 x 4.7 x 1 in) and have a speed of 1600 RPM. Supported sockets include: Intel LGA 775/1156/1155/1366/2011 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2. Look for these in early July.

 

In August, CoolerMaster will be launching an air cooler called the TPC 612. It will have a single 120 mm fan, but air flow and noise information weren't yet available. It features four 6mm heatpipes, a flat vapor chamber design, a nickel plated copper base, and aluminum alloy fins. The dimensions are 145 x 79 x 165 mm (5.7 x 3.11 x 6.5 in), and for the heatsink itself 120 x 120 x 25 mm (4.7 x 4.7 x 1 in)

 

Other upcoming products discussed, but not available for photography are the AL120 and 240, plus an upcoming flagship. The AL120/240 will be similar to the Eisberg, but will have a flatter water block. There will also be a low-cost version of the AL120 that's still unnamed, but targeted for budget users around $50.

Coming late July will be V8GT-VC-X, the upcoming flagship air cooler. It will have a square vapor chamber in the base of the cooler, made of nickel-plated copper, along with eight heatpipes. Expect dual 140 mm fans with LEDs with fins made of aluminum alloy.

    I hope that Toms' Hardware can roll out torture tests, err, benchmarks, to show if such products are worthy to be on the market.

    Darn, they need to put a low profile solution for HTPC's that is not a watercooler, lol.

    Come on CM! I'm waiting for a low profile GeminII! That thing is amazing, but too high for my HTPC, lol.

    Cheers!

    are all your cars and airplane custom made also?
    it's bad enough 99.95 % of the time it's user error, you want user error to come in contact with 500w-1200w?

    Meh another open loop all in one water cooling kit that probably performs no better (or worse than) than high-end air cooling. Thats ok I'll keep my custom water cooling loop.

    Budget-oriented at $50 huh? There might be something missed there...like the 20 thousand ppl who buy the evo 212+ a day at $30.

    Why use a box fan when you can "borrow" two old car radiators from the junk yard and find a large industrial fan?

    Sure, it's going to be loud and ugly, but who cares since the water's ambient temperature is going to be only around 1 C higher than the ambient room temperature.

    Apples and oranges. Custom computers are easilly affordable to anyone with a job, custom cars on other hand. Try again.

    Open loop is good idea, people can experiment with stuff...

    No point in these products when Intel are playing silly games with inferior CPU thermal interfaces probably to keep these cooling firms products selling.

    With a pump that big, if it doesn't beat the H100 these are worthless.

    Too many people hating on those trying to enter the water cooling market. That segment needs some love too. I'm pretty sure that no body built their first computer with all the right parts, and I don't believe for a second that changes when you enter the water cooling segment of PC building.

    Glad to see CM getting a, what looks to be, nice product out there for those going for that.

    I personally see no reason to OC anything to the degree that would require water cooling but to each their own! Heck, with the performance of the i5-2400, it seems like OC'ing is becoming something to do solely for the fun of it; man is it awesome to see those crazy OC's on youtube.

    i like Antec Kuhler 620. yes, it is premade, "Not custom", but it works very well for i5-2500K.

    Yet, a $30 hyper 212 EVO will outperform it!
