Cooler Master has announced a slew of new products for our computers at CES 2018 today, so time to dive in. First up are the new CPU coolers the company announced, including various liquid coolers and new air coolers. The standout liquid cooler is the MasterLiquid ML2400 SMART that features addressable RGB lighting that will work with ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and Asrock motherboards. What makes it SMART is its ability to monitor temperature and change the RGB lighting accordingly. The MasterAir MA410M is an air cooler that also features this SMART capability. If you do not need temperature to influence the lighting, the MasterLiquid ML240R, ML120R, Master Fan MF120M and MF122R-Addressable RGB all lack that feature.

On the air-cooling side, the company also revealed its MasterAir G100M that uses custom Heat Column technology. This technology increases direct surface contact, improving heat transfer and cooling performance. The block of the Heat Column is 46.3 mm and allows the low-profile cooler to reach a TDP of 130 W. It does sport an RGB ring and fan.

To power all of the coolers, the MasterWatt V and MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 power supplies have been announced. The MasterWatt V series are all 80 Plus Gold rated and has 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W models. They also feature 16AWG PCIe cables and EPS connectors that are thicker and more heat resistance, improving efficiency, and the maximum operating temperature has been upped to 50 ºC for extreme conditions. The 135 mm FDB fan will keep the system cool while you push your system, and the 10-year warranty will protect the PSUs.

The MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 is a mouthful, but it is also 80 Plus Titanium, with the 1200 W and 1500 W models offer 94% efficiency. The 3D circuit design improves airflow though, to keep the temperatures low. With Cooler Master Connect v2.0, users will be able to monitor the PSU's performance in real time, and even store the data in the cloud.

Also on the software front, Cooler Master announced its new software division, MasterPlus+. It is working on an application to allow users to manage and monitor their PCs and devices that can connect to it. The first of the features it is getting though is lighting, and it will allow users to sync lights between the PC components, peripherals, the monitor, and even wall lighting.

Lastly, Cooler Master announced the M800 series of gaming peripherals, which covers the MK850 and MK851 keyboards, MM830 mouse, MP860 RGB mousepad, and MH850 headset. The MK851 features Aimpad technology, giving analog control to eight keys, including WASD, for more precise control than traditional on/off keyboard switches. The MK851 will only come with Cherry MX Red switches, while the MK850 offers Cherry MX Blue and Brown switches, but lacks Aimpad support. The MM830 mouse has four low-profile buttons forming a D-pad under your thumb, a 96x94 OLED screen for customization, and its Pixart 3360 sensor can reach up to 24,000 DPI. The MP860 RGB mousepad has two sides, with one being hard for precision and speedy movements and the other softer, for daily tasks. The MH850 headset has virtual 7.1 audio and uses FocusFX technology to isolate mid and high tones, to pick out subtle sounds during competitive play. Without FocusFX, the bass is elevated. The MH850 has cloth and leather ear pads for comfort, on-cup controls, detachable 3.5 mm and USB-C cables, a removable boom mic, and a flood flat design for storage.

The M800 series of peripherals are set to launch in Q2 and Q3.
