OCC’s visit to Cooler Master started with a quick look at the company’s newest addition to the heatsink market. The one that caught OCC’s eye was the V-6. This heatsink uses a v-shaped heat pipe arrangement and tilted fins to increase cooling efficiency. We also got to see a new fan that uses a unique design to increase airflow and reduce noise, which should be great for use as a chassis fan.
Cooler Master's power supply line-up was prominently displayed and featured power supplies from 650W and up.
If you want cases, we got cases, from an AMD specific build to the updated CM690 II. A new chassis that was showcased was the USP100. This case comes equipped with a 500 watt PSU and a wide opening in the motherboard tray will allow you to change high end heatsinks without removing the motherboard. There is also a ton of room behind the motherboard tray for cable management. An updated version of the Centurion series was there for the show but is not really targeted at the US market.
On display were a few laptop coolers for the mobile user. The first one we looked at was able to adjust the incline to provide an ergonomic benefit to the end user.
Also on hand were a host of products from Choiix. We looked at a flat speaker prototype for use with notebooks and netbooks. What looked really exciting was the Swapper, a 2.5 inch hard disk enclosure that is portable and can be popped right open to change drives.
