As always, Cooler Master had a wide array of products on display that covered all its product stack from cases to cooling to peripherals. The first items we looked at were the CM Storm Quickfire series of keyboards that have evolved along the way with different looks and switch configurations. One new design features blank tops on the keys for that stealth look. If you forget how the keys are laid out you can always look to the side of the keys facing the user. A new robust Aluminum series of products was highlighted that is put together for the gamer. These items, which include a mouse, keyboard and headset, are put together so that you can customize them for your clan or team.
The cooling solutions on display included a new version of the Hyper 212 with improved fans and a new take on the V8 called the V8 GTS. The main difference here is the use of a large Vapor Chamber as the base of the heat sink to better manage the thermal load. Another new entry into the product stack is the Eisberg line of liquid cooling solutions. Cooler Master acquired the line just this past year and have made this line available as a viable entry into the all-in-one LCS market. Available with a 120mm or 240mm design, this solution also has the ability to expand out to a full-on LCS by changing the tubing fittings and radiator. The pump head uses standard G1/4 threads, has a window to monitor coolant level, and a fill port that could be equipped with some of the latest LED-equipped G1/4 thread plugs.
Not one to disappoint, Cooler Master had a slew of custom creations stashed throughout the room based on the company's latest case designs. Each one a work of art, they have to be seen in person to be truly admired.
