Cooler Master Releases V8 GTS CPU Cooler

Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer today unleashes one of the most powerful Air CPU Coolers on the planet, the V8 GTS. It's powered by the very same Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC) Technology that keeps high-end graphics cards cool while containing the sheer raw force of a maelstrom within its huge, powerful fans.

Seemingly channeling the power of the muscle cars that inspired its design and the wind deities that grant them passage, V8 GTS is without equal. It dissipates large amounts of heat through its marriage of HVC and an optimized fin tower design. V8 GTS is built with triple tower heatsinks and eight high performance heat pipes all to channel the massive amount of heat being pulled away from the processor by the vapor chamber. Despite its menacing high performance engine outlook and large stature, V8 GTS still leaves plenty of space for memory slots.

Cooler Master Intros Two New Silent Pro Gold PSUs For The European Market

Available until recently only in the APAC markets (Asia-Pacific region), the 450 W and 550 W version of the Silent Pro Gold series can now be purchased in most EU markets as well. The European consumers tend to prefer lower output PSUs when compared to most other mature markets, especially the NA ones, so units like these two usually sell in better volumes here than elsewhere, fact which explains Cooler Master's decision to expand its European PSU offerings with two low(er) output models.

The two units discussed here don't bring anything particularly new to the table, in fact they harbor internal electronics that are well known and widely available, being sold by numerous other vendors already. The units are underpinned by FSP's well known Aurum platform, a group regulated design that is rather average in all regards except efficiency, being an 80 Plus Gold certified product. Cooler Master discarded FSP's multi-rail setup and opted for single rail designs with the Silent Pro Gold 450 W and 550 W, the two units also make exclusive use of Japanese capacitors. MSRP for these new Silent Pro Gold PSUs is set at €60 for the 450 W version and €70 for its 550 W sibling.

Asetek Sues Cooler Master Over Multiple Patent Infringements

Asetek, which manufactures closed-loop liquid cooling solutions that are re-branded by several companies, filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Cooler Master alleging infringement of multiple patents held by Asetek. Cooler Master's recently launched Seidon line of closed-loop liquid CPU coolers are points of contention for Asetek, as it claims the products infringe upon patent numbers 8,240,362 and 8,245,764, held by the company.

Seidon 120M and 240M may have been launched late January 2013, but had been pictured much earlier, in September. Ahead of its launch, Asetek claims it had contacted Cooler Master with a cease-and-desist order, but it claims the latter didn't respond satisfactorily, going ahead with the launch. The case (Civil Action No. 3:13-cv-00457-JSC) will now be heard by a US Court. Cooler Master's defense could stress on the point the essential design of a CPU liquid cooler hasn't changed for decades. Other liquid cooling makers, which aren't particularly as big as Asetek (which sells liquid cooling solutions to even the server and defense industries), will be closely following the case.

Cooler Master TPC 612 and V8 GTS CPU Coolers, and JetFlo 120 Fans Pictured

Cooler Master showed off a trio of air-cooling solutions at CeBIT, which includes the TPC 612 and V8 GTS CPU coolers, and JetFlo 120 case fans. The TPC 612 is a compacted version of the TPC 812. It retains the design concept of its older sibling, that of a heatpipe-fed aluminum fin stack that also uses a vapor-chamber tube for more efficient heat transfer; while using just four heat pipes, and a more compact vapor-chamber tube. Measuring 145 x 97 x 161.6 mm (WxDxH, including the fan), it weighs about 640 g. It uses a single 120 mm PWM fan that spins in the range of 600 to 2,000 RPM, pushing 24.9 to an impressive 82.9 CFM of air. The TPC 612 is compatible with all modern CPU socket types.

Moving on, the V8 GTS is Cooler Master's latest monstrosity, one that is designed to take on pre-assembled closed-loop liquid CPU coolers. It uses a triple independent aluminum fin stack design, which is ventilated by a pair of 140 mm fans. An unknown (we're guessing six) number of 6 mm-thick nickel plated copper heat pipes convey heat from the base through the three fin stacks. Measuring a whopping 154 x 149 x 160 mm, it weighs 1,140 g. Each of its two 140 mm fans uses a 4-pin PWM connection, spins at 600 to 1,600 RPM, pushing 28 to 82 CFM of air. Lastly, Cooler Master showed off its JetFlo 120, a neat little 120 mm spinner featuring PWM, 800 to 2,000 RPM speed range, and up to 85 CFM air-flow.

Cooler Master Unveils CM Storm Sirius S 5.1-channel Gaming Headset

Cooler Master's gaming hardware brand CM Storm announced the Sirius S 5.1-channel gaming headset, a variant of the Sirius, which dates back to June 2011. While the original Sirius ships with a 5.1-channel USB sound card, and is priced around 120€, the new Sirius S maintains the headset's every component, except the USB sound card is tossed out for a simpler volume control pod, and 3.5 mm jacks (three lines-out and one mic-in), so you could take advantage of your own sound card. It's also likely that since sound cards with non-standard DSPs are highly prone to driver-related issues, and need constant maintenance from the manufacturers' side, Cooler Master is finding a smarter way out. The Sirius S is expected to be significantly cheaper than the original, when it reaches stores some time in February.
