Cooler Master Announces the MasterCase 3 Pro Chassis

Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the MasterCase Pro 3. This is the newest installment of the MasterCase series. The goal here was to create a case that gives users the same level of customization as the MasterCase 5 but for Micro-ATX builds.

"Based on our community research, we found that Micro-ATX motherboards are becoming increasingly popular. People using Micro-ATX motherboards also want a smaller case much of the time. Therefore, we decided to make the MasterCase Pro 3 smaller than the MasterCase 5 series," said Mark, Product Marketing lead for cases. "Being part of our MasterCase series, the Pro 3 is also modular thanks to our FreeFormTM system, allowing users to customize, adjust, and upgrade their case the way they want. Moreover, despite being a mini-tower, this case is able to handle large components like long PSUs, tall CPU coolers and long graphics cards. Users can finally enjoy powerful PC rigs without having to use an ATX case."

Cooler Master Announces the MasterLiquid Maker 92 CPU Cooler

Cooler Master, a leader in design and manufacturing computer components and peripherals, today launched an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler that doesn't look like a liquid cooler. According to Cooler Master, it skirts the divide between liquid and air cooling by combining properties from both. Let's get one thing straight - it is an all-in-one (AIO) closed loop liquid cooler. Mostly. What Cooler Master has done is shrink it down by combining the radiator and pump into a single frame. This frame and two dual fans are attached to a swiveling mechanism that allows you to quickly swap between vertical or horizontal mounting configurations. This versatility gives this unusual cooler a number of unique functions for smaller PCs and air flow set ups.

"It has dimensions similar to an air cooler, but it packs a punch for its size that air coolers can't match. And it rotates. It's like if you somehow jacked up a mid-sized tower CPU cooler's performance and versatility without changing its size," said Dorrie Chen, Product Marketing Manager for Cooler Master's thermal team. Liquid and air CPU coolers are always fighting.

Master Case 4 and Master Case 6 by Cooler Master Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of the Master Case 4 and Master Case 6 by Cooler Master. Both cases are built on a slightly different design language than the Master Case 3, Master Case 5, and Master Case Maker 7, in that they lack the signature top-edge hexagonal element housing the front-panel. If you ignore that bit, the two cases to feature the same elegant cuts and creases from the rest of the lineup. The Master Case 4 is a micro-ATX tower, with room for full-fledged, liquid-cooled micro-ATX gaming PC setup, including room for a pair of 240 x 120 mm radiators. The Master Case 6, on the other hand, is a mid-tower with more of the same features. We don't believe the Master Case 4 and Master Case 6 will be in the same price-band as the rest of the Master Case series, but we'll have to wait and watch.

Gargantuan Master Case Maker 7 by Cooler Master Pictured

Cooler Master scaled its Master Case design both ways this Computex.

You can cram up to three independent liquid cooling loops into this one, with room for three 480 mm x 120 mm (or 420 mm x 140 mm) radiators, over a dozen 3.5-inch drives, and much more. The side panel features a classy tempered glass panel covering the top (motherboard tray) compartment, with a grill covering the bottom (drives + PSU) compartment, that doubles up as vent for one of your three big radiators. It's just as modular as the Master Case Maker 5, and you can use any of its readily available accessories (except body panels) with this case.

Cooler Master's Outdoorsy Master Case 5T Detailed

The next addition to Cooler Master's Master Case series features racy styling, and likes to go out to LANs, the Master Case 5T ("T" stands for "turbo"). For the most part, the 5T resembles the original Master Case 5, but differs with a new crimson+black finish. Crimson-red lines the border of the signature hexagon element on the front, and the interiors, including the motherboard tray, the drive cages, and the slot covers. The other, more visible change, of course is the top static handle, which lets you carry the case around to LANs. This handle doesn't come in the way of the top-panel's cooling features, including a vent for a triple-fan radiator underneath.

Cooler Master Micro-ATX Master Case 3 Detailed

AMD Unveils the Radeon Pro Duo Graphics Card

AMD unveiled its latest flagship graphics card, the Radeon Pro Duo. The card is designed for "creators who game, and gamers who create," as the tagline goes. It is a dual-GPU graphics card based on a pair of 28 nm "Fiji" chips, the same ones which drive the R9 Fury X and the R9 Nano. AMD is positioning this card in the gray-area between consumer graphics cards, and FirePro workstation products, as a new "workstation-class" product. Perhaps this allows the company to get away with things such as three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The Radeon Pro Duo features two "Fiji" GPUs in their maximum core configuration - 4,096 stream processors, 256 TMUs, and 64 ROPs, each; with 4 GB of HBM memory, each. The card hence packs a total of 8 GB HBM memory, and 16 TFLOP/s total single-precision floating-point performance. The card features a liquid-cooling solution designed by Cooler Master, with a thick 120 mm x 120 mm radiator that's similar to the one that ships with the R9 Fury X. The card's display output configuration is similar to the R9 Fury X, too, with three DisplayPort 1.2a and one HDMI 1.4a connectors. AMD is going ahead and claiming the title of "World's Fastest Graphics Card." The Radeon R9 Pro Duo is expected to be priced at US $1,499.

AMD "Fiji" Dual-GPU Graphics Card Delayed

Originally expected to unveil/launch some time in December-January, AMD's upcoming flagship dual-GPU graphics card based on its "Fiji" silicon could now be scheduled for a Q2-2016 (April-June) launch. In its E3 livecast, AMD CEO Lisa Su stated that the dual-GPU "Fiji" product could launch as early as Christmas 2015. We now know that it isn't happening.

Responding to a question by, AMD stated that it's pegging the launch of the dual-GPU "Fiji" card to commercial availability of HMDs (head-mounted displays), and a general sense of maturity in the VR ecosystem. AMD is now expecting HMDs to be well proliferated no sooner than Q2-2016, and is hence "adjusting the Fiji Gemini launch schedule to better align with the market," to "ensure the optimal VR experience." AMD did state that samples of the card have been shipped to some of its B2B partners for internal testing within Q4-2015, and their response have been "positive." Could this be AMD buying time to re-engineer a non-Cooler Master cooling solution?
