Cooler Master MasterLiquid Maker 240 CPU Cooler Teased

Ahead of its launch, Cooler Master teased its upcoming high-end liquid CPU cooler, the MasterLiquid Maker 240. This cooler occupies the gray-area between closed-loop AIO coolers, and larger DIY kits that come in a knocked-down form, or which you buy piecemeal for the best combination. Some assembly is still required, but the kit is purpose-built for cooling one CPU out of the box. It comes with standard G 1/4 fittings, so you can expand it with a VGA block, or upgrade it with a bigger radiator later down the line.

The MasterLiquid Maker 240 features a CPU water-block, a 200 ml cylindrical reservoir+pump combo, a 240 mm x 120 mm copper radiator, two MasterFan Pro RGB 120 mm fans, coolant, and clear tubing. The cooler is purported to offer better performance than 240 mm AIO CLCs, and is yet expected to sell at a sub-$200 price-point.

Cooler Master Launches New 120, 140 mm RGB Fans, C10L Fan Controller

Cooler Master has quietly added to their product pages three new 120 mm Fan models, and two additional renditions of the same fans in 140 mm size. The new 120 mm fan models all belong to the MasterFan Pro product line, but are available with three different design philosophies according to users' particular needs: there's an AirFlow model, an AirPressure one, and a Air Balanced one. The names are pretty explicit as to the specific use cases easch fan has been designed for. All of these fan models come equipped with a Red, Blue, or RGB toggle built-in, so users get some measure of choice without acquiring the new C10L fan controller the company has also launched. There's also support for ASUS' Aura Sync, MSI's Mystic Light, ASRock's RGB, and Gigabyte's RGB Fusion software suites on select motherboards.

Cooler Master Reveals Their Vibrant RGB Hard Gaming Mousepad

Cooler Master launched the product page for their upcoming RGB Hard Gaming Mousepad, which is aimed at pro-level gamers. The mousepad's textured, low-friction hard surface was designed to work flawlessly with both optical and laser mice sensors. It also has five large rubber pads on the bottom, which help prevent the mousepad from slipping during intense gaming sessions. Cooler Master opted to use a braided cable for added durability.

The RGB Hard Gaming Mousepad comes with RGB lighting on the sides and on the Cooler Master logo as well. Users can choose from a palette of 16.7 million colors and nine different presets and effects to combine the mousepad's lighting with their other RGB peripherals. The touch sensitive button allows them to cycle through the LED backlight colors and modes.

Cooler Master Reveals Two New RGB CPU Coolers: The MasterAir MA410P, MA610P

Cooler Master has revealed two new tower coolers for their already extensive line-up, in the form of the MasterAir MA410P and MA610P. As the product names imply, the 410P is a slightly lower tier version of the 610P; however, both models share the same design philosophy with what Cooler Master is calling CDC (Continuous Direct Contact) 2.0 technology, which increases heatsink surface area by 45% compared to the first iteration of the technology.

The MasterAir MA410P is being hailed as the successor to the company's successful MasterAir Pro 4 CPU cooler, with four direct-contact copper heatpipes drawing heat from your CPU and through the fin array. A second fan can be added for a push-pull configuration, and a handy RGB controller ensures you'll be able to make it look exactly the way you want.

Cooler Master's ML120L and ML240L RGB CPU Coolers Sync Lighting To Motherboard

Cooler Master has released the new MasterLiquid ML120L and ML240L RGB all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, which sound similar to the existing MasterLiquid 120 and 240 AIO coolers, but differ in having RGB lighting which appears to be the new norm for flagship CPU coolers in 2017. The new coolers come equipped with pre-programmed RGB lighting effects on both the pump and fan(s), and this can also be monitored via the included controller. In addition, Cooler Master provides an RGB cable splitter to help integrate the lighting with compatible LED control software from motherboard makers including ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock's RGB LED Utility. Both the ML120L and the ML240L RGB are compatible with the newer AMD AM4 socket and Intel LGA2066 socket in addition to mainstream sockets from both CPU manufacturers. Notably however, support for AMD's Threadripper platform is missing. Both AIOs use a dual-chamber pump, sleeved FEP tubing, and MF120R air balance fans that claim to have silence and performance optimization in mind. The ML120L and the ML240L RGB coolers are currently available on Newegg via a third-party seller for $94.99 and $114.99 respectively. Click on the story for more specs.

Cooler Master Introduces MasterWatt PSU Series

Cooler Master, celebrating its 25th anniversary, today announces an expansion to their 80 PLUS Bronze certified line, MasterWatt. Cooler Master created the MasterWatt line for people seeking premium features in a Bronze efficiency power supply. This new line of power supplies offers an improved modular design, enhanced cables, and an innovative semi-fanless system. Inside, a dual forward / DC-to-DC circuit design ensures stable +12V output even in cross loading conditions. MasterWatt is the well-rounded successor to the classic GM series power supply line, widely sold around the world.

Collective feedback incorporated from around the world led to the development of specific features within the MasterWatt series. Cooler Master revised all the cables to accommodate larger cases and the trend of better cable management, resulting in cables that are 14% longer than previous generations. The MasterWatt series use more conductive PCIe cables that are 16AWG for less resistance, thus increasing efficiency of power delivery to graphics cards.

Cooler Master MasterBox MB600L, Liquid Cooling on a Budget

Unlike yesteryear when computer cases were limited to beige, or off-beige, for the adventurous, buyers today have a plethora of choices. The Cooler Master MasterBox MB600L, which is available with a choice of three different side trim colors (red, blue or gunmetal), as well as an optional optical disc drive (ODD) bay, reflects this greater attention to style. In addition to a neutral all-black background, the MB600L features a brushed front panel, PSU cover, an edge to edge transparent, acrylic side panel and sufficient space for routing cables.

Equal attention was paid to the case's interior design. The MB600L supports ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, GPUs up to 16.14" (400mm), PSUs as long as 7.1" (180mm) and CPU coolers up to 6.3" (160mm) in height. Cooling options are equally plentiful. While there is only a single rear 120mm fan, the front can accommodate two 140mm fans, two 120mm fans (w. ODD) or three 120mm fans (w/o ODD). Radiators are limited to 280 mm, or 360mm if the ODD is not present. It is important to note that the maximum thickness, in the case of the latter, is 50mm without fans. All for the suggested retail price of $50 US, and you even get front and bottom dust filters. According to Cooler Master the case is available now, but none of the retailers I checked have listed it just yet.

Cooler Master to Release MasterCase H500P ATX Chassis on October 10th for $149

Cooler Master seems to be gearing up towards launch of their MasterCase H500P ATX Chassis on October 10th, according to a product listing on Newegg. The MasterCase H500P was first pictured during this year's Computex. It's being touted as the successor to Cooler Master's HAF (High AirFlow) cases, boasting of 2x 200 mm fans with RGB lighting as front intakes.

The MasterCase H500P has been stylized with a high quality, 3D-printed exoskeleton look, and features a built-in vertical installation slot for your 2-slot graphics card of choice (which could pose problems due to airflow restriction, though we should reserve judgement for now.)

Asetek Loses Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Cooler Master

Asetek, a company known for designing water-cooling solutions for PC hardware that it sometimes licenses to other manufacturers, has lost a patent infringement lawsuit it had levied against Cooler Master. The lawsuit, which looked to impede the sale of Cooler Master products Nepton 120XL, Nepton 240M and Seidoen 120 V v.2, stated that Cooler Master was infringing on Asetek's European EP 1 923 771 patent, which describes a water cooling mechanism. This Asetek patent, filed in November 2004 and finally approved in May 2015, is in itself based on Asetek's older, US-bound patents.

However, The Hague's court has accepted Cooler Master's argument that they too have a similar patent to Asetek's, through a so-called "utility model" that already exists in China, which describes (and patents really show their problems here) the "operation of a water pumping engine device with chamber". The The Hague judge also invalidated Asetek's patent lawsuit on the basis that there was not enough inventiveness to it. Asetek and Cooler Master's legal battles aren't anything new; in 2015, a US-based court ordered Cooler Master to pay Asetek $600,000 for patent infringement. This time, it's the other way around, even though it was still Asetek that started the legal battle: the company now has to pay Cooler Master for their legal expenses, which amount to around €113,000 (~$134,204)

Cooler Master Announces Support for AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Socket TR4

Cooler Master has announced support for AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Socket TR4 for its AIO liquid CPU coolers through the usage of a mounting kit (RL-TR4B-MLLS-R1). The list of compatible coolers includes the MasterLiquid 240 and 120, MasterLiquid 240L RGB, MasterLiquid 120L RGB, Lite 240 and Lite 120.

AMD's latest HEDT CPUs offers up to 16 cores and 32 threads which reaches up to 180 watt TDP with the flagship 1950X. Cooler master says AMD's Threadripper CPUs will require top notch cooling, and that Cooler Master's dual chamber cooling presents itself as a perfect option made possible through "the unique cooling process which isolates the heated coolant from the cooled to maximize the results of the cooling of the processor."

AMD Publishes List of Threadripper Compatible Coolers

AMD has published a list of coolers that are officially compatible with their upcoming Threadripper CPUs. It's no surprise there needs to be a compatibility list - the new CPUs top out at 16-core, 32-thread monsters which have never before graced the HEDT space, with an accompanying large CPU die size and heatsink. The socket being an entirely new affair, a new retention kit must also be made available by cooler manufacturers.

AMD itself will be offering an Asetek retention kit for AIO cooling solutions on their Threadripper retail packaging, which should make most Asetek-built AIOs to be compatible with the TR4 socket. These coolers are automatically added to the list. However, there may be some other coolers that are compatible with the newest socket that are not listed on AMD's site as of yet. For those cases, AMD reminds us all that we should check with our cooling solution manufacturer whether an adapter is available or not, and whether our current cooling solution is sufficient for the task at hand. Other coolers are now receiving mid-production updates after a certain date to include the compatible mounting hardware. Check the source link for the AMD compatibility page, and the below image for the current state of affairs.

AMD Begins Offering Wraith Max Cooler Through Retail Channels - $59

AMD has announced full and immediate retail availability of their Wraith Max cooler through retail channels. The 140 W TDP Wraith Max cooler was previously only available through a bundle with AMD's top of the line Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X. However, through popular demand, AMD have decided to make that cooler available solo. Ease of installation through AMD's Spring-Screw mechanism, jolly good looks, LED lighting, relatively silent performance (38 dBa) and respectable performance seem to have been enough to convince AMD users.

The Wraith Max cooler is compatible with AMD AM4, AM3+, and FM2 motherboards. The RGB ring's color can be customized through a myriad of RGB control apps from various manufacturers, such as Asus' Aura Sync, Gigabyte's RGB Fusion, MSI's Mystic Light, Biostar's Vivid LED DJ, and ASRock's RGB LED tools. AMD also offers the AMD Wraith Max RGB lighting control software (powered by Cooler Master) as a free download. The Wraith Max comes with both a USB header cable and an RGB LED header to control the lighting feature. A copper base plate and heatpipes, along with pre-applied thermal paste and a 92mm Cooler Master fan. The down-blowing fan also provides an extra bit of cooling for the socket area and VRMs. Perhaps the $59 price-tag will turn some prospective buyers off, but still, this remains the best stock cooler option in the market, and for someone who wants to keep an AMD cooling identity, is the best available option.

Cooler Master Showcases Portfolio of Mice and Keyboard Solutions at Computex

Cooler Master took to the stage on Computex 2017 showcasing its solutions for every gamer's needs, from the RGB-crazed one to the serious, twitch-shooter.

On to keyboards first, we have the Cooler Master Masterkeys PRO L RGB, which manages to fit both Cherry MX switches and a full RGB solution that can radiate 16.7 million colors. There's also on-the-fly macros and profile support, with the Fn key getting a whole lot of love. All in a sleek, minimalistic design, if you ignore the screaming LEDs. The Masterkeys PRO S is essentially the same, but lacking the number pad. The Masterkeys S, on the other hand, eschews the RGB lighting, lacks profile support and on-the-fly switching, and also ditches the number pad. The minimalistic design is somewhat destroyed by the bright, screaming, angry red WASD keys, but there's no denying you'll be hard-pressed to confuse them with other, non life-saving movement keys.
