The V-Series of CPU coolers from Cooler Master were very popular. As you know last year they released the V8 and larger V10 coolers. Now they have the V6 cooler. The V6 is a tower cooler than features fans on each side. These fans have a tool-free design so they just snap onto the cooler for easy installation and disassembly. There will be 2 versions of the V6, the normal V6 and the V6 GT. The difference is the GT will be nickel plated and sell for $69 whereas the V6 will sell for $49.
On the notebook cooling side of things we were shown the Storm SF19 notebook cooler. This cooler has 2 140mm fans, fits gaming notebooks up to 19-inches, has fan speed control, a 4-port USB hub, and multi-colors LED’s around the cooler that make for a really cool effect. The cooling pad itself is made out of steel, mesh and ABS. It will be available around the end of Q1 for $69.99.
Two other notebook coolers that were being shown off were the NotePad ErgoStand and the NotePal U1/U2. First let’s start with the ErgoStand, it fits anything from a netbook to a large widescreen laptop. What’s cool about it is that it has 5 adjustable height settings and the holders on the bottom move from side to side to better fit your laptop. Cooling your laptop is a 140mm fan. The NotePal U1 and U2 are slim light weight notebook coolers that are made of aluminum and rubber. The U1 is fan less and will fit laptops from 12-14-inches. The U2 comes with 2 80mm fans and can fit laptops up to 17-inches. What’s cool about the U2 is that fans can be moved pretty much anywhere on it. The latch right on to the bottom of the stand.
Case fans are something that many people overlook but can make a big difference in cooling and better improve airflow all throughout a case. Cooler Master showed us their new Excalibur cooling fans. These fans use a barometric ball bearing that provides a longer life span, while remaining very quiet. The sword shaped fins generate very high air pressure and the blades are removable for easy cleaning. Also the sides of the fan enclosure have a honeycomb design that at low speeds work as a secondary intake and at high speeds help reduce noise.
