- CM Storm & Cooler Master
Cooler Master has 3 great product lines. They have their main Cooler Master line, which we know for awesome cases and CPU coolers. Their Storm gaming line has great cases and gaming peripherals. Finally their Choiix line has great mobile products that really come in handy. This year at CES they showed up some great new products from each line, let’s take a look…
The CM Storm line is seeing its first gaming headset the Sirus. This 5.1 headset just looks awesome and definitely has gamers in mind. First it comes with 2 different sets of ear cups, so you can choose which one is more comfortable for you. The control unit is very stylish and easy to use. The connector is made so you can connect it to your Xbox 360 or other game console.
Another new addition to the CM Storm line is the Spawn Gaming mouse. Engineered to execute precise in-game tactics, Spawn comes loaded with an ultra high-performance 3500 DPI sensor that includes on-the-fly adjustment, an ultra-step wheel encoder – providing extremely accurate scrolling, and Japanese-made Omron micro-switches that are meant to endure up to five million clicks. The Spawn also has a nice rubberized grip, 7 fully programmable buttons, and ultra swift teflon feet.
The other new CM Storm product is the Enforcer mid tower case. This all black case features a front door that when opened reveals 4 5.25-inch drive bays. At the top you have 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and audio ports. Inside you will find room for 6 3.5-inch hard drives and 2 2.5-inch hard drives.
The main Cooler Master brand did not have that many cases to show us, but they do have 3 new budget cases, the Elite 343 ($39 avail. Q1), Elite 371 ($39 avail. Q1), and Elite 311 ($39 avail. Q2). $39 is a very aggressive price point, even for a budget case, each one of these cases is loaded with features too.
I’ve always liked Cooler Master’s NotePal notebook cooling line. Cooler Master is adding a few new coolers to the line. The first is the NotePal P2, which is a fold-able cooler meant for traveling. Next is the X-Slim, which is shaped like a large “X” and has a cooling fan in the center. The last notebook cooler is the NotePal Infinite EVO. It features an aluminum design, with an open center and fans that blow around the center, it also features a USB port.
