Gaming cases are becoming more and more powerful at lower and lower prices. But it can be difficult to find a cheap case that supports larger video cards. The Cooler Master Elite 430 Black that we have the opportunity to review today does support larger video cards, is painted black inside and out, and has a multitude of other features. Read on to see what all this case has in store.
When we first got a glimpse of the V series CPU coolers from Cooler Master we were very impressed. We first got a chance to check out the V8 cooler, then came the V10 cooler and today we have the brand new V6 GT cooler. Once again like the other coolers in the V series it has the engine inspired look and a very unique design. Cooler Master says the V6 GT is the most efficient cooler in the V series thanks to the double-V heatpipes, inclined heatsink array, universal steel pressure mounting and twin DynaLoop dynamic bearing fans. Let’s take a look at the V6 GT and see if it is a real performer.
Cooling, power, and chassis profferors Cooler Master just launched a new line of high-end power supply, the Silent Pro Gold series. This series is 80PLUS Gold certified and is backed by a five year warranty. It’s a hybrid modular unit, meaning that it has some cables built-in while others are modular. This is among the first 80PLUS Gold-certified units ThinkComputers has seen. We recently reviewed the first 80PLUS Gold-certified PSU we’d seen, the Sparkle Gold Class 1250W. 80PLUS Gold means that the unit is at least 90% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load. ThinkComputers has the review.

Lately these days many people are purchasing a notebook cooler when they purchase a new laptop. This is because many laptops still get very hot and many notebook coolers also act as a stand for their laptop.

It also features a large 140mm fan, 4-port USB hub and a great ergonomic design. Let’s take a look…
A few years ago Cooler Master released their original CM 690 mid tower case. It was a huge success and Cooler Master has brought it back with the CM 690 II. They have updated the original CM 690 adding many new standard features we expect on cases that were not on the original case. Some of those features include an all black interior, 2.5-inch hard drive placements, and many cable management holes. Also this case can be found online for around $100! Let’s take a look at the CM 690 II Advanced and see if it’s the perfect new case for you!
One company with really a variety of products on display this year was Cooler Master. Up in their suite they had many different new products from both the main Cooler Master line and their Choiix line. They have new cases, power supplies, coolers, notebook coolers and even more! So let’s take a look at Cooler Master’s 2010 lineup.
Cooler Master is a company known more for their Cooling Products and Full Tower cases, but they do have a Mid Tower line of cases. We have the chance today to look at one of Cooler Master’s budget Mid Tower cases, the Elite 310. A front bezel with a piano black finish has a trim available in three different colors: orange, blue and silver. Read on further to check out the other features of this case.
After doing a lot of experimenting with coolers utilizing this technology, I have found that it does work rather than just looking good on paper. Today’s cooler will be the 11th I have tested using this, and I have found that just as a copper-based cooler, it is what the manufacturer does with the remainder of the cooler that determines how well it cools. Today I will be looking at the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler. It is a 4-heatpipe 120mm tower cooler utilizing Direct contact heatpipes. It has a brand new style of mounting hardware, one base/retainer fits all three of Intel’s mounting configurations. Will the Hyper 212 Plus keep my new LGA 1156 i7 cool? Read on to see!
If you are anything like me, you see a great number of notebooks, netbooks and tablet computers come through your office. If I kept an OEM adapter around for every laptop I had ever serviced, I would have a pirate chest full of tangled booty. Thankfully we have manufacturers who provide us with a simpler solution: the Universal Adapter. Some offerings are cheap and flimsy, while others are quality hardware that make themselves invaluable tools. Today we take a look at the Cooler Master SNA95 Slim Notebook Adapter to see which of these categories it falls into.
