Let's face it, the world of heatpipe coolers is large, big and sure... very saturated. We tested a lot of these coolers recently and aah well, here's one more. Back in march at CeBIT I was talking with a representative of Cooler Master where they showed me a new concept design cooler which I was not yet allowed to talk about. That cooler is being introduced and released today.
Now then, heatpipe coolers are available in all sorts, sizes and designs but the low-budget market really isn't addressed properly is it? As such, Cooler Master designed the Hyper TX3 CPU cooler. Though the cooler will not be high-end performance wise, it can still manage the latest Core 2 Duo and Quad processors really well, and sure, overclocked as well. This new TX3 also supports the upcoming Core i5 processors from Intel based on Socket LGA 1156. Small and immediate side note, Nehalem (Core i7 Socket LGA 1366) is not supported.
In fact, this cooler can handle all Intel Sockets LGA 775/1156 and AMD Sockets 754/939/940/AM2/AM3 based processors. And despite that flexibility, mounting this CPU cooler will be a breeze as well, no need to remove the motherboard. You just apply the right configuration on the retention brackets and secure the cooler, helped by a push-pin design. But we'll show you that of course.
There's more, the cooling block now uses the popular Direct Contact heat-pipe design. It saves costs in copper, yet as OCZ has proved with the original Vendetta cooler, they cool just really really well. Typically this would not be a massively interesting release of course, however... with a sales price of only 14.95 EUR/USD let's face it... the dynamic certainly changes for the better.
So while the cooler itself is a little regular, it's features and performance are quite extensive for the money. Let's head on over to the next page please, where we'll start up the review. But have a peek first.
Cooler Master just released within the CM STORM line of products the Sentinel ZERO-G, an updated version of the last generation product, that TBH I still use. The Sentinel ZERO-G offers everything its older brother already has, but is tweaked, optimized and comes with a few surprises. We again spot the cute little OLED screen, adjustable weight system, superduper link braided 2M chord, and upgrade to 128kb of memory and yeah, it is just a really nice upgrade to what was previously launched.

CoolerMaster Aquagate MAX review CPU liquid cooling
A test on the CoolerMaster Aquagate MAX. This system is designed to be used inside your computer case for a completely self-contained system. If you are looking for a liquid cooling system to use for your performance computer the Cooler Master Aquagate Max may be just what you need. Dual 1200mm radiator, excellent looking reservoir and 400 liter/h pump, nice thick tubing and a very glossy water-block. A very interesting fact is .. it's not very expensive.
CoolerMaster Cosmos S review
CoolerMaster today introduced a new PC case/chassis updated from their Cosmos line of products. This unit is based on a standard Cosmos 1000 with some attention-grabbing new modifications targeted at the high-end and enthusiast consumer with a diminutive amount of money to spare. It's huge, it's profound, it's impressive, it's striking and it's called the Cosmos S; with the S for Sport.
