As the fall season is hitting its peek, companies are still looking to show off the pre-holiday goodies. There is just so much going on with all the great games to be released in the next few weeks and AMD going into the 11th hour for Bulldozer to debut. To help you scratch the itch to buy great new gear, Cooler Master announced today the forthcoming CM Hyper 212 EVO, and CM Storm Trooper case.
The Hyper 212 EVO is a product update to the popular Hyper 212 CPU cooler. Going with a single continuous set of fins instead of the old two tower design, will provide more air flow control and larger surface area to dissipate heat, without increasing its size. Cooler Master also includes a PWM fans with anti-vibration pads and updated blade design. The Hyper 212 EVO also has Continuous Direct Contact (CDC) which replaces the copper contact plate with direct contact to the heat pipes while maintaining a flat surface. The cherry on top is the Hyper 212 EVO having an MSRP of $34.99 for this universal CPU cooling solution.
Cooler Master did not stop at updating a great cooler. They also announced the CM Storm Trooper, a new case for the Storm lineup. This case is a completely new design for Cooler Master and takes no noticable design cues from other Cooler Master cases.
At the top you will find a 200mm fan slot (fan included) with a removable dust filter. The front panel is crafted into the carry handle and includes, audio, eSATA, Two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, fan controller, power, and reset button. The top front panel hides a 2.5″ external X-dock. The internals of of the case has your now standard cable management features and 8 fan slots; however, it is one of the very few cases with space for an XL-ATX motherboard. You will also notice the HDD are two removable 4 in 3 (4 HDDs in three 5.25″ slots) cages that come out of the front. A design that reminds me the Antec 900, but looks to be a much better and more up to date system.
The CM Storm Trooper seems to hit every check box feature and then some. The CM Storm Trooper add everything you could want from a case with an MSRP of $189.99 and a carry handle.
