Cooler Master Releases Hyper 212X CPU Air Cooler

Cooler Master continues to expand its renowned Hyper 212 Series CPU coolers with the release of the Hyper 212X.

The last update the Hyper 212 series received was the Hyper 212 EVO in 2011. While it’s still a fantastic budget cooler, 5 years is a long time without an update.

Computex 2015: Cooler Master Brings Innovation in the MasterCase5

After years of being the standard when it comes to cases and coolers, Cooler Master fell into a slump lately after a series of bad product launches, lack of real innovation and an ever expanding catalog of “following the trend” products. Last year, when we met with Cooler Master at Computex, Cooler Master told us they were going to restructure and redefine their brand starting by simplifying the product lineup, improving customer service, and most important of all, introduce some new, innovative never before seen products rather than ones that simply “copycat” the competition.

CES 2015: Cooler Master Talks Restructuring Plans, 3D Vapor Chamber, CoolChip Partnership

2014 has been an unusually quiet year for Cooler Master. The computer component and peripheral giant who typically launches at least five to ten products every quarter hasn’t really made a whole lot of noise over the past year. As such, we were a bit curious to find out what happened to such a prominent force in the industry, so we took a quick trip to the Cooler Master CES suite to talk to Marketing Manager, Rajiv Kothari.

When we arrived at the Cooler Master suite this year, the suite was unusually clean, uncluttered, and relatively quiet. Here we met up with Rajiv, who spoke to us for a good hour about Cooler Master’s plans for the new year. As usual, [...]
