With COMPUTEX fresh behind our thoughts, we take a quick look at Cooler Master products that were on showcase on the floor.
Walking into the booth, we were greeted by several different chassis from the brand. One of them was the PUBG edition of the MasterCase H500P. It features yellow accents throughout the build along with a PUBG decal that can be found on the bottom of the chassis.
As for normal offerings, CM showed off the MasterBox 530P, that comes with not one, not two, but three tempered glass on the chassis. This chassis is perfect for the ones who love to see their components working, or the users that love to dress up their build with colourful RGB components. The number of available RGB components and options available to the market right now is growing larger and larger by day. The chassis comes bundled along with three RGB fans as well, so there is no need for you hunt around for one.
On the more premium side of things, the COSMOS C700M makes an appearance on the show floor and it is padded with features out the brim. Most of the parts that can be removed or opened on the chassis is easily accessible with just a touch. For example, the front side of the chassis can be opened to allow for more airflow can be opened by reaching under the chassis. The side and top panels can also be opened with a similar manner as well. Once turned on, the trims of the chassis can be customised to glow and breathe just like a LED strip. You can also rotate the build and set it however you like.
Aside from chassis, CM is also known for their peripherals as well, especially their keyboards. One of them being the CK550 keyboard. The CK550 is available in either red, brown or blue switches. The keyboard plate is made up of a single piece of curved aluminium that sports a gunmetal colour scheme, along with per-key RGB illumination under the keys. Another keyboard that was shown is the MK850, a keyboard that allows analog movement via Aimpad input. This allows you to precisely control your movement, depending on how you hold on the keys. For example if you wish to do a soft left turn when you are driving in game, lightly touch on the button and your car will move slightly to the left. Currently, it will only come with Cherry Red switches.
As for PSU, the new XG Gold 750 was displayed on the showfloor. It is a PSU fully developed, created and manufactured by Cooler Master themselves. For the 750 version, it is 80 Plus Gold certified, and comes with a 135mm FDB Fan. Following the 2018 trend, you can also spot RGB lighting on the PSU with Aura Sync compatibility. The cables are also fully modular as well.
According to a CM representative, the CK550 will arrive in Malaysia by July and will cost around RM 250, and the MK850 keyboard with Aimpad technology will be available for purchase come September this year, with no definite pricing. The MasterBox 530P should hit local markets in August, and is expected to retail at RM 400. We will definitely post more info whenever we get them.
