Cooler Master announced plans to release gaming PCs. The systems are offered both in conventional computer cases and in very unusual ones, which the manufacturer spoke about in more detail at CES 2023.
As one of the options, the company will offer a system codenamed Cooling X. It is scheduled to go on sale in the second quarter of 2023. The preliminary technical specifications of the PC indicate the flagship processor Ryzen 9 5950X based on the Zen 3 architecture and the graphics card Radeon RX 6800 XT. In addition, the novelty offers up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and M.2 solid state drives with a total capacity of up to 4 TB. The computer is powered by the Cooler Master V850 SFX Gold 850W power supply.
To dissipate heat from the processor and graphics card, Cooling X uses a liquid cooling system. The passive part of the latter, in turn, will replace the side panels of the case and will consist of massive radiators with 21 fins. In this configuration, the liquid from the radiator on the left side wall is pumped through the cooling circuits of the central processor and graphics card, routed to the right radiator panel, where it is cooled and returned again. The Cooling X case looks like the Cooler Master Cosmos case model. Like the latter, it is equipped with carrying handles, but differs from the Cosmos model in its more compact dimensions.
In the third quarter of this year, Cooler Master will launch several more computers, including AIOX NUC compact solutions based on 12th generation Intel Core and equipped with a proprietary cooling system.
The manufacturer will also release systems as part of computer cases that won the previous Cooler Master Case Mod competition. In its frame it was proposed to create the most unusual case design. The winners were the participants who proposed the Shark X and Sneaker X concepts. The first is in the shape of a shark robot, the second is in the shape of a giant sneaker. Both systems use Mini-ITX motherboards, compact SFX power supplies and maintenance-free liquid cooling systems.
According to Cooler Master, the Sneaker X fits a coolant with a 360 mm radiator. Inside the Shark X there is only enough space to install a 120mm radiator. And this case is equipped with an external Wi-Fi antenna built into the predatory fish’s dorsal fin.
The company will also offer Mini-X systems in compact cases with interchangeable color-coded side panels. These PCs will also use Mini-ITX motherboards and SFX form factor power supplies. The Mini X will feature the most advanced PC components, including GeForce RTX 4000 and Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards.
