CoolerMaster has a few new products for your CPU.


We stopped by CoolerMaster at Computex to take a look at what's new. First up are two new water coolers, the Eisberg 120 and 240, which differ in their size of radiator and the addition of a second 120mm fan.

Both feature a copper base plate and are open loop systems, so user can choose the coolant. The fan(s) measure 120 x 120 x 25 mm (4.7 x 4.7 x 1 in) and have a speed of 1600 RPM. Supported sockets include: Intel LGA 775/1156/1155/1366/2011 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2. Look for these in early July.

In August, CoolerMaster will be launching an air cooler called the TPC 612. It will have a single 120 mm fan, but air flow and noise information weren't yet available. It features four 6mm heatpipes, a flat vapor chamber design, a nickel plated copper base, and aluminum alloy fins. The dimensions are 145 x 79 x 165 mm (5.7 x 3.11 x 6.5 in), and for the heatsink itself 120 x 120 x 25 mm (4.7 x 4.7 x 1 in)


Other upcoming products discussed, but not available for photography are the AL120 and 240, plus an upcoming flagship. The AL120/240 will be similar to the Eisberg, but will have a flatter water block. There will also be a low-cost version of the AL120 that's still unnamed, but targeted for budget users around $50.


Coming late July will be V8GT-VC-X, the upcoming flagship air cooler. It will have a square vapor chamber in the base of the cooler, made of nickel-plated copper, along with eight heatpipes. Expect dual 140 mm fans with LEDs with fins made of aluminum alloy.

The newest CPU cooler from the traditional manufacturer, Cooler Master, is the TPC 812, which has a tower heatsink with a 120 mm fan, six U-shaped heatpipes, and two vapor chambers. Let’s see if it really offers the “True Performance Cooling” that its name suggests.

The vapor chamber is a heat-transfer device where a phase-changing compound flows. This compound receives heat on one end, becoming vapor. It flows along the chamber and, when it reaches the “cold side,” it condenses again to the liquid state, releasing the heat previously absorbed. For all practical purposes, it is actually a “flat heatpipe.”

Unlike most Cooler Master products, the box of the TPC 812 uses black and bordeaux tones.

What are Vapor Chambers?

Vapor Chambers provide far superior thermal performance than traditional solid metal Heat spreaders at reduced weight and height. Thermal spread resistance is almost neglectable and thermal resistance is x times lower than (refer to copper, carbon nanotube compound, nano diamond compound). Vapor Chambers enable higher component heat densities and TDPs at safe operating temperatures, extending the components and products life.


How do Vapor Chambers work?

As the coolant molecules are heated they change phases. The vaporized coolant convects freely through the chamber. The Molecules then condense on cold surfaces, dissipate their heat load, and are channeled back to the coolant reservoir. Since the rate of condensation depends on the temperature delta of the coolant and the contact surface, the coolant automatically streams towards the coolest surface area. This self-organizing active molecular coolant stream within the Vapor Chamber is responsible for its superior thermal properties. As a result it provides stable and evenly spread temperatures on all of its surfaces, regardless of the location and density of the heat source below the chamber base.

The first time I saw this CPU cooler at a Coolermaster display booth in OC Nation, I became completely obsessed with it.
Undoubted master in the art of processor cooling technology, Coolermaster once again comes up with the X6, another automotive themed cooler in the lines of the V8, V10 and V6 GT.

Honeycomb fin structure increased the surface area within the same space which makes it more efficient in heat dissipation. More fins means better cooling. As for this cooler the hex-shaped fin is larger than a normal flat heatsink fin.

The copper pipes and heat spreader are nickel-plated.
Angled heatsink base orientation thus creating an optimal airflow.
Intake fans which are usually located in the front of the case will push air towards the X6’s fan then to the rear exhaust fans dispersing the warm air.

With the X6 user’s guide, first-time Coolermaster heatsink users would find it an easy task mounting the cooler to the motherboard.
It would take around 4-6minutes to complete the installation.

Accessory box contains brackets and backplate for both AMD and Intel, thermal paste, rubber grommets, bolts, nuts and wrench plus Philips screw to hex adaptor. Rubber grommets should be adhered to the mounting holes before putting the X6 in place.

It’s a lot safer to use the Philips – Hex adapter over the other wrench as it may damage the circuit board.

One must be carefull when choosing a case, motherboard and ram for the build with this cooler to avoid hassles. I suggest you go for a casing with a depth of 200mm for the cooler to fit in. As for the motherboard, go for the models whose width is 9.6 in (244 mm) or bigger. If in case you’ll be using an old/existing motherboard narrower than the recommended size then buy the rams with the standard sized heatsinks.

Next is the temperature comparison.
Done reading the temps, before and after installation of the Coolermaster X6 cooler.
Before – using Intel’s stock cooler
uYeiq.jpg
After – with the X6 cooler installed
kNngf.jpg
Averaging a 4-5 degree Celsius decrease in temps during normal use compared to the stock fan! Not bad for a heatsink with 6 (six) heatpipes.

Overall the Coolermaster X6 cooler is a bang for the buck cooler (priced at 2550 pesos) when it comes to aesthetics and performance!
This kickass cooler is well suited for gamers and overclockers alike.

Great job Papang!

I think you can now be classified as a Pro-Modder...

BTW, this is Cham_E_Lyon...

This tut was meant for the people who wants to either paint the fanblades, change the LEDs or simply repair the circuits!

HAPPY MODDING!
