Cooler Master shows its new coolers

Written by Slobodan Simic

Cebit 2011: The Hyper 412S, 612S, Project V-A2 and the new GeminII S524

It just wouldn't be Cooler Master Cebit show if there weren't any new and quality air coolers on the stand. It has been quite a while since we've seen something new from Cooler Master and it looks like it was every bit worth the wait.

First in line is the Hyper 412S, a 98x131x161mm cooler with aluminium heatsink and four copper heatpipes. It features a single 120mm fan with DynaLoop bearing that spinns at 1600, 1200 or 1000 RPM depending on the choice. It will support Intel's socket LGA 1366, 1156, 1155 and 775 as well as AMD AM3, AM2+ and AM2 sockets.


The second addition to the Hyper lineup is a bit more serious and as its Hyper 612S name suggests it features a much larger aluminium heatsink and a total of six copper heatpipes. Another addition is a smaller heatsink located just on top of the contact block. This one has 140x127x163mm dimensions and comes with a single XtraFlo 120mm fan with DynaLoop bearing. Bear in mind that this one also supports additional fan for some intake/exhaust fun.



We all remember Cooler Master's GeminII series and this time CM showcased its newest GeminII S524. The CM GeminII series was always designed so it should cool other motherboard components, in addition to the CPU, of course. The new GeminII S524 is not different as it cools the motherboard VRM as well. The 144x145x105mm dimensions are large enough for it to lean over the VRM heatsink and give it additional cooling from its top placed 120mm XtraFlo fan. The heatsink is connected to a copper base via five copper heatpipes.


The last of the coolers is the Project V-A2, as CM calls it for now. It is a pretty neat 120x120x59mm low-profile cooler equipped with a 15mm thick 120mm PWM controlled fan and four copper heatpipes.

I don't like the way Cooler Master is driving their cooler's business. They're copying designs from Scythe and other brands, just like Thermaltake has been doing for the last years ¬¬.

No creativity, no interest.

Basically the GeminII S524 is like a (smaller?) Noctua NH-C12P.

@moy2010, no creativity, but maybe a better price?

The only thing I like about Coolmaster is the HAF 932 gaming case along with the V8 & V10 coolers, those were innovative IMO, but I do agree with moy2010, it seems as though they are just re-inventing the same old wheel over and over again without true innovation as of late. But Coolmaster is not the only company copying others...

Not surprising. Air cooling has hit that wall where "unique" designs aren't much better then the traditional designs while keeping costs down.
