Cooler Master Announces New Case Lineup
LAS VEGAS, NEV., JANUARY 7, 2019 – Cooler Master, a global leader in PC components and gaming peripherals, today announced its upcoming arsenal of PC cases to be launched in the first half of 2019. Cooler Master plans to release a number of mini tower cases, refresh and remaster the previous N Series as well as offer three cases in partnership with motherboard manufactures, ASUS and ASRock.
MasterBox Q500L and Q500P The MasterBox Q500L applies all of the versatile features of the Q series, but with the capability of supporting a standard ATX motherboard. With the same exterior dimensions as the MasterBox Q300L, support for a standard ATX motherboard in the Q500L was made possible by positioning the PSU in the front of the chassis instead of the base. The movable I/O panel and support for vertical or horizontal orientations, seen across the entire Q series, are also featured on the MasterBox Q500L. With the exterior fully perforated, and covered by a magnetic dust filter, the Q500L offers plenty of airflow for various cooling configurations.
The MasterBox Q500P will be released as a more premium aesthetic version in the Q500 series. Similar to the Q500L, the Q500P will maintain the external dimensions of the Q series, but with the capability of supporting a standard ATX motherboard. Additional proposed features include a tempered glass side panel and an upgraded I/O panel.
MasterBox NR400 and NR600 The MasterBox NR400 and NR600 apply optimal cooling to a minimalistic, subtle design. Each case will support a different form factor; the MasterBox NR400 will support mATX motherboards, while the MasterBox NR600 will support standard ATX motherboards. The use of mesh on the front panel contrasts the iconic smooth stripe of the previous N Series, demonstrating a blend of elegance and airflow. With thermal potential at the forefront of features,
the front panel and top panel offer generous ventilation. The MasterBox NR400 and NR600 features a tempered glass side panel, fastened by thumbscrews on the rear panel, to keep the surface flush and unobstructed.
ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance: MasterBox Q300L TUF Edition
The MasterBox Q300L joins the TUF Gaming Alliance, sporting the TUF marks on both magnetic dust filters and side panels. With support for a standard ATX PSU, mATX motherboards and horizontal or vertical positioning of the cases, the MasterBox Q300L brings all of its advantages to the TUF Gaming Alliance.
A fully perforated chassis offers a high potential for thermal performance and also supports a wide range of optional fan configurations. For aesthetic harmony, the MasterBox Q300L TUF allows users to assemble their system with a full lineup of TUF components.

Cooler Master Highlights 2019 Thermal Products
LAS VEGAS, NEV., JANUARY 7, 2019 – Cooler Master, a global leader in manufacturing CPU coolers, computer components and peripherals, today provides an overview of the company’s upcoming thermal solutions including a new All-in-One (AIO) CPU cooler, three new air coolers and a new fan series.
MA610M Cooler Master will expand on the MasterAir series, with three new air coolers in varying form factors. The MasterAir MA610M will feature a dual-tower heatsink with a new SF120R fan sandwiched between the two towers for ample airflow. The six copper heat pipe design and enlarged fins work in tandem to ensure maximum heat dissipation and maintain stable CPU temperatures.
The Addressable RGB lighting, decorative black top plate and black coating of the MA610M provide users with customization and an aesthetic appeal for any build.
G100M v2 Expanding upon the previously launched G100M, the new G100M v2 will feature the same top down cooling as its predecessor, but with an elongated and narrowed design to eliminate RAM clearance issues. The G100m v2 will utilize Cooler Master’s two phase heat column technology, with a seven times larger circumference compared to standard heat pipes, for a more rapid heat transfer over a smaller surface area. Mounted atop the uniquely designed G100M v2 is an ARGB fan and ring for an added visual appeal. G300P The G300P will be Cooler Master’s next small-form-factor (SFF) air cooler. With an ultra-low profile of 39.5mm, embedded heat pipes and 92mm fan, the G300P will provide users with ample thermal performance in compact form. Other proposed features of the G300P include RGB lighting.
ML240P Mirage Unveiled for the first time at Computex 2018, the MasterLiquid ML240P Mirage will be Cooler Master’s new pro-level AIO cooler. Equipped with a mirror like pump cover that enables users to see into the operation of the impeller when illuminated by the ARGB lighting. When lighting is disengaged, the reflective cover displays the hexagonal Cooler Master logo.
MasterFan The new Cooler Master SF series of case fans are designed with a square fan frame for more direct airflow and pressure. The new square shape of the SF series provides more surface coverage on AIOs and air coolers. The SF120R will be available in both RGB and ARGB models. The newly designed SF120P and 240P ARGB fans will be designed with milk-white fan blades and external rim for a brighter reflection of light; with the 120 model having 24 Addressable-RGB LEDs and the 240 model having 52 Addressable-RGB LEDs. The SF240P ARGB will be designed with an aperture frame, with two fans integrated into the frame to reduce vibration and wires needed for lighting.
In addition, Cooler Master will introduce its new flagship case fan the SF120M. Designed with performance in mind the SF120M utilizes Cooler Master’s Industrial Fan Structure, which decreases the flex of the fan blades while ensuring a quiet operation with maximum airflow. The Double-Ball Bearing decreases friction between the fan and its bearings which further enhances performance.
ASRock Phantom Gaming Coolers In addition, Cooler Master will release the Hyper 212 RGB and MasterLiquid ML240R RGB Phantom Gaming Editions, in collaboration with ASRock. Both coolers will sport the signature aesthetics of the Phantom Gaming series shared throughout the entire product line of ASRock graphics cards and motherboards.
