build01Cooler Master is celebrating 20 years of life (we got to celebrate with them at CES 2012), but it has only been in the last five or so that we have really watched them take off. With the launch of the HAF line and their push into the enthusiast level of hardware (and the CM Storm line) Cooler Master has simply bloomed. Over the years we have tested many products from Cooler Master and still have more to go through. Today we are finally able to show you their newest edition to the HAF line up; the HAF XM. The HAF XM is a mid-tower case that has plenty of room for your three-way SLI or Crossfire plus all of the hard drives you could want. You get all of this for around $130 so let’s take a look and see if the HAF XM is worth the price of admission.

Silencio 450: Peaceful Computing


Chino, CA – October 25th, 2011 - Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, power supply, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, today adds a new sibling to the Silencio Case Series, the Silencio 450.





Quiet Operation

The Silencio Series represents the best solution for sound absorption with system builds of all levels. Sound silencing foam padding seeks to severely reduce system noises produced by hard drives, numerous cooling fans, and other devices. Combine this with a solid-steel frame, vibration inhibiting rubber feet, two Cooler Master quiet-spinning fans and the Silencio 450 nearly becomes completely silent. Those that value a quiet computing space will immensely appreciate the Silencio Series.



Intelligent Interior

Look beyond the modest exterior of the Silencio 450 to find a clean, intuitive, and spacious interior. Three 5.25”, six 3.5”, and one 2.5” hard drive bay are set inside a solid steel frame. An easily-removable hard drive cage allows users to mix and match various hard drives for maximum flexibility and drive space. Removal of the included hard drive cage opens the door for the possibility of installing high-end graphics cards such as the AMD Radeon HD 6990 or NVIDIA GTX 590. Super Speed, backwards-compatible USB 3.0 and a versatile SD card reader provides users with several ways to connect data on-the-fly. A surprisingly efficient intake-exhaust cooling system throughout the interior provides for maximum airflow. Dust filters protect precious system components from potentially dangerous dust build-up over time. These can be accessed quickly for easy maintenance. Users taking the next step in silent cooling may opt for a custom watercooling setup. The Silencio 450 includes rear retaining holes that support optional water cooling radiator installations. A switchable door hinge creates an added level of convenience as well. A clean exterior design, brimming with features and reasonable price make the Silencio 450 the perfect silent partner for any enthusiast.

The Silencio 450 will be available at online and retail locations worldwide October 2011 for $59.99 MSRP. Click here for more details.

Thermaltake America wants to Share Success

Level10GT199Thermaltake America wants to share some of their sucess with the people that have helped them get where they are. To do this they are going to cut the price on the original Level 10 GT. This is the original Black Model and not the Snow Edition like we reviewed recently. This offer will only run until November 30th so if you have been looking at this case but not overly happy about the price now is the time to save some cash on it.

We have the full PR Below so we will let Thermatake tell it in their own way.


Thermaltake America – Sharing success, spreading LOVE with the original Level 10 GT

City of Industry, CA – October 19, 2011 – Thermaltake America today announces the recommended retail price of the popular Level 10 GT full-featured gaming chassis, will be reduced  from $269.99 to $199.99 for a limited time until November 30, 2011.  The Level 10 GT chassis has made a major mark in the performance gaming community with its unique design inspired by working with BMW DesignworksUSA to create a chassis that not only catches the eye but has unique lines that cannot be mistaken for any other.  The inclusion of Multiple Colorshift fans enhances the chassis ability to dissipate enough heat to handle even the most monstrous gaming rigs.  Add to this the inclusion of dual front panel USB 3.0 connections that connect via an internal 20 pin header means that users have the ability to use the newest technology with ease. 

“Since the launch of the Level 10 GT gaming chassis, [Thermaltake] has received tremendous amount of positive feedbacks from the PC enthusiasts communities,” stated Weller Chen, Director of Product Management at Thermaltake America, “and to show our appreciation and more importantly, to make this great product more accessible to everyone by offering this limited time price drop.”

The price drop is channel wide and consumers can expect to purchase the Level 10 GT gaming chassis through major retailers and e-tailers at the discounted pricing immediately until the end of November. 

“sharing another of Thermaltake’s success of the Level 10 GT series gaming chassis, we want to do something that is rarely done by companies these days by sacrificing our bottom line in order to reinstate our enthusiasm for the promise of delivering the ultimate user experience both from purchase decision to the process of putting together a high-performance PC,“ commented President of Thermaltake America, “today, we are putting our words into action.”
