    Cooler Master HAF XB review

    8  

    The latest addition to Cooler Master's HAF range is a weird ol' beast, but we can't help but have a soft spot for its techie aspirations.

    An impressive return to the water-cooling market by Cooler Master with a very capable budget liquid CPU chiller.

    Strapped for cash but still on the lookout for a well-built, third-party tower CPU cooler, that does a decent, quiet cooling job?

    CM Storm Scout 2 review

    The first CM Storm Scout was a dependable, surprisingly roomy case that didn't take up much space - all for under £100.

    An impressive, well-priced mini chassis. The lack of space for CPU cooling and conservative styling are its only let down.

    Cooler Master's huge high-performance PC chassis, the Cosmos 2 Ultra, is definitely not designed with megalophobes in mind.

    Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer review

    8  

    If you're putting down serious money on graphics cards, motherboards and other top-of-the-range components, then you don't want to stick them in a cheap and tacky case. You want something that will show off the quality of your PC.

    Coolermaster V10 review

    Coolermaster V10 review

    6  

    In its attempt to bolt as much on as possible, we think Cooler Master has lost sight of simple efficient cooling. Installation is tricky and causes issues with memory. It's also overly noisy for the level of cooling it provides.

    More watts doesn't mean better watts. Cooler Master shows how good an 800W, 80Plus Gold certified, Nvidia SLI compliant PSU can be

    Cooler Master V6 GT review

    Cooler Master V6 GT review

    6  

    Cooler Master's V6 is named after the 'V' pattern of its six heat pipes, and follows on from the well-received V8 and V10 models. The arrangement is supposed to help spread the heat about better than other designs where the heat pipes are in a neat row, and Cooler Master has the thermal images to prove it.

    CoolerMaster HAF X case review

    CoolerMaster HAF X case review

    8  

    The clue's in the title really. CoolerMaster likes to keep things cool, and the CoolerMaster HAF X (the HAF stands for high air flow) is the coolest of cooling cases. This is a case you could store fresh fish in on a hot day. Only, please don't.

    CoolerMaster Hyper 101 PWM Universal review

    CoolerMaster Hyper 101 PWM Universal review

    6  

    This isn't exactly fair. CoolerMaster's Hyper 101 isn't really designed for the full fruitiness of an i7 920's LGA 1366, but it fitted our test system and was in the office, so we stuck it in. It's really meant for AMD K8, AM2/3 and LGA 755 and 1156 boards, hence the 'Universal' tag. It's a popular cooler and it's easy to see why given the price. The main rival is Arctic Cooling's Freezer 7, a similarly sized and similarly popular.

    Coolermaster Hyper Z600 review

    9  

    As a passive heatsink, the Hyper Z600 fares much better than some of its rivals. It's unique 'X' shaped design and mix of radiator blade length aren't just for show: they've been calculated to improve heat dissipation in all directions, apparently.

    Cooler Master Xcraft Lite RX-3SB review

    Cooler Master Xcraft Lite RX-3SB review

    8  

    Installation isn't exactly the Xcraft's strong point. It's a sleek enough case - ours came in fetching piano black - and your hard drive will certainly look special once it's tucked away inside and partially illuminated by the blue LEDs on the front.

    Cooler Master X-Craft Lite review

    Cooler Master X-Craft Lite review

    8  

    The Lite version doesn't hold a candle to the 360's ultra-simple approach. Instead it's a case of applying an uncomfortable amount of pressure to the chassis and forcing it back together once your drive's inside.

    Cooler Master X-Craft 360 review

    9  

    Any 3.5inch enclosure will be chunky, but the X-Craft 360 does its best. What it lacks in compact design, though, it makes up for in ease of use. All it takes to install the drive is to open the front door and slot in the hard disk
