6.5 Overall Score
Performance: 7/10
Quality: 9/10
Stability: 8/10

Cooler Master is founded on just one simple thing. Make the best hardware that can be made, period. Cooler Master’s current business lineup of thermal solutions meet a full range of applications. CM’s products range from heatsinks and fans to chassis, and ducting for computers, industrial machinery, even to telecommunications equipment.</p.

Critical to Cooler Master’s ability to successfully pursue this goal is an unrelenting commitment to quality, and standards, as shown by the ISO 9001 certification granted to its main manufacturing plant in Taiwan.

Recently we at XCPUs tested one of CoolerMaster’s newest air cooling heatsinks, and found that the cooler to be not only stylish and quiet, but a good performer for the price and market segment.

Now, we at XCPU’s have what is becoming a trend in the custom PC world. Prefabricated, all in one water cooling. I can already hear the purists scoff at what can be considered blasphemy and sacrilege to all that is good and holy. Namely, building it yourself. Because nothing called water cooling should come in a box. And certainly, it shouldn’t perform well if it performs at all.

But is this true?
