Cooler Master Gets TUF On Two Coolers And A Case

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅23.07.2018 22:49:45

Participation in the TUF Gaming Alliance - a multi-brand collaboration between major PC hardware manufacturers - continues a-pace this week as Cooler Master announce new entries into their PC cooling range that reflect this partnership. Variant models in their CPU cooler and PC case range highlight their manufacturing expertise, and thanks for the TUF Gaming Alliance are assured to be compatible with other TUF-branded products.

Those in need of an enclosure for their system may be interested in the MasterBox MB500 TUF Gaming Edition. Based on the Masterbox MB500, the retro design is augmented by digital urban camo fascia designs and window decals that reflect ASUS's TUF aesthetic. Like the stock MB500 it includes RGB LED fans compatible with ASUS Aura Sync (and other lighting systems by 3rd party manufacturers), but in this instance defaults to a familiar yellow-green.

Other features of the MB500 include:

Dimensions (LxWxH):- 494 x 211 x 475mm
Motherboard Support:- ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX
Expansion Slots:- 7
Drive Bays:- 5.25" N/A

The case should go on sale on July 26th, and complementing it will be TUF variants of the MA410M and MA620P coolers.

Cooler Master MA410M TUF Gaming Edition

Not a whole lot changes from the core design of either cooler. The MA410M TUF Gaming Edition incorporates a little of the digital camo design on the top plate, and a little yellow on the fins. Cooler Master's MA620P TUF Gaming Edition is even more subtle with the tweaks; it only makes use of the digital camo motif on the top. A TUF Gaming Edition badge is the only other addition to either model.

Both cooler retain their credentials as high performance air coolers for overclocking mainstream Intel Core and AMD Ryzen CPUs. And, of course, their RGB LED fans.

Cooler Master MA620P TUF Gaming Edition

Like the MasterBox MB500 TUF edition, these new coolers should be available on July 26th.
