Cooler Master reveals their unique MasterAir series G100m RGB CPU cooler

Top-down coolers have their advantages; they offer airflow for your motherboard's VRM and other components while also coming in with a low enough profile to fit into even the industry's smallest case designs. 

The only major problem with low-profile coolers is their thermal capacity and their often utilitarian design scheme. Cooler Master has decided to change that with the release of their MasterAir G100M cooler, combining an appealing RGB aesthetic with a massive copper heat column at its core to provide cooling for CPUs with a TDP of up to 130W. 

With the G100M the base of the cooler is all part of a 41.2mm diameter heat column, with the entire block acting as a heatpipe with phase-change technology, allowing heat to be quickly conducted away from the CPU and into the cooler's heatsink. The 92mm fan on this cooler is positioned so that its hub covers the central heat transfer column, ensuring that there are no airflow dead zones in the heat transfer surface (external fins), making optimal use of the cooler's surface area. 

The G100m a delight to look at through a case window, with the combination of a spinning fan and adjustable RGB illumination creating a mesmerising visual effect. This cooler is usable on AM3, AM4, LGA 115X, LGA 1366, LGA 775, LGA 2011/-3 and LGA 2066, all major sockets except for TR4/Threadripper. 

The MasterAir G100M comes with an RGB controller but is also compatible with ASUS Aura, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light and ASRock RGB. This support allows the LEDs on this unit to be controlled with almost all major RGB software utilities.

Well... it is a tiny cooler. Even so, 130 watt is impressive for a cooler of that size. Would be interesting to see how it deals with an 8-core Ryzen.Quote
