To conclude these last few Cooler Master reviews, I’m going to look at the Hyper 412S. It’s the only tower style cooler that I’ve had from them this time. The cooler has quite a low FPI (Fins Per Inch) which should make for a cooler that performs well at low fan speeds. Hopefully it makes for another quiet cooler from Cooler Master!Specifications

Cooler Master might be most well known for their cases and in recent years coolers, but they’ve been branching into the peripheral game for a while now too. Today I’m looking at a soon to be released headset known as the Sirus. Its black, has a very fancy volume control and did I mention that this is a true 5.1 headset? This is no software pretender. Is it worth it though? That’s what I’m here to find out.Specifications Headphones

We might have reviewed the original Coolermaster HAF 932 a few years ago, but that hasn’t stopped Coolermaster sending through their new Advanced edition. It comes packing some new USB 3.0 ports, extra space for SSDs and a svelt black interior paint job.
