Cooler Master Eisberg watercooling lineup shown
Cooler Master has two new watercooling products on display at CeBIT; the Eisberg 240 and the Eisberg 120. As the product names suggest, these watercooling kits offer radiators with a size of 240mm and 120mm, respectively.
Both models offer a copper radiator that is designed to be used with two fans in push-pull configuration. Included in the kit is a waterpump from German manufacturer Eheim with ceramic bearings, it has a nominal operation speed of 1500rpm and a maximum speed of 3000rpm. The cooling fluid can be refilled and the kit uses standardized fittings so you can connect third-party components. Cooler Master says the included pump is powerful enough to simultaneously serve four CPU and four GPU cooling blocks.
The Eisberg 120 is expected to cost about 130EUR while the 240 edition should have a MSRP of around 140EUR. Availability is slated for late April, and Cooler Master added that a 360mm edition should follow afterwards.
We'll have to wait for some reviews to see how it performs, but it looks like a good kit that uses quality components and offers expandability.
For over a year now, Cooler Master has also been showing about 3-4 prototypes of what seemed to be internally developed coolers. It's unclear if any of those developments transferred over to the Eisberg series, such as the waterblock technology they had been displaying.
If I'm not mistaken, the most up to date, publicly shown prototype of the "Project A-L2" all-in-one solution is the version seen in the video below.
The pump is actually made by German Eheim which normally produces pumps for aquariums and it features ceramic bearings which suggest that it should have a long life span. Unlike sealed unit watercoolers from its competitors, Cooler Master has allowed for the liquid to be topped up and the pump contains a small reservoir unlike many competing solutions. The tubing is of a softer more flexible type than used by Asetek, but Cooler Master has fitted metal coils to the outside of the hoses that increases the rigidity of the hoses.
Initially Cooler Master will be offering two different SKUs, the Eisberg 120 which should retail at around Initially Cooler Master will be offering two different SKUs, the Eisberg 120 which should retail at around €120 that takes a single 120mm fan and the Eisberg 240 which will retail for around €140 and feature a larger dual fan radiator for a pair of 120mm fans.
Cooler Master isn't likely to launch the Eisberg series in the APAC region but the company is working on a different solution for the APAC market that we sadly can't write about at the moment, but it's based on what Cooler Master showed off at Computex last year. We don't know when this solution will launch, but it's being evaluated by Cooler Master for a not too distant launch as far as we're aware.
