Cooler Master N300 and N500: PC Cases of Medium Price Tier

Cooler Master announces a release of two new PC cases of mid-tower form-factor. Codenamed N300 and N500, the couple belongs to the medium price tier products and is differentiated by a laconic design combined with a thoughtfully elaborated cooling. Each model features a totally black coating and grid-like frontal panel. In retail market these cases will be offered in two framework variations: with blind side panels and with a large transparent window on one of the panels.

Both models are thought to support motherboards of standard ATX and micro-ATX dimensional type. The most notable peculiarity is the cooling system that primarily consists of two pre-installed 120 mm fans (in the frontal and rear parts of the case); however, this pair might be easily supplemented by seven (with blind construction) or five (with windowed construction) fans more. Moreover, there is a feasibility of incorporating a liquid-cooling system. Some key specifications of both novices are featured below.

Cougar Vortex Fans: the Secret of Success

Nowadays a lot of hardware developers employ Vortex fans from Cougar in the design of various PC components, including CPU coolers and graphics cards. Such demand is primarily explained by an elaborate approach to the fans' framework construction. Profound testing is not the last thing to contribute to the company's success. Indeed, since the launch date in 2011, Vortex line has been enjoying great popularity throughout the world and, especially, on American and European markets.

Therefore, Cougar has designed unique fan impellers that ensure a balanced correlation between such parameters as static pressure, noise level and airflow. The implementation of aerodynamic elements on the internal part of the frame in combination with the grooves on the impellers are able to promote for an improved airflow focusing; this is achieved due to the acceleration of airflow in edge area.

All Vortex fans are based on a hydrodynamic bearing that provides for the prolonged lifetime and …
