Cooler Master to experiment more with cases

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 15 2008 @ 07:16 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Bit Tech visited Cooler Master and heard the firm is working hard on a new line of cases that it believes will deliver an interesting new take on case design.
Details of the new case line are very scarce at the moment, as the company is still in the early stages of development. However, we’re told that the new line will be targeted at the lucrative ‘gamer’ market.

We’ve expressed our concerns about the increasing focus on fleecing gamers and enthusiasts by only offering feature complete products with high price premiums in the past, so the fact that this case line is targeted at this market posed more questions.

I asked if the new line would increase ones frame rate in a typical first-person shooter, knowing full well what the answer would be. The company didn’t disappoint in that respect – it said that the case isn’t just targeted at the gamer and it should appeal to other markets as well.

We tried digging further, but the farthest we got was the company saying that it was a move away from many of its ‘playing safe’ designs from recent years. In fact, it said that it doesn’t believe what it is working on has been done before.
