Back in January 2013, Asetek filed a suit against CMI USA Inc, formerly known as Cooler Master, for patent infringement on two of the patents held by the company. Asetek requested that CMI must cease and desist the production and sale of its Seidon 120M, 120XL, and 240M liquid cooling systems because the pumps were too similar to its own design. On Wednesday, a jury in the US District Court for the Northern District of California ruled that CMI had infringed on Asetek’s patents.
Cooler Master dropped us a note today to let us know that two of its newer Silencio cases are headed to North America. Specifically, Cooler Master's Silencio 652S and 352 enclosures will be available soon, in case you're looking to build a quiet system. Both cases utilize sound dampening material on the panels and both are capable of mounting at least one 240mm radiator.
Cooler Master's been hard at work updating its liquid cooling line, and what the company came up with is the Nepton 120XL and Nepton 240M. These are the newest additions to the Nepton family of closed-loop water coolers, and what they bring to the table are new fan designs. They use Silencio FP 120 fans to deliver high-pressure performance at lower noise levels than their predecessors.
