Cooler Master's thermal modules and chassis are BTX-ready
Taipei, Taiwan - November 11, 2004 - Cooler Master is pleased to announce that its thermal modules and chassis are already compliant with Balanced Technology Extended (BTX).
Cooler Master's product line carries 2 main types of thermal modules that are BTX-compliant.
Type I thermal module is designed specifically in BTX desktop systems, cube systems, case towers and specific entertainment PCs.
Type II thermal module (low profile type) is tailored for low profile entertainment PC or picoBTX form factors.
For each type, Cooler Master designs 2 models: one for high-performance systems and the other mainstream market use.
Cooler Master's CM Stacker is the world's first chassis that has the unique feature of supporting both ATX and BTX form factors.
CM Stacker can easily be modified to be BTX-compatible. The only requirement for BTX users is that a separate BTX parts package, which includes an air duct and an SRM, be purchased. Cooler Master will be making the package available in the near future.
Shown above is Cooler Master's BTX package for CM Stacker. Parts may be modified and may not be exactly as shown upon release date.
