Here we are at the Cooler Master and CM Storm booth at Insomnia i51 LAN gaming festival, there is loads to see and do at the show, for both gamers and day visitors who just want to come and join in the fun. Cooler Master are giving visitors a great opportunity to get hands on with many of their latest and greatest gaming peripherals, as well as try their hand at winning some prizes.
Their gorgeous Aluminium series Mech keyboard is always a popular choice and their typing challenge is a great way of putting the mechanical keyboard through its paces; type out the pattern on the screen in a fast enough time to win some cool prizes over the course of the weekend.
The quickest time can win the keyboard, which is worth £150, daily prizes of Recon gaming mice, and plenty of smaller prizes such as these cool new T-shirts, lanyards and stress balls.
The CM STorm Trigger Z, equipped with Black Cherry switches is really nice, featuring some sleek back and unlit keys, which is available at the show for just £79.99.
Their latest range of gaming mice are here too, including the awesome Recon, Reaper and Mizar hooked up to their Skorpion mouse cable bungee.
One of my favourite keyboards on show is the Stealth, blank key cap tops with some subtle markings on the front edge give the keyboard a sleek and rather unique design.
The QuickFire Ultimate offers stunning red LED backlighting, mechanical keys and a rugged design that make it ideal for gaming.
The Quick Fire XT offers a slightly more cut-down edition, offering the great gaming performance of mechanical keys, but the lack of LED backlighting offers a much more budget friendly price tag of £59.99.
A rack of Cosmos SE chassis are fitted out with high-end gaming rigs, each equipped with a range of Cooler Master and CM Storm peripherals so you can sit down and play Titanfall and Goat Simulator till your heart is content.
Those on a tighter budget can check out the Devastator bundle, a low-cost gaming keyboard and mouse combo. We especially like the membrane keyboard as it’s got a typing sensation similar to that of Cherry MX black switches.
That’s everything from the Cooler Master booth for today, but we’ll be back shortly with even more great coverage from the show. We’ll also be following up with Cooler Master in the coming weeks to bring you reviews of the new products they had on display.
