Cooler Master has introduced its new CPU cooler for small form-factor PCs. The MasterAir G200P is 39.4 mm tall, and CM claims it features an advanced heatsink, a relatively quiet fan, and addressable RGB LEDs that enable modders to build attractive compact desktops.
The MasterAir G200P measures 95×92×39.4 mm (3.7×3.6×1.6 inch) and features an aluminum base plate with over 50 fins and two C-shaped heat pipes as well as a copper base. The cooler is equipped with a 92-mm PWM fan with RGB lighting that features a rotational speed between 800 and 2,600 RPM ± 10% and can generate up to 35.5 CFM air flow and up to 26 dBA noise.
Cooler Master’s MasterAir G200P is compatible with all modern processor sockets from AMD and Intel, though the manufacturer does not disclose a 'maximum' TDP, but does rate the cooler for use with 95 W CPUs. Typically, low-profile CPU coolers that are around 30 mm tall are rated for CPUs with a 35 W ~ 65 W TDP, but the MasterAir G200P is slightly taller and has heat pipes, so the manufacturer rates it for 95 W processors.
One of the key selling points of the MasterAir G200P is its addressable RGB lighting that can be controlled using software from leading motherboards makers.

Dragonstongue - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkIMO for the size and only using seems like 2 heatpipes, price of max $34.99 would make far more sense.
Guess CM still believes they are the "best choice" or something along those lines?
they also 99% of the time overrate the TDP their coolers can actually handle, I am sure is a decent cooler, but no way in heck can it handle the same cooling capability that their full blown tower style coolers (or anyone else) can handle, but more or less pricing at/above the venerable hyper212 plus is moronic (^.^)
Armourcore9brker - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkYou have to pay for the size. It takes more engineering to do anything in a smaller form factor.
flyingpants265 - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkNo, it takes less metal
Chaitanya - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkIt takes more machine hours packing fins in a smaller area.
PeachNCream - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkYou are both correct. It takes less material which lowers manufacturing costs and generally more careful engineering which can raise costs. Smaller form factor components have also seen lower sales volumes because fewer people are prone to buy compact PC parts so the input costs are spread out among fewer units sold.
In any event, I would be reluctant to put one of these things on top of a 95W TDP CPU given the current state of TDP ratings being more about sustained load after hitting a thermal budget peak rather than the actual maximum TDP of the CPU. This sort of cooler is probably better suited for 65W TDP-rated chips and even then, good case airflow would certainly help the situation.
shabby - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkSize, engineering has nothing to do with it, in this segment people will pay whatever so they can have their 95w equipped box in the palm of their hand.
Alistair - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkIf it performs better than the noctua model, why not charge the same? I'm excited to pick one up, if it is quality, the price is worth it, otherwise it isn't. The Hyper 212 Black RGB is the best cheap cooler (the one I bought has an absolutely silent fan, very good) right now, so Cooler Master has piqued my interest.
Alistair - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkOkay I checked the CAD price, it is $10 too high haha.
jeremyshaw - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkIt's also 2.4mm taller than the Noctua. Probably not a huge deal, but it does preclude installing a fullsize 25mm fan in an actual low-clearance situation.
To be fair, installing a 25mm fan in such a situation would be noisy. This brings up another issue - in the Dan A4 SFX (and similar min-clearance cases) the CPU fan on a Noctua NH L9i/a is ~11mm away from the side panel, and moving it even a tiny bit closer induces a lot of turbulence noise.
Alistair - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - linkI personally am not interested in the L9 though, I like the L9x65 the taller one.
