Cooler Master back for EEWC 2019

It is now 27 years since Roger Lin founded Cooler Master in Taipei, Taiwan. Back then in 1992 computer cases were beige boxes that were all air-cooled. But the need for effective air cooling was on the rise. Thus ORYX was founded and produced heat sinks for desktop PCs.

By 1993 ORYX had shipped its first CPU heatsink and was chosen as the prefered cooling solution by several OEMs.

When introducing the ATC-100, the worlds first all aluminium computer case, the name of the company was changed to Cooler Master. The ATC-100 marked the start of the early 2000s departure from the boring beige boxes.

As the new millennium turned, Cooler Master released another world first. The CH5-5K11 as the worlds CPU cooler with heat pipe technology.

Through the early 2000s, Cooler Master had several further worlds first breakthroughs like the first copper heatsinks, first complete retail liquid cooling solution, worlds first AIO liquid cooling solution. And let’s not forget the racecar inspired Cooler Master V8.

The relevance and similarities with GTR24h and the EEWC are all obvious. And we are very happy to have Cooler Master back at the EEWC for 2019.

You will have the pleasure of experiencing the newest cases and cooling solutions at the Cooler Master stand at the 2019 Endurance eRacing World Championship. And for the drivers and teams, there will be the chance of winning some nice Cooler Master products.


About The Author

Peter Munkholm
When John Nielsen won Le Mans 24-Hours in 1990, Peter was hooked with motorsports. He started sim racing on his uncles PC with Formula One Grand Prix by Geoff Crammond in 1992. Then progressed through IndyCar Simulator and IndyCar Simulator 2 on his Amiga 500+. When he bought his own PC in 1994 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick he was already deeply in love with sim racing. His first skirmish with light modding was a Pernod Anis blue, white, and red skin for IndyCar Racing 2. He was hooked! But sim racing really kicked off for Peter with Sports Car GT in 1999. And with internet access and what felt like an ocean of mods. Sports Car GT and the F1 simulators with endurance racing mods swallowed most of his spare time. Then the GTR mod for F1 2003 arrived on the scene, from some Swedish dudes who called themselves SIMBIN. That would change everything! Right about then was also when Logitech steering wheels reach a state of useful. So when the GTR game officially released Peter bought a Formula Force GP wheel the same day, went home and founded the Danish Grand Touring League (DGTL). In 2006 the first LAN event was held. This became GTR24H in 2007. As they say. The rest is history!
