Cooler Master introduces new monitors with high resolution and many Hz

We know the manufacturer Cooler Master mainly from the production of high-quality cases and cooling components for the in-house PC setup. But now the company seems to want to expand into other product lines as well. As we recently reported, promising gaming furniture is coming soon from Cooler Master, for example. But that’s not all. On top of that, the company has namely announced two new additions to its gaming monitor lineup. While the GM27-FQ has a sharp 27-inch flat IPS panel, the GM32-CQ has a crooked VA panel. This resolves just as sharply and offers a refresh rate of 165 Hz.

Cooler Master takes a broader stance

Cases and other components for PC setups no longer seem to be enough for Cooler Master. This became clear in the field of gaming monitors already in 2019. Namely, that’s when the company released its first two displays. The next two monitors called GM27-CF and GM34-CW followed a year later. However, the two gaming monitors could not really win any laurels in Germany. However, the US company didn’t really launch them in this country either. Now the new editions are to follow. And these will probably also play a role in our climes.


The GM27-FQ ARGB is already clearly different from the GM27-CF at first glance. The reason for this is the fact that last year’s 27-incher relied on a curved panel, while Cooler Master installs a classic flat IPS panel in the new introduction. In addition to a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels (WQHD), the panel offers a refresh rate of 180 Hz, according to Cooler Master. The gaming aspect is more than clear here. It also lives up to its designation as a gaming monitor with FreeSync Premium. Thanks to a coverage of the Adobe RGB color space of 99%, you will also be able to use the monitor comfortably for one or the other image or video editing. Cooler Master wants to score visually with ARGB lighting, which can be customized with the appropriate software (MasterPlus+). The 27-incher is expected to hit the US market in the second quarter of this year at an MSRP of $549.


Those who miss the curved design on the 27-incher should take a look at the GM32-CQ. Here, Cooler Master once again relies on a curved panel that also resolves in 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (WQHD). The refresh rate of 165 Hz is still high, but cannot keep up with the smaller newcomer. In terms of color space, Cooler Master specifies 94 percent with DCI-P3 for its curved 32-incher.  FreeSync Premium is also on board here. According to Cooler Master, the GM32-CQ will be launched even earlier than the GM27-FQ. In the US, the company wants to bring the monitor to retail before the end of the first quarter at an MSRP of $499.

German prices still unknown

Cooler Master has not yet commented on the prices on the local market. However, details will follow promptly in this regard. By the way, the two monitors were not the only displays that the US company presented. Cooler Master also showed two other monitors at the “Virtual Show Case 2021”. The GM27-FF stands out positively here. Finally, it is supposed to be able to offer a refresh rate of 240 Hz. However, a release of the other monitors in Germany is rather unlikely.
