Cooler Master is a company we mainly know for cooling products, cases, and gaming accessories. Earlier this year at CES they showed us that they planned on expanding their profile to include gaming monitors, chairs, and even floor mats! This was definitely a surprise to us, but we’ve seen many companies expand into these products and become very successful so it makes sense for Cooler Master expand as well. Today we are checking out the GM34-CW Gaming Monitor which is a 34-inch VA panel that features a UWQHD (3440×1440) resolution, 144 Hz refresh rate, 1500R curve, and 95% DCI-P3 color gamut.

The Cooler Master GM34-CW 34-inch Curved Gaming Monitor come in a nice retail box. Both the front and back are the same and show a picture of the display and some of the main features are listed.
Opening the box up we can see everything inside is nicely protected. As far as accessories that come with the display you have a quick start guide, power cable, DisplayPort cable, and a HDMI cable.
Like most displays these days the GM34-CW does not come attached to the stand. The stand comes in two pieces and the third comes off the back of the monitor. These three pieces are easily put together using the included screws. Once you have them together you can simply snap the stand right on to the back of the monitor.
