Cooler Master recently launched the Masterliquid lite 120. Today, we will be taking a closer look at it and letting you know where it stands with us here at TechX.
The MasterLiquid Lite was released on April 18th and is hopefully a great budget option to get an AiO cooler in your system. The MasterLiquid family is quite vast and covers you in all sizes up to 280mm. However today we are going to be focusing on the MasterLiquid Lite and this is only available in 120mm.
Packaging, Contents, & Pricing
The unit comes in a retail ready, black cardboard box. The unit proudly portrayed on the front with the MasterLiquid Lite (MLL) name on the at the bottom of the main face accompanied with the 120 telling us the units size category. The MLL supports both Intel and AMD sockets.
Around the Back you’ll get some more details on the unit, such as the sizing of the parts in mm’s as well as the probable claim of having this thing up and running in five minutes.
The most knowledge from the packaging will come from the side where you see the specifications.Any sizing questions you were having or tech. specs you were looking for can be found here. Keep in mind though, this is a 120mm, low profile device so if you are going to have issues fitting this in, we would like to see where you are trying to fit it that it won’t possible go!
Removing the packaging everything is secured in a molded cardboard fitting standard to most AiO coolers we have seen. Everything also is additionally protected with plastic covering as well as an extra seal on the copper face of the cooler reminding you to remove it before use. The Radiator is aluminum and the tubes to the pump are corrugated plastic.
The fan is a MasterFan 120 AB and claims RPM’s from 650-2000. This is a static pressure fan, you can tell this from the shape of the fans and the lack of between fins. This makes sense as static pressure is the preferred fan type for use with radiators. When stacked the fan and radiator have a combine depth of 52mm, making them fairly low-profile.
Included is all the hardware, an instruction manual as well as the necessary 120mm fan to assist in the actuation of the unit. The MasterLiquid Lite 120 fits in at a perfect budget price of $49.99 at the time of this review on Amazon.
