We are not too sure if it’s the whether or what but seems that “cooling” is the theme at the moment. Today we are going to take a look at the MA610P from Cooler Master. Recently released, this cooler brings dual 120 fans to a fairly substantial sized radiator to hopefully bring great cooling potential.
Contents, and Pricing
Part of the Master Air Series, the MA610P, is a dual 120mm RGB fan design. The design is brilliant and showcased on the front of the retail packaging you can see the cooler while in use. A black and purple designed box focuses on the unit as it should while also giving you full access to all specifications and features. With a cooler of this size you will definitely want to ensure that you have sufficient clearance before assembling and much more importantly, before purchasing. Requiring 166.5mm of clearance, the MA610P is not a small and subtle cooler.Included with the MA610P are all the hardware needed for AMD or Intel as well as some quick start manuals to get you to the build. Everything that comes with the unit is fairly standard. Some unique pieces are the controller as well as well as the fan splitting cable. Taking a closer look at the main unit, you’ll quickly learn the MasterFan’s actually clip to the radiator to stay secure, took a little to get used to it but works seamlessly.
The MA610P is available on Amazon for $67.51 USD (click here) at the time of this review.
Setup & Installation
Installation of the MA610P was fairly straightforward however clearance is the name of the game with this one. The fans of the unit sit perfectly flush on top of our Viper Elite Ram. Given we used an ASUS Strix Z270I mini-ITX board for this build everything is a little compact but RAM with larger heat-spreaders may require extra attention or substitution. The six copper pipes flatten at the bottom to ensure close and perfect fitting to the CPU. Added is a heat-sink directly on the pipes before the main cooling unit of the radiator is reached.Getting the radiator hooked up was the easy part, however, we can’t stress enough that be patient and attentive when securing the radiator as you can over-tighten quite easily, which is unnecessary and could cause damage if you torque too much. When we hooked the fans on they barely fit, as we mentioned earlier, check the specs before you purchase this cooler. As you can see… super tight fit.As you can see running and hooked up it make a great addition to our build. Now lets take a deeper look at some of the specifications and testing protocols.
