Setup & Installation
Installation of the Masterliquid Lite 240 was fairly expedient with no hiccups. The manual as usual breaks everything down nice and easy so it’s not a pain at all. Starting off by building up the radiator with the two Masterfan 120’s.
Once we had that set up we moved on to assembling the pump and bracket. Following the instructions this is a simple task, just ensure you place the brackets on the pump oriented correctly, that is probably the only area that you could make a mistake, as we did initially, oops!
Plug it all in and the Cooler Master logo will light up and you should be good to go. Let’s get to some testing!
Benchmarking & Performance
Before we get into overclocking we want to run a default setting system stability test. We will be using AIDA 64 Engineer Version for our benchmarking.
After an hour of the overclocked stress tests, the CPU temperature was 55C. Now these scores are decent. However, in comparison to the Masterliquid Lite 120 the difference in temperatures was two and three degrees on the tests, respectively. This leaves us on the fence from having to choose between the two.
Overall the Masterliquid Lite performed basically on par with Thermaltake’s Water 3.0 240 cooler and slightly better than the MLL120. Easy to install and no problems along the way we are impressed and happy with the performance of the MLL240.
