Cool is the name of the game, especially when it comes to the winter months in Canada. We took a look at Thermaltake’s recent 360 mm AIO addition and now its time to touch on Cooler Master’s version. Cooler master has sent us their brand new MasterLiquid ML360R RGB. We are huge fans of AIO coolers for the simple fact that they provide excellent cooling without the hassle of custom loops. Without further adieu let’s get into it!
Packaging and Contents
Cooler Master has done a great job with making their packaging eye-catching. The purple on black with the addition of the beautiful RGB would make even the most stingy of people think about buying this product.The outside of the box gives you all the information anyone would need to quickly check to see if their specs meet the compatibility of this cooler. It also comes with a really cool cross-section of the pump as well. After the removal of the outer shell we find all the pieces in here fit into their specific areas. Every piece is plastic wrapped to prevent any jostling during transport. With the plastic shield removed we get our first look at this semi low profile cooler. The tubing here is braided, which is what we expect from the big companies. The radiator is professional in appearance and continues with the flat black approach that most other coolers have.
Thankfully only two connectors come out of the pump module here. One is obviously for the pump power and the other provides LED support for the circular RGB face plate.
Cooler Master has recently made a switch from illuminating the entire logo to illuminating only the border. We have seen this on their chassis we have reviewed and were really like it. Just to the left of the pump assembly is the tubing attachments. These feel very sturdy when we moved them, providing movement while still staying firm.
With all the RGB here we run into one snag. An abundance of cables may provide us with a cable management nightmare. Cooler Master also includes their version of an RGB controller for the fans and pump RGB. The hardware comes packaged in its own little baggies. The brackets are separated by either Intel or AMD. Instructions usually come in handy when your working with AIO’s for the simple fact that they lay out the exact way to install the product. Cooler Master provides their standard 2 year warranty for this cooler as described in the above picture.
Cooler Master provides three stock ARGB fans for the cooling of this radiator. These fans allow you to personally address every LED each fan. As you may have guessed, three of these 120 mm fans come with the cooler.
