Cooler Master’s entrance into the water cooling market started with the release of the Seidon series, this consisted of entry to upper mid range closed loop AIO coolers and Cooler Master released three models; the 120M, 120XL and 240M. For those who remember we have actually reviewed both the Seidon 120M and Seidon 240M and we found them to be very good coolers for the money. Cooler Master’s other series of water coolers has been plagued by delays. Cooler Master developed the “Eisberg” series of water coolers, these were designed to fill the upper mid range and high end portion of the market except the difference is that they are expandable AIO coolers, like the Swiftech H220 for example. In addition, Cooler Master’s Eisberg series is developed in partnership with the German water cooling company Alphacool while the Seidon was a totally in-house design.

Today we continue our look at the Eisberg series after taking a close look at the Cooler Master Eisberg 120L Prestige in a previous review which we encourage you to read. The design of this is very similar to the Eisberg 120L Prestige as it uses an identical pump unit with the only difference being a 240mm Alphacool full copper radiator as opposed to the 120mm Alphacool radiator on the Eisberg 120L Prestige. The Cooler Master Eisberg 240L that we have here today is trying to take down the best of the best in the water cooling market. The Eisberg 240L is mainly competing with the Swiftech H220 in terms of being a semi-custom water cooling kit that is expandable.

As I did with the last review I want to introduce pricing early on because it is something people do need to know. Currently the Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige is retailing for about £130 while the Eisberg 120L Prestige costs £120 and you can buy the pump unit on its own for about £90.This makes the entire Cooler Master Eisberg Prestige series hugely expensive, relative to AIOs, but unlike AIOs the Cooler Master Eisberg series can be expanded and has the power to actually run an expanded loop – although this is something we can’t really test right now but may do in future along with the Swiftech H220. Anyway without any further ado lets proceed onto the main review and see how this cooler looks and performs against the competition.

    Horrible opinion and review. It may be different and new, but I would like to know who would actually use this and who would it be the BEST solution for? No one. And for a product to be good, there has to be a perfect consumer for it. It’s louder than air cooler (which defeats the one of two reasons for water cooling imo). Not the great performer/acoustic ratio. Expensive. I like eteknix and I’m a coolermaster fan (pun not intended), but I do not agree that this product deserves any type of award. Also, as coolermaster does things like this, it makes me feel that they are a one trick pony that got lucky and stumbled into the main stage with their hyper 212+ (in which I have to say they never really greatly improved on). They keep coming out with products that have higher margins, but they never come out with something really innovative. They add a bunch of plastic to make their coolers look more cool but their claim to fame is bang for buck. Other companies that make higher margin products (Corsair) actually deliver. I feel like Coolermaster is just a company that has 1-dimensional thinking engineers and ancient managers/leaders that are disconnected from the consumer demands/wants/needs. I think they look up to Apple and think, oh, let’s just make things sleek and people will buy it. Nope. If anything, this is a very crude rough draft of something that might be good.

      I am sorry you feel the review was horrible. Constructive feedback is always welcomed and I will take your comments on board.

    I had a look at this cooler and played around with it for a couple of hours last week and although I couldn’t conduct an in depth test due to the fact It wasn’t installed on a test bench in a climate controlled room and had no sound measuring equipment I have to say that I echo your sentiments entirely Ryan.
    I wasn’t impressed by the included fans at all and when I swapped them for Corsair 2 X SP120’s I noticed a drop in temperatures. Again I want to stress that I never conducted any in depth or meaningful tests due to the reason stated above. (I’ll leave the proper testing & findings to our youngsters, I’m taking a backseat nowadays)
    I was impressed with the presentation & build quality of the unit but certainly not the price.
    If Cooler Master addressed the latter and it’s bundled fans the cooler would certainly be a product to be reckoned with.
    I’ll leave it at that.

    Eisberg is just more then a normal AIO and is something for Professionals — Haters like compare it the wrong way.

    Open Loop Cooling like Swiftech and Cooler Master Eisberg – make it possible to cool down CPU and GPU at once. Corsair and Nxzt System will never do that. Closed loop system are so limited. I will go for open loop Systems and hope the Industry will create more of the open loops systems. Closed loop copied of asetek is already so boring…
