Cooler Master Master Liquid 240L Core ARGB Review

A Closer Look

Their latest fan revision looks decent enough, with a fairly simple aesthetic to the frame, but with 9 thick fan blades all in a frosted white that should allow for the built-in ARGB lighting to really make them glow.

They have rubber anti-vibration pads on all corners on both sides, and both the fan and the ARGB cables are treated to a lovely glossy black braiding too.

The fans are the 202003650-GP which are 12v and run from 650 – 750 RPM with a 5v ARGB header on a separate cable.

The pump and radiator look pretty much as you might expect, with a slim 240mm radiator that can support fans on either side of it, and a small Cooler Master logo is printed on the sides.

The radiator is nicely packed with a good fin density that has a greater surface area than the old model; unfortunately, Cooler Master doesn’t provide the % difference, but regardless, it looks good.

The pump is a pretty basic design, with a matte black plastic housing, and a small ARGB-lit icon in the middle.

On the underside, the copper contact plate is quite large, so coverage of the larger CPUs it supports shouldn’t be an issue. Just remember to remove the label before you use it, and that you’ll need to apply the thermal paste that’s included in the box.

The fans are very easy to install, as the screws are thumbscrews, so you can get most of the work done by hand, and then just grab a screwdriver to get them a little tighter (but not too tight!).

Installation of the pump was super easy too, just pop the backplate on, four standoffs, and then the thumbscrews to hold it in place. Really only took a few minutes, but again, remember to apply thermalpaste!

The RGB is great too, and you just hook up the connector to your motherboard or any hub you like really, and you’re good to go.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
