Cooler Master Masterair MA610P and MA410P Review

A Closer Look
On the left, we have the MA6, and the smaller MA4 on the right. They’re not exactly similar, with mostly the RGB fans and controller as the main thing they have in common. I do love the design of each though, and the clean overall design of each is certainly appealing.
The MA6 comes with larger fan retention clips that create a more enclosed design to help drive more airflow through the cooling tower. The top plate looks neat and tidy too, with a plastic clip-on shroud hiding the heat pipes and giving it a matte black finish that’s sure to blend in with your build. The MA4 has exposed heat pipes, but a nice gloss black top panel helps keep things looking smart.
Obviously, the MA6 has a much thicker design, and with the increased surface area and airflow from two fans, it’ll be able to shift a lot more heat. That being said, the slim tower of the MA4 is going to offer greater compatibility with RAM and other components. The MA4 also features some very tightly packed fins, giving it impressive surface area despite the compact design.
Both coolers come with their fans pre-installed. However, they’re all mounted using a large retention bracket that is screwed to the fan. This means you can simply pull the fans off without the use of tools, allowing you to more easily install the cooler and perform general cleaning and maintenance.
The MA6 uses a six heat pipe design, giving a larger direct contact surface area to the CPU. Of course, the smaller MA4 only uses a four heat pipe design but should be more than enough for those who aren’t running crazy high TDP processors.
Overall, both CPU coolers are very well made. The feel durable, they look great, and the only thing left to do is get them tested!
