When it comes to all-in-one liquid coolers for CPUs, Corsair has been at the forefront of the market since the beginning. That's because they consistently deliver excellent cooling capabilities, compiled with innovative designs. They're at it again with a…
EK has been at the forefront of custom PC water cooling solutions since 2003. As one of the early pioneers and today as one of the industry’s best, EK has had a long history of products for the custom PC water cooling market. Today we are privileged to be able to review one of their coolers from a new line of Budget-Oriented AIO coolers they have brought to market. Journey with us as we see what this line of AIO coolers has to offer.
Today I bring a new product from Cooler Master, based off their already extensive AIO range of products, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240 Mirror on the surface looks to compliment any RGB enthusiast's build but how is it at cooling? Let's see what it's all about! The product includes their latest 3rd generation dual chamber pump to ensure good coolant flow consistently through the AIO. Cooler Master chose to go with a black colored product, which will fit stealthily in any build apart from the LEDs which will be visually pleasing for the RGB crowd. As with most AIOs the radiator material is made of aluminium while the block/pump cold plate is made from copper. The pump included in this product is made to last at least 70000 hours, which equates to about 8 years being on constantly 24/7, so needless to say that the pump will easily outlast the warranty period for this product. One bonus is that on top of that, the pump is very, very silent, you'll have a hard time hearing it if you'd have no other fan in your build, so check which fan header you'll be plugging it's 3-pin connector and turn it up to 100% in BIOS to maximize this AIOs capability! Even at 100%, it should only draw about 0.2A (less than 2.5W!)
The rise in CPU performance gives way to increased heat output as CPU manufacturers push the silicon to new heights for performance and temperature both. The latest generation of Intel i9-10900K CPU is notorious for running hot under heavy load. To combat this, Cooler Master partnered with Intel to develop a subzero CPU cooling solution for mainstream applications. We managed to get a sample of this new cooler, so please join us in exploring this new technology.
EK has been bringing you custom PC water cooling solutions since 1999. They've gained recondition as one of the industry leaders for all things custom water cooling, but what about non-custom water loops? Budget oriented all-in-one water coolers have come a long way since the early days. For the most part, EK has focused on the higher end AIO's or hybrid solutions, until recently. EK recently released a new line of budget-oriented AIO coolers, and they've packed in quite a lot of features for the price point. Join us as we evaluate this all-in-one cooler and put it to the ultimate test with our HEDT X299 test bench.
