There are many ways to increase the performance of your PC. Most enthusiasts will immediately gravitate to overclocking as an obvious performance boost but what about thermal performance? Thermals play a huge role in how your system performs and when they are under control your system can run its best.
In this review I’ll be looking at the MasterLiquid Pro 240 from Cooler Master. This is a dual 120mm AIO watercooling unit that was designed to help re-launch Cooler Master as a leader in the cooling space and redefine some of the common design ideas with AIO watercooling.
When it comes to water cooling there are two major variables to consider. 1) How heat is transferred to the liquid. 2) How heat is transferred from the liquid to the air. The concept is easy enough to understand however the trick is finding a balance between them that doesn’t negatively impact overall performance.
For AIO coolers the intent is to provide a cooling solution that provides better performance than standard aircooling and is cheaper than going with a full DIY cooling loop. To accomplish this many of the components are combined and then distilled it down to a basic cold plate (waterblock) and radiator with a pump in there to move the liquid around.
