Cooler Master has unveiled new coolers in their MasterLiquid line of closed loop AIO cooling that was released in late 2017. The MasterLiquid ML240R RGB (240mm) and ML120R RGB (120mm) feature a newly designed pump along with 12 addressable RGB LEDs on the water block and eight addressable RGB LEDs on each fan. Users are able to customize each LED individually through RGB lighting software through select ASUS, MSI, and ASRock motherboards as well as Cooler Master’s MasterPlus+ software (in beta testing, due out in May) for complete control over your lighting and cooling ecosystem.

The outside of the pump has a gloss finish around the outside along with a ring of 12 addressable RGB LEDs with 16.7 million colors surrounding the cylinder-shaped CPU block/pump. The RGB LEDs shine through a frosted plastic diffuser in an effort to provide uniform color. In the middle of the circle is the Cooler Master logo, also illuminated. Both the ML120R and ML240R are equipped with an addressable RGB LED controller for use with non-addressable RGB components and easy lighting and mode control. Connecting the pump to the radiator is sleeved, double-layer FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) tubing which is said to be durable and flexible as well as giving it a more premium aesthetic than those without the additional sleeving.

The internals on the newly redesigned pump is a low-profile dual chamber unit constructed from PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide) and glass fiber said to resist chemicals and remain unaffected by moisture or immersion in water. Cooler Master also says it is impervious to oxidation and corrosion. The pump itself uses a tri-phase motor intended to help keep power use and noise level down (less than 15 dBA). In addition, the pump is also dual chambered and keeps the cooled and warmed water separate. The cold plate uses machined microchannels for additional water contact surface to help get rid of the heat while the base of the cold plate has a brushed finish.

The matte black aluminum radiators are custom designed low resistance radiator said to allow for a higher flow rate and heat exchange efficiency for good cooling performance. Fin density is not listed in the specifications. Airflow through the radiator is handled by the MasterFan MF120R ARGB fans Cooler Master says are designed to maximize air pressure for AIO liquid cooling. Each 4-pin PWM controlled fan has eight ARGB LEDs able to be controlled through MasterPlus+ or motherboard software. These are the same fans used on the previous ML liquid coolers.

The MasterLiquid ML120R/ML240R RGB are available for purchase today. The 240R is priced at $119.99 and the 120R is $99.99. The Cooler Master MasterPlus+ lighting software should be available in May. Users are still able to use the provided addressable RGB controller for lighting mode control through the compatible RGB Sync Motherboards. These are not quite as inexpensive as the ML120L we saw a few months ago using the same radiator and fans, but still pretty inexpensive with ARGB LEDs and control through the included controller and motherboard software.

    Currently using a coolermaster Neptop 280L pretty decent cooler just the stock fans are pretty terible. High minimum rpm and insanely loud at max. I replaced them with corsair ml140's and its actually great aio.

    I use a Nepton 240M cooler. Mine came with a pair of 120 mm fans that were quiet and moved considerable air. However, the weak link for me is the pump. There are times it hums or pulses. I should probably replace it at some point.

    Oh god, please kill it, kill it with fire! :D

    IMO they really should make these AIO coolers that do awesome at cooling CPU but terrible at making sure the VRM stay cool as well, my suggestion is they have ability to mount a 92 or 120mm fan to the cpu water block to ensure it does not cook VRM on most motherboards which very much is a problem for the vast majority of liquid coolers not a good thing because when it allows much higher cooling to chase higher clock speeds folks likely will, which means higher VRM temps.....not good.

    loaded with RGB on everything and glass cases as far as they eye can see blekk.

    The word your looking for is case fans.
  • zodiacfml - Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - link

    I agree!

    really at $120 whats the point. EK custom loop aluminum products start at around 150 i think for the kits. 30 bux more and you are better off with a better looking/better performing/customisable full blown liquid cooling kit. none of this crap but i get it. its the RGB that makes up for that difference

    Guys, i know, you love vulgar girls
    What about online communication with them without limits? Here you can find horny real girls from different countries.

    I don't see the value of water coolers anymore. Even if you put this on a GPU, there is little benefit for overclocking only a huge drop in temps.
