bit-tech recently reviewed the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R RGB…
We had a feeling that 2018 wouldn’t see a decrease in the amount of RGB-enabled products coming to market, and Cooler Master’s latest liquid-cooler seems to confirm it – the MasterLiquid ML240R RGB has not just RGB lighting, but addressable RGB lighting, so you can don some funky rainbow lighting effects or simply tinker with individual LED colours.Conclusions :
We can’t deny that the RGB force is strong with the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R RGB, but you’re certainly paying a premium for the addressable lighting and controller. In its defence, while a tad complicated and cable-laiden, the lighting system is very flexible and has room for expansion too, so in a sense you’re not just buying an AIO liquid-cooler here but a cooler and an addressable RGB lighting system.
That goes some way to justifying the price tag, but the fact of the matter is that Corsair’s Hydro Series H115i Pro RGB cooler costs just a little more but has a larger radiator and is much more capable, especially when dealing with overclocked high-end desktop CPUs. As a result, if performance is your main concern, it’s a much better buy. If, on the other hand, you’re after cutting-edge RGB lighting as well as a capable cooler for a mainstream desktop CPU (or maybe you don’t have room for a 280mm radiator), then the MasterLiquid ML240R RGB should definitely be on your shortlist.
