Cooler Master MasterLiquid Maker 240 CPU Cooler Teased

Ahead of its launch, Cooler Master teased its upcoming high-end liquid CPU cooler, the MasterLiquid Maker 240. This cooler occupies the gray-area between closed-loop AIO coolers, and larger DIY kits that come in a knocked-down form, or which you buy piecemeal for the best combination. Some assembly is still required, but the kit is purpose-built for cooling one CPU out of the box. It comes with standard G 1/4 fittings, so you can expand it with a VGA block, or upgrade it with a bigger radiator later down the line.

The MasterLiquid Maker 240 features a CPU water-block, a 200 ml cylindrical reservoir+pump combo, a 240 mm x 120 mm copper radiator, two MasterFan Pro RGB 120 mm fans, coolant, and clear tubing. The cooler is purported to offer better performance than 240 mm AIO CLCs, and is yet expected to sell at a sub-$200 price-point.

At this point this product has been shown off only at trade shows without any word on release. I will believe it exists when its available for purchase with local dealers.

I can't imagine the pump being too strong. For $200 though I don't expect too much.

So price determines pump power?

Yes. Generally stronger motors cost more money. Imagine that .

And I'd like to add why I mentioned the pump strength, when you decide to expand your loop that pump might be a weak link.

Price don't dictate performance. If you believe that?
So when EK released Predator series for under $200 you say the pump is weak or even Swiftech H220-X2 yet both can run 240+360 rad at samr time with no issues.

Take the time to understand watercooling.

Price usually does dictate performance. You can act like it doesn't but most people know better. I don't think you're as familiar with anything as you think at this point. Anyhow, I made speculations, I didn't post anything DEFINITIVE about the pump's strength so get over yourself.
