Cooler Master Debuts New CPU Air Cooler MasterAir MA620M

Cooler Master, a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative computer components introduces the MasterAir MA620M CPU Air Cooler. Continuing the renowned MasterAir Series, the MA620M are dual aluminium towers equipped with a newly designed cross-platform mounting system to provide maximum air cooling.

Peak Performance, Unique Aesthetic
The MA620M features a unique dual tower heatsink with enlarged fins and utilizes 6 copper heat pipes for optimal air flow and cooling performance. Inspired by a stealth-like aesthetic design, the MA620M employs unique lighting effects across the top cover of the cooler, powered by addressable RGB.
Versatile Cooling Solutions
The MA620M features an easy top-down mounting system for a quick and easy installation. Inspired by end-user feedback, the MA620M's mounting system is built for versatility, capable of mounting both Intel and AMD CPU platforms. The air cooler also includes improved RAM and GPU clearance to provide efficient and effective cooling solutions for PC builds

Fine-Tuned Cooling Performance: The MasterFan SF120R
Built with the latest addition from the MasterFan series, the SF120R, the MA620 includes Air Balance fan blades optimized for the perfect balance between air flow and pressure. With silent driver IC and a wide range of speed settings, it can be used for silent operation or fine-tuned for maximum cooling performance.

The MasterAir MA620M will be available for purchase at Amazon and Newegg on October 7th. For more information visit https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-air-coolers/masterair-ma620m.

Why dafuq do CM coolers suck? I was researching build for a friend and between Cryorig H5 Ultimate/Universal a single tower cooler vs CM MA620P a dual-tower cooler, single tower H5 is better : https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/coolermaster_masterair_ma620p_ma621p_review/5

I think Cooler Master lost their way.
Not sure how you see the cryorig H5 is better. the difference I saw is small, but in the higher voltage/OC H5 didnt even make it.

Looks like a cut down version of their Wraith Ripper TR4 cooler they developed with AMD.

That to me is exactly what it is.

And we've officially run out of ideas...
This is clearly just a new take on their old V8 and whatever the model before that was called with a centre mounted fan...

CoolerMaster make plenty of good cooling options, just most of their the bang-for-the-buck is around the 212 series.

Still, Scythe for life!

the V8 series and it's design derivatives don't seem to be that good - this looks like the old v8.

Sandwiching a 57CFM 120mm fan between two fin stacks just isnt enough, much better to sandwich a 212 hyper between 2 fans.

Maybe if you replaced that fan with an ML or a Noctua A12 it would be ok...

Had a spare 212 and was lazy enough to use it vanilla.
Push-pull noctua a12 made a heaven-and-earth difference.

One fan? Pulling through fins and pushing air out through them makes for a really sloppy airflow.
RGB speaks for itself too, perf per dollar might not be great...

would be interesting to see a review on this one. depending on price i am sure the closest price noctua cooler to it still stomps it temp wise. but this seems more like those who care about aesthetics. /shrug

Yep this is definitely for those users who lamented on the Wraith ripper cooler being only available for TR4 builds.

I find it funny how they say their fan has the perfect optimization between air flow and pressure as if such a thing exists.

Asthetically, I like it....very sleek & modern, and reminds me of a miniature air conditioner.....

Performance-wise, meh, it's ok, but nuthin to get all googly-eyed about :)

I'll stick with my H115i-ML140 x 4 push-pull, at least for the foreseeable future anyways.....

What's up with the results for the Corsair water coolers on those graphs.... Somehow the more voltage you throw at it the cooler the chips runs???

My problem with Anything coolermaster that comes with their own fans is - the goddamn bearing drone/hum. It's utterly unacceptable.

Especially on the ML240R fans - jesus wept, the drone from the bearings in those is *so* loud and obnoxious that I threw the whole thing out. Just sooooo horrible. Same with the fans on the Hyper 212 Black! It's fan drones like a church minister too...

Cooler master is so lazy and boring.
They haven't changed their lackluster fan blade design for years, they just keep re-releasing old stuff with RGB.
It is kinda impressive that how they can make rifle bearing so damn loud lol

That is a very pretty air cooler. I like.

That being said, its performance is probably only okay.

Is the fan replaceable? Is there future socket support promised?

Having just used intsalled my Noctua on it's fourth different mounting kit (for free, thanks again Noctua!) I'm struggling to see why anyone would buy an air cooler from anyone else unless they also offer support for future sockets and interchangeability with other fans.

Changing the fan on this looks like a royal faff, if it's not a bespoke unit with additional moulded plastic for this specific cooler.

you do realize that the MA620P is not the same cooler as the MA620m which we have no numbers on yet making your statement that the cryorig is better irrelevant and the Cryorig H5 Ultimate score 3/4 of a degree worse than the MA620P which is basically even. and since when does it matter how many fin stacks they have performance is all that really matters

1) Put commas and periods or full stops where applicable.
2) I know it's premature to call them out precedent also matters. If they can't make dual-tower coolers that's cooler than a single tower one, it calls into question their talent/competence at making decent coolers.
3) It matters. In paper MA620P should've been a monster. Six heatpipes. Two heatsinks to isolate and dissipate each end of the heatpipes. iirc heatpipe direct contact base. Comes with two fans. It's so big that at default push-pull configuration it covers three ram slots.

But what does it matter when a cheaper (at least here. both H5s cost $10-12 less than MA620P) cooler performs better? For comparison H5 has four heatpipes. One heatsink. One fan. Ultimate covers one ram slot while universal covers none. Baseplate is nickel plated copper.
