I like that the branding on the pump as become more subtle. I got the first gen (non rgb) that is still working fine and quiet, but I might get that one if I ever get a see through case.

IIRC these are CM’s designs, not Asetek’s.

It looks identical to first gen with RGB.
Mine is sitting in a cupboard waiting for a 3rd or 4th build.

It doesn't have the "cooler master" name. Yes it's subtle, but I still find it more elegant.

Me & you both, but I'm not holding my breath, since this is a key way for each company to distinguish their products from each other, and make their "brand image" noticable to consumers....

I think the price is the major selling point here. CoolerMaster AIO’s aren’t bad butt they also aren’t great so if they can carve out a niche with respect to price the it’s understandable and worth taking a look at in budget builds.

I have a CoolerMaster Master Liquid 240mm RGB model AIO and it’s serviceable on an AMD 3950X at stock. One of the two RGB fans started to leak (ooze is probably more accurate) small amounts of lubricant from the hub. The small droplets likely hit the fan blades and then became even smaller mist like droplet’s.

No damage was done, I should have RMAed it but I had extra fans so I just replaced it. This isn’t uncommon so CoolerMaster may have some quality control issues. I’ve also seen pictures of their AIO units leaking coolant which is never a good thing but there aren’t any Guarantees no matter what manufacturer you go with in this respect.

Generally speaking, I don’t think 120mm and 240mm AIO are the way to go unless space and or price are an issue. Ideally you want to go with a 280mm or 360mm. 120mm and 240mm AIO’s tend to be the bottom of the barre,.....IMO

The problem they face is that Arctic are also competing in that price bracket with their Liquid Freezer II lineup, and those are some of the outright best AIOs on the market at any price (handily outperforming any of Asetek's or CoolIT's designs, with lower temperatures at lower noise levels). I don't see these reaching those heights, but I suppose the RGB lighting will tempt some, given the Arctic coolers have none.

If they got rid of their terrible 3 button controllers it would be wonderful.

Hi, what don't you like about the 3 button controller?
