MSI Also Announces MAG CoreLiquid Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

Take cooling underwater with MSI's very own and very first liquid cooler, the MAG CORELIQUID Series. The MAG CORELIQUID Series presents itself to the world with four models: the MAG CORELIQUID 360R, MAG CORELIQUID 360RH, MAG CORELIQUID 240R, and MAG CORELIQUID 240RH. Constructed from high-quality materials, the MAG CORELIQUID Series remain durable and delivers unstoppable cooling performance even under harsh conditions.

To dampen the sound of the overall assembly and reduce noise, the pump has been integrated into the radiator. To lengthen the life expectancy of the MAG CORELIQUID Series, a durable three-phase motor is built into the core of the pump, resulting in minimal vibrations. Furthermore, the MAG CORELIQUID Series is constructed with three-layer netted plastic tubing with a reinforced mesh exterior for resilience.
Whirl chaos without compromise with dazzling ARGB lighting and an aggressive aesthetic. The 270 degrees rotatable blockhead allows you to mount the cold plate at any orientation, turn it in ways you like, and set it upright.

Included with the MAG CORELIQUID Series comes the MPG MAX iHUB. Connect it to organize cables and choose lighting effects with ease via Mystic Light. Sync MPG MAX iHUB with an MSI motherboard through Dragon Center to control fan speeds with PWM adjustment and a custom fan curve.

I was ignoring this until i saw pump in the radiator, that got my attention for something new at last

Not an Asetek design also NZXT has pumps in radiators similar to that so probably same OEM.

The pump in radiator design is needed in order to avoid existing patents. But iif this allows them to make a sturdier pump, why not. Also, the liquid flow direction in the radiator looks uncommon.

Wonder if they'll charge $220 for a 240mm like Asus does for their ridiculously priced AIO

Seems like that's two points of contact for the hot coolant to heat up the cold coolant. I wonder if there's any advantage or if it's all marketing. Also curious if there's any increase in restriction since it's a 2:1 ratio of coolant moving down the rad vs moving up.

Looks nice, never seen a AIO without a fan though :)

Yay....MORE unicorn vomit....It's a interesting look but yeah more of the same..The 360 rad is nice though.

it does have fans actually, they just don't show them in the radiator photo.

assuming the CPU mount is copper as usual, the aluminium radiator is a dealbreaker sadly

If you are worried about the effects of galvanic corossion, don't be, there's no direct contact between the two metals apart from possibly a copper cold plate and aluminium pump housing.
With no fluid contact between the two metals it's highly unlikely to occur.

Swiftech has been doing this for over 7 years

It is inevitable to occur.... you don't need direct contact. By definition:

"Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially to another when both metals are in electrical contact and immersed in an electrolyte." Electroyte = coolant. read the following link... start to finish

here's some pictures of metals not in contact

As I stated and you just backed up, the two metals are not in direct contact with the coolant, only the Aluminium portions are. :slap:

I'm no water cooling expert but I think it cou,d depend on the product. The corsair in this video
seems to favor corrosion as the coolant is in contact with both metals.
For my first foray into water cooling last summer I ended up looking only for all-copper aios like the ekwb I eventually bought just to be safe

NZXT is the true winner here with their new LCD's built into the cooler. Awesome stuff and high qualiity.

..and high price. You'd be money ahead to glue a Raspberry Pi with a screen onto it yourself.

Edit: Is it cool? Sure. I just think they're raking us over the coals for it.

Definitely not cheap but i love all the products they put out. Great stuff.

That's where you are wrong, as It is the same company who made the NZXT M22 - Apalcool (Apaltek) - and they are the company who own the patent for this design

Except Asus did it first with the ryou, and looks much nicer than the NZXT One I think...
