Cooler Master Introduces the MasterLiquid Illusion AIOs: ML240, ML360, and ML240 White Edition

Cooler Master has added another liquid cooling AIO family to its stable of products. The new MasterLiquid Illusion AIOs are available in either 240 mm, 360 mm, and a special, all-white ML240 version. Cooler Master has gone out of its way to make sure the RGB looks good on this new family of products, employing as many as 12 ARGB LEDs in the transparent pump. The AIOs ship with the company's MasterFan MF120 Halo fans, which themselves have a dual-loop 24 ARGB LEDs for added RGB pizzaz. The ARGB options can be customized with the included Addressable Gen 2 RGB controller and Cooler Master's MasterPlus+ software.

The MasterLiquid ML240 Illusion and MasterLiquid ML240 Illusion White Edition will soon be available for purchase for a starting MSRP of €119,99. The MasterLiquid ML360 Illusion will be available for a starting MSRP of €139,99.

Caring1Why no 280 version?
Perhaps because this way they can just add their existing 120mm fans? Also, more common design, hence economies of scale.

It looks a bit like a budget Lian Li, maybe CM manufactures both.

IKR! I cant get behind things like this because someone at CMMM doesnt listen except to a select audience.

It's not like CM doesn't have any 280 coolers.. is it the lack of a WHITE 280 that people are complaining about?

Just like Asus' graphics cards, sold as "white editions" and the PCB is still black.

Reason for that is the robots that make the boards/place parts have issues with their laser guidance against a white PCB due to reflection/refraction of the laser(s).

Fairly sure the white pcb ones from (I forget the AIB name) are Hand-made hence cost a (bigger) fortune and are in smaller supply.

Yeah, they aren't as easy to manufacture as a "normal" PCB. The price premium in high-end hardware wouldn't probably be a thing anyway though.

Surely in these days of nearly daily technical advances, somebody would have found a solution to this problem.. ????

Like maybe develop/use NON-reflective/NON-refractive pigment/additives in the coatings.....

Wish they would make a 280mm version. Also, an LCD version, like the NZXT Kraken Z series wouldn't go amiss,..... just make it cheaper,..... :)

Are you sure about that?
It sure sounds like a made up theory.

Delicious looking cooler, best looking RGB AIO I've seen so far. Shame CM hasn't developed 140mm halo fans for a potential 280mm version. Guess CM only focuses on 120mm and 200mm these days.
