Introduction



From the Cooler Master website:
Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry's best thermal solutions. Since its establishment two decades ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved.

Cooler Master is an industry leader when it comes to PC peripherals, cooling, cases, and even power supplies. They have products in every conceivable category and for almost any price range. To be blunt, everyone is familiar with Cooler Master. Enthusiasts the world over have seen, heard about, or used their products at one time or another.

In general, Cooler Master's real claim to fame is due to their wide selection of cases, like the Cosmos and HAF series and the new MasterCase series, which has garnered some serious attention. That said, their growing and evolving roster of products is beginning to take off. The big change is Cooler Master's recent push toward DIY 3D printing support, which allows users to experiment and customize their products.

In today's review, I will be taking a look at the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Maker 92, a dual-fan, all-in-one liquid cooler. At first, it seems to redefine what to expect from an AIO. The radiator and fans are mounted much in the same way as a tower cooler. I will give Cooler Master credit here since this is definitely an interesting design. It may not be pretty, but definitely is interesting.

UPDATE: After noticing an issue with the cooler's mounting pressure, it has since been retested and the new performance numbers have been added.

Packaging and Contents


The box that contains the MasterLiquid Maker 92 is very small, measuring in at roughly 22.8 cm in length, 18.4 cm in width, and 14 cm in height. On top, we simply find the product name and Cooler Master logo. The front shows the cooler itself in all its glory with its compact dual-fan design. Again the product name and company logo are shown. The left side has the product's specifications table, listing all the details for the MasterLiquid Maker 92.


Moving on to the back of the box, users will be greeted by a small list of features in various languages along with some mechanical renderings detailing the unit's height, width, and length. Switching over to the the right side, you will find a paragraph that talks about the uniqueness of the Maker 92.

Opening the box, I was greeted by the MasterLiquid Maker 92 - man that product name is becoming a mouthful. A plastic shield protects the top while it is surrounded on all sides by cardboard and extra space. This is definitely a step up from the packaging used with the Hyper 212X.


Cooler Master decided not to support AMD sockets and has eliminated support for LGA1366 and LGA775. While I doubt anyone will lament the lack of LGA775 and LGA1366 mounting hardware, the lack of AMD hardware is a bit of a miss in my book. When it comes to LGA2011 and the various LGA115x sockets, everything you need is obviously included.
  • 4x LGA2011 screw posts
  • 4x backplate screws
  • 4x nuts
  • 4x backplate screw clips
  • 2x 95mm x 95mm x 25mm fans
  • 1x backplate
  • 1x tube of thermal paste
  • 1x All-in-one liquid cooling unit
