MSI is new to the world of CPU cooling, but has long been a juggernaut in the world of graphics cards, motherboards, laptops, and, more recently, barebone gaming systems. It goes without saying that they are on a roll and actively expanding. As such, breaking into the cooling market seems like a no-brainer.
Enter the MSI Core Frozr L. It's an offset single-tower design that comes with a single fan out of the box. With swappable top plates, it matches both their white- and red-themed motherboards and graphics cards. Should the cooler perform well, it would be a perfect fit for someone already making use of other MSI products as it offers a color and theme that matches a wide range of their products.
In today's review, I will take a closer look at the MSI Core Frozr L. Featuring four meaty 8mm heatpipes, a unique offset single-tower design, and a Hydro Dynamic bearing fan, it has the specs of a high quality cooler, but let's see what is on offer here before I sing it any praises.
