Up Close: Radiator and Tubing
At just 280mm long the radiator is quite compact, having a small end tank at the port end and a slight bulge at the distal end. The Radiator shroud like the pump/contact plate housing is finished in Satin Black which is nicely counterpointed by the high gloss black tubing and anti kink coils.
As well as looking the part the tubing is also highly flexible regardless of the anti kink coils. The only other connection to consider is the 3pin fan type power lead which is hard wired into the pump housing. This can either be connected to a motherboard header, directly to a 12v supply as we do for our testing, or if you wish to slow things down a bit via the speed reducer that comes included.
The general level of finish is quite high, as we've come to expect from Cooler Master. The Radiator was clean and blemish free with no bent fins or channels. As with the pump the narrow bore tubing is attached via matte black knurled finish compression fittings which blend perfectly with the shading of the other hardware.
At 30mm thick the 240L radiator should fit into the roof of most cases where a roof mounted rad is an option, not forgetting to factor in the 25mm needed for fans should they need to be mounted inboard. the 15mm spacing of the fans is also something of an industry standard now for 120mm fan based radiators, but there are a still a few exceptions out there.
The Radiator and pump are connected by a generous 330mm of tubing with the power and reducer cables being 250mm and 230mm respectively
