Up Close

So having seen the Pro 120 it's now time to cast our peepers over it's larger sibling, the Pro 240.  Now for a rad that's basically twice the size, the Pro 240 comes in a box that's only an inch or so longer.  Still, at least they've made good use of the space as we can see below.

We've also learned the art of getting into the packaging, which as we've said is some of the most secure we've seen.  Should you buy one of these be prepared for a small IQ/origami test though as you attempt to gain entry.

 So here it is, the Pro 240.  To be honest we were expecting it to be the same thickness as the Pro 120, but it's actually only 27mm thick as opposed to 38mm.  Let's hope that loss of thickness doesn't drop it down the charts when it comes to performance.

We can sort of see what CoolerMaster are getting at when they talk about their square section radiator fins, although we do have to say they're a lot less square than the images on CoolerMasters website would have you believe.  To be honest though, we don't really care, as long as they do their job.  The other thing of note here is that, although it can't really be seen, the screw holes in the shroud have actually been tapped after the painting was done so the threads are nice and clean, even if they do look a little rough around the edges.

There it is again, the two story pump assembly.  We really are quite taken by this new design.

And as for the copper contact plate, well we've seen less sexy things on a Victoria's secret runway.

The fans that come with the Pro AIOs are also far from being cheap AIO jobs.  A high gloss shroud encircles smoked black fans, with the whole assembly being mounted via rubberised brackets.

Fitting is quite conventional with bracket mounted threaded pins coming through from the rear and the cold head being clamped down from the front via thumb bolts.  The only irritating thing we found was that the bolts require a flat headed screw driver to tighten them, whereas everything else is cross headed.

So here we have a CoolerMaster MasterCase Pro5 Masterfully cooled by a CoolerMaster Masterliquid pro 240, Sorry, couldn't resist it.

One last look at the cold plate assembly....Oooooooh.

Amazing amount of in depth analysis and explanation fellows, as always, thank you for not only presenting detailed and thorough information but explaining the points you make and why certain aspects/elements are more effective.

Great to see Cryorig putting up great figures. Seems like all of their offerings are at least solid, if not phenomenal, especially for the value.Quote
