Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240 Illusion CPU Cooler Review

The MasterLiquid ML240 Illusion is one of the newest releases from Cooler Master. This was first introduced the 2021 CM showcase virtual event. At first glance you wont see where its possible to even have as many lights as it does packed into the pump unit. Hence the name Illusion. This has a stealth factor when the unit isn’t lit up. Even the fans, other than the white fan blade, have a stealthy look to them. All the magic happens when the power button is pushed. The MF120 Halo fans light up all over the place. The fins light up and you have 4 individual rings that also light up. Now for the fun part. The pump housing is blacked out with a transparent lens. Although the transparency isn’t really transparent looking. I honestly didn’t think much light was going to make it through the dark lens. If you continue through this review you will find out exactly what I’m talking about. The pump is the 3rd Gen dual chamber you can find in all of Cooler Masters newer product line. This has been a quite and decent performing pump design.

The MasterLiquid Illusion, a new cooler boasting stunning visuals and lighting brilliance. The MasterLiquid Illusion line is available in 240mm and 360mm radiator sizes for your various system cooling needs. The MasterLiquid Illusion redefines lighting visuals with all new design features to the MasterLiquid Series. With 12 Addressable RGB LEDs integrated into the all new translucent pump, the color options are spectacularly customizable. Complemented with MasterFan MF120 Halo fans equipped with 24 dual loop individual LEDs per fan, lighting features are more than even visual enthusiasts can handle. The Illusion is not only elegant, but extremely capable as well, featuring the 3rd generation Dual Chamber Pump for excellent cooling performance. The ML240 Illusion is also available in the White Edition, for those who want to match this stunning cooler in their clean bright setup.

I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing this review sample! Let us see what Cooler Master has to say about themselves on their website:
