The CPU water block is quite large and taller than most of the ones I’ve mounted in the past. So make sure you have plenty of room in your chassis. And unlike most AIOs, where you can mount the cooler depending your preferred orientation … with the MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero, you can only mount it way. The braided tubing MUST be on the right hand-side.
According to the website and instruction manual, you’re supposed to mount the radiator on the top of the chassis. However, I wanted to try an see if I could actually mount the radiator on the front of the chassis … and guess what, it worked and fits nicely too! Albeit the tubing is now crisscrossed. I then proceeded to mount the pump on the PSU shroud/panel which also worked nicely.
For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock Z490 Steel Legend, along with an Intel Core i9-10900K at default clock speed of 3.7GHz (turbo boost 4.9GHz / OC to 5.5 GHz), as well as 16GB of Adata XPG Spectrix D60G DDR4-3600 ram in dual channel mode.
All tests were conducted at turbo clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.
