Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero AIO CPU Cooler Review

The Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero, is an all-in-one CPU cooler that’s designed for Intel processors that uses the LGA1200 socket.  It features a unique water block that uses Intel’s Cryo Cooling Technology, to help reduce CPU temperatures, and delivers a cooling solution, unlike that of your traditional CPU coolers. This will allow your processor to reach higher frequencies at lower voltages.

The ML360 Sub Zero, utilizes a unique combination of hardware, software and firmware, to push the thermal limitations of your processor. The unique water block houses a circuit board, that features a 52×52 mm TEC unit, with built-in sensors for temperature and dew point, as well as a unique condensation barrier … all of which, helps to minimize the effects of condensation.

Wait! Timeout! What the hell is Thermoelectric Cooling!?

OK, so Thermoelectric Cooling is better known as T.E.C. or TEC. For all those who don’t know what it is … basically in nutshell, it uses electrical current, to create a heat flux, at the junction of two different types of materials. This is called the Peltier Effect. One side gets hot, while the other side gets cold.

TECs are extremely power hungry, and in this particular model, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero can consume a total power consumption of up to 200W! So yes, we recommend a power supply of 850W or higher.

 

 

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:

Building a PC is a highly personalized journey. We know that components are carefully chosen based on price, functionality, and aesthetic preference. Your personality is embedded in each of those choices, transcending from hardware to an immersive, custom-built experience. From custom PCs to all-out gaming rooms, we encourage every decision to reflect who you are.

Our components represent so many different personalities because PC enthusiasts don’t fit into just one mold. It doesn’t matter if you’re a student on a tight budget, a graphic designer that’s brand new to building, or a veteran modder of high-end gaming PCs; we offer components to inspire creative freedom in everyone. We believe that personal preference and individual expression leads to innovation.

The simple desire to make something better is exactly why Cooler Master is the standard in thermal innovation today. The aspiration to provide better cooling was a matter of personal preference, inspired by the freedom and enjoyment in building and creating something new. Now, our strategic partners like NVIDIA and AMD, our loyal community of gamers and PC enthusiasts, all rely on Cooler Master to strive for thermal excellence. That’s the result of simply wanting improved functionality and wanting to tailor something to fit our personal preference. That’s how innovation starts.

The PC community is never short on feedback and strong opinions—we love that. Hearing your thoughts and ideas give us the opportunity to be a part of your building journey, it helps us perfect the DIY experience, and it encourages us to adapt our product development process. After all, it is the community of builders, creators, and gamers who are an integral part of Cooler Master, helping bring our ideas to life. Together, we have been able to heighten the standards of how PCs are configured, transform the way they look and feel, and surpass the technological expectations of today. That’s where our passion stems from and that’s what it means to truly Make It Yours

 

 

OK, so I heard that the ML360 Sub-Zero, can reduce CPU temperatures, somewhere in the region of between 20 degrees, and chilly 5 degrees Celsius, at full load with all cores overclocked.

It’ll be interesting to see how this thermoelectric CPU cooler will perform against other AIO coolers that we’ve tested in the past … so I can’t wait to put his on our test rig and see if there’s any condensation and whether this will affect its performance.

OK let’s not waste any more time put this in or test rig, but before we do that let’s do a quick unboxing. You can buy the  standard Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Mirror ARGB AIO CPU Cooler (without Thermoelectric TEC) for around USD $140 from Amazon – https://amzn.to/39rmML8
