Packaging and Overview
As a premium product, Cooler Master make sure you feel that when you unbox it, removing the top cover which has all the product details, you get a pure white box with two tabs to open it.
Under the top cover, we find all the main components on a foam mold and other items like the radiator, mounting brackets, fans and tubes on separate boxes. (Note: this is a review unit, so tubes and coolant are being used ago).
The Masterliquide Maker 240 kit includes CPU block, pump-reservoir combo, radiator, two Masterfan pro 120 RGB, 6x compression fitting, 3x fill port cap, 1.2-meter-long 3/8” tubing, 100mL coolant, 1-to-2 fan splitter x 1, 1-to-3 RGB splitter x 1 and wired RGB controller x 1 (which is missing from our review unite, but retail unite will have it).
The CPU block is full metal construction with standard G1/4 treading. Cooler Master used a solid copper base plate with microchannels. The water is pushed in the center, and it flows out on both sides, which Cooler Master is calling JET IMPINGEMENT COOLING (high-pressure liquid and directing the fluid to eliminate hot spots in the cooler).
The pump-reservoir combo features a top acrylic reservoir and a metal bottom housing the pump which is powered by a detachable 4-pin PWM fan connector, but it connects to the pump-reservoir with a proprietary connector so you cannot replace it with any other cable. The bottom pump housing has two G1/4 treading, one for in and one for out, the top of the reservoir has three G1/4 treading as well so you can decide how you want to connect tubing.
The radiator is full squared design looks great, the outer frame is made out of aluminum, but the inner channels are formed out of copper. The fin density is also decent, so overall the radiator is quite well made.
Now let’s look at the fittings, the compression fitting also made out of copper and G1/4 treading with 3/8″ inner dimension and 5/8″ outer dimension. The kit includes six of this compression fitting for soft tubing. There also three stop cap included.
The tubing provided is thick and should prevent any kink or sharp twist and make the tubing straight for the most part. The tubing is 1.2-meter-long and has the same 3/8” ID as the fittings.
