As I mentioned we installed the Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M in our Ryzen test system, which is comprised of the following hardware.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
Cooling: Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M
Motherboard: ASUS Prime X470-PRO
Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 3GB
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR4-3000 32GB
Storage: Gigabyte UD Pro 512GB
Power: Corsair RM850x
Chassis: PrimoChill Praxis WetBench
Since this is a new build for testing CPU coolers we do not have any other aftermarket CPU coolers, but we do have two AMD stock coolers to compare with, they include the:
– AMD Wraith Prism RGB
– AMD Wraith Spire
For performance testing we will first test idle temperatures. These are taken on the Windows 10 desktop and hour after the system has been turned on.
Moving on to load testing we will be running the AIDA64 system stability test with the CPU only checked. This puts a full load on our CPU. We run this test for 1 hour and record the highest temperature throughout the test.
As you can see the Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M takes the top spot our performing the AMD Wraith Prism RGB (which comes with the Ryzen 7 2700X), by 1.87 degrees. With that performance I wouldn’t say this cooler is worth replacing your AMD Wraith Prism RGB, but the lighting effects might make you change your mind on that.
So as far as the lighting goes this cooler has two RGB fans as well as an RGB strip that is built into the cooler itself. At these are not just normal RGB fans / strips that you set a certain color, the are addressable, meaning you can do some pretty cool effects. Before we get into that lets see what the fans look like all lit up.
As you can see the fan lighting is quite bright. If we look at the cooler from the top we can see it lights up as well. The window really look awesome when it is lit up!
You’ll also get some light showing through the “air guide armor” on the cooler.
The lighting is controlled via the included addressable RGB controller. With the controller you can set different effect, the speed of those effects, set a temperature mode where the lights react to the temperature of your CPU, or pass off the control to your motherboard software. Cooler Master has made a video showing off what this controller can do, check it out below.
