Cooler Master MasterAir MA620M CPU Cooler Review

Installation

Getting the MasterAir MA620M installed is much easier than previous Cooler Master CPU coolers. We will be installing in our X470 test bench so our installation process will be for the AM4 socket. You first want to fully remove the AMD stock socket mount and backplate. Then go ahead and install Cooler Master’s backplate. The included backplate works for both AMD and Intel sockets, you want to make sure for AM4 the text “AMD” is facing you when installing the backplate.

With the backplate installed on the backside of your motherboard go ahead and install the AMD mounting bars. Cooler Master uses thumbscrews for this, which makes installing pretty easy.

Now install the included thermal paste on your CPU and very carefully place the cooler on top of your CPU lining up the screws on each side of the cooling with the holes in the mounting bars. With everything lined up screw in each side. This definitely has to be one of the easiest installation of a Cooler Master CPU cooler in recent memory!

With the cooler installed the last thing you are going to want to do is connect the fan to the CPU fan header on your motherboard and connect the RGB elements to either your motherboard or to the supplied controller. Cooler Master includes cables to connect to all major motherboards, but we decided to use the controller. Simply connect the 3-pin RGB cable to the extension cable which plugs into the controller. Finally connect the controller to power and you are good to go.

When you power on your system you’ll notice the RGB LEDs on the cooler light up. I really like what Cooler Master has done with the RGB lighting. It looks sleek and stylish, but not too much in your face.
