Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360L Core ARGB White Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Final Thoughts

In closing, I am happy to say that I was much more impressed by the MasterLiquid 360L Core ARGB White’s performance than I was expecting. The thinner tubing, semi-blemished copper block, and reduced pressure specifications of the included fans did not look good from a quick glance. It turns out that this combination of components and their specifications is enough to get the job done, and do it well. The idle temperatures of the 360L Core compete with what I would consider to be more premium coolers, and the same can be said with regards to the load temperatures as well.

With regards to the aesthetics of this cooler, I think the white version that we reviewed looks pretty good. The ARGB lighting on the pump housing and the three fans does stand out with the white components compared to the other AIOs that I have reviewed in the past with black hardware, but this is definitely a cooler that has been toned down with regards to the design – think Chevrolet Cavalier, not Chevrolet Corvette. The lack of a lighting controller or any software makes for an underwhelming experience, as many customers expect these types of inclusions in today’s PC market. That being said, the price point for this AIO certainly makes up for the lack of their inclusion. Installation was as easy as ever, especially when you factor in the multiple uses of thumbscrews during the install process.
