Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux Liquid CPU Cooler Review

It has been a while since we look at our last all-in-one liquid cooler here at ThinkComputers, but the last time we did, it was a Cooler Master unit. Well, we have another AIO in for review, and this one is also from Cooler Master, the MasterLiquid PL360 Flux. As the name suggests, this AIO features a 360mm radiator, paired up with Cooler Master’s new PL Flux fans, which have been redesigned to provide better pressure for moving air through the radiator fins. With plenty of RGB goodness and Cooler Master quality on deck, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this cooler.

Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing the MasterLiquid PL360 Flux review sample!

In standard Cooler Master fashion, the PL360 Flux is housed in a rectangular cardboard box featuring a product image and naming information on the top/front. This design gives potential buyers a good idea of what is to be expected visually from the cooler, and also highlights a few of the cooler’s features like ARGB lighting and various compatibilities, as well as the inclusion of an ARGB controller.

The sides of the box offer additional feature information, as well as a detailed table of specifications, while the backside provides some additional feature information in multiple languages.
