Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The specifications chart for the Glacer 240L provided by Cooler Master has what I like to see: full disclosure of the entire kit. Things start off with the RL-G24L-24PK-R1 model number of this unit, and then they dive right into the radiator. Here, they cover the 269mm long, 127mm wide, and 29mm thick dimensions, explain that it has a G1/4 fill port, and that it is made of mostly copper, but also has some components made of brass. The fans used to cool this radiator are quite capable of delivering some good results. Each of the Blademaster 120mm fans will spin near 2400RPM, delivering 86.15CFM of airflow. The noise level of a rated 40 dBA is a bit high, but so is the static pressure, with an amazing rating of 4.16 mmH2O.
Moving on, we see the pump in the head unit is capable of speeds from 1200 to 3500 RPM, but has no way to monitor this. While it shows a 4-pin fan connection, and a SATA power connection, the 4-pin connector only offers power and ground; no sense wire for RPM. The pump draws 12V at full power, and sips only 13W while running during its 60,000 hour lifespan. This pump is capable of moving 165 liters of water per hour, and offers almost nine feet of head pressure, so even the tallest of cases won't be an issue with this kit. To connect the head unit to the radiator, there is black PVC tubing with a 5/8" O.D. and an I.D. of 3/8", and both tubes are 420mm from block to radiator.
Finding the Glacer 240L is really easy, just hop over to any of your favorite e-tailers, and you will find it listed. Cooler Master set the MSRP of this cooler at $139.99 when it was released, and it seems both Newegg and Amazon are playing ball and keeping that pricing. Amazon is offering free shipping for Prime members, but Newegg is also charging less than $7 to ship it.
For $140, this is not only a great deal, but is the only current offering keeping the mod-able AIO dream alive for those inside of the United States. It only takes a trip to a water cooling shop to price out the components, for even the most hardened water coolers out there to realize that this is a great deal, and an excellent choice at this price. Now, all that is left really is to test the Glacer 240L, and see just what it brings to the table.
