Cooler Master Glacer 240L AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Did you miss out on the H220? Cooler Master works with Swiftech and drops the Glacer 240L, bringing back an AIO with mod-ability.

Fresh out of the box, the Glacer 240L is ready to go for most Intel applications without doing a thing. Of course, you can add things and mod this loop to fit your needs, but it is tested, sealed, and ready to go if you wish to use it as-is.

The head unit gets a thick plastic top and has two grooves, one on either side of the engraved CoolerMaster logo. The center section is left simply textured, as we would find most plastic, but the sides are made to look like brushed metal for a bit of stylish trimming.

The Intel hardware is all pre-attached to the head unit, but we will cover that more in the accessories section. We see a newer design with the bottom of the block being open, and as you move back, you find the swivel fitting that is screwed into the head unit. The tubing also has a removable clamp on it for modification.

On what will be the top of the head unit if you have the logo reading correctly, there are two groups of wires that come from the middle section, and they are what supplies power to the pump and provide PWM functionality.

At the other end of these leads, you find a dual wire 4-pin fan connection (which will allow for PWM control via most motherboards), and a SATA power plug to deliver a solid 12V to the system. I would also like to say: thank you for not using a 4-pin Molex plug.

Getting back to the head unit, we flipped it over to look at the base. Here, we not only find a protective layer of plastic, but also a quality control sticker showing that it was tested, and is functional.
