Cooler Master MASTERAIR MA410P CPU Cooler
From the front of the MA410P, our memory goes right back to the Pro 4 CPU cooler. The main difference in the view is that now there are clear fan blades, and the hub is clear as well. The Fan covers the majority of the fins, and we see not only the 4-pin PWM connection but also a 4-pin RGB connection to address the lighting.
The side view affords us a look at all of the fifty-seven fins, and the one on the top of the stack is black, not left in its natural state. We can also spot the plastic clips for the fan, which wrap around the cooler, and clip onto a ledge on the sides of all of the fins. As for the heat pipes, they are left with the copper exposed, and they are spaced tightly together to run through the stack of fins.
As we see the back of the MA410P, we can tell that there is a pair of heat pipes, two that run nearer the middle, and another pair which is outside of them. It should help to distribute the heat to the fins more efficiently, and at the bottom of the cooler, we see gentle bends in the pipes, as not to limit the wicking effect they are designed for.
Our last view of the tower at this distance sows off the universal shape of the tower, without any offset. This aids in the fact that you can add a second fan to the back of the tower, which should improve performance a few degrees, but also will not conflict with memory any more than the front of the cooler.
The top fin of the tower, as we mentioned, is black to help with the aesthetic appeal, and the center of the fin has the Cooler Master logo embossed on it. Where we see the pipes exiting the top of the tower, we also see an X-pattern around them, which is there to scoop air towards the pipe, then upon exit, spread the air as to take the most advantage of airflow to the next pipe in line.
With the fan removed from the tower, we can see the effort Cooler Master puts into the fin design. The leading edges are offset from the next one in line to disturb the air more, and we also see hills and valleys, which allows the fan to build more pressure before sending its airflow over the heat pipes.
The bottom of the fins stack shows where the copper heat pipes enter the tower. We can also see that the fins are pressed onto the pipes, as well as the lack of the logo on any of the plain aluminum fins.
The aluminum base of this tower serves two purposes. This is where the mounting hardware locks the cooler to the motherboard with the pin and hole, which is where the universal bracket installs. The second function of the aluminum base is to lock the copper pipes into place.
There are two things we like about the base design. If you are going to offer a direct touch cooler, we do not like wide gaps between the pipes, nor do we care for larger separations with aluminum spacers. Cooler Master aligns the pipes, mills them flat with minimal gaps between them, and allows the pipes to take all of the heat, and distribute it properly into the stack of fins.
