Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML240L RGB Cooler

The head unit used on the ML240L RGB is a tad irregular from what we see everyone else doing. It is round and sleek looking at the top, has a CM logo that is backlit, but we do see the mounting brackets, which are part of the head unit, and requires other bits be mounted to it.

The fittings on the side swivel, and the tubing and the sleeve are retained by heat-shrink tube. Near one of the fittings is a small hole in the plastic cover, where two leads come out of it. One is a four wire lead for the 4-pin PWM fan connector to power it, while the other is a three wire lead, which is used for RGB control of the backlight.

We removed a plastic sticker that protects the base of the cooler so that we could get a better look at the cold plate. The copper plate is machined straight across the surface, it is flat, but the edges do curve from the pressure of the screws. Speaking of the screws, six of them use a triangle shaped driver to remove them, but two of the screws cannot be removed once installed.

Moving from the head unit, down along the tubing, we find twelve inches of it on the ML240L RGB. The heat-shrink tube is used at this end to keep the tubing and sleeve on the fittings, and the leads from the head unit are roughly ten inches long.

The radiator is all we expect to see with an AIO. It has screw holes on both sides, one header is thicker than the other, and the FPI count is quite high.
