    Default Cooler Master Announces the MasterLiquid Maker 92 CPU Cooler

    Cooler Master, a leader in design and manufacturing computer components and peripherals, today launched an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler that doesn't look like a liquid cooler. According to Cooler Master, it skirts the divide between liquid and air cooling by combining properties from both. Let's get one thing straight - it is an all-in-one (AIO) closed loop liquid cooler. Mostly. What Cooler Master has done is shrink it down by combining the radiator and pump into a single frame. This frame and two dual fans are attached to a swiveling mechanism that allows you to quickly swap between vertical or horizontal mounting configurations. This versatility gives this unusual cooler a number of unique functions for smaller PCs and air flow set ups.

    If the pump is in the swivel base of the radiator, then it could be a good solution. If it's in the heat exchanger part (the one in direct contact with the CPU), then it offers nothing new save for compactness of sorts.
    The pump needs to be as far away from the heat source as possible for optimal service lifetime.

    All in all an interesting prospect, but given traditional AIO watercooling systems' performance, I wonder if it can stand against the top-end air coolers (Noctua, Thermalright, Prolimatech, BeQuiet!, etc.)

    Also I really hate CM's latest naming scheme.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    WOW! Such epic mediocrity. How'd it even manage to score an 8/10?

    It's honestly not that bad and definitely has some appeal. The real problem is the price.

    No. It's not "that bad". But where does this product fit in where any other closed loop cooler with a remote located radiator would be less clunky, cool better and cost less.

    And then there's an issue with the testing methodology. While I can see the merit of reviewing this unit against a gamut of air coolers because this cooler doesn't work with a radiator that's going to evacuate heat directly out of a case, the mix of air and liquid coolers in the comparison is a mess of arbitrary numbers because the testing is done on an open bench which actually makes this cooler seem BETTER than it actually would be in 99% of user's cases because 99% of users are NOT using an open bench. That certainly doesn't bode well for this cooler by comparison.
