Good day everyone

 

I am fairly new to the overclocking scene and I need some advice on a new AIO Cooler please.

 

I currently have an Corsair H80i cooler installed, and must say it worked really well (apart from stock fans that were just a bit loud, and the Corsair Link software issues.)

But, it is a few years old will need replacement soon.

 

I have the Cooler Master Master Liquid ML240L RGB as replacement in mind.

 

I have been reading up and watching some reviews on Youtube, and the overall verdict seems to very good, and comes as highly recommend, but in the same breath more towards lower end builds from what i can gather.

 

My current CPU: Intel 3570K @ 4.5Ghz (Voltage: 1.1 - 1.2v)

 

Case: Phanteks P400S

 

Now i want to know will this Coolermaster AIO Cooler be sufficient for the job ? or must i rather spend a little more and get a Corsair model again.

 

PC mostly used for gaming.

 

Thanks for reading and in advance.

Welcome to OCC. 

 

I would stick with your Corsair H80i,.. over the Coolermaster ML240L RGB,.. I have an H80 bought it new in 2011, it's been running 24/7 on a workstation with no issues,.. so you should be fine for a few more years with your H80i. 

 

The ML240L RGB does not seem to do so well in the reviews performance wise,.. but if you are going for the RGB lights it does have that going for it,..  https://overclock3d....0l_rgb_review/7

Red454 / Chris reviewed the MasterLiquid 280 here on OCC http://www.overclock...liquidpro_280/?a while back. While its not the same, it does give an idea of build quality style of MasterLiquid coolers.

 

Edit:

ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L is highly recommend. It seems harder to get in the US but its a solid AIO cooler. http://www.overclock...frostflow_240l/
