With the newest members of the popular MasterAir series, Cooler Master wants to offer a cooler for elegant systems, which should also impress with high cooling performance. In the following review you will find out if the project was successful:
Packaging and scope of delivery
The exterior joins the already known design of the manufacturer, here the large black surfaces fit particularly well, of course. The classic product image on the front is complemented by an exploded view with brief descriptions on the back, the pages with the typical purple then provide information on the technical specifications.
To ensure that the cooler arrives safely in one piece, it is protected with two plastic shells. Included in the box is a separate box for the accessories, instructions and warranty information.
The accessory box then unnecessarily bags everything again individually, which could have been saved. Apart from 4-pin PWM Y-cable and thermal compound, only various small parts for assembly are included.
Assembly and installation
Also for this cooler one relies again on an own backplate for Intel and AMD sockets. Four small threads are fixed in the backplate with plastic clips and pushed through the mainboard from behind. The spacers are then screwed onto the front, which in turn have the two brackets placed on them and screwed tight. Fortunately, Cooler Master also shows us the process in video form:
Even if the installation has been simplified a bit compared to the Hyper 212 Black Edition, other manufacturers manage the whole thing with less small parts.
Enclosed is an overview of the technical details, for everything else it’s worth taking a look at the newly designed manufacturer’s website.
