The includes fans are on quieter side of AIOs we’ve tested.
The CPU pump block measures 53mm in height and around 43mm with cap removed, making it a solid choice for ITX cases. The pump top cover is customisable with your own 3D-printed creations. This is very cool feature, but we feel few will be able to take advantage, due to no / limited access to 3D printing.
While we tried to explore Cooler Master’s MasterCTRL software. Sadly, the v1.0 public software release wouldn’t launch on either of our AM5 system.
Testing is carried out on BC1 (open testbench), using the following hardware, in 20°C ambient room temperature. We noise normalised the fan speeds to 35dB(A) at distance of 50cm. This helps eliminate brute force cooling from higher RPM fans.

|Performance||Unnecessary extras that push up AIO pricing, including customisable pump block, ARGB & MasterCTRL hub.|
|Pump height (53mm), roughly 43mm with cap removed.||Only available with RGB.|
|4pin PWM controlled pump.||Fan splitter is low quality and very stiff. It feels out of place vs. other cables.|
|Quiet pump, even at full speed.|
