The Cooler Master MasterLiquid 280 has the same custom pump that made the MasterLiquid 240 so unique.
One of the biggest decisions when starting a new build is how to cool your CPU. Many people choose to go with air cooling because they think liquid is too expensive, or too risky. Many go with a simple AIO, or All in One cooler. I’ve heard people say that all in ones are god, but a 240 mm AIO doesn’t give them enough of a performance increase. To them I’d say Cooler Master had got you covered. With the launch of the Master Liquid 240, Cooler Master had completely designed their pump and reservoir combo, with welcomed results. Now, with the Master Liquid 280, the have again implemented that same concept on to a 280mm All in One cooler. I’d like to thank Cooler Master for providing ProClockers with their product for our earlier Master Liquid 240 review. Now let’s see if the 280-mm cooler performs that much better than its 240 mm counterpart.
