A Closer Look
Now that we have the cooler unboxed, we get our first look at the ML240P Mirage. The Mirage sports a mainly black finish with just a splash of purple on the pump.
On both long sides of the radiator is a white Cooler Master logo stamped in the center.
Pulling out the calipers, we can see that the fin density of the ML240P is approximately 19 fins per inch. This is on par with the ML360R that we measured at 18 fins per inch.
Moving to the pump is where the ML240P really stands out from other AIO’s. The pump has a mostly transparent top with only the outline of Cooler Master’s logo etched on it. This transparent cover allows you to get a view of the AIO fluid as well as a purple impeller.
The side of the pump is mostly black with some dark grey accents giving this a propeller type look. Connected to the pump top are 2 rotary fittings, which allows you to better position your tubing within your case.
The cold plate is completely made from copper and is attached to the ML240P via 10 screws. Like most CPU coolers, there is also a protective film keeping it pristine prior to installation.
Different from other AIO’s, we have worked with the center portion of the ML240Ps cold plate slightly raised up from the rest.
The FEP tubing used in the MP240P is extremely flexible and very easily manipulated which should aid when installing the cooler. The tube itself is covered with black sleeving giving it a nice premium look.
Taking a closer look at the included fans, the blades themselves are connected via a plastic ring. This is exclusive to the ML240P Mirage and helps reduce fan distortion and improves fan rotation stability. The fan itself is housed in a black square frame which also includes vibration dampeners on each corner.
Flipping the fan to its back reveals it has a low RPM of 650 with a max RPM and is rated for 12V/0.3A.
