About the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB

The MasterLiquid 360L Core ARGB is a new all-in-one water cooler in the MasterLiquid series. It comes with a new Gen S dual chamber pump, a redesigned radiator that is larger in size. In addition, it has ARGB 120mm fans and comes with CryoFuze thermal paste.

Let's take a look at the accessories that come with it, and we'll get what we need to be able to mount on the most common Intel and AMD systems. An adapter is included to connect the three fans to the radiator, as well as cables from the ARGB connection, thermal paste, and a manual.

The Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB comes with three 120mm ARGB fans. They have been optimized to provide high performance. They can run up to 1750 rpm and, with the help of the BIOS, you can use the PWM function to adjust the speed according to the temperature. They have an air pressure of 1.86mm/H2O and a CFM of 71.93.

The pump head is equipped with copper at the base, in order to provide the best cooling possible and has been boosted with water flow and pressure to improve cooling and performance.

The Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB comes with different brackets depending on if it is for Intel or AMD. It requires a quick look or knowledge to know which parts to use. However, it is an easy and flexible system where the brackets are screwed onto the pump head, and then it can be assembled with the accompanying accessories.

Testing - Usage and Performance

Test System

  • MSI MEG Z690 Unify
  • Intel I7 12900K
  • MSI Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti
  • 32 GB HyperX Fury DDR5 5200 MHz CL36
  • Samsung 970 EVO 500 GB SSD

Test Software

  • Cinebench (Benchmarking)
  • HWinfo64 (Monitoring)


The test is set up so that we first warm up the system with Cinebench for 5 minutes. Then it runs for another 10 minutes where we measure the average temperature in HWiNFO64. We then subtract the room temperature at the given time to get the delta temperature in order to give as neutral a picture as possible. The fans are set to run at full speed so we get a picture of the maximum cooling performance with the load we are giving it. This should give a realistic picture of how much strain can be put on the different coolers, and whether they can take more or less than what we give them.

After doing some research on the Intel Core i9 12900K and its heat generation, I have decided to turn off Hyper-Threading in order to give the cooler a chance to show what it can do, rather than the CPU pushing it to its maximum. All future tests will be run this way.

Room Temperature: ~ 26 degrees

Fan Speed: ~ 1750 RPM

We start the test by setting the system up in idle. This results in a 2 degree delta temperature. It's a good start, even though this is not where we can see how well the cooler actually performs.

Moving on to the most decisive part of the test, we have had the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB running and it has ended with a result of 46 degrees in delta temperature. This is a great result, actually being the best among the ones tested so far.

It has not been possible to find a price for the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB, but I have been informed of an MSRP USD 119.85. If you would like a smaller model, the Masterliquid 240L Core ARGB can be acquired for USD 95.88 in MSRP.

It is time to round off the test of the Cooler Master Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB. Cooler Master has not managed to stand out from the crowd with revolutionary technology. But they have still managed to improve a few things that have borne fruit when we look at the result. For the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB, it comes with a really nice result and ends up being the cooler that achieves the lowest temperature of the tested models.

In addition to this great result, it is also a water cooling that comes with a beautiful design, combining the classic and sleek style with RGB. The colors are beautiful and it harmonizes incredibly well if you are of course into that kind of thing.

The installation is easy and straightforward. Of course, it requires that you familiarize yourself with how much of the accompanying material should be used.

It can quickly become a lot of wires when connecting both the fans, pump, and ARGB. But the combination of adapters to tie it all together, so that all inputs on the motherboard are not used up, works really well and makes it easy to tie it all together.

Taking the price into consideration, it lies on the good side of 1000 Danish Kroner, where we have often seen 360mm coolers on the other side of 1000 Danish Kroner. This makes the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB have an attractive price, especially with its performance.

At the current exchange rate of 0.15 USD per Danish Kroner, the price of the Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB is approximately 150 USD.

Although we achieved a great result, it comes with a small caveat, as the noise was correspondingly high, and it's like hearing turbines running at full pressure when they blow out 100%. But it again shows that they move a lot of air and cool the water down.

I end up giving the Cooler Master Masterliquid 360L Core ARGB a score of 9 out of 10, along with great product. The performance is high for a good price. The only thing that might turn people away is the noise at 100%. But it is still rare scenarios where it runs at such high speed.


  • Easy to assemble
  • Attractive design and RGB
  • Price 
  • Performance


  • Noise Level

Score: 9+ Great Product
