Conclusion and overall impression …
We like the Cooler Master MasterAir MA610P very much. The high compatibility with the various CPU sockets, the outstanding cooling performance and the great look including the clever RGB controller solution convinced us.
Only in the highest speed range the fan is quite loud. However, the cooling performance only increases so minimally that this area should best be considered only at the top end of the fan control config. Or if you are reaching for new records of the OC limit, because for overclockers this cooler is also excellent :ocinside:
We consider the price of the offered package very reasonable.
Tip: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide you can virtually fit coolers onto different motherboards and listen to many – the Cooler Master MA610P will be included in the next update.
For a comparison with other coolers, take a look at our CPU cooler chart 2016 on the Intel Core i5 PC. Here is our CPU cooler comparison 2016, tested on an Intel Core i7 PC system. And here is again our CPU cooler chart with CPU coolers before 2016. A direct comparison to our previously tested coolers is however not possible here, since the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime.
