Conclusion and overall impression …
We like the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L V2 RGB very well and it provides a lot of water cooling for a 120mm AIO at a fair price.
Once again we were very happy that Cooler Master consistently maintained improvements. There are, for example, the simple but very practical RGB fuses or the fan screws with thread in the head, which enormously simplify an otherwise very annoying radiator assembly.
At first we were a bit skeptical about the RGB lighting … without aRGB you won’t be able to get anyone in front of the stove in 2020, and the included cable controller usually only cover the bare essentials. But the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L V2 RGB AIO also knows how to please in it’s own way.
All in all, it is a completely successful package that Cooler Master has put together here. If you can only use a 120mm AIO due to lack of space, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L V2 RGB is a good solution.
Tip: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide you can virtually fit coolers onto different motherboards and listen to many – the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L V2 RGB will be included in the next update.
For a comparison with other coolers, take a look at our CPU cooler chart II on the Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU cooler chart, tested on an AMD AM4 PC system. Here is also the CPU cooler chart 2016 on the Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU-cooler comparison 2016, tested on an Intel Core i7 PC. And here is the previous CPU cooler chart with CPU cooler 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.
