Result and general impression …
With the Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux AIO, Cooler Master has once again put together an great AIO water cooler with really excellent fans that will keep you cool even in summer temperatures.
The overall package is really coherent across all disciplines. Beyond that, one is also happy about cleverly solved little things like the fan screws with an additional thread in the screw head.
The accessories are also beyond reproach. The Cooler Master Liquid Cooler is out of the box AMD AM5 compatible. If the Socket 1700 mounting material is missing, it can be reordered here for free.
It is a bit pity that the Flux fans are not available separately, at least not yet. We hope that Cooler Master will follow suit and you will be able to equip your entire system with the same fans if you want to.
From our side, there is nothing against it
Tip: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide, you can virtually try on the CPU coolers on the motherboard and for the most part even listen to them – the Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux will be included in the next update.
For a comparison on the different coolers, it’s worth taking a look at our CPU cooler comparison, tested on AMD AM4 and Intel LGA1200 systems, the CPU cooler chart 2018 on an Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU cooler comparison 2018, tested on an AMD AM4 PC system. Here’s still the CPU cooler chart 2016 on Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU cooler comparison 2016, tested on an Intel Core i7 PC system. And there is also the CPU cooler chart with CPU coolers before 2016. However, a direct comparison to our previously tested coolers is not possible since the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime.
