Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX AIO Review

This is a review of the Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX AIO, an all-in-one liquid cooler that offers RGB lighting and excellent performance. It’s priced at $129.99 USD in the US or £139.90 GBP which puts it on par with other similar coolers like the Corsair Hydro Series H100i Pro (see links below). For this price point, you get plenty of features including support for 240mm radiators and full RGB LED control over your pump speed, fan speeds, and light settings along with water cooling compatibility to ensure your system stays as cool as possible no matter what happens on screen

Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX AIO Review



For the last thirty years, Cooler Master has been assisting gamers in mastering their cooling. Air coolers, liquid coolers, computer cases, power supplies, and other PC components are all manufactured by them and marketed all over the globe.

Cooler Master gave us one of their new MASTERLIQUID PL360 FLUX AIO coolers, which is part of the “PRO” family of MASTERLIQUID coolers (which also includes the “MAKER” and “LITE” designations). The 240mm radiator on the other FLUX level AIO varies from the 360mm radiator on the PL360. It costs $189.99 at the moment.

We’ll be employing our AIO test platform once again, which can generate enough heat to make even the devil sweat. This allows us to put AIO liquid cooling systems to the test with some of today’s most demanding CPUs.

Overview of the Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX

The MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX from Cooler Master is an all-in-one (AIO) CPU cooler that supports a broad range of sockets. Intel’s LGA 115x/1200/1366/1700/2011/2066 and AMD’s AM2/AM3/AM4/FM1/FM2/TR4 are among them. This group includes the majority of today’s high-end desktop CPUs. This AIO comes with a 5-year guarantee from Cooler Master.

While we’re looking at the 360mm radiator version right now, this AIO is also available with a 240mm radiator and two 120mm fans. Expect it to perform somewhat worse than the 360mm version we’re looking at today due to thermodynamic laws, but it should still put up similar numbers (at least, until the overclocking starts).


  • Pump with Dual Chambers of Superior Quality
  • Performance Ratio that has been fine-tuned
  • Superior Heat Transfer
  • Radiator with a Low Profile
  • Flux Series Fan has been redesigned.
  • ARGB Pump with Dual Loops

Water Block & Pump


The Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FLUX’s water block measures 89x75x40mm, making it one of the biggest components we’ve seen. To be honest, considering the increasing size of CPUs that we’ve witnessed lately with the introduction of Alder Lake, this is a positive thing.

The pump is PWM-controlled, with a speed of around 9000RPM (+/-) at 100% duty cycle and an MTTF of more than 210,000 hours. Cooler Master does not provide RPM specifications for its pump, although we saw 9000 RPM during testing. It transports water to and from the radiator through a 400mm cooling pipe.

Cooler Master uses a dual-chamber pump that, according to the company, is more compact while providing the ideal amount of flow to pressure for outstanding cooling performance. It has a copper cold plate and a ceramic bearing impeller. The expanded copper base that they’re using to boost heat transmission is definitely noticeable.



The liquid CPU cooler radiator is 394x120x27mm and can accommodate three 120mm fans. The aluminum radiator has 22 fins per inch density and is linked to 400mm of tubing, according to our calculations.

Three of Cooler Master’s new PL-FLUX fans are supplied, which are touted to deliver better performance than its Sickleflow fans. Loop dynamic bearings are used in the PL-FLUX fans. These fans have a specified fan speed of 0 to 2300 RPM and a recorded noise level of 32 dB. (A). With a static pressure of 2.96 mm/H20, the maximum airflow is 72.37 CFM.
