The Frag Harder Disco Lights are back, Cooler Master's ML240 RGB lets you have a party in your parts. In the package you get 4 pin RGB extension cable, a 3 pin RGB extension cable, a 3-way 3 pin RGB splitter, four 3 pin and one 4 pin RGB connectors, which connect to the physical ARGB Controller. The buttons give you total control over the speed and patterns of your RGBs, and you can use the ARGB Lighting Control Software to program your own preferred display.
Confusingly, the package [H]ard|OCP received also contained some sort of radiator, with a round plate connected by two hoses ... you can see what they did with those in this article.
"Cooler Master's claim to fame with the ML240R RGB is, you guessed it, "THE MOST COLORFUL WAY TO COOL." Its Master Liquid series has recently gotten high praise from us when it comes to keeping your CPU cool using an All-In-One cooler. Cooler Master has taken its successful model and adorned it with lots of Frag Harder Disco Lights."

Cooler Master have started out their announcements at CES with several coolers and a fair sized allotment of case models. First up is an aircooler designed for SFF systems, the MasterAir G100M and its horizontally mounted fan.
The entire cooler stands 46.3mm tall, perfect for slim cases and still manages to cool processors of up to 130W TDP. It does of course bear RGBs for those who like a warm glow from their coolers.
For those who want a bit more lighting options for water or air cooling, the new MasterLiquid ML240 SMART and MasterAir MA410M are the ones you want to pick up. Not only do you get 16.7 million colours of RGB but you can use the SMART temperature detection feature to have your colours change accordingly.
The MasterCase H500M and 500P share similar capabilities, windowed sides and a pair of 200mm RGB fans at the front for airflow and aesthetics, a PSU shroud, cable covering accessories and support for radiators up to 360mm. To differentiate them, the H500M offers more connectivity at the front, a Type-C USB, four USB 3.0 ports and two 3.5mm jacks while the H500P is for more stylish designs and offers you the ability to mount your GPU vertically.
The MasterBox Q300P and Q300L offer some mobility for those who move their systems on a regular schedule. The I/O panel you see on the side can be placed in six different locations and the case itself is happy sideways or upside down, depending on your preference. The four carrying handles you see are removable if you so desire.
The MasterBox MB500 and TD500L offer a somewhat different look on the front and with a little work you can have your RGBs offer different highlights depending on the view angle of the system. These are also large enough to offer six 120mm fans or their equivalent in radiators, GPUs of up to 407mm will fit in the case and there is 19mm of space between the motherboard tray and side panel to give you enough space to get creative.
There are also updates to the MasterCase MC-Series which come with the M-Port for extra options in your design as well as the Trooper SE and Stryker SE line ups which we may see more of over the week.

Introduction, Specifications, and First Impressions
Cooler Master has introduced a pair of new all-in-one liquid CPU cooler designs, with the former Nepton series now replaced by the MasterLiquid Pro 120 and 240. It is the larger of these that we have for you today, and in this review we'll see just how well this new design performs.
“Based on our expertise in thermal technology, we reengineered how liquid absorbs and expels heat throughout the all-in-one (AIO) closed loop of the cooler. Our holistic approach to the flow puts in your hands a comprehensive cooling machine that lasts longer, performs better and requires virtually no maintenance.”
The MasterLiquid Pro 240 uses what Cooler Master is calling “FlowOp Technology”; a series of design choices that are intended to improve all aspects of the cooler's efficiency. It begins with the pump, which “sprays liquid directly at the center of the water block”, and the block, which offers what Cooler Master claims to be 657% more surface area (thanks to many more “ultra-fine fins on the copper base”) and 40% greater performance compared to previous designs.
The radiator features a square fin design, which the company claims “creates greater surface area for absorption of the heat and allows for spacious airflow”.
These claims, along with a pair of Cooler Master’s new “MasterFan Pro Air Balance” fans, make this new design sound very powerful, and I couldn’t wait to get it on the testbench to find out just how powerful - and quiet - it might be.
