Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360 Atmos AIO Review

The Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360 Atmos is one of the best AIOs I tested so far, being able to cope easily even with the i9-13900K power beast, with PL1 and PL2 set at 250W, which lead to >350W real CPU power. 

The Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360 Atmos is a prominent AIO, promising high performance and low noise output. It is not usual to find an AIO with a five-year warranty, but in this case, CM didn’t have a problem providing it since the fans are rated at 160,000 hours (mean time to failure), and the pump is even more reliable at 210,000 hours.


This AIO uses a dual chamber pump designed and manufactured by Cooler Master. The cooler is also compatible with CM’s MasterCTRL software, which I didn’t bother installing during testing since I controlled its pump through Fan Control. I used a Corsair Commander for the fans, which I use in every fan or cooler review since I hacked it and integrated it into my fully automated cooling test suite.

  1. So it basically decimated everything in noise to performance? How much of this do you think is due to the fans? They look very interesting with how fast 3 of them are managing to spin at given noise targets, especially through a radiator that tends to amplify noise. Regardless almost definitely the new best argb 120mm fans. Any chance you could try testing them alone, just for curiosity sake?

    1. The fans play a significant role in the increased performance because they have notably higher speeds at given noise levels than the competition. I have several other reviews to finish, so I don’t believe I will find time to try these fans in other AIOs.
