I love the way the MasterLiquid Pro looks, except the LED color, I'm sure there are lot's of people that like Blue but in my case I need either RGB or a Red color option, then I'll buy a MasterLiquid Pro 280. !!!!!!

I purchased a ML Pro 280 and have it running on an AMD FX 8350 Stock.  Temps at idle at around 45deg C and under gaming load, playing GTA V for 15 mins, temps went up to 66 Deg C and started getting frame rate drops as it hit thermal throttling.  These temps are much higher than my old Zalman CNPS 9500A air cooler that maxed out at 55deg under load.

 

Is there something wrong with my cooler? I was expecting MUCH lower temps with this.

 

CM Mastercase Pro 5 Case with 3x 140mm Intakes on Front, 1x 140mm Exhaust on rear and the 2x 140mm AP Fans on AIO mounted in the top of case in pull configuration set on Silent speed to minimise noise.  They sound like a tornado on anything higher, MUCH higher than the 6-30db specs that are listed for this product.

 

Also am unable to select any higher speed settings on the fans in Pull config as the frame that supports the centre hub of the fan flexes due to the suction through the radiator and allows the fan blades to hit the radiator frame.

 

Not a happy customer here..

Have already reinstalled this cooler twice. Also read the links. The pump apparently displays incorrectly in the bios and monitors. Apparently you have to divide the speed by 3 to get correct reading.  Been chatting with live supports. Apparently it looks like it's too much to ask if this cooler. My 7 yr old air cooler with a 92mm fan running at minimum speed had better temps that this thing. Not happy.

280 enough to handle your FX 8350 system .. 

 

Owner pro 5 chassis + 4690k and install it with masterliquid 240 on the top ... result i got is very very ( make me happy super silent ) idle 26c load 40-50c run as Full Speed .

And i believe if we build with correctly ( no problem ) can touch our system , unless what we have is faulty unit .

 

Bro you can check this user ( have asrock board ) might this help you ..

 

Hope this can help .

Dissapointed with masterliquid pro 280, i have a mastercase 5 maker and installed master liquid pro in the top portion of the case with with fans in push mod on top of the radiator, the problem is besides the fans are very loud in this mode i get a vibration so strong that affects even the desk where the pc is on and is very irritating. When i installed front mount radiator things got a 180º turn, the fans got so silenced that i have doubts that they were turned on and i got no vibration at all, problem is the i live in a very hot city in Brazil and front mount is not best suited.

 

Sorry for any english errors and typos.
