H80i v2 vs Masterliquid Pro 120

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys im looking for the best 120mm aio water cooling system for my com.

I was initially going to get the corsair h80i v2 but then I saw the masterliquid pro 120.

The marketing stuff is awesome and all but I have yet to see a reputable site benchmark it. Maybe you guys can help me with this?

Thanks.

Not a lot of reviews on the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 120 AIO, however it sits somewhere between the top air coolers and that is where I suspect the Corsair H80i v2 will sit also.

So I guess it would come down to price and warranty.

Thanks for the link.

I did some relative comparisons based off relative performance. And it seems that the corsair h80i v2 does 2-3 degrees better than the masterliquid 120. The masterliquid pro might be quieter though.

Now the question is which one has a better radiator . Say if I swapped corsair's fans and cooler master's fans, would the corsair still end up cooler than the masterliquid pro?

The h80i v2 has a 49mm thick radiator, the master liquid 120 is 38mm thick. At mid to high rpm, the corsair should be the better radiator. At lower rpm, it may suffer from air restriction and provide worse temperatures.

What cpu are you looking to cool, and will it be overclocked?

I have used a thick 120 aio for a few years time, and I honestly feel that you can get better performance with less noise for less money with a top tier air cooler.

I had my Antec killer 920 on my 3570k, and was able to sustain a 4.5ghz overclock with cougar fans. I could run up to 4.7 for short runs, but water temps would rise above my comfort zone for extended use at those speeds.

It is now used on my locked 4690 on my htpc, primarily due to space constraints of the case above the socket.

My opinion is that if you are looking for a cooler to overclock with, I would look at a 240 aio minimum, or go with a top tier air cooler.

Does this cooler support threadripper socket?
