This is a preliminary review of the Coolermaster Glacer 240L self contained liquid cooling system. The Glacer 240L is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution built around a 240mm copper heat exchanger equipped with twin 120mm fans. The large heat exchanger is intended for top-mounting in full sized gaming cases. A 420mm length of 3/8" internal diameter PVC tubing connects the integrated pump/waterblock to the radiator. The waterblock uses a skived copper base plate and incorporates a pump capable of 165L/hr, at 2.65 meters head. Coolermaster's Glacer 240L installs onto Intel socket LGA775/115x/1366/2011 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 processors. Retail price is about $140 USD / CDN. Please see coolermaster.com for the full spec sheet.
NOTE: In an effort to keep up with the increasing pace of heatsink releases and provide a timely reference to our readers, Frostytech has decided to release its heatsink test results in a preliminary review format as soon as the data is compiled. Contained within this preliminary article are the complete set of test results charts for Frostytech's 125Watt AMD, 150W & 85W Intel LGA115x/775 and 200W Intel LGA2011 synthetic thermal test platforms, acoustic measurements and a 360° pictorial overview of the thermal solution. This preliminary look at the Coolermaster Glacer 240L will be updated to the complete review at a later date.
Base Finish and Flatness
The Coolermaster Glacer 240L is compatible with Intel socket LGA2011/1366/115x/775 and AMD socket FM2/FM1/AM2/AM3 processors. The cooler ships with a universal motherboard bracket and a pair of metal mounting brackets that attach to the pump head to facilitate each particular socket.
This heatsink will be tested on FrostyTech's Intel and AMD version of the Mk.II synthetic thermal temperature test platform, and compared against hundreds of reference Intel and AMD heatsinks. The whole test methodology is outlined in detail here if you'd like to know what equipment is used, and the parameters under which the tests are conducted.
