MSI’s focus on providing quality cooling solutions continues with an innovative lineup of water coolers – the MAG Core Liquid Series. Showcased at CES 2020 for the very first time, these liquid coolers look incredible, work silently, and cool efficiently. The complete package indeed.


With support for a variety of Intel and AMD sockets, the MAG Core Liquid Series can cool even the most demanding of processors with ease. The lineup features both 240mm and 360mm radiator options to allow both gamers and professionals to choose according to the cooling performance and case compatibility they need.


The radiators are crafted using finely-engineered aluminum fins for maximum heat dissipation. While a 360mm radiator will provide a much better cooling experience even for the most powerful CPUs in the market, the 240mm radiator is perfect for those considering a more compact PC build that can’t house a bigger radiator.


The liquid coolers are designed to stand out with incredible ARGB lighting, which can be controlled using MSI’s Mystic Light sync – making it easier to set effects for your entire system and have them synced up to create an elegant aesthetic. In addition to being equipped with MSI’s intelligent ARGB controller, the cooler also features a new design with an improved 8 water channels. This expands the surface area and accelerates heat dissipation by moving cold water channels to the center instead of using a side-by-side design.

Installation and cable management are now easier than ever with the 270-degree rotating water-cooling head design. So, you have much-needed flexibility with regards to installing the radiator and managing the cabling around it, unlike traditional AIO water coolers.

The PWM fans intelligently adjust their speeds according to the temperature, allowing for completely silent operation. Moreover, they boast a peak noise of just 40.9dBA, ensuring that your system won’t be noisy even when your system is under full load, and fans are spinning at 100%. We’ve made sure that even the pump noise is minimum as well, peaking at only 18dBA.

MSI’s MAG Core Liquid series is built to last! It’s equipped with a pump that uses reliable ceramic bearings, rated for 1000,000 hours of operation. Unlike other AIO liquid coolers in the market, the motor has been moved to the water-cooled row to eliminate damage and noise caused by the vibration on the motherboard and CPU.
