MSI MAG Coreliquid K360 CPU Cooler Review

Beside working as designed and giving best performance today’s PC hardware are also trending towards giving best asthenic experience to its users. It started with lighting up the inside of the PC case using Neon lights and then it changes to LED lights, to RGB and further you can get every PC component with some kind of addressable LED lighting inside.

Now this trend is slowly shifting towards adding small display into the components. We have small display on motherboards, GPU, PSU and now in AIO coolers too. Today we got the opportunity to review such a CPU cooling solutions from MSI, the MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 CPU cooler from MAG CORELIQUID Series product line.

Beside being a 360mm AIO CPU cooling solution, the MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 CPU cooler comes with a 2.4 inch fully customizable LDC screen alongside a powerful stack of features.

Now let’s see what this MSI MAG Coreliquid K360 AIO has for us.


MSI's exclusive TORX FAN 4.0 provides concentrated airflow to the radiator for the most rapid heat dissipation.

Inspired by teamwork, MSI’s exclusive TORX FAN 4.0 has two fan blades working as one with an outer ring design.

A 60mm TORX FAN 3.0 is placed within the water block to help dissipate heat for the M.2 SSD, CPU VRMs, and surrounding components for improved performance.

The MPG CORELIQUID K Series comes equipped with a 2.4” LCD capable of displaying a wide range of hardware system information and customizable graphics.

MPG CORELIQUID K Series’ tubing is constructed with three layers of netted plastic with a reinforced mesh exterior.

Everything ranging from MPG CORELIQUID K Series’ fan speed to the ARGB lighting to the LCD display can be adjusted through the MSI Center.

For testing thermal capability we manually overclocked Intel i9-9900K upto 5GHz and stressed the CPU using AIDA64 for 10 minutes. To average out we took three readings with 15 minutes of system idle time in between every reading. We compared MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 CPU cooler with few of known AIOs, Air coolers and a custom LC solution.

In our testing the MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 AIO offers decent performance, before the testing we were bit worried that the small fan over the pump-block combo would make noise on load, but the whole unit was very quiet throughout the testing.

I am very pleased with the MSI CORELIQUID App, very easy to use with great UI. Everything is very straight forward, with full control over the LDC Display, Fan Settings and ARGB lighting.

At a price tag of Rs.19k(approx.), the MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 AIO is little high at the pricing side, but you get more than just an AIO. Finally, if you’re looking for an AIO for your new build with very good performance and great asthenics the MSI MAG CORELIQUID K360 AIO is a great option and is worthy of our PC TeK Reviews EXCELLENCE Award.
