Cooler Master Intros 240 mm Glacer 240L Liquid CPU Cooler

Cooler Master has announced its Glacer 240L liquid CPU cooler, which seems to be the second All-in-One unit that can be taken apart and expanded. Its ability to do this isn't particularly surprising because the unit is essentially a Swiftech H220 unit with a couple of subtle differences which include, but are not restricted to, the pump speed, aesthetics, and fans.

After Asetek's lawyers had approached Swiftech earlier this year, Swiftech had voluntarily decided to withdraw its H220 liquid CPU cooler from the U.S. market in order to prevent any litigation. The unit still sells in other places around the globe.

The unit features the premium radiator, which carries a built-in reservoir. The CPU block serves as both a cold plate as well as a pump, and will spin up to speeds of 3500 RPM. It is powered by a SATA interface, but it seems that it is still PWM controllable. The unit's fans are Cooler Master's 120 mm Blademaster fans that can spin at speeds up to 2400 RPM, though you'd probably prefer to turn them down with their PWM control.

Like its inspiration, the Glacer 240L can be taken apart, and the loop can be expanded further. Without opening it, it is also maintenance free for a period of three years. It is compatible with all the latest CPU sockets, including AMD's AM3 socket and Intel's LGA1150 and LGA2011 sockets.

The unit has already been listed on Newegg.com for a price of $129.99.
