Cooler Master MasterAir MA624 Stealth, This Cooler Is More Than A Mouthful
Two Sickleflow 140mm Fans And One Sickleflow 120mm Included
This Cooler Master MasterAir MA624 model is called the Stealth as it lacks any RGBs and the features a black aluminium top hat to help it blend in with the rest of your system. Cooler Master chose to do something rather nice with this cooler, shipping three fans even though this is a dual fan cooler. The reason behind that is to accommodate those with tall RAM, by giving them a 12mm option to give more clearance; not that it will help of you buy the DDR4 to DDR5 adapter featured on the latest podcast and here.
The FPS Review tested this cooler using a a Ryzen 7 2700X set to all core frequencies of 3.7GHz as well as with them all set to 4.1GHz with PBO disabled and the MasterAir MA624 does not disappoint. It not only tops the charts for cooling performance, it is the only cooler they’ve tested capable of keeping an overclocked 2700X at minimum fan speeds, in this case 600 RPM. Impressively it also maintains it’s performance lead in the sound pressure tests, staying below 41 dB(A) even running full out.
If there are any downsides, the price is not one either as the MSRP of $100 is par for the course. The size could be a problem for some, at 144.9 X 153.2 X 160mm (5.7 X 6 X 6.3″) there are some cases it simply won’t fit in. Check out the full results.
