Perfect For Quiet Systems
The MSI MAG CoreLiquid E360 will not impress overclockers, as the temperatures at 100% fan speed do not impress. The MAG CoreLiquid E360 cannot keep up with the other coolers that The FPS Review tested it against. That is not to say it failed to keep their i9-13900K within safe temperatures, merely that if you are looking to maximize your cooler with no regards to sound then this is not the cooler for you.
On the other hand, if you are looking to build a quiet system then you should definitely take a look at this cooler. Of all the coolers tested only the MSI MAG CoreLiquid E360 was capable of keeping a 250W thermal load below 100C at 600 RPM fans. The cooler might be loud at full fan speed, but as you reduce the speed the sound becomes almost inaudible at 35.8dBA.
We will again be using our second-generation AIO test platform that is capable of putting out enough heat to make even the devil sweat. We do this to test AIO liquid cooling solutions that are likely to be used with some of today’s most demanding CPUs.
