InWin’s MR Series liquid coolers shift the pump from CPU block to radiator

Innovative pump location.

InWin MR series AIO liquid coolers

InWin has announced the MR Series AIO liquid coolers featuring an unusual pump design and improved ARGB fans.

The MR series will be offered in two sizes, a 240mm MR24 and a 360mm MR36. The former is 277mm long cooled by two 120mm fans, with the latter sitting at 397mm using three 120mm fans. In both instances, the radiator is 27mm thick made of aluminium, boasting high-density fins which allow for efficient heat dissipation thanks to an improved heat exchange area.

To cool these radiators, InWin went with its Neptune AN120 fans delivering 60.1 CFM of airflow and 2.27mm/H2O of air pressure.

The CPU block, which interestingly doesn’t include a pump, houses micro-channel fins said to further improve efficiency by drawing heat away from even the hottest processors, all while featuring a rotatable ARGB cover allowing for repositioning of the brand’s logo without removing the block. Moreover, it’s RGB illumination in addition to that of the Neptune fans is compatible with Asus’ Aura Sync, ASRock’s Polychrome Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, and MSI’s Mystic Light Sync for a system-wide effect.

Now onto the key point of differentiation. To separate itself from the competition, InWin opted for a pump integrated into the radiator itself. This approach delivers lower noise levels according to InWin. However, we do wonder if it may also cause bubbles to settle inside the pump if it ends up being the highest part of the loop, thus causing rattle/noise. Positioning can be important on these AIOs, so we’re intrigued to see real-world results.

The MR series is compatible with Intel’s LGA 1700/1200/20xx/1151/115x plus AMD’s AM5/AM4/AMx/FMx sockets, supplemented with a tool-free design to keep installation as simple as possible.

Backed by a three-year warranty, the MR24 240mm and MR36 360mm AIO liquid coolers are available for €119.99 and €144.99, respectively.
