it works. if you got RGB headers on motherboard, you don't need the control unit(pic 3)
under the product page and size the rad should corrected to 27mm thick FRAME but the Rad itself is roughly 10mm thick. Also had to lap the surface of the cold-plate(scroll up and look at pic 2) due to the brushed surface it wasn't making ideal contact with CPU, the brushing is deeper than it looks in pic2 and ended up taking some plastic too. Mounting it to am4 wasn't pleasant 1st time. noisy pump
they lied about rad thickness, it not 27mm thick but the frame is. end user should not have to pay $150+tax and fix it on their own time(if that inclined). i was able to file my nails down with the coldplate b4 i fixed it

240mm rad. RGB and Fan splitters are convenient for cable management.
MASSIVE Weakness: The copper plate that contacts the CPU IHS has the worst machining I’ve ever found for a CPU cooler. It looks rough and feels rougher. You can slide your finger nails through the grooves. Honestly... I’m tempted to make my own part and replace the copper plate. An amateur machinist could make a plate that is smoother and therefore makes better contact. Frankly, it’s embarrassing that this is sold like this. Memory Express should take a look a products like this and consider having the manufacturer fix it before stocking.
Terrible contact with IHS = less cooling than it should get for the price and type of cooler. You’re better off buying a cheaper AIO or Air cooler.

Does its primary job well- it has pretty good cooling performance as it is a 240mm radiator
included aRGB controller is complete garbage, i could not even get mine to turn the led's on and had to resort to a different controller Included fans are low quality, they make a fairly high amount of noise and can rattle at specific rpms. the included cabling for them and the controller is also a nightmare to deal with Included instructions will tell you basically nothing other than how to mount the thing inside. You're better off looking up a youtube video on how to get the controller setup -- if it even works.
You're better off looking at something non Cooler Master- the pump lights are nice and work well enough but the fans and controller are awful. however it does get points for a doing its job

Cheaper than other colorful AIO products w/ 2 fans and 240mm radiator Fun to look at
Cheap feeling connectors and fan controller Copper contact base prone to scratches, and doesn't seat the best Fan mounting screws not the best
Have an i3-8300K idling around 30C. On load it sits from the high 60s to mid 70s with 1.35V applied for 4.8Ghz. Add more volts and you'll find yourself in the 80s; 90s if you get to 1.4V. The fan controller feels very cheap and the inside pins are very easy to bend. By making this AIO compatible with so many sockets, the copper base is way too big for some CPUs; it does not seat the best, resulting in inconsistent core temperatures. Installation is also awkward with how the tubing is set up. It is difficult to hold down both the radiator and pump & water block piece still during installation. The fans do have cool lighting effects so I give this product credit for that; for something similarly colorful you're looking to spend $200+. Overall does what it's supposed to for a competitive price, and is fun to watch.

Issue with the pump housing of the cooler. The housing will hit the the four capacitors on the left side of the CPU socket with this specific motherboard. I believe they tried to cover too many processors with one product, as the contact point is massive, ergo the casing may not have the clearance needed for your motherboard.
