MSI MPG Coreliquid K360 AIO Liquid Cooler Review: Asserting Dominance

MSi MPG Coreliquid K360

When it comes to PC building, the cooling system is one of the most important aspects to consider. Overheating can cause a lot of problems, including system instability, reduced performance, and even damage to your components.

That’s why it’s crucial to invest in a high-quality cooling solution that can keep your system running smoothly. MSI has sent us the MPG Coreliquid K360 for review, which features a triple fan radiator, and a large 2.4 inch LCD screen.

The main draw of the MSI MPG Coreliquid K360 is the 2.4 inch LCD screen on the pump. It can display system information and can be customised to display other image or text of your choice. The LCD panel has a detachable “cage” that latches onto the screen using magnets.

Furthermore, the pump has an additional fan that can spin at around 2,800 RPM to improve temperatures. Combined with the LCD screen, the pump is much larger than other AIO liquid coolers.

The radiator is quite thick as well, coming at 27mm. It comes with three 120mm dual ball bearing fans that also have addressable RGB. The fan themselves have rubberized contact points to reduce vibrations.

Installation can be a bit cumbersome for some, as all the fan and ARGB connectors have to be connected to the pump block, before connecting it to the motherboard headers. This could lead to some degree of frustration when it comes to cable management.

It is powered by SATA too, so there is an additional power cable that you need to manage. Other than that, the installation process is rather straightforward.

Thermal Performance

I’ve tested the Coreliquid K360 on two separate processors, the Intel i7-13700KF and AMD Ryzen 9 7900. The Ryzen 9 build managed to stay around 70°C with Precision Boost Overdrive turned on.

However, on the Intel side, the i7-13700KF build drew about 350W of power if thermal limits were unlocked, causing the liquid cooler to struggle to cool it down. This is more of Intel’s fault rather than MSI’s. Your best option when it comes to Intel CPUs is to lock the thermal limit to about 300W as that seems to be the TDP limit during my testing.


By default, MSI has tuned the fan profile to be quite aggressive, with very audible fan speeds starting at 60°C. I adjusted it to be a bit quieter, and the volume is still audible, but acceptable. You do sacrifice a bit of thermal performance though.


Using MSI Center, you can customise how the MPG Coreliquid K360 looks. Both the fans and the LCD panel can be customised to your liking, especially the LCD panel, where you can choose between images and texts in order to make your PC look more unique.

Final Thoughts

MSI MPG Coreliquid K360 AIO Liquid Cooler Review: Asserting Dominance 14

While the installation process can feel a bit frustrating with the amount of cables needed, the MSI MPG Coreliquid K360 has the aggressive aesthetics that gamers would want in their PC.

Priced at RM1,149, it certainly does not come cheap. However, it packs decent performance, a large dominating LCD panel and has loads of customisation options, so you do get what you pay for.
