MSI MEG Coreliquid S360 CPU Cooler Review
Earlier we reviewed MSI MPG CORELIQUID K360 CPU cooler which is a 360mm AIO CPU cooling solution with ARGB Fans and a 2.4 inch fully customizable LDC screen.
Today we are reviewing similar CPU cooling solutions from MSI, the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 CPU cooler from MEG CORELIQUID Series product line. The “S” here stands for silence. MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 CPU cooler is designed to provide silence cooling with no RGB lightings.
Beside being a 360mm AIO CPU cooling solution, the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 CPU cooler comes equipped with MSI's innovative MEG SILENT GALE P12 silent gaming fans alongside a 2.4 inch fully customizable IPS screen.
Now let’s see what this MSI MEG Coreliquid S360 AIO has for us.
NEXT-GEN AMD SOCKET AM5 SUPPORT
AMD Socket AM5 (LGA 1718) is the next-generation socket designed to support next-generation AMD Ryzen™ 7000 desktop processors (Zen 4). AMD Socket AM5 uses the same liquid cooler bracket as Socket AM4*. This allows you to upgrade to and enjoy AM5 without buying a new liquid cooler.
MSI’s MEG SILENT GALE P12 provides sufficient airflow to the radiator for cooling while maintaining low noise levels.
MEG SILENT GALE P12
The MEG SILENT GALE P12 is MSI’s innovative silent fan designed to generate the most silent airflow.

To average out we took three readings with 15 minutes of system idle time in between every reading. We compared MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 CPU cooler with few of known AIOs, Air coolers and a custom LC solution.

In our testing the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 AIO offers decent performance, and the whole unit was very quiet throughout the testing.
I am very pleased with the MSI CORELIQUID App, very easy to use with great UI. Everything is very straight forward, with full control over the IPS Display and Fan Settings.
At a price tag of Rs.21k(approx.), the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 AIO is little high at the pricing side, but you get a very high performance and very silent CPU cooler making the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 worthy of our PC TeK Reviews EXCELLENCE Award.
