These are the major non-Amazon retailers with online stores. You will get an idea as to what is readily available here if you browse through their catalog. Sorry for the trouble :S

Seeing the options, best would be to buy 212 and add RGB fan. Best alternative which is probably close to CM is https://www.mdcomputers.in/cooling-system/jonsbo-cr-201-black-rgb.html

Bit cheaper, but CM is overpriced in US too. With Corsair cheapest AIO worth anything is H80i. You could go with H60 if you don't mind noise and lack of performance compared to air coolers at the same price range.

Hi everyone!

 

I'm looking to swap out my stock AMD wraith spire cooler with an aftermarket cooler. I've shortlisted two, the Cooler Master MasterAir MA610P and the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L RGB. I am curious about overclocking (I've never attempted it before) and I know that if I overclock, I'll have to deal with increased temperatures. Could someone please help me make a decision on which cooler to buy? And yes, I am sort of doing a Brand themed build with cooler master (which is also the most easily available brand in my country) so suggestions within the cooler master catalog would be preferable.

 

My rig has

Proccessor: AMD R5 1600

Mobo: Asus Prime B350M-A

RAM: Crucial 8GB 2400 Mhz

 

Thanks in Advance xD


My Rig:

 

AMD R5 1600; Asus Prime B350M-A, 2x8GB Corsair Vengance LPX DDR4 2400Mhz RAM, Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6G, Cooler Master Masterwatt Lite 500W PSU, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB Sata SSD, WD Blue 1TB (steam library), WD Blue 4TB (Miscellaneous Storage), 2xCooler Master Air Balance RGB case fans, 1 NZXT Hue+ for case Lighting, all within a Cooler Master Masterbox 5 White Edition Chassis.

Neither. Both are junk for the price. If you really want RGB, get another cooler and put a RGB fan onto it.

MasterLiquid ML120L RGB

seems to be rather leaky.  I recommend getting an H7 (quad lumi if you need rgb) or dark rock pro 4 when it comes out


Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

Cryorig and Dark Rock products aren't available and they are extremely expensive due to customs and local taxes. Any recommendations from corsair?

Amazon India. Or a bunch of local retailers. India isn't really a big market for PC hardware.

Seeing the options, best would be to buy 212 and add RGB fan. Best alternative which is probably close to CM is https://www.mdcomputers.in/cooling-system/jonsbo-cr-201-black-rgb.html

Bit cheaper, but CM is overpriced in US too. With Corsair cheapest AIO worth anything is H80i. You could go with H60 if you don't mind noise and lack of performance compared to air coolers at the same price range.
