MSI has announced a recall of their MAG Coreliquid 240R and 360R. You can apply for an exchange if your unit is affected on their website, where you need to check your serial number. The issue appears to be reduced performance due to some sediment blocking the AIO. It is unclear what the cause is and how many units are affected. The press release can be found below.

Dear MSI users,

Recently, we have received feedback from some of our users that they have experienced a drop in heat dissipation efficiency when using the MAG CORELIQUID 240R / MAG CORELIQUID 360R liquid coolers.

Our preliminary investigation has identified that a small portion of the liquid coolers produce sediment that can cause a blockage. This, however, will not cause any damage to your system since the processors are equipped with a protection mechanism against overheating.

MSI cares deeply about our users’ overall experience and we simplified our processes to provide faster product replacement services.

Users can identify whether they have an affected products by looking up the product serial number here. We will provide a comprehensive product replacement (MAG CORELIQUID 240R V2 / 360R V2) service to all affected products that have abnormal heat dissipation

Moving forward, we will continue to work with our suppliers to thoroughly inspect all MAG CORELIQUID 240R / 360R liquid coolers that may potentially be affected. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local MSI Customer Service Center.

Example provided by MSI: CPU temperature is higher than 60°C while idle and the cooler is properly seated
