The All in One Liquid Cooling kit market is getting saturated fast, mostly these kits have Asetek as the ODM as they apparantly patented maybe even a little too much, however Cooler Master recently updated their Seidon series with a slightly different approach yet offering the very same principles and ideas.
Cooler Master basically announced new Seidon models to the liquid cooling market; the Seidon 120XL and the Seidon 240M will be the most common ones. Seidon 120XL and 240M are designed from the ground up to be small solutions which are accessible and affordable for most of you guys.
The Seidon series liquid coolers have a performance waterblock that is machined out of a single block of copper with special Micro Channels that maximize heat dissipation. The integrated pump / waterblock combo assists in saving valuable space around the CPU socket while providing performance and reliability that is similar to air-based CPU coolers. Operating between 600 and 2400RPM, the included 120mm PWM fan(s) ensures that there will be plenty of options for balancing performance versus noise levels.
The Seidon 240M are self-contained units and don't require that much setup installation and usage wise. The pump and radiator ship pressure tested, pre-filled, and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. This ease of use extends to its support of the latest Intel and AMD sockets; including the latest Intel LGA 2011 and AMD FM2 sockets.
In today's review we'll be examining the Seidon 240M; armed with two 120mm fans and a 240mm radiator it is one of the more easy to install products we have tested to date. However, as stated the market is fierce and competitive, will the Seidon 240M be able to hold ground against the new grub from NZXT and Corsair?
Well, let's find out, but have a look at what's tested today first.
