Default Cooler Master Seidon 240M CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread

Cooler Master's Seidon 240M is a closed loop water cooler which uses a dual 120mm design and is supposed to compete against the likes of Corsair's Hydro series and NZXT's new Kraken units. It does so by using a custom design and a price that significantly undercuts similar products.

Impressive read, have been seeing this cooler all over the net from builders due to its scifi look. a little disappointed in it due to sound factor and the fact it is a little loud but wow its comes with some nice accessories compared to the rest of the AIO guys and the build looks good quality.

More importantly its ability to be mounted on to 775 systems does put the Seidon 240M at a distinct advantage over both CoolIT and Asetek’s latest generation which usually lacks Socket 775 support.
This.

Those idle temps are really impressive. I'm not sure what the ambient inside my case are (I have that 7970 blowing hot air in there as well) but the Q9550 idle temps for me are 40c @3.8Ghz with my OCZ 6 pipe air cooler. Mind you the Scythe fan I have blowing air through the cooler is ultra quiet. 800 rpm iirc.

My load temps are around 64c on the hottest core. I want to take this CPU to 4.2Ghz. But I don't think my quiet air cooler would really be up to the task. It really is disappointing that the Kraken won't support S775. But at least I still have this as an option.

Good read and thanks for the review!

Why is it,that Antec coolers are never used as a comparison to Corsair? Most reviewers of liquid coolers, compare cooler "A" with coolers B, C etc. etc.,but very seldom do I see the Antec series compared. In my opinion,Antec has the best and most quiet liquid coolers available today.

Antec use Asetek for their OEM. The only difference is the fans they include. ;)

Exactally.
It only really pertains when there is a paradim shift in pump/head design or Rad.

Will there be a Swiftech review incoming? If I upgrade my H80i, it will probably be to one of those...

I like the modular idea. If I want to add a GPU block and another rad, I can, then I have the beginnings of a Custom loop, instead of spending all that money all at once to buy a pump, reservoir, cpu block, rad, hoses, etc. I love being able to spend a small amount of money at one time, with a bigger picture in mind. It's how I do all my upgrades... I haven't spent a lump sum on an entire rig since 2005.
