Default CM Seidon for 775?

Yeah, old architecture and why upgrade to this but I was looking for a used H50 or similar but having no luck.

I was wondering if anyone can provide some feedback on the Seidon series which seems to be the only choice available now? But, There's a V, M and XL and I have no idea why so many or how to differentiate. If I just get a basic one, is it the M? It looks like the cheapest.

I don't want to spend much as I hope to buy a laptop eventually (my next $$ investment in a computer, I plan on it being an ultrabook or similar) so I hope to keep this desktop a bit longer.

Any advice or info on these or any liquid coolers that can fit an Antec 300 case and 775?

Ha, no one is interested in discussing 775 hardware, eh? ;) I guess there's no cheap way to upgrade. Ugh.

Or no one really had the answers.
At this point in the game I wouldn't worry about getting a AIO if you've got something existing cooling it.
That or just grab a cheap cheap downdraft to get you by (heck I got a TT one if you need a cooler).

775 is far enough behind now that there really isn't a good suggestion. Sorry mate,

There's some reviews about the CM Seidon 120M working with lga775 and even one reviewer uses the same case as mine. What would I have to take apart? MB has to be taken out?

I have that setup on my htpc and it runs great but the stock fan makes way too much noise. max temps 57 deg on an overclocked 8400 at 4ghz
