Reviews and Problems with Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Showing 1-10 of 98
Worked great for a few months
11 February 2015
Summary: Worked great for about 5 months, it did keep my temps down to about 12C when idle (AMD FX-8320 OC'd to 4.2GHz) and 40C under HEAVY load, then suddenly the radiator pump went out. No longer cooling anything, my computer would overheat and automatically shut down.
Summary: It is pretty quiet if connected properly but my first connect was wrong and it made this liquid CPU cooler very noisy. Once I got it connected properly it runs reasonably quiet and it lowered the CPU temp by about 25 degrees.
Seidon 120M will have you under siege and not in a good way!

Summary: Where to start? First off if you plug the device into the "cpu" or "cpu opt" slot of the motherboard you will start to hear the pump making weird clicking noises. It almost sounds like the first moment when you first boot up a computer you hear a subtle "click" (which is probably normal) but in this...
I can't believe how much I paid for a piece of ....

Summary: GARBAGE. Just took this thing out of the box. The pictures don't match the parts list and the instructions are next to nothing. There is a part in a picture for AM3+ that doesn't even exist in the parts nor did it come with my new motherboard.
The performance of this cooler depends on you BIOS.

Summary: Thankfully, my Asus Z971-Plus automatically utilized this cooler to keep my CPU at a temperature under 40 Celsius (I'm Canadian). This is the first water based cooler I ever used, and I am impressed and considering getting a water block for my GPU. These devices are great at cooling!!
Summary: After a year or so, the fan in mine developed an annoying rattle. Apparently, the bearings in it are cheap. Aside from that, the instructions are moderately easy-to-follow, and it fits quite well on an Intel or AMD series CPU.
Buyers Beware - Possibly good ONLY IF you can install it...!

Summary: Rude surprises - a lot of them before I realized there is no way for me to complete the installation. Here are some of the things you need to know even before you buy this product (let alone go through the installation steps): 1.
Difficult installation and questionable compatibility with older rigs.

Summary: I would give an additional star, possibly 2 if I was installing this in a newer computer. I had four problems with the installation, one of which would not be an issue with a newer computer. The instructions were pretty bad.
Summary: I had to push very hard to install this baby, I thought my motherboard could break but finally I was able to mount it over the cpu. The instructions are incorrect, you need to connect the pump to a 3pin power provider and the fan connector to the 4pin cpu power.
Summary: My stock heatsink was having some trouble cooling my CPU in it's Mini ITX home. Temperatures would reach 90C - 95C pretty quickly when trying to export a video from Premiere or Adobe Media Encoder. I'd heard about liquid cooling but didn't know what a huge difference it could make.
