Cooler Master Seidon 240M CPU Cooler Review
26 June 2013
Summary: The Cooler Master Seidon 240M can be called a top shelf liquid cooling system. It performed almost as well as the best watercoolers we have tested to date. It is also easy to install and relatively affordable.
The main problem with the Seidon 240M is that its fans are very loud at full speed, but that is a problem it shares with its competitors.

Conclusion: The Seidon 240M is a solid entry into the already highly saturated AIO liquid cooler market and it a strong first step from Cooler Master, especially given that the pump is made in-house and not an OEM rebrand. The wide variety of accessories that they provide, leaves the competition far far behind, and we haven’t even gotten to the performance aspect of things.

Cooler Master Seidon 240M and 12 More Coolers: The Retest and Mega-Roundup
26 April 2013
Conclusion: Before I get into specific recommendations, it's worth taking a few moments to talk about the three new coolers that were tested today: the Cooler Master Seidon 240M, the Noctua NH-U12S, and the Noctua NH-U14S. First, while the Swiftech H220 may be the best 240mm closed loop cooler available, it also commands a healthy premium over the competition.
Summary: We like the Seidon 240M, this kit can be compared with the more niche heatpipe based coolers. The big plus of course is the extremely cool looks inside your PC and the very low noise levels.
Realistically the Seadon 240M shows good cooling performance, and sufficient performance with more extreme tweaks. The dual 120mm radiator makes a difference, cooling capacity is definitely good enough for even an overclock.

Conclusion: Cooler Master’s Seidon 240M costs approximately £89 right now in the UK but prices should start dropping off as more UK stock arrives. Even at current pricing £89 makes it cheaper than the ELC 240 with which it offers identical performance, around 10% cheaper than the Corsair H100i, which it offers about 10% less performance than, which costs around £95+ from most retailers and cheaper than the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme which costs around £110-120.
Cooler Master Seidon 240M Water Cooling System Review
27 March 2013
Writing this review I couldn’t help but keep coming back to and thinking about the
legal issues surrounding this cooler
. And for whatever reason that caused me to have low expectations of it. Even before I pulled it out of it’s lovely box I had already made up my mind that it couldn’t be anything special and to be frank, I was blown away and shocked by how well it performed.
Pros: Price is perfect, best bang for your buck, Great performance, Packaging/kit is top notch, Blue LED lights to indicate pump is running
Cons: Fans are loud, Not a very clean install, Blue LED lights whenever pump is running
Summary: The Cooler Master Seidon 240M is the best self-contained, CPU water cooling unit we've tested, primarily because it addresses our biggest complaint about such coolers: Pump noise. The previous integrated liquid coolers we've examined from Corsair and Antec suffered from lousy sounding pumps that had a heavy buzz and rattle, even gurgling on occasion, making them unfit for any true silent PC enthusiast.
Excerpt: Cooler Master has made it this long in the aftermarket PC parts game because of one major thing, and that is the ability to adapt to what is new in the rest of the world. What I mean to say is that if you look back at what they started with as something like the Cosmos 2 in cases, they have definitely learned a trick or two.
Conclusion: My experience with the Seidon was a mixed bag. On one hand, I loved the performance and the installation was quick and easy. But with everything up and running our pump was a little too noisy for our taste. We do our testing on an open air test bench so the noise is exaggerated, an enclosed case would be much better but still not perfect. I’m still excited about the Seidon simply because it’s not the same old design from the main OEM’s that we typically see.
