Packaging and Contents
The Seidon 120M is presented in a predominantly black box but does of course sport the well known Cooler Master Purple panels. The rear of the box gives the usual specs and features with the front being given over in the main to a nice arty shot of the cold plate with the rad in the back ground.
Opening the box we find that Cooler Master like many other manufacturers are moving away from vast chunks of polystyrene in favour of more Eco friendly reconstituted cardboard. The layout is similar to that of the Corsair H60, however Cooler Master have allowed much more room between the various contents and as such the box is bigger and a lot less cramped. Each of the items comes sealed into its own zip lock plastic bag, and each sits in its own compartment. Cooler Master provide fittings for pretty much all current CPUs from both Intel and AMD, with socket 2011 fittings being included in their own little bag to avoid any confusion. A small syringe of Cooler Master TIM is also included in the box, although as always we shall be using our Noctua TIM.
The instructions for the Seidon 120M are similar to those included with other Cooler Master products and it has to be said aren't as clear as those we see with other manufacturers. A small strip of images down the left side of the sheet which folds out to the size of a small duvet cover are accompanied by columns of written instructions in just about every language you can think of (excluding Welsh). Those with aging or tired eyes will find them selves having to squint quite hard to see what's going on in the pictures.
