CoolerMaster Seidon 240V AIO Watercooling Review

CoolerMaster Seidon 240V Review


Having moved to the new CPU cooler test rig and completed the conventional tower cooler Mega test, we’re actually in the process of bringing together as many AIOs as we can for the mother of all AIO mega tests.  Problem is, the Seidon 240V from CoolerMaster just can’t wait that long so we’ve decided to test it as a one off on the new rig (well that was the original plan at any rate).  Granted it’s going to be hard to determine for sure where it sits in performance terms, but rest assured we’ll be putting it back through it’s paces when we do the rest of the AIOs.  So what of the Seidon 240V then?  Well as you might guess from the name and the picture above, it’s a 240mm rad based AIO.  At just 27mm thick without the fans and 52mm thick with them mounted it’s also pretty thin and so should fit into a good many cases.  The figure that’s catching our eye though is the quoted 27dB(A) of noise from the fans at 2400RPM.  If those figures are to be believed, the Seidon should be both effective and quiet.  For the rest of the detail let’s take a look at the Technical Specification
