You have probably noticed there are a lot of AIO coolers on the market today. It seems like every other week a company is launching a new AIO unit, or a new company is bringing their first to market. Most of these units are built by watercooling systems manufacturer Asetek. Today we’re going to take a look at the Cooler Master Seidon 240M, this one is designed and built in house by Cooler Master…or is it? Follow along as we put this controversial cooler through it’s paces and find out what it can do.
– Factory filled with coolant, then sealed and pressure tested – requires zero maintenance for years.
– Waterblock made with UltraFine Micro Channel enlarge the contact surface between cold plate and coolant.
– Durable and powerful water pump – dissipates heat effectively and maintains temperatures through stable water circulation.
– Performance 240mm radiator is designed for handling high wattage overclocked CPU.
– Double 120mm PWM fan with a wide RPM range to fine tune and balance fan noise and performance.
The Sedion 240M comes packaged in a very typical looking CM box. The theme here is black/purple/chrome and as usual it’s very sharp and makes you feel that you are getting a product that is worth while. The front of the box gives us a look at the cooler and some features that CM feels are important.
The rear of the box has a comprehensive set of diagrams with all the pertinent measurements you will need to determine if this cooler will fit in your case. Also on the back side you will find the features and compatibility list. This cooler is compatible with all sockets from both AMD and Intel.
The final thing worth mentioning is the left side of the box which has the complete technical specs of the cooler and fans. Looking at the fans section, CM claims they have an excellent static pressure of 4.16 at their max speed of 2400 rpm. Both the high speed and high pressure are going to be welcome with this thin densely finned radiator.
Inside the box you will find the cooler and accessories in the standard egg carton style mold. This seems to be very adequate to protect the Seidon from possible damage while shipping.
