Cooler Master preparing Seidon 120M liquid CPU cooler
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Cooler Master have been dabbling with the idea of selling closed loop liquid CPU coolers for well over a year. Now their finally nearing the market launch of their “Seidon 120M” liquid CPU coolers. We aren’t sure how different these will be to everything else on the market since the vast majority of liquid CPU coolers are made by Asetek or CoolIT and then rebadged by the retailing companies. Corsair, Antec, AMD, Intel and many more companies use rebranded closed loop liquid CPU coolers and market them as their own.
Cooler Master’s Seidon 120M uses a a 150.3 x 118 x 27 mm aluminum fin radiator with a copper micro-channel block. The tubing is dubbed as flexible plastic, but sometimes the plastic tubing tends to be a lot harder and less flexible than rubber tubing – so lets hope for Cooler Master’s sake that it is actually flexible.
The included 120mm fan operates between 600 to 2400RPM offering up 19 to 40 dBA of noise output although we aren’t sure about CFM ratings. The pump is supposed to be no louder than 17 dBA.
Socket compatibility is AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2, FM2/FM1, LGA1155/1156, LGA2011, LGA1366, and LGA775. Pricing and availability are not known yet, but expect them within a couple of months at prices competitive with the similar offerings from Corsair, Enermax, Antec and others.
