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. Even with cooling, they were the first to hand me a TEC assisted air cooler, they were also the first to hand me a successful version of a vertical vapor chamber designed CPU cooler. Now as the market had sort of left them behind with every company and their mothers going to an Asetek or CoolIT AIO system, Cooler Master rolled with the punches for a while, then has succumbed to the desires and trends of today and are introducing their very own design of what an AIO water cooler should be.
With all the variations on the market today, along with about three pump revisions if I have my count right, you can really get lost in what brand and what style of radiator to use. While I was given a Corsair H100 a long time ago to test, it is no longer around for comparative testing, all we can go by today is how this unit fares against coolers that Thermaltake had released on the third gen pumps, and of course the various full custom water cooling solutions. I mean I fully expect this AIO to fall right in the middle of the two anyways, so if it does that, I think Cooler Master is well on their way to success with these new units.
As I searched around for a bit of the company's interpretation of this cooler I seemed to be coming up blank. It is very easy to find the product page for the smaller version, the Seidon 120M AIO, but today we are going to be testing the larger version of this AIO, the Seidon 240M from Cooler Master. Of course it isn't a huge stretch to get that the naming comes from the Greek deity Poseidon; God of the Sea.
With a name so engrained in minds as someone who could bring tidal waves and whirlpools on a whim, it seems that these units have a lot to live up to. I say we get right into things and see just how well the Seidon 240M handles this Intel 2600K processor.
