Cooler Master’s All-in-One’s Seidon 120M looks simple and neat but how good is it?
A small waterblock, neatly connected to the radiator unit.
Nice copper finish at the base for optimum heat absorption.
It comes with easy to install kit (AMD system backplate not in the picture, sorry).
Here’s the AIO WC unit running on my system.

Test Setup / Benchmarks
The computer setup used for this review.
|Processor||Intel Core i5-4670K @ 4.3Ghz, 1.25 vcore|
|RAM||Avexir Core Series 8GB DDR3 1600|
|Power Supply||Xigmatek NRP-PC602 600w|
|Operating System||Windows 8 Pro 64bit|
Below is the CPU-Z for the processor, on overlock.
Temperature was monitored using HW Monitor. Room temperature is around 25Â°C.
CPU load was done by converting 10bit MKV video to 8bit using x264, set to -veryslow mode.
|Idle (Â°C)||Load (Â°C)|
|CM Seidon 120M||35||61|
|Ice Blade Pro||30||61|
The results were good, however the Seidon’s was noisy just to maintain the temperature at 61Â°C
Retailing at RM 279 (approx 90 USD), that’s more than 2x the price of the DeepCool Ice Blade Pro v2.0.
In can be a bit noisy but you could always change the fan but the beauty of the Seidon is the simple and compact nature, and it’s very easy to install. It’s very unlike large sized air coolers, a small and neat AIO cooler that fits almost all casing types and doesn’t cost too much.
