Up Close 

The Seidon 240V comes in a predominantly black and white box, which looks to be the epitome of understated class.  Inside it's the usual egg box cardboard which as already shown has been proven to protect items well, while at the same time helping to save the planet.

Inside, along with the AIO itself, you get all the fittings you need, including separate mounts and a universal back-plate for a whole host of Intel and AMD CPUs.

The 240mm rad is actually 273mm long and 27mm thick, and pays more than a passing resemblance to the radiator on the Akasa A20 that we're going to look at later.  We guess they use the same OEM, which is no big deal to be honest.

The rad has a fin count of 20 FPI and has 12 water channels, all of which are about average for a rad of this type and size.  The rad was well presented and had suffered no damage during manufacturing or shipping.

Unlike the Akasa which has rubber hoses the Seidon 240V has the slightly more rigid corrugated type.  They still bend well enough though so it's not really an issue.

The cold head is pretty monolithic and unimpressive, especially having just come from looking at the MasterLiquid series of AIOs, but hey, the Seidon costs considerably less so we can't complain too much.

The copper contact plate is a good size, and should cope with even the largest CPU lids.  The rest of the assembly is solid enough, but does look and feel more than a little plasticy.

Matching kit is always nice, so we're especially pleased to see the Seidon 240v inside the CoolerMaster MasterCase5 that we use for testing these days.  Needless to say it went in without so much as a hint of a hitch, but then you'd expect it to wouldn't you.

Ok, so the 240v has blue LED illumination to the top of the pump assembly, but to be honest it's so feeble it might have been better if CoolerMaster hadn't bothered.

Amazing amount of in depth analysis and explanation fellows, as always, thank you for not only presenting detailed and thorough information but explaining the points you make and why certain aspects/elements are more effective.

Great to see Cryorig putting up great figures. Seems like all of their offerings are at least solid, if not phenomenal, especially for the value.Quote
