Cooler Master Seidon 120XL – Push-Pull CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and 2 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet (when provided with the steady 12 volts)
Less expensive than a full water-cooling system
Relatively easy to mount
Keeps my CPU cool (37C, on average)

Cons: Considering the pump acts up if it doesn't get the steady 12v, it should have come with a molex adapter. I had to buy one online.
I knew about this before I bought it, but what I didn't see was the reviews warning about how easy it is to strip the screw holes. I lost two the first day, not from carelessness, but just from mounting and removing the fan repeatedly while trying to eliminate the rattle.
Since I got the rebate with it, I no longer have the UPC, and I'm betting Newegg won't take it back. Even if they did, I don't like the idea of my computer being dead for a month.
So now I need to find some sort of solution. Perhaps the hardware store has some small nuts I can solder into the worn-out mounting holes.

Other Thoughts: Given that it's cheaper than a full-on liquid-cooling system, and it keeps my CPU relatively cool, I'd say it's mostly worth the money.
However, with the problems I've had, and seeing the problems other people have had, I don't think it's worth $90. $70 is acceptable. I just wish the rebate process hadn't taken three months.
