Cooler Master Seidon

Recommended Posts

I bought a Cooler Master Seidon liquid cooling product for my PC build. My i7 4770k tends to run at 90 deg C during games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. And being afk it can run anywhere between 55 and 70 deg C. Is there something wrong with the liquid cooling? Is there any way I can fix it? I just need some advice.

Here is the product.

Hi there

 

Here is My System :

  1. 1 x CPU Fan Header
  2. 2 x System Fan Headers

FYI i have an seidon 120v with dual jetflo check this link : http://community.coo...-with-dual-fan/

 

you can check this one also : http://community.coo...0v-temp-issues/

 

what i do is ,the fans i put into SYSTEN FAN HEADER and the pump i put into CPU FAN HEADER 

 

So My Suggestion pls Reinstall your Seidon and make sure your installation and pluged is correct most important is Setting Bios :) and try see how much the diffrence.

 

note* don't tighten the screw or bolt too much

 

hope this help you :)

That's the thing, my CPU isn't even overclocked. But I'm going to try changing things in the BIOS, wiring, and screw tightness. Thanks for the replies, and I'll check back soon.

I fixed it! It had nothing to do with any of those things. When screwing down the cooling block I used the wrong screw, causing it to not push against the CPU enough to cool it down. But thanks anyway guys! It was not product error, but my inability to follow directions, lol.

ImJenkins, what do u mean by used the wrong screw causing it noy push against VCPU enough? can u pls elaborate more, bcos for my seidon 120v, my idle cpu temp is 33C, I would like to reduce it to 28C, is that any idea I can do that? thanks...

Hi Raymond,

 

try look this installation :

                                  

 

Idle at 33c is the good way ... currently my Idle in 30 with dual fans Jetflo but IF i turn on my air conditioning my idle down at 26c

 

fyi i have cm storm scout2 and 6 Jetflo Fans in my Casing with the fans controller (so this is an advantage for me)

 

 

hopely this tips can help you out :D

33C idle is pretty good already, so I would say you might be near the point where you can't really lower the idle temperature much anymore unless you lower your room temperature.

 

There's also no tangible benefit to that difference in those two temperatures. In fact, idle temperatures don't really matter that much if your load temperatures are fine, so don't worry too much :)

I agree with world. But to answer your question Raymond, the product came with 2 different types of screws. One was to screw down the radiator, the other to screw down the liquid cooling block onto the motherboard. I used the screws for the radiator in BOTH situations, which caused the liquid cooling block to not properly cool the cpu (not screwed down enough due to different screw). I went back, switched it to the proper screw, bolted down, and voilà. As I said before, I agree with world as 33 deg C is pretty good, and having ac on will push that down. 

 

May your framerates be high, and your temperatures low.
