Noctua Dual Fan 300x223 Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid Cooler (inc. Dual Fan Performance 2x Noctua NF F12)

Dual fan configurations are very popular amongst the All-in-One liquid CPU cooling audience. Various units are supplied with a pair of fans, and many of those that aren’t quickly get upgraded by their users.

We wanted to test if a pair of lower RPM fans is able to offer improved cooling performance with a reduced noise output.

The fans of choice were Noctua’s NF-F12 PWM models. They operate at a maximum speed of 1500 RPM with a static pressure of 2.61 mmH2O and airflow rate of 55.5 CFM. As with our previous testing, both fans were set to 100% speed and rear intake.

Cooler Master’s decision to use the 2400 RPM Blade Master was a very good one, as proven by the fact that it is able to match the cooling performance of a pair of Noctua’s premier 120mm models.

A sizeable decrease in the Seidon 120M’s maximum noise output can be achieved by using a pair of high quality, lower RPM fans.

    This is an excellent cooler, the all in ones are hard to beat now. I had a D14 for a while and loved it, but it was so hard to get at anything inside the case it blocked half the motherboard !

    I recentl got a Seidon 120M and it seems to work very nicely. I did add a C/M Turbo Master Mach 1.8 fan on the case side, which didn’t seem to add any perceptible noise. The one change that I would really like would be the ability to raise the water pump speed. With the two fans it seems that increasing the WP volume would be an excellent option. I’ve got a mildly overclocked i7 – 930 and when running a WSE scan, for instance, hte core temp can still rise to as high as 175 F, so a bit more water flow would be nice. I ahve it in a HAF 922 case and there is plenty of room. I’m about to add a 200mm side fan as well as the original rear case fan at the bottom of the case, and things still won’t be crowded

    Did you happen to try installing the fan with an exhaust setup? How much difference would you think the performance/results change?

    I am thinking of buying a Seidon 240, which you can front mount in a N200 case (both products by Cooler Master). If I do front mount is the air being drawn into the case to cool radiator or am I venting air outwards through the front?

    It seems to me air in through the front would mean the heat from the radiator being directed into the case. But i have never thought of front fans becoming exhausts, so perhaps this is correct.

    Hi, I have got this cooling system, but it is incomplete. I would like to but an AMD socket. Has anyone got to sell?
