As performance has increased, traditional cooling solutions have struggled to keep up. Engineers have made air coolers larger, and added more fans and heat pipes in an effort to keep CPU temperatures in check. This approach has only taken us so far in the quest for the ultimate cooling solution. The popularity of custom water cooling has been on the rise among the elite and hardcore gamers. Others find it too bothersome or worrisome to add liquids where we have been taught not to put them. Over the last two years there has been an explosion of middle ground solutions called All in One Liquid (AIO) Cooling or Sealed Loop Systems. These have allowed the better cooling of water without the maintenance or fears of a fully custom water cooling system. Cooler Master has been successful with their previous outings in the seal loop arena but now they want to tackle the last hurdle for all AIO’s; expandability. The Glacer 240L Liquid CPU cooler is meant to address all of your current needs and those you may have in the future. That is a tall order for any CPU cooler but Cooler Master feels the Glacer 240L is up to the task. We will find out soon if they are correct.

Today we are going to be looking at a new AIO/CL CPU Liquid Cooler unit. Just in case you don't know these termes, AIO stands for "All in One" and "CL" for "Closed Loop." These conventions have become rather popular over the last few years in the PC world. With the latest technology advancements in water cooling, it has become much easier for consumers to water cool their PCs with these AIO CPU Liquid Cooling units. The design takes the guess work out. With water cooling kits in the past, it could take countless hours of planning, and assembly could become a headache for those that have no experience. However, recently we have seen a change with the new trend in water cooling. We have started to see these AIO and CL coolers show up from several manufactures. Today we are going to take a look at a new-comer in the AIO CPU Liquid Cooler field. It is a device from Cooler Master called the Seidon 120m Liquid CPU Cooler.
