Cooler Master Seidon 120m vs hyper evo 212?

so i have the option to get the seidon for free but have heard stuff about bad noise and about how water coolers can start leaking or fail and fry your components!!! the evo is about 10 euro more so im not too sure because im already on a budget!!! so what are the chances of leaking or failure? and how is the noise on it as of heard about rattling noises it makes but apperently was patched? any thoughts????

  1. I've heard really bad things about the cheap watercooling loops. Not only do you have to maintain them much more often, there is also the possibility of leaks.

    I couldn't be happier with my EVO, it dropped stock temps almost 20 degrees.

    Heyo!

    The question is how hard you gonna OC ?
    If only light OC stick with the 212 evo. Or if u go water consider something from corsair instead.
    Be sure ur case has enough room for any of these coolers.

    Have fun!

  6. It depends on mobo as well, but I think 4-4,2 easily.
