ID-Cooling SE-207-XT Black Review

A Closer Look »


Much like other ID-Cooling products, the packaging keeps the familiar black and orange scheme. The font is the SE-207-XT Black in all its glory, with nothing else to see but its hulking form. A quick turn to the left side of the box gives a quick rundown of its features, including its silent operation, easy installation, black coating, etc., along with the TDP, which ID-Cooling lists as 280 watts. Also listed here are the supported sockets, which have been paired down. Unfortunately, the SE-207-XT only supports Socket AM4 on AMD, while on Intel, support for LGA775 and LGA1366 has been dropped. Not a big deal, it is something to keep in mind if you're playing around with older hardware. Meanwhile, the backside has the cooler's specifications, including the overall dimensions, fan RPM range, CFM, etc.

The right side has images that detail the cooler's dimensions, but oddly missing is the cooler's height; however, it is listed in the specifications table and, as such, not a huge omission. Finally, the top has the product name and nothing else.


The cooler comes with the fans pre-mounted and packed in some foam. As for the universal mounting hardware, it is placed in a separate, smaller box. While not the best packaging I have seen, there is no wasted space here, and the cooler arrived safe and sound, which is, as you might guess, a plus.

Socket support is quite robust even with the removal of older sockets. AM4 is AMD's current mainstream socket and has been for years. Meanwhile, Intel's LGA775 is long since dead, and LGA1366 is long in the tooth, so to speak. As such, the absence of AM2, AM3, and the previously mentioned Intel sockets isn't a huge deal.

Common parts supplied for mounting include:
  • 6x Fan clips
  • 4x AMD screws
  • 4x Plastic standoffs
  • 4x Nuts
  • 4x LGA2011/2066 screws
  • 2x Intel mounting plates
  • 2x AMD mounting plate
  • 2x 120 mm fans
  • 1x Intel backplate
  • 1x 3-way PWM fan splitter cable
  • 1x Heatsink
  • 1x Tube of thermal paste
  • 1x Instruction manual
  • 1x ID-Cooling badge
