There is one very simple reason why our today’s article saw the light of day. Cooler Master Company has recently launched their new updated cooling solution for graphics cards called CoolViva Pro SE .

We have already reviewed the first modification of this system in our article called New Graphics Card Cooling Solution from Cooler Master: CoolViva Pro Review and at that time it made a very good impression on us. This highly efficient, quiet, universal cooling solution from Cooler Master is still available in stores these days, but it is being little by little replaced by the second modification called CoolViva Pro SE (SE stands for Second Edition). So today we are going to discuss what the differences between the new CoolViva Pro SE and its predecessor actually are.

Taking into account everything we have already said in the previous article about the design and peculiarities of CoolViva Pro it doesn’t make much sense to repeat most of it today, as you can always check out our previous review. Therefore, we suggest dwelling particularly on the differences between the regular and SE modifications.

As always, let’s start with the package design and accessories bundle.

Package and Accessories

The design of CoolViva Pro SE package remained the same, there are only a few smaller details that allow distinguishing between the older and the newer versions. Besides the addition of the new “SE” lettering index to the cooler name on the front of the box, there are also three pictograms instead of one: one indicating the noise level and the other two with the new Nvidia and AMD graphics card models (hereinafter we will have CoolViva Pro on the left and CoolViva Pro SE on the right):

There are much more differences on the back side of the package. The photos are more detailed, the list of supported graphics cards is more extensive as well as the technical specifications and brief description of cooler features:

The accessories bundle has also been slightly changed:
