Cooler Master Nepton 120XL and 240M AIO CPU Coolers Review 38

Introduction

Cooler Master has been a well-known name in the computer hardware industry for decades. As with a lot of companies, when they set out their goal was to provide the best in performance and innovations within the thermal solutions field. As time has passed by, Cooler Master has now only delivered on this, they have also expanded their product base and offer a nice range of cases, power supplies, fans and peripherals to go alongside their coolers and other thermal solutions they have to offer. With cases like the HAF and all its variants, especially the stacker and coolers like the V8, it is easy to see why Cooler Master has been around as long as it has. Dedicated to keeping their track record in good standings, it doesn’t appear as if Cooler Master is going anywhere anytime soon.

Today I will be taking a look at two of Cooler Master’s newest AIO CPU Liquid Coolers by way of the Nepton 120XL and Nepton 240M. The main difference between these two coolers is the size of them as their names would suggest, one is 120mm and the other is 240mm. Both of these coolers come with Silencio fans and feature a CM designed pump and water block that is said to allow for the best water flow and system performance.

Will the new designs live up to the hype? Let’s have a quick look at the specs before we jump into the packaging and closer look section of the review.
