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

Closer Look

Cooler Master have gone with a bigger radiator and tubing size on these new Nepton coolers to allow for better flow and cooling. FEP tubing connects the radiator to the custom water block that features a big copper base and an exclusive pump that should offer a longer life span and lower nice during operation.

Depending how you mount the coolers, you may have the model name on the side of display, which is small and won’t cause any disturbances.

The gaps in the radiator are nicely spaced and should allow the water to flow through freely and easily in aid to help keep the CPU nice and cool.

There is a couple of warranty void if removed stickers on each of the Nepton coolers. The first of which seems absolutely pointless and, to be frank, PISSES ME OFF! The first warranty sticker is on the power cable for the pump and serves no real purpose from what I can see other than being a pain in the ass and causing an eyesore.

The second warranty void if removed sticker actually seems to serve a purpose and is actually setting on top of what looks to be a fill port of the radiator which would make sense that Cooler Master wouldn’t want users messing with the fluid levels in a close unit.

The pump for the unit sits encased on top of the customer water block that features a large copper base. The larger base should come in handy for cooling bigger CPUs such as though that make use of the newer 2011-3 socket type. When everything is all installed and running, the Cooler Master logo on top of the pump illuminates with a nice white LED.

Both the 120XL and 240M come with 2x Silencio 120mm fans that feature and all black design and come with braided cables and per normal. These fans are designed to have high static pressure and as such should be a good fit with the radiator and help to push maximum airflow through the fins of the radiators.
