With the Nepton 240M, Cooler Master has an all-in-one watercooler in its portfolio, that comes with a rather slim radiator and two 120 millimeter fans in the delivery. At a first look the design is looking good while you get a completely black solution. Overall we're now rather curious to find out what this cooler can do in terms of cooling and noise levels.
Today we have the pleasure to check out Cooler Master's Nepton 240M compact liquid
cooling system, which, should be compatible with
small cases and tighter spaces thanks to its 274 mm long, 27mm slim and 119mm
wide radiator. This particular 240mm radiator is slightly slimmer than
other 240mm models, since it's only 27mm thick. This helps saving a few
millimeters and might allow the installation in cases, which otherwise could not
be equipped with an all-in-one watercooler. Apart from that there are kink-resistant
which allow for tight bending radius. Overall this cooler is
well made and with its completely black color scheme it's easy to integrate into
the design scheme of lots of different builds. The bundle includes two 120mm PWM fans,
which are entirely black too. The mounting system supports most, if not all, recent Intel and AMD sockets.
When it comes to manufacturing Cooler Master is very proud on the fact they're
making every single piece on their own.
As you can see from the pictures above manufacturing quality of the Cooler Master Nepton
on the level it should be. It's not exceptional but it's still on a decent level for a
90 Euro all-in-one cooler. The radiator itself has been made from aluminium and
there are the usual flat pipes, which increase surface area. The cooling block
features a copper base-plate, which is surprisingly rough. We would like to see
Cooler Master polish the base plate. Thermal compound has not been pre-applied,
which is always a good thing, since the paste delivered in syringes is usually
of higher quality. To be a bit more precise the dimensions of the Nepton 240M are
274 mm x 27 mm x 119mm (LxHxW). According to the specifications
Cooler Master equipped the Nepton 240M with two PWM fans, which spin with
800 to 2400 RPM.

The packaging is quite standard for an all-in-one water cooling system.
Alongside the AIO unit you receive two fans, a manual and mounting kits. Cooler
the Nepton 240M with two mounting kits, one for AMD and one for Intel-based
systems, as well as a backplate is used for Intel
sockets. The Cooler Master Nepton 240M is even compatible with the old Intel
socket LGA775. If anything should break down with the Nepton 240M AIO water cooler
you get a warranty that covers such event for a whopping five
