At first glance, the Cooler Master Nepton 240M looks just like any other dual 120mm cooling solution. However, take a closer look at the specifications and you realize that this product is making some substantial performance claims. With a stated typical noise floor of 11 dB(A) and four times greater surface area than the competition, the Cooler Master Nepton 240M should produce some impressive results in comparison to other popular liquid cooling systems.
In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the new Cooler Master Nepton 240M all-in-one water cooling system to determine if it’s performance matches the claims. We compare performance for the Nepton 240M against two other popular dual-fan liquid coolers.
The Nepton 240M is a new 240mm liquid cooler and features Cooler Master’s latest Silencio series fans capable of 1.2mmH20 at only 11dB(A). Cooler Master claims the water-block has been improved with “Jet Impingement Technology”, increasing efficiency and providing a 120 liter per hour flow rate.
