Cooler Master Nepton 240M Review

Cooler Master Nepton 240M Detailed Features

The Silencio fans are Cooler Master branded 120mm fans that contribute to the overall silent operation of the cooler. It is difficult to see any external features of the fans that may be responsible for the silent operation.

The mounting surface of the CPU cooler is protected against any scratches and oxidization by a protective adhesive plastic cover which is easily removed.

For an Intel 2011 type of CPU socket it is necessary to first mount 4 small standoffs for attachment to the cooler pump.

The fan and radiator assembly can be easily preassembled with the gasket and attached hardware and then mounted in one step to the top of the case. This is much easier than other systems that require you to feed four long bolts through the top of the enclosure, through the fans and finally into the radiator body.

    Hopefully they don’t have the same bearing issue that Corsair had with their version of this unit (H100)…

      Time will tell. I’m very impressed with the silence of the unit so far in a 24/7 system , so I’ll be listening for any developing rattling or squeaking.

      BTW, I ran a Corsair H100 for 3 years without developing any bearing noise. The H100 is a good unit, but it’s stock fans run very loud under load.

    I have a swiftech H220 in a long RMA and I’m thinking to buy the Nepton 240M. How is the H220 vs Nepton 240M ?

      Hi Marco,

      Looking at the H220 specifications, the two units appear to be similar in performance. You will notice the lower noise of the Nepton (6.5 dBA min) vs the Swiftech (16dBA min).

      And the Nepton has a 5 year warranty vs the 3 years for the Swiftech. Overall the Nepton would be a great choice. I’ve been using it 24/7 with no issues.

      Good luck!

        Hi Aidan,

        thanks for your prompt reply. The new Silencio fan do a great job! What about the pump ? Is it silent ?

            Hi Marco,

            Yes. The pump is inaudible even with the case open. All in all it’s a very quiet closed loop cooling system.
