Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Liquid CPU Cooler Review

A CLOSER LOOK

08The Nepton 140XL comes with the main cooling unit, a pair of Cooler Master’s new JetFlo fans in 140mm non-LED trim, warranty booklet, instruction booklet and finally the hardware bag.

09Cooler Master’s new JetFlo fans included with the Nepton 140XL are 7-blade 140mm versions with built-in vibration dampers and PWM speed control. The fan cable comes sleeved in a nice black sleeving with black heatshrink.

10The fans are rated for 12VDC and 0.8A with speeds ranging from 800-2000RPM (+/- 10%) pushing 54~122.5CFM with 0.7~3.5mm H2O static pressure, with a range of 21~39dBA.

11The mounting points on the frame feature rubber pads for vibration damping, however the mounting points are not screwed to the main frame like they are on the 120mm versions.

12The blades on the JetFlo’s are unique in that they’re textured with a single raised strip towards the outer edge.

13The cable is sleeved with black nylon sleeving and terminated in a black 4-pin PWM connector.

14The pump/block assembly is fairly small and lightweight. It features the Cooler Master logo front and center with a ring around it that lights up.

15The tubing is connected to a pair of 90º fittings which are then in turn connected to the pump unit. The fittings rotate in the assembly to allow flexibility in mounting.

Cooler Master has been known for their line of AiO coolers for quite some time now and, even though they've got a pretty wide selection already available, they constantly seem to come out with something new. A perfect example of this is seen with their new Nepton Series of liquid CPU coolers where they are 140mm class units, yet they can accomodate 140mm or 120mm fans. Our friends at Cooler Master sent us one of these new Nepton 140XL to throw on the bench and check out. About the Nepton 140XL: "The Nepton 140XL is Cooler Master’s latest watercooling kit…
