A CLOSER LOOK (CONT’D)
The base of the block features the standard “remove before use” sticker.
The base of the cooler is copper and machined flat and smooth but it not polished in any way. In typical fashion the copper base is screwed onto the unit with triangle security screws.
The radiator itself is pretty typical for an all-in-one cooler and features a fairly low FPI count.
The radiator on the Nepton 140XL has mounts for both 140mm and 120mm fans enabling you to use a wider array of fans to suit your style and/or build theme.
The fin count on the Nepton 140XL measures right about 14FPI which is relatively low and allows the use of lower speed and lower pressure fans for lower noise output.
The radiator itself measures 1.5″ or 38mm so it’s on the thicker side for AiO units.
Cooler Master includes everything you need to mount the Nepton 140XL to almost any Intel or AMD socket. They’ve also included nice socket-head cap screws for mounting the radiator and fans rather than the typical button-head type you usually see.
Now that we’ve taken a good look at the components lets install the Nepton 140XL onto our test system.
4 Star Rated!
The Cooler Master Nepton 140XL bundles great performance with innovative features to give one of the most diverse 140mm class AiO units on the market.
