Published by


In case you missed our review (read here), Cooler Master announced the Nepton 120XL and 240M, the latest additions to the Nepton all-in-one liquid cooling series by Cooler Master. 

Cooler master launched its first AIO liquid cooler in March 2004, fast forward to 2013 and the award winning Cooler Master Nepton series was introduced with the 140XL and 280L models, based on 140mm fans. 2014 sees the culmination of a decade of liquid cooling engineering, fan feedback and more than 20 years of manufacturing cooling solutions to bring this high performance platform in a compact package.

It's all in the details… 

By taking the Nepton platform, using improved pump and fan technology overall size has been reduced without the impact on performance normally associated with reduction in size. Additionally overall noise levels have been fine tuned and reduced.

In the details - Silence when you need it
New Silencio FP 120 pressure optimized PWM fans produce as little noise as 6.5dBA and 120mm fans size ensures compatibility with a wide range of chassis options.
When you need it PWM technology will dynamically increase fan power relative to motherboard heat sensors.

In the details - Power when you need it
The Nepton series utilizes an exclusive evolved pump design by Cooler Master using Jet Impingement technology to pass 120 Liters of liquid per hour through a copper skived fin water block. This gives the ability to cool CPUs with a TDP of up to 300w and guarantees improved water flow and heat transport. 

In the details - Reliability when you need it
The Cooler Master Nepton series comes pre-filled at the factory and air pressure tested to ensure that no maintenance is necessary for many years. 
With evolved pump technology, thicker more durable FEP tubing and thicker radiator designs, Nepton systems exhibit excellent reliability and longevity. Backed by a five year warranty, the Nepton 120XL and 240M will be keeping systems cool confidently for years to come.

In the details - Design when you need it
The water block features an LED illumination around the Cooler Master logo, providing a stylish accent to the system. 

The Nepton 120XL and Nepton 240M all-in-one liquid coolers will be available in Europe at beginning of November. Price and availability may vary based on region.
Expected MSRP (120XL-79,90€) (240M-84,90€).
