Cooler Master Nepton 240M Review

Introduction

Having looked at the 280L back in March we thought we'd take a gander at the smaller 240M model.  As the name suggests the Nepton 240M is based on twin 120mm fans as opposed to the 280Ls twin 140mm units.  Because of this, it's unlikely to better its bigger brother in the performance charts, but then, being smaller it should fit into many more cases that the bigger 280mm units are able to.  Competition is very fierce in the 240mm sector of the AIO market, which means the 240M will still have to make a good fist of things in the performance torture tests if it's to see off the likes of the similarly priced H100i and H105.

Wow I didn't expect that, who am I kidding it's a CM "M" series AIO, they all suck, of cause they will later release a "V" version and temporarily redeem their honor then follow it up with another "L" this seems to be the case time and again for CM. This was painful to see especially as it gets a whooping from a Air cooler, OK it's the D15 but still a 240mm AIO being out classed by air. Poor show Cooler Master.Quote

I've watched some reviews of the 240M and I was looking for one to buy (based on the reviews I watched ), I guess it's good, I didn't find one, so I went with the 100i.Quote
