Cooler Master Nepton 240M Review

Assembly continued

As usual we're fitting the cooler on test to our trusty torture device, namely the mosty toasty 3960X socket 2011 CPU.  To this we first attach mounting hardware to the sockets integral threaded mount holes.  If you're using other Sockets, then you're going to need to use the provided all in one back plate.

With the mounting hardware in place the cold plate assembly can be lowered onto the socket.  It's held in place by tightening down four screws which will first need to be lined up with the holes through the appropriate slots.  The screws have springs to aid tensioning and prevent over tightening.

The Cooler Master 240M in it's natural home.  A Cooler Master case of course, in this case the "Test Trooper" we use to conduct all our heat sink testing.  With the entire radiator fan assembly measuting no more than 54mm deep it should fit easily into most cases that have a bit of room up top for a radiator.

Having attached the two 4 pin fan connectors via the supplied fan splitter cable its time to attach the power cable from the cold plate assembly.  annoyingly this is on the opposite side of the block to the tubing meaning it may break up the tidy lines of your wiring loom if not dealt with diligently.  Once powered up, the cold plate lights up with the Cooler Master logo.

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
