Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Review

During extensive testing including assembly there was hardly anything to criticize at the Nepton 140XL. The processing, cooling performance, as well as the technical aspects are very good. So the Nepton 140 XL is recommended for anyone who wants to buy a small water cooler. Only the mounting of the radiator at the rear end of the case might be a problem with some PC cases, so you should measure the free space or mount the radiator at the top.

Hint: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide you can virtually check each cooler on different motherboards, the Cooler Master Nepton 140XL will be added with the next update as well.

With these good results the Cooler Master Nepton 140 XL earned our OCinside.de Overclocking Dream Award 07/2014.

* A direct comparison to our previously tested coolers is not possible, because the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime. Nevertheless our CPU coolerchart* is here again with a comprehensive CPU cooler comparison.
