Not happy.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: it works I suppose. 280mm rad.
  • Cons: noisy. from day one, the pump made noise. initially it was not noticeable because of my loud gpu fans, but when I was playing with pump/fan speeds I noticed the pump noise was so incessant. and it was past the 30 day return period. I doubt I will ever buy an AIO Cooler ever again. it's as if ther...

  • Pros: Easy installation (this was my first time with water cooling)
  • Cons: Was shipped via a 3rd party who used TNT for shipping. Part to forever to reach me.

Good idea, bad product.

James H., Newegg

  • Summary: If you use amd I suppose this might work but would you ever spend 120 dollars on a guess? Guess again, I did and i was wrong. I hope they will refund my money or give me a bracket that actually works but i've no hopes of that happening. The level of Q.A.
  • Pros: If looks were the determining factor this would be a fabulous item, the bench tests were gaga over this product. I wish I could say more, i wanted to like it but nope! It does fit my corsair case sort of.
  • Cons: It is an MFJ - 'A magnificent ******** piece of junk' entirely due to the fact that the brackets don't fit my 2011-V3 EVGA x99 classified board, I am unable to mount it on the board. it's a 120 dollar paper weight all because of the bad brackets.

Nepton 240M (pump failure)

Lelan U., Newegg
5 January 2016
  • Summary: The product lasted from 12/7/14 to 1/2/16. Happy new year to me. It may have been an isolated defect with my unit, so no 3-star rating. While it worked, it worked very, very well. Under load with demanding games, my i7 4790k with a 9% OC to 4.6GHz never exceeded 50C until my radiator got dusty.
  • Pros: Excellent cooling, by far. Very, very good. Very quiet, but the fans ramp up when they need to. Easy to manage, quality piping. 5-year warranty.
  • Cons: Pump failure after only one year. The mount and mounting process is a bit tricky and tedious.

Headache waiting to happen

Malisa K., Newegg
28 December 2015
  • Summary: Other then the mess of a booklet and hard install it does it's job.
  • Pros: Cools the cpu.
  • Cons: Was by FAR the hardest cooler I've ever installed. Tubes are ridged and give little way. The booklet was confusing. Pictures for instructions. Did I mention hard to install?

This is an update,

Timothy W., Newegg

  • Summary: Chris R. was kind enough to share that "Wouldn't cool processor at all" which would be very disappointing. I'd like to share a few installation details which folks may find helpful. Both the pump and all the fans run off of fan headers.
  • Pros: durable and very effective
  • Cons: could be quieter

huge cooler

Justin H., Newegg
30 November 2015
  • Summary: Does not fit in the fractal design r5 with asus maximus viii hero. the heatsink on the mobo is too tall. same thing with ram but you can just get low profile ram and it will work. but this cooler will not work with some mobo with taller heatsinks inside a standard atx case.
  • Pros: it is suppose to be one of the best 280mm all in one cpu water cooler. but I am sad that I cant use it.
  • Cons: Does not fit in the fractal design r5 with asus maximus viii hero. the heatsink on the mobo is too tall. same thing with ram but you can just get low profile ram and it will work. but this cooler will not work with some mobo with taller heatsinks inside a standard atx case.

So far, so good...

Brett W., Newegg

  • Pros: Quiet, nice fans. smooth install... A gasket between the fans and the radiator a nice touch to absorb vibration, noise.
  • Cons: Wish the thermal paste were pre-applied. A few steps to install but not bad.
