Cooler Master Nepton 240M – Review
I followed the steps of the manual up to a point, now I wouldn’t say the Nepton 240M’s manual is hard to follow, but for me the installation steps felt a bit out of order.
In step 3 for example they show to remove the plastic protective cover on the base of the cooler and put the thermal paste on the CPU; this is before fitting the mounting plate to the back of the motherboard, the mounting bolts for this plate and before fitting the actual mounting bracket to the cooler.
Considering how annoying thermal paste is at the best of times, I feel the steps could do with being re-ordered, to put this step nearer the end.
After following the steps, the Nepton 240m was neatly snug in my system and ready to go. Rather than being an open air environment I really like giving coolers a hard time, so it was fitted into a compact real world system to see how it would hold up.
