Cooler Master Nepton 240M Liquid Cooling System Review Cooler Master Nepton 240M Liquid Cooling System Review
Coolermaster's Nepton 240M utilizes a 277x120mm aluminum heat exchanger that measures 28mm thick. The 'Silencio' is a novel high-pressure fan that spins at 2400RPM-800RPM to drive up to 76CFM at 4.8mmH2O air pressure, according to manufacturer specs. Connecting the heat exchanger to the Nepton 240M's waterblock is a 310mm length of 13mm O.D. corrugated Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) tubing.

Coolermaster Hyper D92 Heatsink Review Coolermaster Hyper D92 Heatsink Review
The Coolermaster Hyper D92 is a moderately sized CPU cooler which stands 147mm tall and weighs 636 grams. The Hyper D92 ships with not a 120mm... or even 140mm fan, but rather a pair of 92mm fans that spin at 2800-800RPM. The fans move upwards of 15-55CFM according to manufacturer specs. Small 92mm fans may seem terribly risky, but Coolermaster have a trick up their sleeves.

Cooler Master Nepton 280L Liquid Cooling System Review Cooler Master Nepton 280L Liquid Cooling System Review
Coolermaster's Nepton 280L is the best performing all-in-one CPU watercooler Frostytech has tested... thus far. More surprisingly for us, the Nepton 280L managed to rise to the top of the 200W Intel LGA2011, 150W & 85W Intel LGA115x/775 and 125W AMD synthetic thermal heatsink test results charts. After testing +750 CPU thermal solutions, it's kind of nice to be surprised.

Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Liquid Cooling System Review Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Liquid Cooling System Review
The Nepton 140XL ships completely assembled, plumbed and filled. The user need only attach the heat exchanger to a free fan vent (140mm or 120mm) on the inside of the PC case and mount the waterblock/pump head to the processor. There's no silly software or USB connections to monitor pump speed or liquid temperatures.

Coolermaster Seidon 120V Liquid Cooling System Review Coolermaster Seidon 120V Liquid Cooling System Review
UPDATED! Coolermaster's Seidon 120V is an economical all-in-one liquid cooling solution that's especially suited to small PC cases and media centers. The compact 120mm aluminum heat exchanger ships with a single 120mm fan, so it doesn't take up too much space and make mounting to a rear/top fan vent cumbersome.

Coolermaster Gemin II M4 Heatsink Review Coolermaster Gemin II M4 Heatsink Review
The Coolermaster Gemin II M4 heatsink measures just 61mm tall, from the base of its exposed copper heatpipes to the tippy tip of its translucent vaneaxial fan. How does manage to squeeze in a fan and enough cooling surface area in a package so thin?

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo Heatsink Review Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo Heatsink Review
Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Evo heatsink stands 160mm tall, weighs in at moderate 569 grams and packs in four exposed 6mm diameter copper heatpipes on its base. Otherwise the Hyper 212 Evo is a pretty standard 'tower' heatsink. A 600-2000RPM, 120mm PWM fan is supplied with swept-forward impeller blades.

Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM Heatsink Review Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM Heatsink Review
The Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM heatsink stands 163mm tall and weighs a pretty hefty 806 grams. The cooler is compatible with Intel socket 775/1155/1156 and LGA1366 processors, but crucially not LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E CPUs. AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors are supported.

Coolermaster Vortex Plus Heatsink Review Coolermaster Vortex Plus Heatsink Review
The Vortex Plus heatsink stands 83mm tall, in total. A 25mm thick, 92mm PWM fan exhausts downward so waste air impinges on a lower extruded aluminum heatsink that sits atop the processor. It's both a good use of space for additional cooling surface area and an admission by heatsink designers that the aluminum fins above aren't getting the whole job done by themselves.

Coolermaster Hyper N520 Heatsink Review Coolermaster Hyper N520 Heatsink Review
This tower heatsink stands out because its two 92mm fans are arranged in an offset push-pull formation. There are a couple reasons for offsetting the fans by 20mm that we'll touch on momentarily.

Squirrel cage fans have a couple of benefits over standard vaneaxial fans when it comes to lower-noise heatsinks, though they don't tend to deliver nearly as much air.
