EDIT: Amazon have pricematched but now a 1-3 month wait with them. Nothing stopping you from trying Flubit though!

Pixmania, I know, but pretty ridiculous price for this IMO! Around £85 and up everywhere else I think - ~£18 cheaper might not seem much, but in the world of water cooling, it's a pretty big discount.

The Nepton 280L is Cooler Master's latest watercooling kit that aims to bring watercooling to the next level. Nepton 280L is using a CM exclusive designed pump with a highly effective water block. It has thicker and longer tubing for upgraded performance. In addition, dual JetFlo 140 fans + an extra large 280mm radiator provide substantial cooling power with over 300W heat dissipation, which enables users to overclock their CPU and maximize performance. pump and water block guarantees the best water flow and system performance. strong and durable for 280mm radiator installation. Moreover, FEP tubing have great advantage for less liquid dissipation. basic provides powerful air pressure. The rubber pad on the side of stiff reduce vibration and noise. Compared to other normal fans, the advanced fan blade design of JetFlo 140 can concentrate more air for excellent cooling performance with a low noise level. The radiator of Nepton has additional mounting holes for 120mm fans, which provides better compatibility for cases without 140mm mounting holes.

Ahhh... I see. Bloody good deal though.

Urgh, why do I keep destroying my bank balance.

Got the last one from Amazon, Thanks Dobo for pointing that out.
I'm using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO right now, but I find its huge in my case, and have noticed my CPU getting warmer recently. (even though my rooms colder) will see how this does. It was either this or the H100i.

Buhh... my Fractal Define R3 doesn't fit the new cooler.

Which new case should I buy? Budget is £75 or less.

Do you mean the R3 doesn't fit this rad? I'm pretty sure it does?! The top out take has space for 2x140mm?

EDIT: Sorry, was mistaking the R3 for the R4. In actuality I don't think either work with this without some modding...
Edited by: "mamboboy" 15th Nov 2014

I would still get a phantom full tower. I just love them.

Haven't physically checked yet, but I don't think there will be even remotely enough clearance to fit the fans onto the radiator. Mind you, I might be able to remove the 3.5" drive cage from the front and banish the HDDs/SSD into the 5.25" bays.
Edited by: "SUMMONER" 14th Nov 2014

I've got an R3 as well, I think it will fit across the top of the case (not all mount holes might line up mind), but if you move the rear top case fan there should be just enough clearance. I went for it anyway because Amazon returns is so hassle free.

Haven't voted either way but I would personally stay away from water cooling. At a touch under 70 quid why not put that towards buying a more powerful CPU rather than overclocking your existing one. Most CPUs won't allow you to overclocking to the point where your CPU is likely to get damaged from heat just because of how unstable they'll be at that kind of level

Complete and utter rubbish. I have had my 2500k running at 4.4Ghz from the stock 3.3 for years now with zero issue.

Still seem waaay too pricey... Don't get why these things don't cost like... 20 quid.

A decent 140mm fan isn't far off a tenner... so you're saying the aluminium radiator, etc is only worth a couple of quid or so?

you can get a good solid 140mm fan for a fiver. and a good heat sink and fan for like £12. £66.80 for a radiator with a couple of cheap fans, block and basic pump... about £25 should be a normal price and yet this is considered a bargain next to their normal ridiculous prices. I have a gigantic heat sink and fan plonked on my 3770k. Would like something like this to keep it cooler and leave more room for overclocking but it does seem a bit pricey even when it's "cheap"

Original Poster

Please link me to a solid 140mm fan for £5....

And how are CM JetFlo fans 'cheap'? I really don't understand...

You make it sound like AIO coolers are cheap and easy to knock together, but in reality there's a lot of craftsmanship and quality involved in order for them to... you know... not fall apart. I have this 280L next to me boxed, and just from the weight of it I can tell it's quality.

Enjoy

Because regardless of what the manufacturer says. They are just basic pwm fans that cost them sod all to make. They give it a fancy name and stickers but it's still just a little brushless motor spinning a fan. I've had no name fans last twice the mtbf and proper branded ones get dried out bearings and fail.

Another major factor for some to consider is audio level, AIO Watercoolers tend be quieter or near silent even with heavily OC'd chips. However I do understand where you're coming from, does the gain warrant the price over a Air Cooler, with this deal - definitely yes, at its RRP probably not.

Yeah they probably are pretty decent. And it's probably costing them about a tenner to make. so why no sell it for about £30 or something? instead of nearly 100 with this being an amazing knock down in price.

The noise would be the main thing for me. when gaming my Zalman CNPS5X can get a little noisy but then so can my card. I like things quiet and when I say noisy its not like a fan totally roaring away. But I still think they cost too much and even getting this I'm still gonna be hearing my card too. So really it comes down to do I want to overclock a bit more for £66.80. Nah, it's nippy enough as it is. I'd definitely upgrade for about £30. hell I'd go up to about £40 for the extra bit of power I could coax out of it. But not this much. Still I'm no ones daddy. You're money folks, buy what you like. I'm merely pointing out that these things seem to cost more than what they're worth.

Aerocool fans are bobbins! I had one in my case for all of 10 minutes before going in the bin lol

I'm sorry but I just don't understand your logic - if your point stands then it means air coolers currently priced at around £45, should really be being sold at £8 (£4 for the terrible fan and £4 for the aluminium.. because you know... it's just aluminium)... the cost of labour, manufacture, distribution, overheads, VAT and what not should just be forgotten about.

I think it's clear you haven't used watercooling before and are seriously underestimating what watercooling actually entails. You seem to think it's just some cheap/rubbish fans attached to some poor quality radiator and pump that took about 5 seconds to make. The fact is weighs around 2.5 kilos should tell you all you need to know!

Good price, happy with my H100 or might be tempted.

Don't follow how these should cost £20.

Air coolers at £45? I paid £15 for a Zalman CNPS5X. Works great. And didn't need to cost £45. For more equipment in a water cooling setup I'd be willing to part with £40 like I said. But the regular £100 or so seems like a rip for what you get.

Got for 54.07 through Flubit.
Thanks.

How do they compare to a corsair h100i?

I can get this for £53 through flubit. Is there any advantage using this over my noctua d14? specifically in noise. I have two 140mm noctua redux fans on it too so I'm rarely over 1000rpm with them.

Probably not, unless you'd prefer to move to an AIO cooler for the look of it inside your case then I doubt you'd see much performance improvement. This could actually be a fair bit louder depending on the fan and it's positioning in the case.
Edited by: "dobo" 15th Nov 2014

How much louder? I also have a d14 and thought this was one of quieter aio coolers? The d14 does take some beating in the noise department.

Lot of ignorant shoppers in this thread. Lol 'buy a more powerful CPU', what if you buy your i7 and it still isn't fast enough? ,That's when overclocking comes in, and water cooling is the stable way to do it. Overclocking doesn't lead to instability so long as you boost the voltage. I run my Pentium g3258 @ 4.5ghz and it doesn't get hotter than 60.

never buy from Pixmania....ever

Pixmania have the worst Custer service you can possibly image.

It takes months if you have a problem, they attempt to avoid all costs themselves, in spite of UK laws.

Also, all their help lines are premium 0870 or 0840 numbers, and I've spend up to 2 hours on hold on these lines.

I would suggest staying clear of Pixmania.

read the title, Amazon price matched so ignore Pixmania lol

Can anyone who has the box for one of these tell me the space inbetween the two fans in the middle of the radiator? Is it 20 mm or 15? Can't find the diagram for the dimensions on the CM website, just want to make sure it'll fit snuggly in my Antec DF-85. Cheers

Just checked... there's a diagram on the back that says 15mm

Anyone take a picture of one fitted please so I can see cheers
