Test System Setup
To see our testing methodology, and to find out what goes into making our charts, please refer to our CPU Cooler Testing and Methodology article for that information.
At idle, the Nepton 240M kept the processor at 26.5 degrees, but once the stock clock load was applied, we found the Nepton 240M did well with a 49.5 degree result. Getting into the top ten in our charts is rather tough, but the Nepton 240M made a serious run for it, and we find these results to be respectable.
At idle, we found no difference in temperature compared to stock clocks, but with the overclock applied, the temperatures moved up to 69.42 degrees on average. While thirteenth place doesn't seem that great, keep in mind that it is only about 3.5 degrees from first.
Noise Level Results
With 7.5V supplied to the fans, AIDA was reporting a speed of 2486 RPM, and the pump was spinning at 2600 RPM as well. The pump cannot be heard over the fans, and as for this pair, they gave us a 33 dB reading on the meter.
With the fans set lose to do what they do, we found them turning at 2356 RPM, and delivering 52 dB of noise into our office. We do like that these aren't obnoxiously loud when in use, and with the rubber gasket in play, there is no way for the chassis or the radiator to amplify the harmonics.
