  1. That's like the 4th different configuration method for the pump + fan connector placement that I've read about.

     

    This guy works for CM and he places the pump connector on a Fan header on the mobo.

    Clearly, not "as easy as that" and this really needs to be clarified once and for all by Cooler Master.

     

    Seriously, I've never had the displeasure of dealing with such useless instructions. And this isn't just me; if you go to Newegg.com or other sites with reviews, you will see many people list the instruction manual as a con and have really negative things to say about it.

     

    well i have the Gigabyte ga-z97x-sli and thats the way it works properly. it is the way it is meant to work...


  2. One thought for the Cooler Master Nepton 140XL : 

     

    i have it coupled with intel core i7 4790, gigabyte ga-z97x-sli mobo, and a gtx 970, and when checking the temps in the gigabyte center, on idle, keeps my processor at 16-17 degrees celsius. i must say, i am very pleased with it. no whine from the pump, it is deadly silent :D 


  3. Hi Kikoandroid thanks for reply yes i have the cpu cooler attached to sysFan1 which has 4 pins and is controlable from the bios and is set auto or 100% as i beleive this controls the pump speed, and the double fans are coonected to the CPUFAN which is also a 4 pin connector. but does not seem to vary in speed. there is a sysfan2 but is only a 3 pin and is not controlled from BIOS.

    do you have another 4pin header on your motherboard? if you do, try connecting it there. 


  4. hi hope someone can help me, i have installed a neptun 280l water cool system but the fans are constantly running at 6846 rpm and is noisey all the time any ideas thanks

    have you tried connecting the fans to a pwm header (that is the one with 4 pins, not 3) ? hook them on the pwm header and you should be fine


  5. Hi- QQ- will the 140XL fit in my Silverstone FT02 case?

     

    Just choosing components for an upgrade to MSI X99S SLI Plus motherboard + 5820 CPU... seen reviews recommending this cooler, just worried will buy it and find won't fit.

     

    Thanks! Appreciate any advice!!

    yes, you can fit it, although it will go on the bottom since it has this kind of fan support: 3 x 180mm intake fan 700/1200rpm, 18/34dBA.

    i use the nepton 140xl and i am very satisfied. 


  6. the wattage is not that important now, i can get any of the three psu's, pretty much the same price. but the thing is some people said that the two (the gx lite and the B) both @ 600W are low quality and junk, and thats why i decided to come here and discuss that. so, the gx lite or the b @600W ? and those are good psu's , wont let me down? 


  7. hi guys, quick question: i have the nepton 140XL, and i was wandering how is the orientation of the jetflo fans in order to be the push - pull configuration? both fans have a cooler master logo and on the other side there is the technical sticker. so how should the sticker / logo on both fans  on either side of the radiator should be to get a push - pull configuration? 


  8. if the case supports the 2 x 12cm fan holes, then you should be fine. my best advice is to (if possible) take the radiator and ask the employees at the store if you can check / put the radiator only to test if it can fit. next thing is to read reviews around for the case and see if anyone had ever fit a similar 240mm radiator inside the case. 

    As far as i can see here: http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/products/cases/enforcer/ (i think its the case you are talking about), then the seidon 240m is not on the compatibility list. you can always mod the case to fit the 240m but i wouldnt recommend. i would rather go with this tower:

    just because of the extra space. 

     

    hope this helps. 


  9. Hi guys, i have a really straightforward question, since my research ended up getting me much more confused then when i started it; 

    first, here is my machine (the psu is missing now, thats why i need this help):

     

    intel core i7 3770

    cooler master nepton 140xl

    kingston 2x8GB @ 2400MHz

    oz agility 3 120GB ssd

    hitachi 2TB hdd @ 7200rpm

    asus dvd rw

    sapphire gtx 760 

     

    since i need a good psu for this (gonna do some vm's and moderate gaming sometimes), i have a choice between these psu's that are available in my country (sadly its a small country):

     

    Cooler master GX lite 600W

    Cooler master B 600w

    Cooler master G550M

     

    which one of these three psu's gonna be the best for my machine considering what i plan on doing on my machine? i ask this only because i got a "feedback" from some people that say some of those are junk psu's and you should buy bla bla bla... So, straightforward question -> which one of the three psu's listed? 

     

    Thank you and sorry for my lengthy post :)
