Cooler Master Nepton 280L Review (Page 1 of 4) | APH Networks



“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The rest were Made in China.” Unless you have been living under a rock, many products are made in China for one reason or another, whether it is for cheaper labor, cheaper parts, or just because. This is true for products such as Apple’s iPads and iPhones. Not only are many products made in China, some products may look awfully alike. For those Apple lovers out there, one could say that every iteration of the Mac pretty much looks the same. And although designed in California, everything is assembled in China, as with many other products these days. By this logic, the quote as stated in the beginning seems to be very applicable Mac products. That said, as technology evolves overtime, some products become slimmer, lighter and faster, but there are also those that become bigger, yet they’re still just as great for the most part. But is bigger necessarily mean that the product isn’t as great as slim and light products? Wait… what? As paradoxical as it sounds, take mainframe computers. Back in the days, these computers were massive, but comparing with today’s super computers and servers, there is simply no competition in terms of processing power and other such factors. No doubt, slim HDTVs, laptops, ultrabooks, and tablets work the same way. But when it comes down to aftermarket coolers, the more surface area it has, the more heat it would be able to dissipate, given the same material that are used. What we have here today at APH Networks is Cooler Master’s very own closed-loop liquid cooling system, the Nepton 280L. Like Apple’s philosophy, its radiator design looks awfully like the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Performer and Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro, but they are not related at all. Will the philosophy of “bigger is better” apply? Let us take a closer look to see how well this beast performs!
