Antec Neptune 240 A RGB AIO Liquid Cooler Review!


So we are going to take a look at Antec’s
Neptune 240mm liquid cooler today, which offers some unique features and aesthetics and also
performs pretty well, hey guys, I am siddharth, and let’s get started. In the box, you get an installation guide,
2 RGB fans which look and feel pretty good, then you get an LED and power hub which can
be used to both control the lighting, and power up to 5 fans, then you get the AIO itself
with a 240mm radiator on this model, and then you get different screws and brackets for
different CPU sockets, and they supply a threadripper bracket in the box, which is really great
to see. The installation is pretty straight forward,
but on AM4 socket you have to remove the bracket that comes with the motherboard, but on the
threadripper socket, you can just install it by installing the bracket on the CPU Block The water pump is integrated in the radiator
and not with the CPU block, so it is powered directly by a SATA connection and not by the
motherboard, so you cannot control the water pump speed, but that’s not necessarily a
bad thing, and the pump wasn’t audible when AIO was operating, so I don’t mind that. And according to Antec, this design prevents
any damage to CPU because of vibrations. Now unlike some other Coolers like Cooler
Master ML360R which allow you to make their logo upright instantly, on the Neptune 240
you have to unscrew it with an allenkey that isn’t provided in the box, and this unscrewing
and re screwing process is not very easy or quick. But most people will only have to do it one
time, and that too if it’s not upright in your case in your case so it’s not a big
issue (as long as you have the right sized allenkey). The AIO looks pretty good in my opinion, the
silver covering on it looks pretty nice and unique, and it stands out nicey from the rest
of the components. The RGB is also bright and well diffused,
and tastefully implemented. The fans supplied with AIO also look nice
and work well, and the RGB on them also looks nice. The supplied LED controller allows you do
have different RGB effects on the CPU block and fans, and at least the static and breathing
effects look nice. The hub also receives RGB signal from motherboard,
so if you have a motherboard with Aura sync like ASUS boards, or other ARGB control heads
on your MSI ASRock Gigabyte motherboard, you can use that to control it. The radiator also reflects case LEDs nicely,
which make it look pretty nice. In the box, you get So in my testing with a 3900x on a Prime95
stress test, it was able to maintain a temperature of 70 celcius, which is a pretty good result
in comparison to my Cooler master 360mm radiator with Corsair LL120 fans which kept the 3900X
at 66 Celcius. Even on the Threadripper 3970x which has 280
watts of TDP, this was able to handle it at 90 celsius without its stock fans, which is
a pretty great result for a cooler that doesn’t completely cover the thread ripper IHS. So overall, I think that the Neptune 240 is
a nice AIO which you can choose for your next build, it has a similar price point as its
competitors, but it also has a unique design which can look really great in some build,
and it also performs well. I do like the design, the installation is
easy enough, and aside from needing to unscrew the CPU block to make the logo upright, I
do not see anything that is an issue. So let me know what you think about this cooler
