There was time when water cooling a PC was considered as extreme and expensive specially in India, where availability of custom water cooling parts were very rear and importing them to India was a great pain. But now there are tens of AIO(All-in-One) closed loop liquid cooling solutions available in India, with easy installation and requires no maintenance at all.

Today we are having a comparison between two of them Corsair H100i and Cooler Master Nepton 240M. Both are having identical physical characteristics, so comparison will be interesting.

Below are the lists of Specifications and Features for both coolers

Features - 240M

  • Factory filled with coolant, then sealed and pressure tested - requires zero maintenance for years
  • Waterblock made with UltraFine Micro Channels to enlarge the contact surface between cold plate and coolant
  • Durable and powerful water pump – dissipates heat effectively and maintains temperatures through stable water circulation
  • Performance 240mm radiator is designed for handling high wattage overclocked CPU
  • Double 120mm PWM fans with a wide RPM range to fine tune and balance fan noise and performance

Features - H100i

  • Corsair Link monitoring and control - Monitor temperature and control lighting and fan speed on your screen. No additional hardware is necessary
  • Entirely self-contained - Hydro Series H100i comes pre-filled, and never needs refilling or priming.
  • Tool-free multiplatform magnetic mounting bracket kit - The modular design makes installation simpler, and it’s compatible with Intel and AMD processors.
  • Large-diameter, low permeability tubing - Minimal coolant evaporation helps ensure long life, and the resilient material offers both high flexibility and excellent leak protection.
