As with other Cooler Master AIOs the Nepton comes in a simple but informative box with signature Cooler Master purple flanks, the exterior of which carries details and images of the Nepton 140XL nestled within.

An interesting fact about the egg box recycled cardboard that Cooler Master use is that this type of board represents the last element in the recycling process.  After this the board pulp can be used no more.  Great to see companies ringing the very last out of a material before it is discarded.  It also happens to do a rather good job of protecting its contents so everybody wins.

Aside from the cooler itself which we will come to soon, the box contains the usual assortment of screws and double ended bolts to enable fixing to all relevant Intel and AMD sockets.  You also get a pair of 140mm Cooler Master Jetflo fans, a universal Intel/AMD back plate, a small syringe of TIM and a PWM fan splitter.

Instructions are clear and concise but are a bit of a pain to navigate through as they are essentially one long concertina sheet, much like you might find in a CD box (remember them?)

Although the pair of 140mm fans that come with the 140XL are finished in plain black you shouldn't mistake them for bog standard OEM units. These are Cooler Master Jeflo fans, rated between 800 and 2000 RPM and able to push out a static pressure of  up to 3.5mm H2O.  Both the blades and the body of the units are well made, with the cowling having rubber pads on either side of each of the four mounting holes to reduce vibration.

The Seidon isn't too bad, but the Eisberg range are atrocious.
