Nexus Unveils Low-profile LGA 1366 Compatible CPU Cooler

The Dutch PC component cooling and power specialist, Nexus revealed its second CPU cooler that supports the upcoming 1366-pin Land Grid Array (LGA-1366) socket from Intel, called Low 7000. The cooler boasts of great cooling efficiency while being low-profile. It stands tall at only 7 cm while spreading its heat across a 138 x 123 mm aluminum fin array, to which heat is conducted by four copper heat-pipes that draw heat from the CPU contact. Interestingly, the cooler is backwards compatible with LGA-775 processors with the necessary attachments provided for that.

The 120 mm PWM-controlled fan spins at speeds between 500 to 2000 RPM and claims to have a low noise level between 15 to 24 dB depending on the speed. For details, please visit the Nexus website.

interesting arrangement of the fan and the heat sink. Surely the best arrangement is to have the sink in the middle of the fan?

Looks good, but wouldn't work well in my case though.

Id like to see some results from testing. Awesome looking but I think Whitelotus is right. Perhaps a fan on top and a fan on bottom to "sandwich" the heatsink.

I would be interested in some reviews. If it does good I may get it. I'm still in the market.

no. theres a deadspot in the middle of the fan :P

this looks good, its a low profile heatsink with copper parts. Should outperform the stock cooler (if not by much) whilst being a lot quieter :)

if it matches the stock cooler in performance, but its shorter and quieter the HTPC crowd will love it

Sorry but I can't see it performing as poorly as the stock fan on my E8500. I know it will be a lot quieter.

+1 on that. Also would be ideal for other SFF, low-noise applications such as a DAW :)
