    Akasa is updating its cooling offer with a new solution aimed at HTPCs, a low profile CPU cooler called Nero LX. Codenamed AK-CC4011EP01, Akasa's creation measures 120 (W) x 120 (D) x 59 (H) mm, it weights 298 grams and has aluminum fins, four direct contact copper heatpipes, and a 120 mm PWM fan that operates at 600 to 1900 RPM (11.50 - 31.50 dBA sound output).

    The yet unpriced and undated Nero LX supports Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD Socket AM2(+)/AM3/FM1 processors.

    I have used to connect Akasa with relatively cheap stuff, but this looks extremely good. I guess you can swap the included fan with another 12mm thick Scythe for example. I hope the price is fair to their standard for budget and I might snag one of those, if available at home.

    Quite nice replacement for Scythe Big Shuriken.

    So simple to install. Doesn't even require mounting hardware.

    You'd be surprised how poweful magnets can be. I almost hurt myself several times while testing with 2 super strong neodym magnets. And i think one of the closed loop coolers is also using magnets to attach the pump itself. Not sure which one though, probably some newer Corsair Hydro...
