Nexus introduced the VCT-9000, a new CPU cooler with five direct-touch heatpipes, and an aluminum heatsink that is cooled by a 120mm fan at a 25 degree angle.
More info can be found over here.
The Nexus VCT-9000 cooler combines some of the most advanced technologies in the market used for
CPU coolers: heat pipes directly on the CPU core, SkiveTek and 3 types of ultra-thin fins
combined with a real silent PWM controlled 12cm fan at a 25 degree angle. This type op performance
has never been this quiet before.
The 120mm fan is PWM controlled and the speed varies between an utterly low 500 and 1600 RPM
creating the lowest possible noise-output. Further more the fan is fitted with for blue LED's.
The 5 heatpipes - one of 8mm and four of 6mm diameter - are fitted using the advanced Heatpipe-On-Core
technology to guarantee the fasted heat dissipation possible
The Nexus VCT-9000 has 3 different shape aluminium fins. The bottom section of the fins
has a characteristic V-shape. This V-shape allows the air flow generated by the 12cm fan
to reach the target area on top of the CPU core for effective cooling.
When you compare this solution with side-blowing cpu coolers in the market you notice
that this area is not touched by the airflow of most of these models. A clear advantage
for the VCT-9000 compared to side-blowers.
Five heatpipe design
The Nexus VCT-9000 is equipped with five heatpipes. The center heatpipe which is directly
on the middle of the CPU is 8mm in diameter and provides massive cooling for the heart of
the CPU. On either side of the 8mm heatpipe there are two highly efficient 6mm heatpipes.
Heatpipe technology is the most effective way to quickly transport heat from one side
to another. By placing the heatpipes directly on the core of the CPU you make use of
this benefit in the most effective way. Heat is absorbed directly from the CPU core.
Many coolers in the market have a baseplate on which the heatpipes are positions. Then
there is a baseplate between the heatpipes and the CPU core. This inevitably causes
loss of disipation and loss of performance.
