Nexus LOW-7000 R2 Quiet Low Profile CPU Cooler with 120mm fan
The Nexus LOW-7000 cooler combines some of the most advanced technologies found in today's aftermarket coolers. Heat pipes, HOC- Technology, SkiveTek and ultra-thin fins combined with an extremely quiet 12cm PWM controlled fan, delivers ultimate performance which has never been this quiet before.
LOW coolers are crafted out of the purest aluminium and copper materials. The heat sink covering the heat pipes and the copper base is made using SkiveTek technology. Nexus have managed to apply some of their the best technologies at the most important positions on the cooler to provide excellent cooling for CPU.
The temperature sensor on the fan makes sure the fan speed is always at an optimal lowest speed. The fan speed can vary between 500 and 2000 RPM creating a noise-output of an inaudible 15 dB(A) up to a still very quiet 24 dB(A). And let's not forget that the LOW is only 70mm tall which will make ideal cooper for any HTPC system where space is at a premium.
HOC and SkiveTek explained
Please follow these positioning instructions as much as possible when installing your LOW-7000 CPU cooler into a tower chassis PC Case. The correct positioning guarantees an optimal performance of the heatpipes. When installing the LOW-7000 in a desktop or horizontally oriented PC/HTPC case (where the cooler will be positioned with the fan horizontally) you can choose any positioning method.

Good for AMD - a pain for INTEL
This is a fantastic cooler bringing my running temperature on the an AMD X2 5200+ running at 2.7GHz in a HTPC case. Fitting it is tight and takes a while, but the tool provided makes this in the end quite simple. I bought a second one at the same time to fit to an INTEL socket 775 mATX MB. I found it impossible to fit as there is not enough room under the radiator to grip and push the mounting pins through the MB. After knowing how quite it is on the AMD system I was very disappointed to have to go back to a stock cooler.
