The Heatsink


The heatsink itself works via two heat pipes that draw the heat from the base into the upper rounded fins where convection disperses the warm air into the case.


The first thing that drew my attention to the cooler is that it’s all incredibly shiny. Looks wise this heat sink is very appealing! It’s got a yin-yang style design on the top, which is polished to a very smooth mirror finish. I can only hope that nexus have somehow coated the copper with a fine layer of something to prevent the cooler from tarnishing over time.


The build quality on the NHP-2200 is very solid. Aside from the thin fins, the heatsink feels like it was crafted with care.



While the heatsink is designed to work passively, there is no easy way of attaching a fan to further increase the potential performance. This is an option available on many other passive NB solutions from other manufacturers, and it's a shame to see that Nexus haven't taken this into consideration. This could be considered a disadvantage in some eyes as they may favour performance over silence.

It just looks beautiful, shame it doesn't cool very well passively.

Also it's smaller than I thought it was gonna be when I saw the initial pics.Quote
