Nexus VCT-9000 Silent Cooler Review
Aftermarket coolers aren't just for those who intend on undertaking obsene overclocks. The traditional heatsink that comes bundled with today's Intel and AMD processors have a number of limitations that inevitably lead to end users purchasing something more capable. While temperatures remain to be the 'make or break' factor, noise levels are just as important. So is your desktop computer whining invariably like a sick puppy? Well look no further as this is what today's review is all about.
Nexus is a name that may not ring a bell for many of you. Formed nearly ten years ago in The Netherlands, Nexus started life as designers of fans and heatsinks. Sporting the goal of "Building a Strong and Reliable Trademark for Silent Computing", Nexus are here to show off their latest offering; the VCT-9000.
So what exactly does Nexus' new cooler have to offer?
