Nexus NHP-2200 Northbridge Cooler

If Nexus' aim was too make a passive, silent heatsink that needed no direct airflow then they haven't quite made the grade. Coupling the NHP-2200 with a toasty Nvidia 650i chipset gave some extremely worrying temperature results in the 70°c range. However, add a small fan to the NHP-2200 and the outcome is quite different.
The design and quality of the heatsink is simply amazing and a credit to Nexus - it's just a shame they didn't provide a graceful way of attaching a fan without the need for elastic bands or other "home-baked" solutions.
I was unable to obtain a UK price from my online searches, but I found it on sale for $19.95 over at cooltechpc, and for €18.95 from SilentPC. This translates to about £10, making it a good buy if you are replacing the heatsink on a lower end chipset.
• Looks fantastic
• Quality built
• Actively cooled it performs brilliantly
•Wide range of mounting options
• Not enough too cool my test bed passively
Thanks to Nexus for providing the NHP-2200 for review.
