AK-967 Nero Direct Contact Heatpipe CPU Cooler (AM2/AM2+/939/LGA775/LGA1366)

Akasa NERO classic design combines peak performance and near silent operation. A multi-platform cooler designed for the entire range of Intel and AMD current processors. 3 x 8mm ultra high capacity U heatpipes are installed with direct CPU contact for rapid heat transfer. Direct contact eliminates a thermal resistance thereby increasing efficiency. 46 high grade aluminium profiled fins ensure optimum heat dissipation. A piano black 120mm PWM fan is mounted using anti-vibration siliconized rubber pins giving whisper quiet cooling. The product design has been refined to ensure ultra quiet and exceptional cooling for CPU’s up to 150W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Installation is easy using push-pins (Intel) or cam-lever (AMD) mounting mechanism. Akasa NERO can be assembled horizontally or vertically (in desktop or tower chassis) as the heatpipes work independently of installation direction.

Picked up today and shaved 10c of my OC temps now idle at 29 excellent cooler no regrets

Great Cooling Fan and Overclockign Tool

This is a great fan, but BIG! So make sure that your case can fit it in. Mine wouldn't so i had to persuadde my case with a hammer...

Before I installed this my Q6600 @ 2.4GHz with stock cooling temps. were:

idle: 48 - 52 *C
load: 75 - 80 *C

Now with this fan:

idle: 28 - 30 *C
load: 45 - 48 *C

I've overclocked it to 3GHz (333 x 9 @ 1.35v) and get these temps:

idle: 38 - 40 *C
load: 53 - 55 *C

Nice and Quiet but Big

Excellent cooler. The noise level out of my PC is acceptable, and is a lot quieter than my previous cooler.

The only problem is that is too big, now I can't even close my pc case, but that's not important.

Overall it a really good cooler.

Tall, Silver and Handsome

This cooler takes off aroud 10c off your stock cooler temps.

This is a TALL cooler, it fitted perfectly on to my P6TD Deluxe in an Antec P183 case with around 1/2" to spare from the side panel.

Cooler is rated as THE BEST overall cooler for the X58 chipset! Go for it!

Great Value for Money

I'm running an Intel Q6700 which I have managed to overclock to 3.3ghz and this HSF keeps my CPU very cool under load so far temps haven't surpassed 55c when running Prime95 for a good 20 minutes.

As for 'fitting issues' it took me all of 10 minutes to fit this cooler but that was with the motherboard out of the case but the installation was very straight forward. The push pins work very well, when fitting this I would advise you to take the motherboard out of the case and place on it on raised surface (prop the corners up on boxes just so there is a gap between the motherboard and the desk) as it makes installation a lot easier.

Overall this is the best value for money HSF since the Arctic Freezer Pro 7 came along 3 years ago. The only downside side is the although the fan is quite most of the time when your PC is idling it's not silent but any means but it's nothing major as you can always replace the fan if you want.

Brilliant cooler
easy to fit

rly good

only downside is that it is a little,,, large
i got it in my antac 902 case no problem tho i had to not install the case side door fan
tho unless your overclocking to the extreme and u got your pc next to your oven you wont miss the side door fan
