Specifications, Availability and Pricing

 

 

The Nexus XiR-2300 is a universal solution working with both AMD and Intel systems. No one will feel left out going back to the AMD 939/940-pin processors. This is important since many people make HTPCs with yesterday's parts that are sitting around gathering dust. In their day, the AMD 939 processors proved to be capable in gaming machines and many have migrated to playing music and movies on enthusiasts' home big screen.

 

Putting a PC in the living room is not a new idea; all you need is some left over parts, cables and a way to make the system silent. The fan on the Nexus XiR-2300 is built for silent operation with a claimed acoustic footprint of 19 dB. Our testing environment is not as sophisticated as that of Nexus', but from the given specification I am expecting to see some really low numbers in our sound pressure test.

 

The MSRP for the Nexus XiR-2300 is pretty high at 59.99 US Dollars, but I was able to find it online for as low as 55.00. This is the same price range as our performance leader, the Noctua NH-12P, so I am looking for some really good performance numbers from this cooler.
