Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 seems to have hit all of the right buzzwords and then some. The cooler uses a 120 x 25mm, blue LED fan that is capable of producing 84.7 CFM at 2,300 RPMs. ZEROtherm claims the fan can hit 39dBA at full speed, so don't look for the fan to be ultra quiet. But to be honest, enthusiast coolers such as the Nirvana are not made for home theater systems. Our testing will show where the fan stands in comparison to other enthusiast coolers.
The base and heat pipes of the cooler are made of copper and should provide a great amount of thermal conductivity. The fins are nickel coated aluminum giving off the gunmetal look. The fins are arranged in a honeycomb style, staggered for better thermal relief.
ZEROtherm lists all of the possible CPU combinations for both AMD and Intel coolers. Since the cooler is listed as being able to dissipate over 150 watts, you wouldn't have a problem cooling the latest and greatest from both AMD and Intel. Overclocking should also not be an issue from either company, even though the Phenom can approach 150 watts when overclocked past 3.0 GHz.
After a quick look around, I was able to find the Nirvana NV120 Premium for 50 Dollars with a 10 Dollar mail-in rebate, making the total cost right around 40. The lowest price I found on PriceGrabber was actually 59.99 without the rebate. The lower price actually takes the cooler down from the privileged enthusiast class and drops it into the enthusiast entry level. We have seen new coolers offered in this area recently; mainly the new core contact coolers from Sunbeamtech and SilenX. ZEROtherm is no stranger to the 40 Dollar market; the ZEN 120 is a strong player here as well.
