Specifications, Availability and Pricing

 

 

The FLC-3000 is a smaller cooler, weighing in at only 450g and is designed for use in mATX builds or HTPC rigs. Nexus tried to pack all they could into the 128mm by 105mm area. From their use of four 6mm heat pipes to the stepped aluminum fins that cover the SkiveTEK heat sink, the FLC-3000 has a lot of features. Nexus even saved a bit more space for those with height clearance issues. This cooler is leaned over at a 30° angle for an overall recommended clearance of 119mm to the inside of the case door.

 

Taking a few minutes to search out this cooler for purchase leads me to a select few sites that actually carry the FLC-3000. While the cooler isn't available at some of the more popular e-tailers, the ones that do carry the Nexus line do have them in stock. While I don't shop regularly at these sites, they aren't exactly obscure e-tailers that you may have reservations about purchasing from.

 

The Neuxs FLC-3000 is available at a couple of e-tailers, such as coolerguys.com and pctoys.com. The FLC-3000 rings in at the register at $54.95 and $64.95, respectively. This is a demand on the wallet for a 92mm cooling solution, as some of the others that we tested sell for as little as $20. Of course, this cooler does have a bunch of nice features and good looks; I as an end user do realize options cost more money. But to say the least, I did suffer from a bit of sticker shock when I saw what these e-tailers were getting for the FLC-3000.
