Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The NV120 PWM follows form with its copper base and four 6mm heat pipes all the way down to the aluminum fins. Where the Nirvana stands out from the rest of the ZEROtherm lineup is in the complete coating of chrome and nickel. Weighing in at 638 grams brings its overall weight down from the ZEN series. I account to the lack of all the excess plastic of the fan and just a touch less fin area to most of the weight loss. While the fins do resemble the ZEN, the Nirvana is coated as well as "wings" on the edges to help add fin area and protect one from the fan.
Speaking of the fan, this open air design does leave two ends open, so watch those fingers. Otherwise the fan is pretty nice. The hub houses two blue LED's that light up when in use and offers up to 60 CFM of cooling power. While this cooler is rated for over 150W, the lower CFM may make this not the premium answer for that solution.
Finding this cooler in the U.S. is pretty tough currently. I was able to locate one shop that, while on Google showed stock of it for $77, when I clicked the link, the site was temporarily down. Continuing on my search I did find that the NV120 PWM is widely available in the Australian market anywhere in the realm of 80-120 AUD. Even further investigations showed the EU market also has this in stock and about at the same price point as the AU market. Converting that over dollar for dollar scares me a bit! Even the $77 USD price I found was a bit excessive in my opinion.
