Specifications, Availability and Pricing
With a basic knowledge of the design and concepts in play, let's get into what holds the VCT-9000 together. Starting at the bottom, there are five total heatpipes, four of which have a 6mm diameter, while the center pipe is 8mm. These pipes are Nickel plated to fight corrosion, but the base is milled and exposes the copper underneath, or insert HOC. These pipes are then soldered to a copper spacer plate with a SkyveTek heatsink screwed on the top of it all. The other ends of the pipes lead into a set of 0.3mm fins, a total of 53 of them in three sections and lengths. These allow for the fan to be mounted on an angle.
The angle of the 120mm, blue LED, translucent black fan is done with three principals in mind. The first and most obvious is to cool the 53 fins. Even though the fan is angled, it has no problem getting through the fins. With a clever shape of some of the bottom fins, Nexus created a V-shaped valley for some of the fans flow to be directed onto the SkyveTek "pre-cooler". Last but not least, the angle allows for some of the flow to be utilized on the motherboard for additional cooling in the immediate area of the cooler.
Taking a look at Google shopping, there are still currently no hits for product listings, but there are quite a few of the news blasts I saw about a month ago. Those same news sites list the cooler in the EU market and the listings I have seen for the MSRP have been as high as £50. Basic math doesn't bode well at all for the VCT-9000. That puts it in the $70 USD range to get one anywhere here. Pricing itself against some of the better air coolers on the market may not be such a great idea, but I will let the images and results do the deciding. Let's dive in and see what the VCT-9000 from Nexus has to offer.
