I took a look back to see just how long ago it had been since we took a look at the original FLC-3000, and to my surprise, it had been quite some time. In fact, it was one of the first coolers I reviewed for TweakTown, so that might be why I was a little fuzzy on the January of 2009 date. From what I can recall going back over the review, the cooler performed pretty good in its day, but by today's standards, and much warmer processors, the FLC-3000 needed some love to keep pace. So Nexus went to the drawing board and rehashed an older work horse to compete with the demand.
Most of the aspects of the FLC-3000 R2 are what you remember. Three sections of fins slid onto heatpipes that run at a 30° angle. The principle behind this concept is a three-pronged attack. It offers more surface area in the fins than most coolers that blow air directly at the CPU, and this should help produce much better results than a stock cooler. The second benefit is the lack of girth of the FLC-3000, so if you have tight confines for a CPU cooler, this can step in to help. The third reason for the angular design is to still allow air to blow onto the power management of the motherboard to help keep all of the components cool.
Along with keeping the basic form of the FLC-3000, the R2 does bring some changes. For one, the mounting hardware has been modified and simplified to use with both AMD and Intel processors. The second and most drastic change comes in the redesigned base and the implementation of HOC technology. Gone is the polished copper base, and left in its place are four heat pipes that make "Heat pipe On Core" contact with the processor. Enough talking about the changes already! I'm sure you are as ready as I am to see these changes and put them to the test.
