The Nexus FLC-3000 R2 Universal CPU Cooler
The R2 at first glance looks very much like the original. It uses the same fin shape and the same fan that we saw the first time. Not a whole lot new here to discuss.
At the bottom you get a bit of a look at the side of the SkiveTek heatsink under the three sections of fins. The smallest section of fins is made up of fifteen fins, the middle section is eleven fins thick, and the largest section is made up of the remaining twenty-six fins.
The heat pipes make it all the way through the top fin, and also here is where the other end of the fan mounting is. If you need to remove the fan, this pair of screws and a matching pair on the other end need removal and the 92mm fan comes right off. If you look under the fins you get a much better look at the fins of the SkiveTek pre-cooler.
A look from the other side shows that it looks just as the other side does. I did add the connection for the fan at the bottom. This 4-pin PWM connection can be plugged into a motherboard header for finite control of the fan.
As the heat pipes leave the base they make two bends to return through the fins at 30° and get spread to distribute heat across the fin area.
Here is where Nexus got serious with the redesign. While the original had a smooth copper base plate, they removed it this time in favour of the HOC. As you can see, the four 6mm heat pipes are milled level, but there are large spaces to fill with thermal paste between the pipes. When it comes time to mount the hardware, loosening the four screws on the edge of the base will allow for them to slide in between this section of the aluminium base and the top SkiveTek heatsink.
