Nexus has today introduced its FLC-3000 CPU cooler which not only works with current Intel Socket 775 processors and AMD AM2 processors, but is also compatible with the upcoming Socket 1366 which is what codenamed Nehalem Core i7 processors will use when released a little later on.

The FLC-3000 CPU cooler uses a mix of copper and aluminum to do its task, includes four 6mm copper heat pipes, three types of ultra-thin aluminum fins and a 92mm PWM controlled fan that operates between 900 and 2500 RPM creating a noise-output of only 15dBA up till a still truly quiet and impressive 24dBA. The fan even has two funky orange LEDs inside to spice things up inside your case.

GIGABYTE created a CPU cooler called the Volar sometime ago which was made with the fan sitting on an angle as to not only cool the CPU but also MOSFETS and other parts in the area. The FLC-3000 also employs a similar concept with the cooler on a 30 degree angle, hence creating a perfect flow over the motherboard.


You can find out more details on the cooler over at the Nexus product page, which is right here.
