- Nexus goes H2O

Dutch founded "Nexus Technology" (reknowned for their Real Silent series of power supplies and other various silent pc products), have now covered new ground with the release of their "H2OTEK" water blocks. Two new blocks have been introduced off the bat, the H2O-2000 (designed for AMD XP/64 and Pentium processors) and H2O-6000 which is designed to be used on a wide range of graphics cards. The press release can be found here, and the official website here folks.

With processors growing hotter and hotter we may need to turn to alternative cooling solutions besides air cooling. Therefore Nexus is exploring water cooling solutions and has dedicated some engineers on project "H2OTEK" to jump into deep waters and get the best out of water cooling.

The H2O-2000 is the Nexus water block solution for AMD XP, AMD 64 and Intel Pentium 4 processors. The H2O-2000 CPU water block has an extreme high flow rate because of its sophisticated copper base structure design. And with its transparent acryl top cover you will be able to see the water rushing through the block. The H2O-2000 has one centre inlet directly on the CPU die area and two outlets for the best possible flow rate and cooling.
