Nexus LXM-8200 CPU Cooler Review
With most coolers, you get an assortment of accessories. This isn’t the case with the Nexus, you simply get a sachet of thermal paste and the cooler itself. Pre-installed already is the socket 775 mounting clip, ‘push-pin style’.
To test CPU Coolers we simply boot the PC up into Windows Vista and measure temperatures under idle and load states. The temperature is recorded from the CPU’s own diode using SpeedFan.
For idle testing, we leave the PC doing nothing for half an hour and take 3 temperature readings at 10 second intervals after 30mins. We then use the average score from these as the result. When testing at load temperatures, we use a similar method but load both cores of our CPU right to 100% by loading two processes of ‘CPU Burn-In’.
The Nexus is a very good cooler. It performs reasonably well, stays at a low noise level and is quite possibly one of the easiest S775 Intel Coolers to install. At just Ł25, its a good buy for anyone who’s still using their stock Intel cooler and would like something much quieter with a slight boost in performance.
The only downside to the Nexus is its base – laden with grime and fingerprints. This can easily be improved upon and will certainly increase the performance of the cooler slightly if improved.
