Nexus VCT-9000 or How Not to Make CPU Coolers
 
We very rarely come across cooling solutions that we would strongly not recommend for purchase. But the new Nexus VCT-9000 cooler is exactly the product you really donít want to mess with. It certainly has advantages, like universal design, simple installation and high-quality quiet fan with LED lighting. However, everything else is definitely on the lows list. We should definitely mention very raw heatsink design where straight plates are combined with an angled heatsink positioning; faulty heatpipe layout inside the heatsink; dummy heatsink above the base that didnít get any thermal compound; horribly executed base with heatpipe direct touch technology that has a very small contact area with the processor heat-spreader and large gaps in the middle of it; simple but very unreliable push-pin retention for LGA775/1156/1366 platforms that canít guarantee high-pressure hold and wonít last long enough; fun shaped casing that limits the coolerís compatibility with mainboards that have heatsinks over their voltage regulator components around the processor socket - all this results into very poor cooling efficiency of the new Nexus product. At last, I should point out high recommended retail price of $50, which makes Nexus VCT-9000 market success even less feasible.
