1. Features, specifications
The new "Nero" (AK-967) CPU cooler is Akasa's proposal keeping your new LGA 1366 processor cool and ready for overclocking. The product is also compatible with the previous LGA 775 socket as well as with AMD's AM2 platform.
- Akasa Nero (AK-967)
The Akasa NERO (AK-967) has a classic design that combines performance and near silent operation. A multi-platform cooler designed for the entire range of Intel and AMD current processors with 3x8mm ultra high capacity U heat pipes are installed with direct CPU contact for rapid heat transfer. The direct contact eliminates a thermal resistance thereby increasing efficiency. Over 46 aluminum profiled fins are available for optimum heat dissipation. A black 120mm PWM fan is mounted using anti-vibration siliconized rubber pins giving quiet cooling.
The product design has been refined to ensure quiet cooling for CPU’s up to 150W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Installation is easy using push-pins (Intel) or cam-lever (AMD) mounting mechanism.
The Akasa NERO can be assembled horizontally or vertically (in desktop or tower chassis) as the heat pipes work independently of installation direction. It supports the following CPU sockets: Intel LGA 775, LGA 1366, AMD Socket 939, AM2, AM2+ and many CPU’s: INTEL Pentium 4, Pentium D, Core2Duo, Core2Quad, Core2Extreme, Core i7, AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon X2, Phenom X3 and Phenom X4. The key features on the Akasa Nero CPU cooler include:
- Three high capacity 8mm U-shape heatpipes with direct CPU contact
- Piano black 12cm fan with PWM
- 46 fins profiled for optimal airflow and heat dissipation
- Siliconized rubber fan mounts for easy installation and ultra quiet performance
