FrostyTech
13 December 2010
  • Summary: Frostytech is not going to waste your time by leaving the most important information till the very end of this review - the Nexus VCT-9000 heatsink is an interesting looking thermal solution, but it fails completely in its execution. Nexus have manufactured the VCT-9000 heatsink poorly, resulting in uneven exposed heatpipes that may not contact the processor properly.

Nexus VCT-9000 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
14 April 2010
  • Summary: What can we say about a cooler that is expensive, has a poor cooling performance and can even damage your motherboard? The only strong point on Nexus VCT-9000 is its looks, unique and nice. Actually, we could also say it has a very quiet fan, even at full speed. But there's no advantage on a pretty and quiet cooler if it does not fulfill its primary function: to cool down the CPU. Besides that, its holding system needs to be completely redesigned by the manufacturer.

  • Excerpt: It has been quite some time since I have seen a cooler from Nexus cross my desk. But alas, they have released a new cooler that uses an older design idea that I remember in the FLC-3000 . But it seems they definitely went back to the drawing board and reconfigured the layout, moved the fan on top of the cooler instead of inside it, just to hit a couple of key points. The cooler we are going to see also keeps the angled approach to cooling.

Nexus VCT-9000 Silent CPU cooler

XtremeComputing
21 June 2011
  • Excerpt: For this review I will be looking at another product from our friends over at Nexus. The product under the spot light today is a new CPU cooler in the shape of the VCT-9000.  As i have looked at a few Nexus cooling products before I have fairly high expectations, and I am pretty sure I won’t be disappointed.
  • Pros: Excellent cooling capabilities., Silent at slightly lower speeds and very quiet even at maximum speed., Looks good (in my opinion).
  • Cons: Awkward to fit (but then most aftermarket Intel coolers are).

Nexus VCT-9000 Silent Cooler Review

Overclock3D
9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Today Nexus have shown us a very mature product. We were impressed by it's quality construction, ease of installation and low noise. It is not uncommon for CPU Coolers to come bundled with poor quality fans or none at all. Quality fans may set you back as much as £15 a pop and soon enough, the overall outlay for your CPU cooler adds up very quickly. Thankfully the VCT-9000 saves you the trouble by including an excellent fan along with rubber vibration dampening fittings.
  • Pros: Silent Operation, Multi Socket Support, Ease of Installation

  • Conclusion: To sum up, the Nexus VCT-9000 offers medium to low performance, it is extremely quiet and needs your attention during installation. We would like to see an improved version of the product in the future.
  • Cons: Performance is low compared with other products, Highly priced for what it offers, Be careful with the installation if you are having an Asus P6T Deluxe
