Conclusion: The only redeeming quality of the VCT-9000 is its quiet operation, but this is no excuse for its poor cooling ability, as the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced was even quieter, cheaper and cooled far better. The VCT-9000 certainly isn’t worth its asking price.
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.
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.
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...
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).
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.
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
