The Nexus LOW-7000 R2 cooler combines some of the most advanced technologies in the market used for CPU coolers. Heatpipes, HOC Technology, SkiveTek and ultra-thin fins combined with a real silent 12cm PWM controlled fan deliver ultimate performance which has never been this quiet before.

LOW coolers are crafted out of the purest aluminum and copper materials. The heatsink covering the heatpipes and the copper base is made using SkiveTek technology. Only 7cm high, the LOW-7000 R2 is an ideal cooler for your HTPC.

  • newegg Heatpipe-On-Core Technology Nexus has the 4 x 6mm heatpipes in direct contact with the CPU core chipset, which allows the heatpipes to absorb the heat from the CPU directly without a base plate interfering with heat transfer. This provides the best possible dissipation possible for the ultimate cooling performance.
  • newegg SkiveTek Heatsink Technology The SkiveTek concept permits the production of heatsinks with a precise and super fine detail. With SkiveTek, a heatsink with a baseplate and fins are constructed out of one piece of pure aluminum or copper. This is done by cutting the material in thin layers, ending the fins in place. No bonding, welding, soldering or adhesive is involved; the joint between fin and base is continuous aluminum or copper.
  • newegg PWM Controlled Fan The 120mm fan is PWM controlled and the speed can vary between 500 and 2000 RPM creating a noise-output of an inaudible 15 dB(A) up till a still truly quiet 24 dB(A).
  • newegg Perfect for HTPCs Only 7cm tall, the Nexus LOW-7000 R2 is ideal for height-constrained cases.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility The Nexus LOW-7000 R2 has broad compatibility with Intel LGA 1366/1156/1155/775 and AMD Socket AM3/ AM2 platforms.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, quality, versitile

Pros: This cooler is fantastic. I put it on an ITX board, and it fits with only one problem. First off, mount it with the copper pipes facing downward. That will give you access to power headers and whatnot at the top of your mobo. The other stipulation is that you need to get memory without a cooling jacket -- otherwise, there won't be enough clearance.

The other reviewers have mentioned a whining noise from the fan and difficulty mounting. For an LGA 1155 socket, I found the mounting to be no more difficult than the next cooler. Don't be fooled. Additionally, one of my primary objectives for my build was next-to-silence noise levels. This thing is really, really quiet and the bundled fan doesn't make any weird noises at all.

Cons: The one problem I'm having is that the copper pipes smash into protruding screws on a video card in the PCI slot. This unit was designed to clear any cards in the first PCI slot underneath the CPU socket, but video cards have screws that stick out the back, and I had the unfortunate luck of having that interfere. Still deciding how to resolve this, but this product would definitely be better if the copper pipes didn't take up so much lateral space.

1 out of 5 eggsMediocre at best

Pros: Works ok. Can barely keep my Sandy Bridge Celeron below 50C with a low-rpm fan.

Cons: For about the same price you can get other coolers which fit better, and work better. Also, I wasn't going to mention the screeching noise of the fan because I thought my fan was defective, but now that I see other reviewers that have the same screeching fans, i'd really stay away from this cooler

Other Thoughts: avoid

2 out of 5 eggsNot really quiet

Pros: Low profile and cooling is decent. I used this in a Silverstone Milo low height case and it fit fine. It keep the CPU temps at or below 61 C running Prime95 at full load with no case fan.

Cons: Fan noise is annoying. It is not load like most fans ... it has a high pitched whining sound that will drive you crazy! I am currently looking for a way to replace the stock fan. The retainer mechanism is a pain. Took me several tries to figure out how to install this (hint on an AM3 socket the clips go in the middle of the cooler block (note slot) and not on the bottom like all of the others I have tried. The supplied Allen wrench does not fit in the space supplied to time the screws ...

Other Thoughts: I have several Nexus products and like them; but, I will never buy another one of these!

5 out of 5 eggsReplacing a Helicopter in an HTPC

Pros: Read reviews before purchasing. Was anxious about mounting. Pleasantly surprised at how easy the install was on an LLG 775. Looks like Nexus has responded to criticism. The fan and heatsink we out of box, assembled and mounted within 20 minutes.

Quiet!!! (how lovely) and low enough profile to fit (with room to spare) in my OrigenAE case.

Cons: Requires both sides of mobo to be accessible. Most cases i would assume this means out of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler, Does what I need

Pros: This is indeed a low profile cooler. I mounted it onto a motherboard which I put into a completely custom fabricated case which needed a low profile cooler. It works fantastic. I'm running an i7 860 OC'ed to 3.33gHz, and the max load temp gets to only 64C.

Cons: Push Pin mounting system. I realize it's supposed to be low profile, but that doesn't mean they couldn't have used a bracket mounting system of some sort to reach underneath the fins.

Other Thoughts: If you want to install your own fan onto the Heatsink, you'll need Silicone Fan Mounts. Because the bracket it underneath the fan and it's shape, you can't screw the fan on and then re mount the holder to the actual heatsink without having to bend it out and then back. Using Silicone Fan Mounts, putting the brackets onto the heatsink, and then mounting the fan works wonders though. I fit a regular sized 120mm fan on there doing that. (Note, you can't use the stock mounts, since they're made for a 120mm fan with a 20mm thickness, when most fans are 25mm thick.)

1 out of 5 eggsYour dogs won't like this cooler

Pros: The only good thing I can come up with for this is that it is indeed low, the same height as the retail CPU fan that comes from Intel. If you an get it onto your motherboard, it does cool...about as well as the stock Intel cooler does.

Cons: First off, it is near impossible to install this CPU cooler. The fins of the cooler make it impossible to get to the latches that hold the CPU cooler to the motherboard. The second thing is that it emits a very high pitched squeal that my dogs and I can hear but other people in the family cannot.

Other Thoughts: I originally wrote a review that said I couldn't get it onto the computer motherboard and that I wanted to throw it across the room. This is a followup. A week later, I was miffed at having spent $60 on this thing to have it sit in a box. So, I took the motherboard out, and struggled for about an hour before I was able to finally get the last latch to hold. Upon powering up the computer, the dogs left the room and I could hear this faint high pitched squeal. I thought it to be something with the power supply and ignored it for about a month. Finally, I got sick of the sound and opened up the case, stuck my finger in the fan to stop it, and the sound went away. I let my finger out of the fan, and the sound came back.

The Stock CPU cools my CPU to average at 39C when idling and 45C when playing Bioshock. The Nexus ran at 39C when idling and 45C when playing Bioshock.

So, the nexus is a door stop now.

1 out of 5 eggsThis may not be the CPU cooler for you!

Pros: I have always liked Nexus products. They make quality parts.

Cons: This cooler is impossible to attach to a Gigabtye GA-P55M-UD4 motherboard. This motherboard has the 1156 CPU socket The brackets that attach to the cooler are made to attach to 3 different Intel sockets so the pushpins won't stay upright. The brackets would work okay if you could get underneath the cooler to engage the pushpins. The pushpins are right up against the bottom side of the cooler making them almost impossible to engage even with the enclosed tool. It would be nearly impossible to attach the cooler because of the design of the motherboard plus if you mount the cooler as they suggest one way covers a single memory slot and the other covers all four! If you ever got the cooler attached you would need to remove it again to remove and install the memory!

Other Thoughts: Make sure this CPU cooler will work on your motherboard before you buy it. It is an expensive part that may not work.

1 out of 5 eggsNothing but frustration

Pros: It is low profile

Cons: First thing I rant into is that this thing is near impossible to get mounted on the motherboard when the board is in a case. You have to take the motherboard out of the case just to get the leverage to latch it in. Second thing is it is off center from the CPU and so covers other heat sinks with very little room to spare. It is so wide that you cannot get your first bank of memory in if this heat sink is in place on an ASUS P6X58D. After removing it to put the memory back in, I couldn't get the latches to latch again so I put the original stock Intel heat sink back on. What a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: I have installed a lot of heatsinks from Zalman and needed something with the lowest profile possible. NewEgg was out of what I wanted so I bought this Nexus unit. It is currently sitting in a box and I am currently restraining myself from kicking it across the room.
