PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
As you can see from ZEROtherm's chart, the Nirvana is fairly tall and massive. Some weight is saved by using aluminum fins in conjunction with the copper base and heatpipes, but at 628 grams, the NV120 is still not as heavy as some of its competition. The 120mm cooling fan is illuminated by two blue LEDs for a touch of visual bling and moves quite a lot of air (at its maximum speed.)
This sporty little fan controller is included with the Nirvana and allows the user to adjust the fan voltage from 5 to 12 volts.
Compatibility is very good, with support for all modern sockets and the latest multi-core processors.
The retail packaging shows off the cooler nicely and promises an easy install with “killer performance.”
The goodies are nestled into an easily opened plastic container to protect the contents during shipping. If you hate those welded plastic capsules that some products come in as much as I do, you'll appreciate this packaging.
