Nexus was founded at 2000 with a simple goal, to minimize noise and have a better thermal performance.
Lets see the packaging!
The box is very simple, with the Nexus logo on top.
From the side we can see the cooler through a transparent window
At the one side there are the features of LOW-7000
At the other side we can find the specifications
The cooler is well protected

From the side we can see the 4 heatpipes and skive-tek base.
From under we have a look at the fins
Some care must be taken if we are interested to buy this cooler,because the height is very low, and this can cause problems with motherboards that have tall heatsinks.For example you can check below the problem with a DFI motherboard.
Now let's go to the testing!
The test will be done using peltier modules, as they provide the most accurate readings by having a steady heat load.
Test will be done using 3 heat loads, 45.6,91.2 and 136.8 watt.
We can see that at low heat loads it performs very well if we consider its size.At high wattage as expected the performance drops, this is not a problem because there is no chance for a HTPC to exceed 100w of thermal load on the cpu.
