Cooling for your CPU has slowly moved away from the bizarre shapes and sizes hoping to remove an extra degree or two, and shifted to tower coolers which naturally sit above motherboard surface components and provide much more surface area for heat to be lost.
The ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 is no different, and it’s built by a company that have shown their silent coolers to be more than adequate in the past. The quiet 120mm fan and glossy metal finish make this an attractive choice.
