Akasa Nero AK-967 CPU cooler review
While upgrading your system to something new, shiny and sporting all of the latest technologies is almost always a joyous and exciting thing, there are always some down sides to making such a leap, and when that upgrade involved a change of CPU socket upgrading your CPU cooler is often towards the top of the list of frustrations.
With Intel's LGA 775 socket having enjoyed such a long life, there are now so many coolers for said socket type that you're very much spoiled for choice when it comes to moving away from Intel's horrible little stock cooler, with every price point and manner of cooling solution well represented in the market. However, the introduction of Core i7 parts has also seen a move to Socket LGA 1366, which in turn means that the entire CPU cooling ecosystem will have to adjust to support this new socket and the processors that sit upon it.
Today, we'll be taking a look at the very first Socket LGA 1366 cooler to enter our review dungeon, courtesy of Akasa and their Nero AK-967 offering (which also supports Socket LGA 775 and AM2 processors incidentally). What can it offer to tempt users away from Intel's own stock cooler? We check it out.
