Installation Tips

The cooler installs in exactly the same manner as the other four ZEROtherm models we have already talked about in this article. First you need to pick one of the two available retention brackets and attach them to the base of Nirvana NV120 Premium cooler with the bundled screws:

 

Both types of retention press 638g of Nirvana securely to the CPU heat-spreaders. If the cooler needs to be installed onto an LGA 775 mainboard, it may be tricky to tighten the screws on the same side as the fan. In this case you will need a long screw-driver, because the fan blades are right above the screws and I couldn’t figure out a way to remove the fan.

When the whole thing is inside the system case already, the cooler doesn’t get in the way of chipset heatsinks as well as mainboard voltage regulator components it will also coexist just fine with tall memory heat-spreaders:

 

And two blue LEDs highlighting the working fan will definitely be a pleasing sight for modding fans:

This beauty is priced at $39.99. Without the discounts and rebates the cooler would sell for $59.90.
