“After the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T release we have taken a look at the cheaper version 1090T. This is the same processor, with the same features, an open multiplicator, only 100 mhz more clock. This little performance improvement you can also set manually on a 1090T, at no additional cost.”

"The Nexus VCT-9000 cooler combines exposed heat pipes directly on the CPU core, SkiveTek and 3 types of ultra-thin fins
with a real silent PWM controlled 12cm fan at a 25 degree angle. The 120mm fan is PWM controlled and the speed varies between an utterly low 500 and 1600 RPM creating the lowest possible noise-output. Further more the fan is fitted with for blue LED's. The 5 heatpipes - one of 8mm and four of 6mm diameter - are fitted using the advanced Heatpipe-On-Core technology.
The Nexus VCT-9000 has 3 different aluminium fins. The bottom section of the fins has a characteristic V-shape. This V-shape allows the air flow generated by the 12cm fan to reach the target area on top of the CPU core for effective cooling. When you compare this solution with side-blowing cpu coolers in the market you notice that this area is not touched by the airflow of most of these models. A clear advantage for the VCT-9000 compared to side-blowers.
Heatpipe technology is the most effective way to quickly transport heat from one side to another. By placing the heatpipes directly on the core of the CPU you make use of this benefit in the most effective way. Heat is absorbed directly from the CPU core.
Many coolers in the market have a baseplate on which the heatpipes are positions. Then there is a baseplate between the heatpipes and the CPU core. This inevitably causes loss of disipation and loss of performance."
