Akasa Nero (AK-967) CPU Cooler

2. What's in box

The Akasa Nero comes in a small sized box . The retail price of the AK-967 is around $38~$45, as found at several online stores.

Opening the box unveils a very well packaged internal, everything is surrounded by a plastic hard foam that keeps the product in place and secure during transportation.

The middle-sized cooler 160mm x 120mm 54mm (H x W x D) features siliconized rubber fan mounts for easy installation and quiet performance, as you can see in the picture below:

The cooler uses 46 fins profiled for optimal airflow and heat dissipation. Three 8mm full copper heat pipes with U-shape are linking the array of the fins to the base, offering direct contact with the CPU:

The 120mm fan support the PWM function and rotate at 500~1500 R.P.M. This speed is high but still, we have seen even faster fans. Let's wait and see the actual performance of the fan later in this review.

The retail package includes mounting clips for the various supported sockets, thermal paste and two mounting screws for the Intel sockets.

The 120mm fan can be easily installed by just pulling the rubber absorbers through the two holes of the fan.

Installing the cooler itself is also simple. The first step is to mount the clips for your Intel/AMD CPU. In our case we used the LGA 1366 clips and we secured them on the bottom side of the cooler using the includes two screws. Then you just push the four clips down until they lock on your motherboard. It would be better to do this procedure before you mount the fan on the cooler.
