Akasa AK-967 (Nero)

Post by Googly_Eyes » Fri Feb 06, 2009 11:37 pm

Has anyone had any experience with this cooler? I've read the SPCR on the 965 about a year ago. Will SPCR be doing another review on the 967?

I'm just curious because according to frostytech it runs at 31.4dB - 39.3dB
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.c ... 354&page=3 which they list among the quietest they tested. I'm not sure how accurate frostytech's noise tests are compared to SPCR though. :?:

I would be interested in this aswell. According to that review it's a better product than the Xigmatek S1283 (which gives similar temps at 10dBA benefit when using included fans) and Xigmatek S1284.

Akasa AK967:

The aluminum fins measure 0.3mm thick and are spaced 2.0mm apart.

Xigmatech S1283:

The aluminum fins measure 0.35mm thick and are spaced 1.75mm apart.
I was also interested in the OCZ Vendetta 2 that has the same fins as the Xigmatech S1283, but in that site gets lower results.
