Introduction:

The CPU or central processing unit is known as the heart and soul of most computer systems. Technology dictates that as consumers we witness advancement in terms of design and power every two years. Intel and AMD are both the current forerunners in the processor market with each company releasing new products every year. In order to keep, these processors’ running at their optimum levels requires a combination of good thermal paste and a reliable heatsink cooler. Nexus Technology has built a fine reputation for itself by offering silent PC products of high quality and performance. The company was established in 2000 in the Netherlands by a group of experts on heat conductivity and noise reduction. Their goal has been to build a strong and reliable trademark for silent computing. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the AXP-3200 SkiveTek, a CPU cooler solution designed for the AMD Socket A/462 and Intel Socket 370 platform.
