APACK ZEROtherm processor cooler review : BTF80 BTF90 BTF92 O.E BTF95 fanless and nirvana NV120 premium



We will check today Zerotherm processors cooler .

  • ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E.

In this review we will examine immediately three cooler APACK zEROtherm, which are very close each to other. Two models zEROtherm BTF80 and ZEROtherm BTF90  are practically twins and are distinguished only by the material radiator used ( BTF80  aluminum  and in BTF90  copper); therefore here we will study only BTF80.

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

On the face side there is information about supported processor socket  . On the reverse and lateral sides it is possible to reveal technical characteristics, and also the comparison with other cooler  models :

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

This cooler (APACK zEROtherm) was made in Korea.

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

Each cooler come coupled with the following components:

Cooling unit are just beautiful.

The cooling systems BTF80/90 and BTF92 is identical. There are four copper thermal tubes with  6 mm diameter .

The sizes of  BTF80/90 models are identical ( 100 x 94 x 77 mm ) with 458 and 678 grams weight , and here BTF92  is larger : its overall sizes are equal to 108 x 81 x 128 mm with 638 grams weight  .

Those cooler are cooled by standard size fans 92 X 25 mm:

The models BTF80/90 use identical fan with speed control support  (PWM). Thus, the fan speed is regulated automatically in the range 750 ~ 2 500 (±10%) rp/min with the maximum noise level  27 dB and air flow 42.8 CFM. The cooler model BTF92 O.E  (O.E = OverClocker edition) got the increased size and also better fan, the rotation speed here varies in the range 1000 ~ 2 300 (±10%) rp/min ( note in practice, the fan speed is even higher than the indicated in specifications 2 300 rp/min, and it is ~3 060 rp/min ).

The  copper base make contacts immediately with 8 thermal tubes,.

Those cooler are compatible with most up to date AMD and Intel processor .

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E
ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

All three models has compact base; therefore there is no problem in installation in deferent motherboard :

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

ZEROtherm BTF80/BTF90/BTF92 O.E

The recommended cost of those coolers are : BTF80/90 Ė 30.99/31.99 dollars, and BTF92 O.E. 35.99 US dollars.

  • ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

Here Accessories are located all in the same box :

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

As it is clear form the name ZEROtherm BTF95 is the passive cooler model , There is no fan:

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

This cooler is very beautiful and the radiator form has the same construction as above,  it differ only in terms of smaller quantity of copper cooling fins (32 pieces) instead of (42):

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

The design change is completely logical here, with no fan this cooler use the case airflow  .

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless
ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

Here the number of thermal tubes is the same as in BTF92 O.E.:

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

This cooler Weight, is less than BTF92 O.E , It is only 510 grams.

ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless

The recommended cost of such cooler is 33.99 dollars.

  • ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

Well and finally the high end cooler APACK zEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium :

ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium
ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

This cooling system just as previous models, was made in Korea.

This cooler is exceptionally beautiful in our view : -)

ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

The massive radiator in nirvana NV120 premium is collected by 44 aluminum edges with 0.3 mm thickness  , There is four copper thermal tubes with 6 mm diameter.

ZEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium

Here is the honeycomb structure : nonlinear arrangement of edges   :

Due to this structure , in the opinion of APACK zEROtherm engineers ,  the air flow  and the effectiveness of heat withdrawal grow :

Here is the base witch make direct contact with thermal tubes :

The quality of copper used in this cooler base is excellent :

The installation procedure of this cooler is analogous to models examined above :

This cooler do not cause any problem in installation :

The recommended cost of this cooler is only 39.99 US dollars (with reduction). Without reductions the cooler cost $59.9.

2. Test configuration

The configuration of system consisted on the following components:

  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA- X 38- DQ6 (Intel x38), LGA 775, BIOS F8D;
  • Processor: Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650, 3.0 GHz, 1.25 in, L2 2 x 6 mb., FSB: 333 MHz x 4, (Yorkfield, C0);
  • Thermal-interface: Arctic silver 5;
  • Video card: LeadTek winFast PC8800 GTS 512 mb/256 bits, @756/1877/2052 MHz;
  • Video card Cooling system : Arctic cooling accelero S1 + Turbo module;
  • Memory:
    • 2 x 1024 mb. DDR2 corsair dominator TWIN2X2048-9136C5D (1142 MHz/5-5-5-18/2.1 V);
    • 2 x 1024 mb. DDR2 CSXO-XAC-1200-2GB-KIT DIABLO (1200 MHz/5-5-5-16/2.4 v);
  • HDD Disk : SATA- II 500 Gb, Samsung HD501LJ, 7200 rp/min, 16 mb., NCQ;
  • Optical Drive: SATA- II DVD RAM & DVD±R/RW & CD±RW samsung SH-S183L;
  • Case: ATX ASUS ASCOT 6AR 2B black&Silver  
  • Control panel and monitoring: Zalman ZM-MFC2;
  • Power unit: Enermax galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000 watts

The weakest cooling system succeeded to overclock the four core processor  to 4.0 GHz with 1.6 v .

All tests were under Windows XP professional edition SP2. For temperature monitoring we used the utility SpeedFan.

All technologies of automatic fan speed adjustment were switched off  . 

We used OCCT (OverClock checking tool) version 1.1.1b in peak load mode , with 23- minute testing period :

Room temperature during the test was controlled by electronic thermometer, in was maintained in the range 24.5 ~ 25 degree Celsius . I

  • the effectiveness of cooling systems

Here is the result obtained :

First we note the minimum difference in temperature  between aluminum zEROtherm BTF80 and copper model BTF90.

In addition the overclocker model zEROtherm BTF92 O.E has about the same performance as other two cooler.

The cooler zEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium show better result and this is logical. But here Nirvana about equal  to super-cooler thermalright ultra-120 eXtreme.

But where is the result of ZEROtherm BTF95 fanless? This passive cooling system was not able to overclock the four core processor to 4 gigahertz. For such propose BTF95 fanless was not developed. But here it is able to cool intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 at default setting and with peak temperature 68 degree Celsius:

In addition zEROtherm BTF95 fanless is able to overclock the four core processor to 3.41 GHz :

This is completely worthy results for such decorative cooler.

  • Noise level measurement 

The noise level results are completely regular in all case .

Conclusion

zEROtherm nirvana NV120 premium with only four thermal tubes ( diameter 6 mm ) demonstrate the same effectiveness as Thermalright ultra-120 eXtreme. There is no Deficiencies;
