COMPUTEX 2009: Akasa's latest in the fight against heat, or simply to trump the mighty ThermalRight Ultra Extreme, is the Nero S.

With four thick 8mm heatpipes the Nero S is designed for all the latest Intel and AMD sockets and has 46 aluminium fins and Akasa's unique S-Flow fan which it claims delivers "30 percent more airflow" - though we're not clear what it's 30 percent more than.

The addition of another heatpipe isn't the only difference between the Nero S and the original Nero either - this one is a lot fatter too.

The fan almost takes a leaf out of Noctua's book of colour schemes and the fan blades certainly look interesting, to say the least. The quality of the plastic in the fan is certainly higher than we're used to from Akasa, so that's a step in the right direction for a premium product, however we're unsure yet how much it'll be - we'll update you in due course.
