Xigmatek Ready with Carbonado CPU Cooler

Xigmatek is ready with a new CPU cooler for the season, the Xigmatek Carbonado (S1284V). This tower-design CPU cooler with heatpipe direct touch (HDT) technology sports a slightly asymmetric design with its aluminum fin design and the placement of the four 8 mm heatpipes, which takes shape accordingly on the CPU contact base, working towards increasing the surface contact area. The main unit measures 120 (W) x 60 (H) x 159 (D) mm, weighing 660 g. It comes bundled with a 120 mm fan with anti-vibration retention. The fan is white LED illuminated, and spins at speeds between 1000 ~ 2200 rpm. It supports all current CPU sockets including LGA-1366, LGA-1156, LGA-775, and AMD AM3/AM2+. For AMD sockets the cooler includes a tool-free retention module. It will be available in the weeks to come.

If you mount it so the height is 60 mm then it will not work ;)

i still have a xig s1283 lol

everything they bring out is only slightly better or it has some new coat of paint

only difference between balder sd1283 and the dark knight s1283v is that the blader can do the same cooling with less fin area and being pre lapped

arnt the achilles s1284w better for AMD? i dont know but thats what i heard im asking because im not sure

It looks pretty cool though I mean they cant do too much in HDT department with their coolers. Maybe offer a TEC module like the V10 does.

They need to reduce the gaps between the heatpipes. Preferably, they should be as close to gapless as possible.

Damn Balder SD1283's need to start popping up on more shelves... there's only 1 place you can get it from.

You could just fill the cracks with thermal paste.

I dont understand why the heatpipes can't be aligned without gaps... The aluminium block restricts the use of certain TIM's like Coollaboratory Liquid Pro, that can't be used with aluminium.

Because that much thermal paste actually starts to behave like an insulator.
