Xigmatek Introduces the Aegir SD128264 CPU Cooler

Xigmatek today introduced its Aegir SD128264 CPU cooler. While it looks like yet another tower-design CPU cooler with push-pull ventilation, Xigmatek implemented a new technology in this cooler, which it calls "Double Layer with Heat-pipe Direct Touch" or DLHDT. The design involves four heatpipes, of which two are 8 mm thick and two are 6 mm thick (alternating), making direct contact with the processor, with another set of two heatpipes making direct contact with these four HDT heat pipes, so that some of the processor's heat is indirectly offloaded to those heatpipes between the two sets of heat pipes. In all, the six heat pipes disperse heat to various parts of the aluminum fins.

The unit measures 120(W) x 120(H) x 25(D) mm, weighing 630 g. Air circulation is care of two 120 mm fans that guide air through the aluminum fin array at speeds between 1,000 and 2,200 rpm, with a noise level of 20 dBA. The fans are fitted with white LEDs. The cooler supports all current CPU socket types, including LGA1366, LGA1156, AM3/AM2(+), and LGA775. Xigmatek unfortunately, did not give out pricing or availability information.

Haha, yeah you said it, it was the first thing that came to my mind too! Was tired of seeing knock offs. Pity they didn't ditch the leds though, it looks cool at first, but then gets annoying after some time. :laugh:

It may not be anymore efficient but it'll perform at the very least like other Xigmatek coolers.

They should have flashing LED's next time, it would look very pretty

It's going to be better than a kick in the balls at any rate.

I imagine this will be a more efficient way of dissipating a bit extra than say putting a tiny heatsink on the baseplate like some people are doing.

now its just a case of doing both and they've got a winner!

incremental updates FTW! MAXIMISE PROFITS!

It seems like all the dimensions are wrong unless it is for the fan on it. 120 mm tall, not likely.

I do like Xigmatek coolers. Looks nice though I still want that Thor's Hammer to try out.

I have used the thors hammer.......I still have it too. I CANNOT recommend it however.

It is a nightmare to install and to get the fans mounted on it. And it doesn't really cool any better than the S1284.

Only thing I'd recommend a thor for might be an oil build. The fins seem spread apart more than on other coolers which might lend itself better to a fluid.... but that's just hypothetical.

Yeah unless there talking about the fin assembly and even that looks wrong too. Height looks 120 width looks slightly more that the fan...
