Xigmatek Launches Thor's Hammer Heat-Pipe Processor Cooler

Cooling company Xigmatek has released Thor's Hammer - a new high-end processor cooler. Aside from its unusual name, Thor's Hammer covers all the basics of today's heat-pipe coolers. It measures 120 x 50 x 159 mm, weights exactly half a kilo, and can be equipped with up to two 120mm fans. It is constructed out of many aluminum fins attached to four 8mm and three 6mm U-shaped heatpipes that are in direct contact with the CPU. The Xigmatek Thor's Hammer is designed for Socket 754, 939, AM2/AM2+, LGA 775 and Core i7 1366. It is priced at 56.90 Euro.

Despite the fact that there are more expensive offerings from companys like TR, this is quite a bit more expensive than Xigmatek's other products

A TRUE Black here costs around £40 (roughly €40+).

I would buy a Xigmatek S1284 over a TRUE any day. HDT FTW.

TRUE is #1 but not worth the price.

I don't care about weight that much because it won't do any serious dmg. I care about size more.

But how does 2 same coolers ( but color ) come 2nd and 4th ?. Does the paint they use make such a difference ?.
iirc, the finish they added to the dark knight caused a slight drop in cooling performance over the standard S1283
