    OCZ Technology Group, Inc. a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory and computer components, today unveiled the OCZ Gladiator and Gladiator Max, the latest CPU cooler line designed for supreme thermal management and efficiency. Combining a distinctive stacked fin array, heat-pipe direct touch (HDT) design, and a large low-noise fan, the Gladiator series is built to take on the cooling challenges of today’s most powerful processors and ensure your system functions at its peak.

    “The new Gladiator coolers take the HDT design from the popular Vendetta series to the next level, with the addition of the latest pillar design to transfer heat even more efficiently up and away from your processor,” said Ryan Edwards, Director of Product Management of the OCZ Technology Group. “With the Gladiator series we are able to offer customers sophisticated coolers for the complete spectrum of applications ranging from mainstream gaming to enthusiast overclocking.”

    Utilizing the proven performance of the latest HDT design, the Gladiator series has direct contact with the processor using four copper heat pipes to ensure the most rapid heat transfer. The unique “folded” fin configuration also helps maximize surface area while maintaining a compact form factor. Whether you are tight on space and need the small 92mm fan size of the Gladiator, or need the ultimate performance of the larger 120mm Gladiator Max, these coolers accommodate all levels of enthusiasts with a variety of case sizes.

    Engineered to aggressively dissipate heat produced by high-speed CPUs, the Gladiator series can tackle any challenge in the overclocking arena. These coolers run quiet courtesy of a large fan mounted with anti-vibration rubber connectors to reduce excess noise, perfect for a media center or office desktop where silence is a top priority. The versatile and user-friendly Gladiator series is compatible with AMD AM2/939/754/755 and Intel 775 sockets and can be installed quickly and easily by end-users at all skill levels. Set at a price point that is friendly to a range of budgets, the Gladiator series proves to be a worthy opponent against even pricier coolers.

    Efficiency, acoustics, power, and affordability make the OCZ Gladiator series an excellent edition to your desktop, providing superior performance with a state-of-the-art design for enthusiasts looking to maintain the stability of their overclocked systems.

    mmm more HDT goodness...

    Seriously though, HDT coolers are... pot luck in some ways. Some coolers do really well, some do slightly worse...

    Take a good product and make it better. Xigmatek already has rubber fan mounts for its coolers though.

    For replacement, just go to their website and e mail them. Or ask sneekypeet who he talked to for the brackets. He could probably help with them.
    I believe I broke one myself.. lol

    As for the fan's themselves... Glad to see another place doing it. I just hope they do better at the 4 pipes then Xigmatek...

    Xigmateks newest 4 pipe was doing well I thought.

    I havent replaced the stock fan on there, but they were a bitch to get through the mount holes anyways. I love my Xigmatek so I wont have a problem getting a OCZ Gladiator Max if I need to. This cpu Im on now will probably either go to my mother or my nephew/brother. Not sure :D

    Well the thing with the S1284,4 pipe one, is that there is two versions of it.... Some how Newegg was able to get the engineering samples of the cooler and the pipes don't lay right onto the CPU like they are suppose to. In my Xig thread with Delta's a m8 throws that out there to me and a Newegg e-mail says he's right.. But, now they should have the right one on Newegg and every other site... But I really don't know....

    T_ski's review even had the wrong one... Only reviews that are past the middle of Aug would have the cooler that is right...
