Ahh xigmatek. Looks the same as most of their stuff, but probably more compatible and more heatpipes? Cant go wrong with more heatpipes.
Explaining Xigmatek's naming convention would be nice here, eg. 128264 stands for 12cm fan, 2 of 8mm pipes and 4 6mm pipes.
How does this compare to something like the dark knight? Meant to be under it or replace it?
EDIT* Dang, that price.
Aegir's competitors (in its price-band) are NH-D14, SuperMega[halems], and the CNPS9900 MAX from this review. Dark Knight is more of a $45~$55 cooler.
it costs the same as corsair h50...
And beats the H50 without breaking a sweat.
Xigmatek has many nice stuff, i got HDT series and it performs well on my X4
just (maybe) many their coolers have kinda same form
Well, there is only 1 "form" which is good currently, and that's the "many heatpipes with a large tower with many fins" design, so its not surprising that they look the same.
Im going to try and get my friend to buy this cooler. he got a core i5 750 a couple months ago and he has a VID of 1.11v. I was like dude we got to get you and new cooler to overclock this thing to the moon and he was like alright later.
Very nice and great temps I would liketo see this compared to the Megalahems and NH D14
I dug it and posted it on my FB
