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.
