XIGMATEK Launches Achilles Cooler

XIGMATEK has launched a new direct-touch heatpipe cooler branded Achilles, which is compatible with Intel Socket 775 processors and AMD Socket 754 and newer processors. The direct-touch heatpipes allow for superior heat transfer and improved cooling capabilities, with the cooler boasting a 120mm fan with a noise level of 20.64 dBA. The heatsink comes equipped with four U-type heatpipes, whilst the fan features anti-vibration rubber clips to help minimise noise and four white LEDs.

It doesnt. There is virtually no perforce difference that is observable due to its really really really really small heat resistance.
How would you know?:wtf:


Buy it and lap the nickel plating off and see if there is a difference.:laugh:

In anycase, I still dont think it is right to name it Achilles.. Its kinda like saying there is a weakness to the product.

The Achilles would be the stock fan. The Black ryan fans that DanishDevil is doing a bulk order of would do great with this product! :D

Then it would have no "Achilles heel". ;)

Get it right, a name like this means its extremely potent in every aspect with few flaws. Lets see TRUE could be a normal person, vs this. The normal person is easily killable, Achilles only at one point (which is pretty damn hard).
