Discussion in 'Overclocking & Cooling' started by Basard, Feb 16, 2008.
Hey check it out, my dream finally came true. Newegg sells Xigmatek stuff!
how good are they?
They are pretty good.... xbitlabs has a review of their 120mm HDT cooler... It's almost as good as the Thermalright Ultra 120, or whatever that big beefy is called, but the Xigmatek is only like 40 bucks after shipping. They also have a 92mm HDT cooler, if your case wont fit the big ones.
Ever since I first saw a review of the HDT-S1283, I've been wanting one. Here's the xbitlabs link.
Either the Xigmatek, or OCZ Vendetta would be my choice of cpu cooling, but the Xigmatek is bigger, and performs better, for the same price.
i want one of those for my 7800GS
Both Random Murderer and I have the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 from newegg! From Random doing a switch with heatsinks he saw almost a 23c drop in temps... The stuff is great! the heatsink weighs not even as much as the fan itself!
Yeah, it's got 8mm heatpipes too... I'm gonna get one soon mua haha...
^Which heatsink did Random Murderer switch from? Stock?
So, from zalman to xigmatek it dropped 23c?? Thats godly...
the 120mm rifle cooler, is it better than a artic cooling freezer pro?
The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is better then the ThermalRight Ultra and it's a lot cheaper...
It's very good that this brand gets more attention now.
Okay, this has nearly convinced me to take back my zalman 9700 to frys since it doesnt technically fit my P5E, is the clearance from the heatsink to the bottom of the cooler reasonably high? or is is narrow enough to fit between my NB heatsink without having to go over it. I just dont want to buy it and have it not fit. Could you guys comment on this so i know if it will fit ?
Random Murderer has the P5W board and it fits fine.. the only thing that Random did was take out the push pins and made his own washer hook... That way he knew it wouldn't move... And as of Wednesday I'll know if the Blood Iron fits it also... Bu I believe it will. Now for the case... It barly fit into his server case... Mine is a cosmos so I know it will fit there..
This says it all
Well, he was running the processor at 60 in idle. He runs a quad core in florida, so its was running like that... Now its 40ish at 3.4ish.. I don't really know since I haven't been next door for a while.. lol
Do you still use the push pins? Do they feel secure with the hs and fan on it?
I have an antec 900, its not the widest case, but think it would fit in that?
He has the push pins, And if you want, I'll be installing it probably with the push pins myself... So I'll let you know on wednesday how it goes.. I won't be doing the whole other set up until I get my xeon...
Alright thanks man. Antec says 8.1" for its width, and the HS is 6.3". However that doesnt include the mobo,spaces, gap between mobo tray and side panel, etc. So we shall see, let me know how it goes on wednesday.
Pm me in the morning so I know your AOL account... I'm not letting people know that one so if you do I'll give it to you and let you know..
Damn those push pins! I'm considering ordering one of these to replace the zalman, do the push pins seem a little less finicky than the stock intel HSF ones. I have seen several stock intel HSFs pop loose in many of my clients machines. Considering I didn't install the intel HSFs to begin with I can't vouch that the initial install was done correctly or not.
the 120 mm rifle cooler is to close to call if itll fit my case but i need it ...
I'll know more later on when I go over to Random's house... And let everyone know when I get the cooler myself. I believe it would be pretty nice myself.. I don't know yet..
i my heatsink.
would it be worth it to go from an arctic freezer 7 pro to this? i am aiming for 3.8ghz with 1.41 volts on an e6750, it can do it, but temps are currently an issue
yeah, its worth it according to the benchies. but my case cannot fit.
which ones, i havent seen any comparing it to an af7, could u please link?
