    Where would computers be without coolers? Nowhere... High-end systems put out heat just like an engine, and they need to be cooled just like an engine. Water cooling is becoming a more popular format to keep these systems in line, but what if you don't want or can't afford a water system? High-end air coolers are the only next option. XIGMATEK is now starting to fulfill this need with coolers like the 055 which we'll look at today.

    Good review dj. I never heard of them, but this cooler looks like a beast. IF they can finish and polish it up and get some of the shortfalls fixed, its one heck of a cooler. Too bad they didnt go all the way copper :) Thanks again for the info.

    Single notch retention clip is bad....just increase the change of it just snapping the bracket.

    I guess they didnt go all copper just due to weight.

    nice review djbbenn!
    never heard of xigmatech, but this definately seems like a good new choice for air coolers.
