    Xigmatek is a new company churning out computer cooling components. We took a look at one of their heatsinks not so long ago, and now, we have their S80 on our testbed. This is not a normal HSF by any means - it is a fusion of both air and water cooling, using dual 80 mm radiators and a 72 l/hr pump to cool your CPU. How does such an interesting concept perform? Can watercooling packed into such a small form factor be any better than standard air cooling?

    if the water circuit is absolutely air tight and the water is free from oxygen corrosion shouldnt occur. is that the case ? no fill cap or anything like that ?

    This cools as well as my 300 dollar Koolance Exos and its alot more compact. A fine choice for those wanting to get into water cooling. Its like mounting an Aftermark HSF.

    There is a fill cap, and the corrosion would not be due to oxygen, but due to 2 dissimilar metals. It is not the common type of corrosion (i.e. rust), but rather that one metal is "eaten away" (in this case, the copper base) and is then deposited on the aluminum.

    Where did you buy it and how much? I was trying to buy it in USA here but no luck.
    I end up bought their 90mm and 120mm version but still interested to see this unit.

    Lol, someone beat me to it. It looks quite interesting! I wonder if they did any refining of the mounting mechanism?
