XIGMATEK Launches the Whiz CPU Cooler

XIGMATEK today launched the Whiz upper-mainstream CPU air cooler, which it debuted at the 2017 Computex. The cooler features a conventional tower-type heatsink design, and can handle thermal loads of up to 150W. Four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the aluminum base, conveying heat to the fin-stack, which is ventilated by an included XIGMATEK SE II Red fan, with support for a second fan in push-pull configuration.

The included fan takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, pushing up to 78 CFM of air, with a noise output as low as 19.4 dBA. The fin-stack is capped off by a stylized top-plate. The XIGMATEK Whiz measures135 mm x 85 mm x 158 mm (LxWxH). It supports most modern CPU sockets, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2011v3, LGA115x, LGA1366, and LGA775.

XIGMATEK Shows Off Fire-proof PSU Cables

XIGMATEK showed off an interesting innovation for those pyrophobics among you. The company innovated fire-proof PSU cables that, in practice, minimize the chance of an overloaded cable heating up enough to melt the cable-insulation, shorting up, and starting a fire. If the insulation can stand fire from a lighter, it can withstand a heated cable. Most modern PSUs do feature overload protection that turns the PSU off in case a cable is overloaded.

XIGMATEK Unveils the Midgard IV Chassis

XIGMATEK unveiled the 4th iteration of its Midgard chassis, the Midgard IV. This version sees the case embrace the layout of the season - two horizontal compartments, the top one housing the motherboard tray, and the bottom one housing the PSU with drives. XIGMATEK went a step further with using the bottom compartment's roof as a base for an add-on card stabilizer, which works to counter the PCB bending of your graphics cards. You have room for graphics cards as long as 45 cm, and CPU coolers as tall as 17 cm. The motherboard tray supports EATX boards besides standard ATX types.

Unlike other cases launched this Computex with a similar layout, the Midgard IV also gives you three 5.25-inch drive bays.

Xigmatek Announces Aquila Micro-ATX Chassis

Xigmatek announced the stylish new Aquila micro-ATX chassis. Its design involves two pronounced matte-silvery beams onto which the frame is suspended, which is inclines from within, at an acute angle. The motherboard tray is oriented along the plane of the base, rather than perpendicular to it, which results in oodles of room for tall CPU coolers (up to 18 cm tall), and long graphics cards (up to 33 cm long). The motherboard tray, and a 5.25-inch drive bay make up the top compartment of the case, with valved cutouts running to the bottom compartment, which houses the PSU bay, two 3.5/2.5-inch bays, and two 2.5-inch bays.

Front-panel connectivity includes a pair of USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and HD audio jacks. It measures 390 mm x 403 mm x 265 mm (LxHxW). Xigmatek didn't disclose pricing.

Xigmatek Intros Accessor USB 3.0 Front-Panel Utility Consoles

Xigmatek rolled out Accessor, a new line of front-panel utility consoles that give you accessible USB ports, and multi-format card readers. The series include 5.25-inch Accessor Ultimate and 3.5-inch Accessor Pro variants, which fit into exposed drive bays in your PC case. Both use a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed internal standard header connection to your motherboard; the 5 Gb/s bandwidth is then used to drive downstream USB 3.0, USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and multi-format card readers. Power is drawn from a standard 4-pin Molex connector.

Accessor Ultimate offers one eSATA port (relayed from an internal SATA port), two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and a card reader that supports CF, SD, MMC, MS, xD, M2, and micro-SD formats. On its other end is a USB 3.0 standard internal header (for downstream USB 3.0 ports), a USB 2.0/1.1 internal header (for the USB 2.0 hub), a SATA cable (for the eSATA port), and a 4-pin Molex connection. The Accessor Pro, on the other hand, gets you one USB 3.0 port, and the same exact card-reader as the Accessor Ultimate. Unlike it, though, the Accessor Pro features a standard USB 3.0 type-A plug that runs to the rear panel of the motherboard, and a single-port USB 2.0/1.1 header for the card reader. Both are available in two color options - black and silver. Xigmatek didn't reveal pricing/availability information.

Xigmatek Rolls Out Gaia II and Loki II CPU Coolers

Xigmatek rolled out second generations of two of its iconic mainstream CPU coolers, Gaia II and Loki II (pictured in that order). With its 120 mm PWM fan detached, the Gaia II measures 120(W) x 50(D) x 159(H) mm, and is a conventional aluminum fin tower heatsink, with three 8 mm-thick exposed copper heat-pipes tasked with drawing heat directly from the CPU, and transporting it to the aluminum fin stack. Weighin 460 g, the Gaia II is a mid-range heatsink. Its included 120 mm spinner can push up to 56.3 CFM of air, spinning at 800 to 1,500 RPM. Gaia II is designed to handle thermal loads as high as 150W.

Moving on, Loki II is a compact tower-type CPU cooler for light thermal loads, as high as 130W. It features a dense aluminum fin stack to which heat directly drawn from the CPU is conducted by three 6 mm-thick exposed copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by a rare 92 mm PWM-controlled fan, which can push up to 52 CFM of air, spinning at speeds between 1,200 and 2,800 RPM. Measuring 92(W)x134(H)x50(D) mm without the fan, Loki II weighs about 330 g. Both coolers are designed to support the latest CPU socket types, including Intel LGA1150/LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA1366, AM3+/AM3, and FM2/FM1. Xigmatek didn't announce pricing, but we imagine the two Asgardians to replace their current-generation counterparts, at $30 and $25, respectively.
