XIGMATEK HDT-S963 (082) Cooler Review

The Cooler »


I would like to thank XIGMATEK for supplying us with this review sample.

XIGMATEK is relatively new when it comes to the cooler business and many of you may have never heard of them until techPowerUp! started to review their products. They have been dealing in OEM products for some time now, but are coming out with more and more coolers for the retail market. We got to take a look at Xigmatek's line of coolers at CeBIT 2007 in Germany, and they had a fair bit to show. First starting out with simple air coolers, they now have everything from high-end air coolers to all-in-one water coolers for CPUs and GFXs. Today we get a preview of one of their new upcoming air coolers called the 082 - the 055's big brother.
