Xigmatek's New Thor's Hammer

There are a lot of things that make this cooler stand out from the crowd, but the first thing you observe is the sheer size. The T-Hammer is a big, bad, take no prisoners kind of cooler, just how we like them.

I went through my office trying to find something that everyone has seen before. A Dollar bill wouldn't work since this is an international site. Even from the side, the Hammer dwarfs my old cellphone.

Xigmatek didn't stop with just a tall cooler, but everything is proportionate; have a look at those 8mm heatpipes that will transport the processors heat to the fins. Most of the coolers produced in 2008 used 6mm pipes, but there were a few to break into the 8mm club.

Speaking of 6mm heatpipes, Thor's Hammer has those as well, three of them. The pipe count in total is seven, more than Xigmatek has ever offered on a single product.
