Xigmatek has kept me pretty busy with a trio of coolers they have recently submitted to our labs. Xigmatek has made quite a name for itself, since its inception in 2005. This name has really come from their patented H.D.T. (Heat-pipe Direct Touch) technology cooler line-up and today's sample fits into this category as well, but with just a bit of a twist. This "twist" is that Xigmatek is introducing a new use of their technology to improve on an already great idea.
Today's sample is the Xigmatek Thor's Hammer S126384, a variation on their four heat-pipe cooling solution. The Thor's Hammer is a complete re-think of a bunch of the features of the previously released four-pipe coolers. Thor's Hammer introduces dual layered heat-pipe cooling, as well as a unique take on the fin design. The dual layered heat-pipes consist of a total of seven pipes of two varying dimensions. The fins (or body) of Thor's Hammer are black nickel coated and have an unusual stager and shape, both of which are to aid in airflow through the cooler which will reduce temperatures.
Thor's Hammer made its debut during CES 2009 and everyone had gotten their hands all over that sample. Our preview, however, didn't show what the cooler really has to offer. It was horribly tarnished from all the handling during the exhibition. That makes me really anxious to see what this cooler looks like fresh from the factory floor.
Enough with the introduction, let's turn on some lights, get the camera ready and see what Xigmatek has delivered to our labs.
