The Package

The Dark Knight comes packaged in a similar box as the other S1283 coolers. This time Xigmatek has also added a sword to the front behind an image of the cooler. The Sword is a nice touch; after all, what good is a Knight without a sword?

The right side of the package shows Xigmatek's three main features of interest; well, four actually. First, this is yet another H.D.T. cooler with the three exposed heat pipes moving down to the very well engineered anti-vibration fan mounts that work really well at isolating the fan. Onward to the four white LED fan, which brings me to the fourth feature, this cooler is dressed in all black attire.

The back of the box is where the specifications table is pasted.

The left side of the Dark Knight packaging shows what applications this cooler is capable of. Note, this version is not capable of i7 mounting, you need to purchase the version ending in "V" for that mounting hardware.

With the inner package removed you can see Xigmatek didn't change anything with how the Dark Knight is protected. They used the same foam inner as the rest of the S1283s to keep the shipping companies lunchtime football game from adding any damage to the cooler itself.
