When discussing on forums what to buy next, or what has the best bang for the buck, a lot of the smaller companies are left out of the conversation. To me there are good reasons for this. First off, there is the unknown factor. Without many reviews around it's hard to get a grasp on what these companies offer. Secondly, they just don't get the advertising space on the major sites, announcing their presence in the world. With this company's entry to the marketplace in 1992, they are starting to create a name for themselves.
Kingwin is the company we have the pleasure of working with this time around. They are better known for their Mach 1 power supplies, but make storage solutions and coolers as well. Kingwin entered the market with the idea that each PC has its own individuality and get used more and more in our daily lives. They want to satisfy their customers with quality products that perform well and offer them great customer service. I can only really test the first two of those ideals, as I really hope I don't run into any issues that require support.
Today Kingwin delivers the XT-1264 Xtreme CPU cooler from their H.T.C or Heat-pipe Touch Chip technology. This is not unlike their previous H.D.T. coolers, just a different naming scheme this time around. Either way you want to refer to it, let's take this cooler with exposed heat-pipes and get some images, then on to the testing.
