Specifications, Availability and Pricing
I already covered the SD128264 naming, and where the Aegir name derives, so let's get down to the technical aspects of the cooler. As I mentioned, Xigmatek took the base from the Thor's hammer, but this time without the black nickel plating. The group of six pipes, four from the bottom of the base, and the two running atop the base, all bend up and run in through forty-eight aluminum fins. These 0.4mm fins are bent on the ends to trap air flow and redirect it, as well as adding support for each fin. I also mentioned that the fin shape is a cross of a couple of coolers we have already looked at. This offers better spacing for the fans to build pressure, and sticks to a look we have all come to know and love from Xigmatek.
Inside the packaging, Xigmatek cools the Aegir with a translucent black fan with white LEDs. Not only will this fan offer an attractive look in your case, but offers great performance numbers. Boasting almost 90 CFM of air flow at 2200 RPM, this 4-pim PWM powered fan should do a great job of cooling the fins and heat pipes. Xigmatek rates the fan at an amazing 20dB when at full speed, and if that is true, this ought to be a really good performing and near silent cooler. With what I have seen with accompanying fans in the past, I will be keeping an ear on these fans. I almost forgot! Xigmatek was nice enough to also send along a second fan, the XLF-F1254. This is the same fan that comes with the Aegir, just that it has a 3-pin connection and no PWM feature.
I have had this cooler for some time now, and I would have honestly assumed shelves to be starting to fill already. The reality of it is, that you will need to wait just a bit longer until you will be able to find one of your own. With a MSRP of $59.99, you do get a cooler and a fan, unlike the Thor's hammer, and at a better release price. The extra fan that was shipped with the Aegir is easily found, and should run around $10 to get one so that you can run this cooler in a push/pull configuration. With a $70 asking price for the best results, and a bit less performance for $60, let's see just what sort of performance or upgrades we are going to receive for the money.
