After a short wait I finally got the fight I wanted; true apples to apples with Xigmatek's HDT technology in 120mm form up against the best the computer industry has to offer. The first question I had was if the thin, light weight cooler could really perform with the likes of Noctua and Arctic Cooling and that was easily proven true. The same goes for acoustics; H.D.T is able to perform well with low speed fans that produce little to no noise, even on full speed.
Xigmatek has crossed a line that so many are starting to move their coolers into, the price line. At less than 40 Dollars the Red Scorpion is able to deliver high performance with high style at a price many can afford. For many years industry leading performance came with a price tag of 60, 70, 80 Dollars and sometimes without a fan. So kudos goes to Xigmatek for bringing performance products to the masses.
If you are looking for even better cooling, Xigmatek just announced a new line of CPU coolers called Achillies and it features four heat pipes. I only mention it because when shopping around I ran into the product for sale already and I know how our enthusiast base likes to be kept up on the latest and greatest. Look for a review in the coming months here on TweakTown.
