The Xigmatek Dark Knight is the best looking S1283 cooler I have seen to date. I really can't imagine how they could make this cooler have any more appeal than they have done with the all-black, nickel plating. This cooler is "dark" through and through and the fan choice is an excellent addition to accent the Dark Knight.
The performance of the Dark Knight is really good based on its listed selling price. With only a minor gap in testing between the Dark Knight and the Thor's Hammer (depending on your fan choice), for those who don't need the latest in fin design the Dark Knight is a cheaper alternative. If you are looking for a good bang for the buck cooler I think the Dark Knight S1283 should be put on your list of choices.
I don't really have anything to address, as far as issues go, with the Dark Knight. Everything was pretty much what is expected from Xigmatek, but this time in a sexy black nickel coating. I for one am a sucker for "bling", and overall appeal of a cooler. With the Dark Knight being in the sub-fifty dollar cooler market, the Dark Knight can stand atop the hill and do battle with some of the best coolers out there. I would personally buy this cooler if I hadn't seen the Thor's Hammer first. Based on pricing alone I feel this cooler has a bit more value to offer than the Thor's Hammer does.
