Introduction to the Xigmatek Aegir SD128264 CPU Cooler
Xigmatek has only been around for about six years now, and in that short amount of time you wouldn't think that a company could make such an impact in whatever market they are targeting. Yet that is not the case for Xigmatek for their coolers has been selling very well. Their Heat-pipe Direct Touch technology, or H.D.T., has been successfully used by several of the big named companies to improve the performance of their air coolers. What many may not be aware of is that Xigmatek was the first company to introduce this method of heatsink design, and the rest, as they say, is history.
It has been awhile since we last saw any Xigmatek products surface from the pages of Pro-Clockers, but that changed a few days ago when we received a hefty box from them. The first item is the biggest and baddest of those in the box, and what we will be bringing you today: the Aegir SD128264 (to make it easy, we'll just call it Aegir). This new cooler utilizes Xigmatek's latest update to the direct touch technology which they are calling Dual Layer H.D.T. The sheer size when combined with this new technology should make the Aegir one cooler not to be reckoned with. Lets take a look at this thing and see if it is lived up to our hype!
Xigmatek's take on the Aegir SD128264
Aegir, high-end tower cooler is based on the newly developed D.L.H.D.T. (Double Layer with Heat-pipe Direct Touch) structure. With its 2*Φ8mm and 2*Φ6mm Heat-pipes on the H.D.T. Base and the 2*Φ6mm Heat-pipes on the 2nd layer, it is launched as a “World Exclusive Technology Cooler” but also outstanding and great performance. It is compatibility with Intel LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366 & AMD Socket AM2/AM3. This provides a higher intake volume, and giving you coolers with optimum airflow, featuring unique dual fan cooling design.
