Opinions on Xigmatek SD1283?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Building together my first ever PC right now, will be used to cool a 3570K, maybe a mild overclock to 4 Ghz tops for now.

Im talking about this CPU Cooler:

Xigmatek SD 1283 Dark Knight Nighthawk Edtion................

As retarded as the name may be, I think it looks cool and according to this:

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/4730/xigmatek_dark_knight_sd1283_night_hawk_edition_cpu_cooler_review/index.html


review, its actually competing with CPU Coolers in a way higher price range.

Opinions/does any have it, do you think its worth the money?

All inputs apreciated biggrin.gif

It looks cool.

If it performs how they say it does than it may well be worth the $50.

NZXT Havik 140 is superior and similarly priced

Incomparable imo. The Havik at its price is in a league of its own and offers cooling performance slightly behind the Noctua NH-D14. Pretty impressive for a single tower thumb.gif

I'll bet a CM Hyper 212 Evo with an extra fan would offer better cooling performance

actually they look kind of exactly the same. Almost same size, both use direct contacs ot the IHS, bu the Xigmatek has this special surface thing...

I cant really imagine that they charge you 20$ for ceramic coathing, but ill wait for more input biggrin.gif

212+ is good for mild oc's.

Extreme and even high oc's the 212+ will struggle.

Just do a quick google search. Havik 140 > Dark Knight. Not even close I would say. Both are good looking coolers but performance wise, Havik offers beat performance for its price especially since the Silver Arrow (the original) is supposedly discontinued

Read above, where I live the Havik is 50% more expensive. Dont ask me why!


You can get the SD1283 here for 40€ shipped, the Havik is more like 65-70...
