I was but no matter. Fins are a little different on ceramic one for 2 sets of fan mounts and it got black ceramic.

Both are 3 pipe



Both Dark Knights have 3x 8mm heat pipes in both while Havik 140 has 6x 6mm heat pipes meaning 75.4sq mm compared to 113sq mm per mm length of pipe meaning Havik has 1.5 times as much surface area on it's heat pipes to increase cooling.

it's not a rebrand just the same OEM. Although they are very different, the Xigmatek Prime shares some similarities with the Havik 120 and Havik 140. All of them are better than the Dark Knight though. And let me warn you, the Coating of the DK 2 is extremely dmagable, so you have to be very careful handling with it.


@PontiacGTX:

Are you talking about the ugliest cooler known to mankind?. rolleyes.gif

The havik is looking very good at this point, but hard to source where I'm at. Newegg ships to where I'm at but for some reason they show as discontinued on the website.

Will it fit the P8z77 I deluxe? Or maybe since this is such a headache I should give up on the idea of the prodigy entirely and go with a mid tower instead. I'm just thinking going atx will push the costs up quite a bit. True?

Or... The hr-02 looks good too and will fit the asrock itx but I can't source it. Any other good ones that are available on newegg that'll fit the asrock itx?

it will definitely fit the P8z77 i deluxe.

THe HR-02 Macho in this Video is similar in size, wich is a highly recommendable cooler for the money btw. The best thing about it is the fact that it comes one of the best 140mm Fans @stock.

On the other hand the P8z77 i deluxe is quite expensive.... but thats your decision really wink.gif

That's why I'm trying to avoid getting the Asus as much as possible and go for the asrock instead. Any ones good for the asrock thats available on newegg?
