Thoughts on Xigmatek HDT-S1283? - Page 2

post #11 of 75
I was doing the same thing a month ago. i would go with the thermalright ultra 120 extreme. that one site does not rate the true the best, but overall most places think the true is better. it has served me well, and with the true you can put two fans on it. idk if you can with the one you are looking at. a push pull technique is effective.

And the TRUE (Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme) costs almost twice as much and doesn't include a fan.

Not twice as much...50% more....and you should have a fan around. Most people replace stock fans because they are stock. It's not like a stock fan adds to the value...it costs them 2$. Thermalright could easily include a fan, but they know that if you are leaving stock cooling, you are also leaving stock fans.

If you overclocking headroom over a stock heatsink, go for a Xigma. If you want good temps for higher overclocks or summer weather, etc, go for a TRUE. If you want all the benefits of he TRUE but with lower-speed fans, go for an IFX-14. Anything better than that, you are looking at a 250+$ WC loop.

DO i detect some thermalright fanboyism But yeah this is a tight budget rig, and im going from a 2.0 single core athlon->Phenom 9850BE so I won't need to OC tooo much Im just hopin for 3.0

Uhh dude, the HDT-S1283 in all the tests I've seen only performs about a degree worse than the TRUE. The HDT-S1283 offers pretty much just as good temps but at a fraction of the cost of a TRUE.

Plus, the HDT-S1283 is actually physically smaller than the TRUE, making it a better choice if you have a restrictive motherboard.

Every degree is better when it comes to overclocking says Adrien. And 2/3 is barely enough to call it a faction of the cost. I already said the Xigma is better if you want cheap, but if you want to get technical, the TRUE is thinner so leaves more space on the sides, plus you can put two fans, plus you can lap it, plus it looks better.

That said, I thought the stock cooler on the Phenoms were pretty good?

If you just want 3.0, then stock is probably fine, maybe just an AC7 if the wallet is tight, it's half the cost of the Xigma.

If you want to dish out the extra cash for a bit more headroom, theres always the Xigma, but if you're going for the Xigma is probably just for the comfort of lower temps, in which case why not go all the way (20$) you know?
