XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle or Gemini II?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I happen to have both a Gemini II and a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 because I am stupid and I will leave it at that. So I need to return one of them but not sure what one yet. What do you think is better for overclocking?

Assuming the Xig will fit in your case it is the better cooler. I'd keep it and return the Gemini. YMMV

the xigmatek HDT is real nice, but I can tell you from experience, if you lap that geminII, put two good fans on it, and make sure you seat it right.... it works wonders.

with 1.5vcore on my 65nm X2 I idle at 26C in the winter, and no more than 34C in the hot summer.

Another vote for the Xig...less hassle, less overall weight on your mobo and will work just fine for OCing.

I hope you're joking. The Xigmatek is way better than the Gemini.
