TEST RESULTS


Quote:
With the Xigmatek Bifrost attached it was a different story altogether, temperatures stabilized at their maximum after 3 minutes and stayed put for the duration of the test. I am still trying to get over the shock from recording such low temperatures. A whole 18°C difference between idle temps and 38°C difference between load temps. I even decided to run FurMark in extreme burning mode to see if I had the settings wrong and there was no difference. The message here is that my O/C was not restricted by temperature, the amazing Bifrost was consistently able to keep the load temperature below the idle temperature recorded using the stock cooler.

The graph says it all, this is a really extreme cooler. If only there was a way I could attach it to my CPU and replace my noisy zalman to see what it could do there, I'm sure it could work wonders alot like the HDT-S1283 also by Xigmatek.



Final Thoughts

Xigmatek is relatively new in the world of cooling but these guys came into the world with both Barrels Blazing. It seems that these guys can do no wrong. The Engineering of all the Xigmatek line is always well thought out and their Reputation for Quality is Excellent.

The new Xiggy Bifrost VD1065 HDT VGA Cooler gets
4 out of 5 Cool Points The one off was because it won't fit my 4870x2

Fairly new cooler and it doesn't state compatability for the new 5k series?

That would be a huge mistake on Xigmatek's part.

Results look impressive and my cards are supported. I might have to look into this

Yea.. I was thinking the same thing.. but if you think about it. The relative coolness and low wattage for the 5xxx Series is so low that maybe it would not be something that a person would want to invest in. Unfortunately , I don't have any data that says what the 5xxx series temps are at full Throttle but I would bet they are tolerable and the fact that they are so low would say that an external Extreme cooler would not be marketable for the 5xxx series except for The Noise Factor.

But that is my personal opinion and is definably up for debate.

If it fits on a 4890 it will fit on a 58xx.

That said, it wouldn't work very well. You'd need another VRM cooler and HDT designs are rather poor when cooling bare dies.

Hopefully this launches in the US. I would slap it on my 4870 in a heartbeat.

Anyone looking to get a significant overclock (myself included) would love to have a great aftermarket air cooling solution. The 5xxx's stay cool at stock voltage and clocks but who here stays stock

Do you have any backup information on this for reference? Regardless I have a 5970 coming in today so I really need a double GPU cooler....thinking I might have to go watercooling soon
