Xigmatek HDT-S963

It has been the cooler ive been drooling since it came out.
A week ago, I bought it from a member here with the retention bracket and a panaflo fan.

Same day it came home, was installed and took my e2160 from 1.8ghz to 3.2ghz = 78% Overclock


The HDT-S963 came with a 92mm 68.8CFM Panaflo Fan


Temps have been acceptable.
I tought i was gonna see 69C when i overclocked.. But NO!
Have a look at these maan:


IDLE


LOAD


Load temps have never passed 60C


im happy with the cooler


EDIT:

I payed $15 for all of this.


I love how 3 days after I bought my 1283 and it went down to 15 with the rebate but what ever. It was well worth it. Beats the pants off my Zalman 9700.

Are you sure those temps are correct? What's your TJ max set to in HWmonitor? The reason I ask is because I had the OCZ version which is a tad bit better than the Xig on a e2140 w 1.4v and those temps seem about 10c too low, unless you have a really cold room.

Hmmm, what stepping is your chip? I just find it hard to believe you get better temps with a 92mm Xig than its 120mm counterpart. Another thing that strikes me as odd is your core 0 at idle is 23c. Is your room like 15c?

When I was on air with my zalman 9500at my idle was around 22C, my ambient is around 12C right now though, I keep my window open with my computer right next to it though, now I have idle's right around 13C, gotta love water

It's very quiet and gives me ok temps (Since I keep fan speeds rather low)

Mounting it was a pain though
Indeed; those plastic screws that don't screw gave me hell. I also never figured out how that spoiler sits safely


And yes, set at low speed it's very silent but stays cool as well
