XIGMATEK DARK KNIGHT INTRODUCTION
Xigmatek hasn't been around the PC aftermarket for as long as some other companies, but they've certainly made a splash, marketing some very innovative designs (including pioneering work in the direct touch heatpipe design) to good reviews from customers and the press alike. I recently got a chance to evaluate their Thor's Hammer CPU cooler (See the review HERE ) and was very impressed by the cooling performance, but frustrated by the installation. Next, we got a chance to check out Xigmatek's Balder SD 1283 cooler, which had great performance and a much improved mounting solution. This time out, Xigmatek has provided the next iteration of the 1283 cooler that they've named the Dark Knight. Let's examine our review sample and see how the Dark Knight compares to the Balder.
