Xigmatek managed to pull off the ultimate hat trick in 2008. The company made coolers that were cheaper, lighter, quieter and performed just as well as the very best CPU coolers manufactured in 2008. The key to Xigmatek's success has to do with their HDT (Heatpipe Direct Touch) patent and what it does to seemingly ordinary coolers.
Xigmatek's HDT puts the heatpipes in direct contact with the CPU's IHS. By eliminating the plate that most normal coolers use as a buffer, heat immediately travels through the heatpipe to the fin area of the cooler. The entire process is very efficient and has propelled Xigmatek products to the top of every enthusiasts most wanted list.
It is now 2009 and Xigmatek is ready to break into a new market. The company will still offer their amazing sub 40 Dollar USD coolers that perform with the best 80 Dollar products from other manufacturers, but they are now ready to bring their own ultra premium coolers to the market.
At CES Xigmatek brought with them their new 2009 cooler to show media from around the globe. Once all of those meetings were over, what did they want to do with the new cooler? Give it to TweakTown of course! - Today we are going show you the Xigmatek Thor's Hammer, part number S126384. Right off the bat you should notice the part number. Until now Xigmatek products up to this point had three and four digit part numbers that related to the features of each particular cooler they were associated with. Thor's Hammer skips over the five digit theme and goes straight to six numbers. At the end of this preview can you decode the new scheme? Let's start to give you the clues.
