  • Summary: Kingwin's XT-1264 is the first tower-style heatsink to pass through the Frostytech test labs which incorporates asymmetrical U-shaped heatpipes. In other words the heatpipes are not even, rather one length of each vertical heatpipe is 30mm shorter than the opposite.

Kingwin XT-1264

  • Conclusion: The Kingwin CPU cooler performed as I expected it to. Nothing spectacular, but not disappointing either. I can’t help wonder how this CPU cooler would perform if the CPU coolers base was lapped, also have an retention plate installed with it. This is Kingwin’s greatest failing by not including this simple little device as with any CPU cooler performs much better once a retention plate is used.

XT-1264

  • Conclusion: We loved the original Revolution for its innovative direct touch heatpipe design that provided excellent performance at an excellent price.  The XT is no different, using a very similar design, just super-sized for the higher heat load that is Nehalem.  With that being said, there are a couple things that could be improved.
  • Pros: Good value, Quiet, Decent Performance, Improved mounting system for AMD sockets
  • Cons: I personally prefer a heavier mounting system such as the backplate style over the Intel push-pin style.
