  • Excerpt: The Red Scorpion S1283 CPU Cooler is one of the newest offerings from Xigmatek . It is a heat pipe, direct-touch, air cooling system for all Intel Socket 775 CPUs and AMD Socket AM2/754/939/940 CPUs. The design uses copper heat pipes through a system of aluminum alloy fins to effectively remove heat from the CPU and then disperses it with a 120mm fan.
  • Pros: Compatible with nearly all Intel and AMD CPUs, very quiet, good for overclocking, aesthetically pleasing.
  • Cons: 600g heavy, may require purchasing the "Crossbow" back plate.

Xigmatek HDT-S1283 CPU Cooler

  • Summary: The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 did very well in our tests. It cooled alot better than the stock intel cooler and the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro whilst keeping the volume to a minimum with that big low rpm fan.  The only bad side we can see to this cooler is the fact that the base is not a baseplate but the heatpipes and hold down mixed making the thermal paste collect in the areas between.
  • Pros: - Very good cooling performance, - Heatpipe Direct Touch technology, - Intel and AMD compatible, - Ultra quiet 120mm fan

  • Summary: The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 heatsink features three heatpipes in direct contact with the top of the processor, resulting in one very potent CPU cooler. The technique is called heatpipe Direct Touch, and for today's class of heatspreader capped processors it's the only way to go.

Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Heatsink Review

  • Conclusion: It’s a great cooler, no doubt about that. The only thing I didn’t like about the HDT-S1283 was the size of it that could be unfriendly to smaller casings, in my case the casing wasn’t wide enough to fit the entire height of the HDT-S1283. The 120mm fan? It was silent as it is, just that the silence is somewhat broken once the RPM goes to maximum when the processor is on load. I’m also glad that Xigmatek included holding clips that cater for multiple socket types.

  • Conclusion: Xigmatek Addendum con't Q6600 Results Idle Load As you can see this improved application method does reduce temperatures enough to be considered significant. Due to the fact Xigmatek will be recommending this application method these new numbers will be used for all future reviews as the official HWC Xigmatek S1283 performance results.

  • Excerpt: Hoy os traemos la review de otro producto de Xigmatek, es el turno del HDT-S1283, un disipador tipo torre que, como veremos más adelante, servirá para silenciar nuestro equipo o permitirnos realizar un overclock bastante agresivo sin dejarnos el procesador en el intento.
  • Pros: Alta compatibilidad con la mayoría de placas base, las aletas empiezan a una altura que permite evitar los disipadores de Northbridge moderadamente altos.
  • Cons: Varios años de experiencia en el sector de la industria térmica proporcionan a nuestros clientes la mejor refrigeración de sistemas, más fiable, mejor adaptada y de mayor rendimiento, incluyendo un excelente servicio para cumplir con las necesidades de usuarios y clientes de todo el mundo., Un problema puede ser la altura del disipador del Northbridge, pero el S1283 es un disipador alto que en la mayoría de casos no supondrá un probema., Mantiene la diferencia de 1ºC ...

  • Summary: Lieferumfang gut, Verarbeitung gut, Preis gut, Kühlleistung herausragend, was will man mehr. Würde die Wärmeleitpaste in einer Spritze oder Tube geliefert werden, gäbe es an diesem Angebot nichts auszusetzen. Uns bleibt nun nur noch unseren Kühlleistungsreferenz Award zu vergeben.

  • Conclusion: Xigmatek hat mit der Neuauflage des -S1283 versucht das auszubessern, was die Kunden bemängelt haben. So wurde der schlichte Lüfter gegen ein Exemplar mit Beleuchtung ausgetauscht, der auch noch etwas mehr Leistung bei fast gleicher Geräuschentwicklung besitzt. Auch am Aussehen wurde gearbeitet, so sind die Heatpipes und die Lamellen nun vernickelt.
  • Pros: sehr leichter Einbau, Lüfter ist austauschbar und wird entkoppelt
  • Cons: Lamellen nicht fest mit den Heatpipes verbunden
