Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Edition HDT CPU Cooler Review

Hardware BBQ
5 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Dark Knight is a great performer for the price. A 40c delta might seem like a lot, but do remember that the cooler is sitting a top a 2600K viz. overclocked at 4.5GHz with 1.33V core. That is a lot of thermal dissipation for a heat sink with 3 heatpipes and what is essentially a small footprint.
