  • Excerpt: With a trio of heatpipe direct touch CPU cooler reviews under our belts, I can definitively say that the tech is quickly catching on and spreading like wildfire. I am standing strong behind my statement from the last review of a H.D.T. cooler that I think this is the direction most CPU heatsinks will go in the future; much like the way nearly all CPU coolers use heatpipes nowadays.

Xigmatek HDT-SD964 CPU Cooler

11 July 2008
  • Summary: The Xigmatek HDT-SD964 did Amazingly well in our tests considering its small size. It beat the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro with the same sized fan whilst keeping a little quieter. It did MASSIVLY better than the intel stock cooler and was alot quieter at the same time. However the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 (its Big Brother) was cooler and quieter due to the slower fan and bigger size. However this would not fit into one of our midi cases and the HDT-SD964 fits with ease.
  • Pros: - Very good cooling performance, - Heatpipe Direct Touch technology, - Intel and AMD compatible, - Ultra quiet 92mm fan, and still silent.
  • Cons: - Bigger cooler performs better as exected, - Underside not flat so it gets paste clogged in

Xigmatek HDT-SD964 CPU Cooler

4 April 2008
  • Summary: Now, if you take the raw temperature readings from the Xigmatek HDT-SD964 ... you'll be disappointed to know that the cooling performance is no better than a standard stock cooler. The temperatures are virtually same. However, having said that ... this cooler is one of the quietest we've tested to date, with an impressive nosie level of approximately 22-30 dB-A.
  • Pros: - Ultra quiet, - Very good build quality, - Intel and AMD compatible, - Price
  • Cons: - Average cooling performance, (Not helped by a low rpm fan)

  • Excerpt: We’ve seen a lot of heatpipe contact coolers recently and they’ve all been quite good. One manufacturer that has been implementing the technology on many of its heat-sinks is Xigmatek and today I have another of one of their HDT series coolers for review. Read on to find out how it performs.

  • Summary: Het aanbod op het gebied van CPU-koelers is erg groot, en het blijft maar groeien. Dit zien we maar weer bij Xigmatek, want zij denken dat de HDT-SD964 een goede toevoeging is aan dit grote aanbod. Wij hebben getest of dit ook echt zo is en alle voor- en nadelen van deze CPU-koeler kun je in deze review lezen.
  • Pros: + Goedkoop, + Eenvoudige montage
  • Cons: - Saaie ventilator
