9. HDT-S1283 by XigmaTek
Medium level users
The final product from Xigmatek is the 'HDT-S1283'. We have to do with another cooler based on the Direct Touch (H.D.T.) design equipped with a 120mm fan.
The HDT-S1283 comes in a medium sized retail box with a semi-transparent window
The retail box includes a manual, a 120mm fan, mounting clips for various sockets and of course the the HDT-S1283 cooler.
The cooler is big and it uses three Φ8 U shaped copper heatpipes.
The bottom of the cpu cooler follows the H.D.T. design as we saw in the previous pages.
The 120mm fan has rotates at 800~1500 R.P.M., meaning that the cooler should offer quiet operation.
Again, our LGA1366 system requires the use extra mounting clips (sold separately):
For our installation we used the Crossbow LGA-1366 mounting kit. The procedure is the same we followed in the previous pages.
The increased height of the cooler will help you install it fast and easily. What's left now is to attach the 120mm fan.
