Unique Looking Xigmatek Orthrus SD1467 CPU Cooler Released
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
It is very rare to actually see a CPU cooler that looks dramatically different to the traditional offering of AIOs, tower heatsinks, top down coolers and so on. Yet Xigmatek’s Orthrus SD1467 CPU cooler certainly breaks the mould quite a lot. Impressively this CPU cooler uses seven 6mm heat pipes of which 5 go into a larger heatsink ventilated by a 140mm fan and the other 2 go into a smaller heatsink ventilated by an 80mm fan.
This is all enclosed by a plastic shroud on top which gives a very unique look and feel. The top fan as mentioned is a 140mm fan and uses PWM between 800 and 1200 RPM, the 80mm PWM fan has a maximum RPM of 2000 RPM.
With a weight of 875 grams Xigmatek claim that the Orthrus SD1467 can dissipate up to 180W of TDP.
Key features as specified by Xigmatek can be seen below. More is available at the product page.
- Seven high quality heat-pipes and copper base material – effective heat transfer.
- Duel set of Heat-sink fins allows additional heat dissipation to other components on the motherboard.
- Fans can be reverse mounted.
- Supports E-ATX, ATX, micro-ATX and mini-ITX form factors.
- Extremely quiet.
- Fans are equipped with FCB (Fluid circulative bearing)
- Fans are equipped with white LED’s.
- Cooler cover-plate protects fins whilst adding a unique design.
- Braided cables on fan, keeps the wires hidden and maintains aesthetics of the interior.
- Easy to install
It is certainly a unique looking CPU cooler but I have a feeling more people will dislike the way it looks compared to those who like it.
