Xigmatek Thor’s Hammer CPU Cooler Review
Jake Sedge / 12 years ago
Xigmatek has been well known for their CPU coolers for a long time, mainly for providing amazing performance for fantastic prices and also for their signature orange LED fans. Xigmatek has also made a great success with their move into the already crowded mid-range case market and has also branched into power supplies.
Xigmatek will also be moving into the higher end of the case market with their upcoming Elysium which I am particularly looking forward to.
We will be taking a look at Xigmatek’s Thor’s Hammer CPU cooler. This cooler is unique in both style and design, featuring a fantastic looking fin shape with wide gaps and an intricate overlapping design. It is marketed as a passive CPU cooler but up to 2 fans can be added.
It also sports Xigmatek’s own dual-layer heatpipe direct touch technology which we will be looking at in more detail alter. Unlike many of Xigmatek’s existing CPU coolers, this is aimed at the enthusiast end of the market
