XigmaTek Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm CPU cooler

[QUOTE][COLOR=#1f497d][FONT=Verdana][B] [/B][/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=Verdana][SIZE=3][COLOR=#4864a7][COLOR=#4864a7][FONT=Verdana]On the test bench today, we are taking a look at another of Xigmatek's coolers: The Dark Knight. While the name is synonymous with the D.C. Comic character Batman, Xigmatek's Dark Knight doesn't fend off any super villains, but it does have a job which is to keep that CPU under the hood at a nice chilly temperature. In today's computers the never ending search for more MHz leads one to over clocking, over clocking leads to an increase in heat, increasing the heat leads to premature failure of the part which in this case is the CPU. Electromigration is the main cause of premature failure due to an excess amount of heat over long periods of time that basically wears the traces on the CPU out. I guess this would be more of a physical failure, although on a microscopic scale.[/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/QUOTE]

In the works. But it will be small.
