XIGMATEK dark knight - s1283 Tags: Heatsinks Overclocking Last response: January 27, 2009 8:36 PM in Overclocking Share robert4561 January 14, 2009 11:52:20 PM Does the XIGMATEK dark knight - s1283 come with the retention bracket? More about : xigmatek dark knight s1283 one-shot January 15, 2009 7:52:13 AM I have the Xigmatek 1283 and I purchased the retention bracket seperately. It was around 6.99 on Newegg. I'm not sure what the dark knight is tho. mcmonsterkill January 15, 2009 2:14:01 PM Mine came with a push pin system, but I ordered the seperate retention bracket so I could use screws.

Btw, the Dark Knight doesn't perform as well as the normal S1283 See: http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm I strongly recommend spending the extra $7-8 for the bolt in kit. Edit: The Dark Knight version comes with the bolt in kit. robert4561 January 16, 2009 12:04:27 AM Wait the last pic on http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=233... Isn't that the retention bracket or am I wrong here, I've only seen images of the thing from newegg. Shadow703793 a b K Overclocking January 16, 2009 11:31:13 AM ^ Yes. You are correct. It looks like it now ships with the brackets. When it just came out it didn't have the brackets. I stand corrected. novastorm January 21, 2009 11:22:22 PM So do they both come with a bracket nowadays? or just the Dark Knight version?? Shadow703793 a b K Overclocking January 27, 2009 12:42:11 AM ^AFAIK only the Dark Knight. milfordcubicle January 27, 2009 8:36:52 PM as of 1/3/09, s1283 does not. purchase separately.
