Xigmatek has officially announced the arrival of a new CPU cooler -- one with a rather unconventional design.
Xigmatek has released a new CPU cooler, and while we have seen it before at Computex, some more official images and details have been announced. The cooler features a rather peculiar design -- quite different from traditional C-type coolers. The main difference is in the addition of a sort of 'second' heat sink. The cooler is known as the Xigmatek Orthrus SD1467.
The cooler features a solid copper base from which protrude a total of seven 6 mm copper heat pipes. The central five heat pipes go to the main aluminum fin stack, while the two flanking heat pipes merge with the second, much smaller fin stack. The larger fin stack carries a 140 mm PWM fan, which spins at speeds between 800 and 1200 RPM, while the smaller fin stack carries an 80 mm PWM fan capable of spinning at speeds up to 2000 RPM.
The entire cooler is covered with a plastic shroud, and the fans, while orange, have white LED lighting.
The unit will be compatible with all modern day AMD and Intel CPU sockets, and is said to work on all motherboard form factors ranging all the way from E-ATX down to Mini-ITX.
Xigmatek gave no word on when the unit would be coming to shelves, nor did it inform the world about its MSRP.
