Xigmatek Dark Knight CPU Cooler Review

The Dark Knight is a CPU cooler from Xigmatek, with a tower heatsink, three direct-touch heatpipes and a 120 mm fan. Check it out!

The Dark Knight box is small, with a transparent window in the front, which allows you to see the fan, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 2 shows what the box contains: the heatsink, fan, manual, installation hardware, and a small bag of thermal compound.

It seems to be different versions of the product. The manufacturer website presents only the S1283W model, but the sample we received is referred to as S1283V. We couldn’t find out what is the exact difference, but our sample didn’t come with the hardware necessary for installation on AMD processors (although the box says it is compatible with AMD sockets). So it is a good idea to check if it is compatible with your CPU before buying it.
