Today we are testing the only CPU cooler from Intel available on the retail market, the XTS100H. It is compatible with sockets 1155/1156, has a tower heatsink, three heatpipes and a 95 mm fan. Check it out!
The XTS100H resembles to the DBX-B Intel cooler, which we already reviewed. The DBX-B, however, is bigger, and fits only socket LGA1366 CPUs. Although the name of this cooler is XTS100H, it is also sold as DHX-B or BXXTS100H.
This cooler can be bought alone, but it is advertised as a companion for the Intel Core i7-875K and Core i5-655K processors, which are unlocked, overclocking-aimed CPUs that come without a cooler.
The XTS100H box is big and uses the same graphical design used on Intel CPU boxes, as you can see in Figure 1.
In Figure 2, you can see what comes inside the box: the cooler itself, thermal compound, and a manual.
In Figure 3, you can see the XTS100H.
In the next pages, you will see this cooler in detail.
