Introduction

This time we tested the Xigmatek Gaia CPU cooler. It has a tower heatsink, three 8 mm direct-touch heatpipes, and a 120 mm fan.

The Gaia seems to be the “bigger brother” of the Xigmatek Loki, which we recently tested. Its box is relatively small and simple, as you can see in Figure 1.

The box contents are shown in Figure 2: heatsink, fan, manuals, thermal compound, and installation hardware. The cooler came with only one fan, but it comes with the hardware necessary to install a second 120 mm fan.
