Xigmatek strives to create reliable, earth-friendly, efficient thermal solutions. Their HDT-D1284 provides cutting edge technology with a bargain price. It features 4 large exposed 8mm pure copper heatpipes at its base which directly contact the CPU for highly efficient thermal transference. These S-shaped tubes arch up to support a horizontal array of lightweight aluminum convection fins.

Over 56 CFM of cooling air is blown downward through this array by the 120mm rifle bearing fan mounted at the top. The shape of the fins is designed to increase airflow across and around the fins. Anti-vibration rubber pads reduce noise levels by isolating the fan's movement from the array. PWM functionality further reduces noise levels by letting the system's BIOS monitor thermal need as well as the fan's performance and reducing its speed – and noise level – during periods of low demand

Designed for long, reliable service on a wide variety of processors, the HDT-D1284 utilizes a push-pin or tool-less clip installation to support Intel Socket LGA775 CPUs as well as AMD chips utilizing AM2, 754, 939 or 940 form factors.

  • newegg Superior Heat Dissipation and Cooling Performance Four high-performance heatpipes with H.D.T. (Heatpipe Direct Touch) technology and high-density aluminum fins with innovative raised points maximize heat transfer and dissipation. Plus a huge 120mm rifle bearing fan runs efficiently to deliver unparalleled cooling performance.
  • newegg PWM Function The PWM function automatically adjusts fan speeds according to the CPU temperature for efficient cooling and minimized fan noise.
  • newegg Easy Installation The XIGMATEK HDT-D1284 features a 3-in-1 application retention module design for easy and quick installation without additional tools or the need to remove the motherboard from your case.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility The XIGMATEK HDT-D1284 features broad compatibility with AMD socket 754, 939, 940, and AM2 platforms, as well as the Intel LGA 775 platform.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: The Cooler works amazingly well. It is pretty quiet. Doesn't seem to draw much power.

Cons: Large and a bit difficult to attach to Intel board. I didn't take away from the rating of the product for this, because it is exactly as advertised and attaching it to the board may be more of user inexperience since I use AMD mostly.

3 out of 5 eggsWill not fit in a case 5.5 inches deep

Pros: Nicely packaged, compared to the stock fan that comes with my FX8350 it is huge. Sad to have to return it.

Cons: I was building a AMD FX8350 cpu - ASUS mobo in a standard ATX case with a 550 W P/S and the outside dimension of the case was 5.5 inches depth. This CPU cooler is tall and in fact has a lot of space between the contact of the CPU and the top of the fan. I set it upon the empty CPU socket and immediately saw that I would not be able to put on the cover. Plus the fan blows straight up from the CPU so a case cover with perforations over the CPU area is required, else the air does not exhaust.

Other Thoughts: Before ordering be sure to measure and check that you have perforations in the case cover directly above the CPU socket. Had that been the case with me, I would of use dit, instead I am requesting RMA from Newegg. Not Neweggs fault, but sometimes you just have to have the product in your hands to try it.

4 out of 5 eggsAWESOME COOLER

Pros: Keeps my overclocked 6 core phenom (2.6-3.4) nice and cool. Once I replaced the fan that is. Idle was 32c with the stock fan.

averages about 25c idle and never above 40c under load!

Also since it is a top down cooler it provides cooling to the ram and components around the cpu as wel.

Cons: The stock fan on it is kinda weak.

Other Thoughts: Get this if you want a great cooler on the cheap and if you have a decent 120m fan lying around because the stock one is a little lacking.

1 out of 5 eggsSeemed like the right choice,

Pros: 120 mm fan along with 120 mm heat sink. 4 copper pipes to pull the heat to the heat sink. Fan in nice and silent. Cool temps on when using the PC but read cans and other thoughts.

Cons: The heat sink never gets hot. You might not see this as a con, but it never gets hot because the heat pipes cool down before the reach the heat sink. Again doesn't sound like a con until I tell you that idle temps 16 - 18 degrees Celsius and on load running NFS Most Wanted temps hit 73 degrees Celsius. Once again with the heat sink not being hot. The copper pipes cool down before the heat transfers to the heat sink, meaning I have my heat sink really is 4 heat pipes about an inch out from the cpu. There is no heat transfer to the heat sink from the direct touch heat pipes. My last cooler ran cooler than this. Read other thoughts on why I changed.

Other Thoughts: I got this heat sink for the reason that I got a new case and wanted to mount 140 mm fans on the side window and my previous heat sink was a little to tall. After installing the fans to the side and top of my case, my GTX went from 50 degrees Celsius to 38 degrees Celsius. Unlike my cpu (AMD FX-6100 running oe clock) going from 16 - 18 degrees Celsius to 73 degrees Celsius just playing Need For Speed. I wouldn't recommend this heat sink to anyone seeing as its design doesn't really do the job its suppose to.

5 out of 5 eggsblows alot of air...

Pros: i have 3 of these low speeds they are really quiet and move a good amount of air. crank them up full RPM and they blow a massive amount of air. does make more noise then running at 1900 rpm, but not a high pitch whine nor low pitch it's really not that bad...

Cons: it can be loud, but for the amount of air it moves I could care less

4 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: Near silent if that is what you like. Read change BIOS settings to adjust the default RPM range.

Ahem, any air movement is much better than no air movement. The fan helps a lot with MB cooling. That comment directed at another review.

Overall the HSF works well after modding.

Cons: 30 Day Warranties are terrible. Below is a quote from NE.

Limited Warranty period (parts): 30 days
Limited Warranty period (labor): 0 day

Base was not smooth, nor planar. Sanded and polished the base.

Other Thoughts: It is big. It uses push pins. Push pins work, but they exist because Intel is chintzy.

Check the warranty for yourself.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless HSF!

Pros: It looks impressive, like really impressive. It really felted like a quality product; at least the heatsink did.

Cons: The fan wouldn't spin and barely twitch when I powered up my system. Thinking there might be something wrong with my Mobo, I tried the HSF on two other systems. None of them worked either; really Xigmatek, you are going to do me like that on my first purchase of one of your product, not cool. Couldn't find anyone having the same problem on the forums, so I decided to RMA for a replacement and try again. BUT GUESS WHAT! …

Other Thoughts: ... Xigmatek wouldn't allow it and Newegg said it was refund only; at least newegg has my back. I’ve read all these good reviews and no one seems to be having my issue; but it’s just a matter of time until some else does. Oh well, I guess I’m really unlucky on this purchase. I’ll take my business to another company. Xigmatek, you just lost a potential customer. You couldn’t even prodive me a shipping label; oh no, now I gotta pay 5 dollars to ship your junk back to you guys. 5 dollars might not seem like a lot but that’s only because I live relatively close to return address. Otherwise, it would be 10 to 15 dollars; I know because checked.

Other cons… let me see. I used up my last bit of Arctic Silver 5, so I had to buy more. And installation was tricky. Not hard but tricky. Reason being is that as you installing the retention clip on AMD Motherboard the heatsink tends to move slightly. This exposes the edges of the CPU killing the effectiveness of the HSF. I had to adjust it just

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing works REALLY WELL...

Pros: Downward facing fan which helps cool the motherboard's mosfet and north bridge nicely, saw about an 8C drop in the motherboard temps alone. I threw this bad boy on a Phenom II X4 820 and was able to get a steady overclock at 3.4 GHz.

Stability test showed it only getting up to 38-40C at max load. It idles around 27-30C depending on the room temp.

This is the third CPU I've used this HS on so this is just an update on how it's working after a year in my machines.

However, I did switch out the fan and I'm using a COOLER MASTER SickleFlow 120 instead.

Cons: Haven't had anything to complain about. It does it's job well...

Other Thoughts: Found a bit of info on Arctic Silvers site which said the best way to use a HDT style HS you need to cover the entire bottom of the HS with a very fine layer of thermal compound before doing the middle dot application. It has made a world of difference. Before I just used a middle dot the size of a BB and it worked well, just not as good as it is working now. I had a much slower quad core running at the same if not higher temps with the middle dot only application of thermal grease.

Good air flow and the proper application of thermal grease for the type of HS you're using makes the world of difference in your CPU and case temps.

3 out of 5 eggsThe cooler works fine, but is extremely difficult to install

Pros: It works well and is quite, considering the price.

Cons: It is very difficult to install. Have to bend the copper heatpipe a little bite to increase the room between the base and fin, otherwise there is no way to lock the cooler.

Other Thoughts: CPU AMD 1055T
under the aida64 stress test,
fan speed ranged between 900 to 1300 RPM (very quite)
and CPU temperature was around 85F.

5 out of 5 eggsIts chilly....once you get it in

Pros: Cpu temps 8-10 degrees cooler quiet looks cool

Cons: installation is a pain
tryed installing 5 times with mobo in the case then fiannly took the mobo out and installed it just fine

would have taken an egg off for this if it didnt cool so good

Other Thoughts: the plastic pusah pins kinda scare me I feel like i am gonna come home one day with the cooler sitting on my graphics card but oh well that just me being paranoid....I hope

i recommend mounting this with the heat pipies facing the top of the case gave me best performance
