XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler with Stealth Aerospace Industry Thermal conductive ceramic coating LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Is very quite, easy to install, and keeps my 2500k below 60c on load. Comes with the ACK-I5361 bracket for better motherboard/CPU compatibility. Also price is rather affordable.

Cons: Doesn't give you the option to mount dual fans on the HSF but by no grounds would deserve to knock an egg off for that since I knew you can't add a second fan without modification.

Other Thoughts: Rebate form sent in the mail. Will re-visit this review section after I have received my rebate. Will also post on other review sites when I get the time. :]

XIGMATEK ACK-I5361 Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Compatible Bracket Set
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Not much to say... it's a bracket set.

Cons: The need to purchase a bracket set for a cooler.

After using the HSF for some time I can see where the back bracket could superglue itself to the mobo causing trace leads to rip off removing it. So be sure to take your undivided time removing the back bracket after installing this.

Other Thoughts: @justinco I just bought the Dark Night which came with this bracket set. I also have the Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 motherboard. You have to use the 775 side of the back bracket and line the holes up matching the 775 holes on the other side of the mobo. It fits perfect for this board so not sure why you had issues mounting your HSF. That said don't always believe another persons review. I *almost* didn't get this cooler due to your review but couldn't pass up the deal I got on the HSF + bracket set (cheaper than the cost of this bracket set... so free HSF lol).

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast memory!! Got it on sale but not here. That said however I got it on sale so only reason I bought these pair. Cas of 8 or 9 for $50 cheaper is just as good unless of course you can get them on sale. Wink Wink

Cons: None. G.Skill always never lets me down.

Other Thoughts: @ZiRiS below. The RAM isn't running @ 800Mhz. It runs at 1600Mhz. Just because CPU-Z or other similar software reports it @ 800Mhz it really is 800Mhz x 2 = 1600Mhz.
