Windows 7: Xigmatek Dark Knight LGA1366

10 Mar 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Xigmatek Dark Knight LGA1366

so i had a different cooler before, and it went bad, so I switched back to stock... now i ordered a different cooler, and got the Xigmatek Dark Knight LGA1366 cooler. And i must say, this thing is NICE for $40. It cools better then my previous cooler (Coolermaster V8) surprisingly... but since it went bad, it may not have been doing its full potential. Regardless I went with something a lil different... this thing is HUGE though. The craftsmanship is also very nice. The thermal grease that comes with it seems to also be high quality. It looks looking aftermarket cooler ive ever seen!!! The black nickle coating really stands out, and looks wonderful!

First shot is after 15+ minutes of prime95, and as you can see, hottest it got was 59celsius... but was holding steady at 57celsius... stock cooler was in the 70+ celsius range (Stock clocks, this is also on stock clock speed as well)

Coolermaster V8 did rather poor, and was in the mid 60's under load.

I am very happy

BTW, this is a core i7 920 setup/X-58 ASUS P6T Deluxe MB. I am about to take it up to 3.6ghz and see how she does. :-)

Here is the screenshot, and pics on first bootup
