Xigmatek announces Dark Knight Frostbourne Edition CPU cooler

CPU cooler maker Xigmatek has come up with a new processor cooler known as Dark Knight Frostbourne Edition.

The new company product is all white, unlike the recently announced all black Dark Knight SD1283 and features three 8 mm-thick aluminum U-shaped heatpipes that make direct contact with the CPU. The fins on the other hand feature Xigmatek’s own Stealth ceramic coating that helps increase surface area and lower CPU temperature. Thus the Dark Knight Frostbourne Edition can cool CPUs with TDPs of up to 160 watts.

The specs continue with support for all modern CPU sockets including Intel’s LGA2011/1366/1156/1155/1150/775 and AMD’s AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2 and FM2+/FM2/FM1. The cooler’s fan spins between 800 and 1400 rpm and produces noise as low as 16 dB but even then it can push 60 CFM of air through the fins.

Measuring 120 x 50 x 159 mm (WxDxH) and with an overall weight of 406 grams, the Xigmatek Dark Knight Frostbourne Edition will be available for around USD 50.
