Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler With Ceramic Coating

Xigmatek is coming up with a new series of CPU cooler called the “Dark Knight SD1283 – Night Hawk Edition”. It sounds really cool, like the dark force is in the work to keep your CPU as cool as possible with their fearful charismatic. Well, it’s not likely you’ll get the cursed force to work for your anyway, but this beast is actually pretty powerful in term of cooling down the monsters inside your CPU.


According to the specs list, Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Edition is supporting both Intel (LGA 2011/1366/1156/1155/775) and AMD (FM1/AM3+AM3/AM2+/AM2) processors. What a wide support, even the older processors are supported as well.

As for the features, this processor cooling fan is coming with 120mm Long life bearing fan that would operate at 1000 to 2200 RPM, a special ceramic coating for ultimate heat dissipation with three 8mm direct touch copper heatpipes connected to the fan.
