Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Exposed Heatpipe Base Heatsink Review
Overall Rating:   97%
Abstract: The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 heatsink features three heatpipes in direct contact with the top of the processor, resulting in one very potent CPU cooler. The technique is called heatpipe Direct Touch, and for today's class of heatspreader capped processors it's the only way to go.

FrostyTech Mk.II Synthetic Thermal Heatsink Test Results
AMD Athlon64 / FX / X2 & Sempron class heatsinks
Results based on readings from a 38x38mm copper interface die with 125W heat load on the K8 version of the Mk.II Test Platform. Temperature results listed for each heatsink were calculated by determining the rise over ambient temperatures at time of test. Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.

125W Thermal Test (°C) Noise Level (dBA)
*Heatsinks are ranked according to the 125W Thermal Test results column (rise over ambient temp.). Low temperatures with low noise levels are considered best. For reference heatsinks with variable-speed fans, only the high speed (12V) fan test result is included in the comparison sheet; more detailed results reside in each specific heatsink review.

With a 125W heat load applied by the FrostyTech AMD K8 synthetic thermal test platform, the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 heatsink yields a rise above ambient temperature of just 14.2°C at full fan speed (50.7dBA noise). As we decrease fan speed to 1000RPM, the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is still able to maintain a very impressive temperature of 15.6°C over ambient. Noise output falls to 35.0 dBA!

For such a significant drop in noise, the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 heatsink runs just 1.4°C warmer on the K8 platform! The results for this heatsink on the Intel LGA775 version of FrostyTech's synthetic thermal test platform are next.
