Xigmatek presents the Aegir SD128264, the first heatsink to feature "Double Layer with Heat-pipe Direct Touch" or DLHDT. This heatpipe design involves four heatpipes (two 6mm plus two 8mm heatpipes) that make direct contact with the base of your processor, and another two heatpipes that make direct contact with the four other heatpipes. The six heatpipes dissipate the heat to the aluminium fin array, which is cooled by two 120mm white LED PWM fans with a noise level of 20dBA. The 630g heavy cooler comes with mounting kits for all contemporary processors, including LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775 and Socket AM2/AM2+/AM3. Pricing and availability is unknown.
The design involves four heatpipes, of which two are 8 mm thick and two are 6 mm thick (alternating), making direct contact with the processor, with another set of two heatpipes making direct contact with these four HDT heat pipes, so that some of the processor's heat is indirectly offloaded to those heatpipes between the two sets of heat pipes. In all, the six heat pipes disperse heat to various parts of the aluminum fins.
