Xigmatek introduces Janus, a low-profile HSF with a nickel-plated copper base, six 6mm diameter nickel-plated copper heatpipes, and a large auminium fin array. There are two fans but they're arranged in a somewhat unusual top-flow push-pull configuration. The top fan is a 120mm PWM model, it spins at 800 - 1200RPM with a max airflow of 38.42CFM at a noise level of 22.4dBA, while the bottom fan is a 2000RPM 80mm model with max airflow of 13.53CFM at a noise level of 19.2dBA.

The cooler measures 120mm x 110mm x 45mm (without fan) and weighs 317g (430g with fual fans). The kit includes Xigmatek's Universal Mounting Kit for Intel LGA Socket 755, 1155, 1150, 1156, 1366, 2011 and AMD Socket AM2 / AM2+/ AM3 / AM3+ / FM1 / FM2
Janus is the god of beginnings and transitions, gates, doors, endings and time. Janus is a two-faced god which has the ability to look into the future and past. Xigmatek continues to innovate once again, this time adopting Janus to be the name that will be heard for many years to come in the CPU cooling industry. Janus is one of the world’s thinnest low-profile coolers. Standing at a height of 60mm Janus can virtually fit in any case.
