Kingwin’s XT-1264 cooler is an example of that notion where a company wishes for us to look at things a bit differently. This cooler employs their Heatpipe Touch Chip (HTC) technology, where heatpipes touch the chip instead of the case. What? That sounds awfully familiar, doesn’t it? Yes, it’s the same design as HDT but a different name. A rose by any other name, as it were……though I doubt Shakespeare envisioned this application.

Regardless what it’s called, the fact remains that this technology is extremely effective in its cooling efficiency for hot processors. Naming aside, Performance is King and we’re very interested in seeing how well the Kingwin XT-1264 stacks up against other HDT/HTC coolers on a highly overclocked Core i7 monster. It looks rather unassuming and it’s priced pretty well, so let’s see if it has the dash for the cash.
