Xigmatek Dark Knight II – Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler

Today we will be taking a look at something new to the PC thermal world. Interestingly, for all the car enthusiasts out there, this may be something you have seen before. This is technology you likely have not seen in a computer on your desktop, but it's very possible you may have seen it in a heavily modded hot rod sitting in your driveway. We are going to be looking at a new CPU Cooler from Xigmatek. It's called the Dark Knight II - Night Hawk Edition Cooler. It uses what they call "stealth" technology which basically means the heatsink has been ceramic coated to provide additional thermal dissipation. This is first of its kind technology we have seen used on a CPU Cooler, and today we will see how it stacks up to its more traditional competitors. To talk a little more about what's in store, the Xigmatek Dark Knight II - Night Hawk Edition Cooler may look like your typical tower cooler available on the market; however, its thermal technology is a little more unique. The Ceramic coated aluminum fins along with a direct copper base design gets our imagination wondering just how well this cooler might perform. Before we move on, let's learn a little more about Xigmatek.
