Xigmatek D984 Cobra
Today we’re testing the Xigmatek D984 Cobra CPU cooler that offers Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology in a small form 92mm fan setup. More importantly, however, is that the Cobra is a top-down cooler design, and we’ll be comparing it alongside its brother the Nepartak, which is a tower-style cooler. As we saw in our recent review of the Nepartak, it is a very impressive little cooler. In today’s test we’ll also be using a few other smaller coolers to compare results as well, and this should give a good indication of the efficiency of each design.
As usual, we’ll be using a Socket 1366 mount to find out how well these heatsinks can cool the Core i7 monster, particularly when highly overclocked.
Thanks go to our friends at Xigmatek for supplying the review sample.
