Xigmatek S983 Nepartak
Big, beefy powerhouse CPU coolers may garner most of the attention in the enthusiast race for top cooling performance, but not every horse is a thoroughbred. There is a very large segment of the consumer population that is quite content to want something that is simple and straightforward, and will offer good performance at a great price. And that is part of the key distinction here, as top quality products that are affordable are a rather rare breed.
Today we’re testing the Xigmatek S983 Nepartak CPU cooler that offers Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology in a small form 92mm fan setup. We’ve seen the big boy Xigmatek coolers rule the roost in our extensive 1366 air cooler testing so far, so it will be interesting to see if they can continue the winning streak with a decidedly smaller product, especially on a highly overclock Core i7 monster.
Let’s find out.
