Xigmatek S126384 “Thor’s Hammer” CPU Cooler Review

Q6600 Performance Results

We really were disappointed with the Q6600 numbers. The fact of the matter is this cooler has at best only a mediocre base and has been designed with the larger i7 CPUs in mind. On the smaller 775 setup, all the heatpipes are not coming into contact with the CPU and in fact only 2 are doing most of the work with only the edges of the others helping along with the cooling. The only saving grace of this unit is the shear size of the fin array and it’s built-in cooling capabilities this affords it.
