Xigmatek hasn't been around the PC aftermarket for as long as some other companies, but they've certainly made a splash, marketing some very innovative designs (including pioneering work in the direct touch heatpipe design) to good reviews from customers and the press alike. We've gotten the chance to evaluate most of the coolers and cases in their lineup and been very impressed. This time out we've got Xigmatek's Gaia SD 1283 cooler in the lab for evaluation. For product names, Xigmatek often turns to characters from Norse mythology, but they've turned to the ancient Greeks this time. Gaia is the primordial Earth mother goddess in the Greek pantheon. According to historiand, Gaia was primarily manifest in enclosed spaces: the house, the courtyard, the womb, the cave. Can Gaia find a home in the enclosed space of your computer case? Follow along and see. Purpose and targets of becoming one of the worlds leaders in thermal PC Industry were set for Xigmatek Co. Ltd in 2005, the founding year! To ensure reaching this project aims, Xigmateks management followed up with hard work, experiences and customer friendly business style.
With its wide range of coolers, the Xigmatek product line can be somewhat overwhelming. This Gaia SD1283 air cooler is a performance 120mm cooler. If you're looking for the next step up in cooling, it provides all the high-performance options you would want in this level of kit. First, it ships with a decent 56.3cfm, 120mm fan with an upper 1500rpm speed. The Gaia SD1283 itself uses three 8mm heatpipes that use a Direct Touch in the cooling block to maximise heat transfer. These pass the heat up to the 160mm high, 120mm wide cooling fins. For more advanced cooling, it can also handle a twin-fan cross-flow installation.For mechanical fixing it uses a relatively complex universal bracket that's made up of a lot of pieces, the advantage being that it covers all of Intel's sockets and the same for AMD, including the legacy K8 options such as 754, 939 and 940. To give the cooler a run for its money, we fully installed it onto an overclocked Intel Core 2 E6700 processor. We took an ambient air temperature reading, an unloaded temperature reading and another when the CPU had been running with a full load for a number of minutes.
