Temps sound right?

Using Coretemp from aoafiles, I'm getting a range of 32c idle to 46c wih incredible load on both cores in a 65-68 F room, with a Xigmatek 1283 HDT. I moved recently, and couldn't find my good TIM, so I gave it a first install with the white TIM that came with the cooler. I was a little concerned by the very low resistance of the locking mechanism.

The CPU is a 939 3800X2.

A word of warning to anyone considdering this cooler. It clears the window in my case (which is a fairly wide case.) by less than 1mm, or .039". Make sure it will fit your case if you decide to get one. Or get a particularly narrow case to insure that it will stick out the side, for that engine through the hood, muscle car look.

Thumbs up Big direct touch FHS...

Being as this is a very large "direct touch" heatpipe (8mm instead of 6mm heatpipes) heatsink, then temps should be that low...

I wouldn't mind having this cooler myself...
Hey PPM, check out this cooller, it's really good for air if you have the room for it!

That things got legs doesn't it? That doesn't bother my set up. I'M sure it limits a lot of rigs-and those platiic clips? Give me a break. I even ripped those off the stock Cooler.

Porpor, yes, it has a 4-hole mounting system for the Intel boards. Socket 939 uses the clip style.

I'm really tempted to find a narrow case for the "damn" factor of it sticking out of the case.

I can't believe that a cooler this good is only $25. I'm willing to bet that with a little more pressure on the cooler, and better TIM, it could keep the temps below 42 at full load. My Xigmatek Battle-Axe GPU cooler arrives today. It also sells for $25, and spanks thermalright's best offering. It's closed-bottom fin design is definitely what puts it over the top. Sadly, that same design limits the effectiveness of higher output fans. My 78 CFM 92mm delta screamers won't help on this cooler. It's going to keep it's stock fans.

Also, typically, when one breaks the plastic clips off, it is a result of the clip not being pushed toward the socket. It's a fairly wide slot you are putting the metal clip on, and the further away from the socket it rest, the more leverage it has. It is very important that you insure the clip is pushed toward the socket on both ends. Otherwise it will bite into the plastic and not slie to the inside as you lock it.

This cooler "can" be installed with the board in the case, but I would recommend removing the board so you can ensure it is centered.

Muffin, I noticed in your picture that you have the fan at the top of the cooler, does this work out for you? I put mine on the bottom, so the PSU fan would be helping it, rather than fighting it. My plan was to mount a duct on the underside of the PSU to force it to draw air directly off the back side of the 1283. I flipped my rear 120mm thermaltake fan to intake for mosfet cooling.

My spoiler didn't want to stay on the heatsink so I am not using it. Did you have better luck with yours?

I don't have this cooler, I have the Zalman CNPS-9700.
I borrowed those pics from the site posted in my last reply.
This is my system in the pic below.

Directron has it.

Xigmatek HDT-S1283 CPU Cooler CAC-SXHH3-U02 CPU Cooling for All Intel Socket 775 and All AMD Socket AM2 CPUs 120mm PWM Fan-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com

CPU cooler @ $29.99 now. Still on sale, but not as cheap as last week.

Don't buy the 1284, with it's pretty red fan for $10 more.

Xigmatek BATTLE-AXE VD964 Heat-pipe Direct Touch VGA Cooler CAV-D9HH4-N01 GPU Cooler Twin Hypro Bearing Fans-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com

The Battle-Axe GPU cooler @ 24.99. Make sure you have a heat spreader on your gpu, or the results may not match the reviews. Without a heat spreader, you are relying on the aluminum primary heatsink to conduct heat to the outer 2 pipes, as only the inside 2 will rest on the core. Resist the urge to buy larger fans for it. You will see NO benefit, beyond the noise rawr-factor.

You will want to buy a fan splitter, as the 4 pin connector on the 1283 was compatible electrically with a 3 pin header, but not physically, due to a cap next to the header on my board. The Battle-Axe comes with one, but it needs it.

installation note: Do not use the ram sinks without a heatspreader either. they will interfere with the heat pipes and keep the cooler from sitting flat on the core. (I do not have a heat spreader on my MSI 8800GT/512OC)

I just bought it! Thru bolting isn't a problem, I was doing that with the stock cooler. I might have to conceder a backplate on this badboy though.
Same goes for th heat spreader, there up for consideration after I see how it lays out on the board.
I see no reason to pay for a back plate- I can fabricate one of those.

The batle-axe arrived, and I installed it before I left. Very quiet, and while it does block 3 PCI slots, it's only just barely. One could use slim fans and ditch the shroud (non-functional eye candy) and have room for that third slot to be usable.

Directron has 12mm thick 100mm fans with 92/100 dual mounting hole pattern 1000rpm for $7.99, 2000rpm for $8.99. Considering the restriction in the exit from the heatsink, I think these would be just as good as the 25mm fans it came with. They would not fit in the shroud though, so it would have to go.

http://directron.com/sy1012sl12l.html 1000RPM

http://directron.com/sy1012sl12m.html 2000RPM

This would make it fit just as well as the thermalright.

You either have a case that's 7" from the mobo to the side of the case or you're going to have to cut a hole in the side for it to stick out.

As far as height it's 159mm which = 6.2598" tall.
Mine is 1.42mm which = 5.5906" tall & it barely clears the side.

My case is pretty fat, and it barely clears. I kinda wish it didn't fit. I'd like to see it sticking out the side.

Orentation needs to be establablished. Reference is the heat sink. OK?
Clarify for me. The Xigmatek 1283 HDT is 6.2528" from the heat sink, or mounting holes, to the top of the pipes? That clears my side pannel by approx 1/2in.

Then what is the 5.5906"? The only other possible problem is the PSU.

The Xigmatek 1283 Heatsink = 6.2598" tall.
I thought that my Zalman cooler was pretty tall until I saw this one.

I was just comparing my Zalman cooler's height to the one you just bought is all. (Zalman CNPS9700 = 5.5906" tall. which is almost 6" tall but the Xigmatek 1283 HDT is over 6" tall)

The Xigmatek 1283 HDT is 6.2528" tall from the base of the cooler to the top of the heatpipes I do believe.
Which means if I bought this HS it wouldn't fit inside my case with the side panel on because I only have 6" between the
CPU mount & the side of my case.

Sorry, I posted that yesterday & I hadn't had any sleep in 3 days...
Thank God I got some sleep lastnight. I feel 100% better & can think so much clearer.

I sure know about that! Terrible way to try to live!
It's as I first caculated, it fits in my case. The slide out tray is useless but it is with the Freezer anyway.
The place I ordered from-Directron.com- is one of those that ship by camel- won't be here untill the 12th.
I'm not OC'ing yet any way. Getting 2 IDE channels to play with a board that is designed for one isn't easy. Probly has somthing to do with cheap cards!

They medicated the spasms and jerks away so I'm re-scedualled for sleep study on Sunday evening. that's fun too.

How do you sleep with a bunch of wires & sensors hooked up to you?
I toss & turn too much for any of that to stay connected to me...

I just have to jump through the hoops I have to jump through. You already know that-I'm a little surprised you even asked the question.
Back to temps.
I thought I was going to bring it all together so I could make a serious run at 4.0. I know it can be done because I've seen the screen shots. The ducks just arn't going to line up this time. I wen't looking for verification but I didn't find it and Mareen wants to watch The Highway Men-Johnny Cash-Willy Nelson, Kris Kristoffreson, and Waylon Jennings. Good stuff.
Here is a link. Think it can't be done?

Well, it was kinda hot in the room the other day, and I've been through a couple heat cycles and added the battle-axe gpu cooler. Now even while gaming, never over 36c, in a 17c room, which is right on par with the benchmarks, so i guess the white goop they send with it is pretty good stuff.
