Aftermarket cooling manufacturers', Xigmatek, has unveiled the latest in its line of heatsinks named Thor's Hammer. If you squint your eyes very tightly I guess it does bear some resemblance to the god of thunder's short-handled hammer, however, it does look like quite a formidable CPU cooler.
But what's most impressive about this cooler is the use of seven heat-pipes. Four U-shaped 8mm ones in a Heatpipe Direct arrangement (meaning they physically touch the CPU) and three more U-shaped 6mm heatpipes sitting above them.
You can mount one or two 120mm fans to the Thor's Hammer. The cooler is compatible with all current CPU sockets (including LGA-1366) and pricing comes in at 56.90 Euro.
Will Xigmatek's Thor's Hammer offer performance similar the best air coolers on the market? Discuss in our forum
