Xigmatek Prime Review
Up Close: Single fan configuration.
As the Prime can be run with either single or dual fan set up I thought I'd show each in turn. Starting of course with a picture of it naked as the day it was born.
The Prime stands 159mm high with a width of 145mm. With a single fan attached the depth of the prime comes in at 90mm. In the set up I used this was just enough to interfere with any tall heatsinked RAM I may have installed on the first slot of my MOBO. As it was, with just the 2nd 4th and 6th slots filed I had no issues. The fan that comes included within the box is of the 4 pin PWM variety as pictured below.
At 140mm wide the fan covers every part of the heat-sink and does to some extent overlap the edges at the top and bottom, I guess making sure there's not even a small part of the prime that goes without air being blown over it. From the picture in the bottom left, taken through the heat-sink from the rear we can see that the heat-pipes are quite evenly spaced with a slight bias to the outer edges over the centre.
