Review: Xigmatek LOKI

Review: Xigmatek LOKI

created for


Some review samples from Xigmatek arrived. The first we will be looking at is the LOKI aka SD963. Xigmatek has been around for a little over 5 years. The company made a name for itself rather quickly and impressed many with good quality and performance oriented products. Xigmatek's "ICE" philosophy seems to be well applied and directly translates into the companies products.

"ICE" = Impressive / Creative / Essential

The LOKI is a 92mm H.D.T vertical airflow cooler. The implemented Heatpipe Direct Touch Design allows the copper heatpipes to make direct contact with the CPU's heat-spreader, thus allowing for direct heat transfer. The design specifically in this cooler employees 3 uncoated copper heatpipes with a 6mm diameter.

The cooler is outfitted with an exchangeable 92mm fan which is attached with rubber pins. The package includes a 2nd set of pins which can be used to attach a 2nd fan on the rear of the cooler to further enhance cooling. These features are a good combination and promise some good results.

Manufacturer Description:

Outstanding performance and quiet, LOKI SD963 outmatches other air coolers. 3pcs Φ6 mm heat-pipe design and light material fins, it provides outstanding heat dissipating efficiency and cooling performance.
