You can't buy this heatsink yet, but when the new Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE hits store shelves, you're gonna have to know whether you can afford not to have it. It's good, according to Frostytech.
"The Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE heatsink is an extension of the Achilles model, built on the same great frame but with a new fan that offers identical performance and just about the same noise values. At full tilt the HDT-1284EE barely purrs at 44.2dBA, while the Achilles hums away at 42.7dBA. The Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE heatsink features an "exposed heatpipe base" that stacks up very well in the competitive world of AMD and Intel processor cooling."
