The CPU cooling industry is filled similar-looking products. After all, it's difficult to reinvent the wheel without it looking like, well, a wheel. So some manufacturers take a combination of design aspects and package them into their own product, which is what Kingwin has done with the XT-1264 cooler. The original patent holder for Heat-Pipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology continues to mix and match options, and the Kingwin XT-1264 is the hybrid result of design aspects implemented in the Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer CR-CCTF along with aspects of the SilenX IXC-120HA2. At the time of this writing, the XT-1264 cost $34.99 at NewEgg.
Kingwin XT-1264 Features
Overclockers have had positive things to say about other similarly-designed coolers, and Kingwin hopes that the XT-1264 will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. Four large heat-pipes span up the sides in a 'U' shaped configuration, and the tension-based clip system applies above average pressure to the contact surface. Designed to fit Intel LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets, as well as AMD AM3/AM2/754/939/940 sockets, the Kingwin XT-1264 could be the universal fit for overclocking projects. As of August 2009 the Kingwin XT-1264 was available at NewEgg for $36.99, which is approximately average for cooler prices.
