A bit on the pricey side.
Expensive enthusiast product.

The Xigmatek is not as beautiful as the Dark Knight that we reviewed recently. It uses a similar fan and has a similar fin shape, but lacks the black nickel-plating.However, if we talk about performance, the Aegir is better. Probably thanks to its six...-

The Xigmatek Aegir is a very impressive CPU cooler in many ways, everything about it is executed the right way. The materials are excellent, the fins are heavy and not sharp, the contact points of the heat pipes are smoothed well, and the mounting...-

Even if the Aegir came with only one fan, it cooled with ease the CPU and the resulting temperatures put it at about the same level as the Noctua NH-U12P SE2, which, as we know, comes with two fans, for a push-pull configuration. However, it was...-
