Xigmatek Durin D982 CPU Cooler goes for the low profile approach

The trend towards even larger tower heatsinks causes a bit of a problem in the confined spaces of small form factor cases and there are very few slim profile coolers on the market so it’s always nice to see some added competition.

Xigmatek’s Durin D982 CPU Cooler brings the direct heatpipe cooling technology to the slim cooler line hoping to improve performance despite the reduced cooling surface area. Tweaknews has the review:

Featuring Xigmatek’s pioneering direct touch heatpipe design and a 92mm PWM fan, the Durin should pack some powerful cooling performance into a small (3.6 x 4.7 x 2.6 inches for the metrically challenged among us,) package. The two large 8mm copper heatpipes and the aluminum base and fins provide a sturdy platform for the fan and its anti-vibration rubber mounting solution. With an extremely low profile and small acoustic footprint, this cooler could be a natural for small form factor cases and HTPC applications.

A slick little cooler but don’t expect bleeding edge performance out of the poor little thing.
