A few years ago Xigmatek hit the scene and started off the whole trend of having heatsinks where the heatpipes directly touched the processor instead of going into a copper base.
This meant that heatsinks would have much better contact with the processor itself meaning lower temperatures. These heatsinks also came out at very affordable prices. It has beeen a few years since those first units came out and the designs have improved as well. Today we will be taking a look at the Xigmatek Prime heatsink.
