Xigmatek is announcing a new version of its 120-mm Tyr heatsink, designated the Tyr SD1264B. The redesign addresses long-standing complaints about overly large tower coolers by narrowing the fins at the bottom of the heatsink. The updated design should improve the cooler's compatibility with tall DIMMs or excessively-large motherboard heatsinks.
Xigmatek was one of the first companies to use the popular "heatpipe direct touch" design, and the company's S1283 model was a favorite of this writer. The Tyr continues that tradition, using four 6-mm heatpipes flattened on the bottom to transfer heat from the CPU's heat-spreader to the radiator. Xigmatek includes a 120-mm PWM-enabled fan that pushes 59 CFM of air at 2000 RPM. The fan's frame includes red LEDs, too. Xigmatek hasn't announced pricing yet.
