Xigmatek
As I said. It's(my COOLERMASTER) ordered, and a little to late. It has a 7 day opened warranty. So maybe I dicide it doesn't work after 6 days :P

And they're exactly the same thing mine just has a silent fan. Copper heat pipes, 92MM fan @ 22dbA, about the same size.

um, no, they're not the same thing, not even close, in appearance or performance, this is what you ordered according to your link...



it's nothing like either Xigmatek that has been linked...

meh, I don't get into the rounded look the fan gives, but yeah, they are somewhat alike, but then so are most heatsinks and fans if you really think about it, but you should've read the reviews, they're on opposite ends of the spectrum in performance...
