We are very happy to introduce to you a new player in the cooling solutions market – the XIGMATEK Company. Founded in 2005, this company is still quite young, but already has a number of impressive products to offer. Among them are such solutions as AIO-S80DP compact CPU liquid-cooling system; a processor cooler called HDT-D1264, very similar to Thermaltake Big Typhoon but with the heatpipe direct touch technology; AIO PI-UN7 graphics card cooling solution.
However, although today we are not going to focus on any of the above listed products, you won’t be disappointed. The solution we will introduce to you today, the new HDT-S963 cooler (CAC-S9HH3-U01) with H.D.T. technology (Heatpipe Direct Touch), is an extremely interesting product as well, and quite efficient, as you will see from this article. But let’s start from the very beginning.
Please, welcome XIGMATEK HDT-S963!

Package and Accessories
The cooler arrived in a small white carton box without any design or inscriptions. It was evidently not the retail package, although it doesn’t really matter that much:
There is a transparent plastic window in the middle of the box front. You can see the cooler fan through it. At the bottom of the box there were two small plastic bags with all the accessories nicely sorted out. Namely there were the following things:
- Two retention brackets for mainboards with LGA775 socket;
- Retention bracket for mainboards with Socket 654/939/940 and Socket AM2;
- Two screws for LGA775 socket retention;
- 1g pack of SilMORE thermal grease.
