The heatsink of Xigmatek HDT-SD964 cooler is of very simple design. It is built on four copper heatpipes 6mm in diameter that form part of the cooler base (H.D.T. technology – Heat-pipe Direct Touch) and hold 42 aluminum plates. The heatsink plates are about 0.3 mm thick and are spaced out at a 2mm distance from one another. The heatsink measures 92 x 51 x 133 mm. The side edges of the heatsink plates are bent downwards and closed together:

 

 

The cooler base is covered with protective plastic film warning the user that it needs to be removed before cooler installation. The heatpipes in the cooler base are inserted in an aluminum plate, so that the distance between them is 3mm:

Such large gap between the heatpipes in the cooler base that contacts directly with the CPU heat-spreader will usually have a negative effect on the heat transfer and cooling efficiency of the system. At the same time, the base is very even, and its finish quality is quite fine for the coolers of this sort:

Xigmatek HDT-SD964 heatsink comes with a seven-blade 92 x 92 x 25 mm fan:
