Conclusion

XIGMATEK Thor's Hammer proved not only a good cooler for extremely hot overclocked CPUs, but took a well deserved place among the best air coolers. At this point it is important to understand that Thor's Hammer needs two fans instead of one to be installed on it in order to reveal its full potential. Therefore, you have to add another $10-$15 for a pair of high-quality fans to the already pretty high price of the cooler (around $60). The complete cooling solution turns out not so cheap in the end, so it may be pretty hard for it to compete against Scythe Mugen 2 or even Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT. Actually, the price of the cooler is that one thing that we are not very happy about in regards to XIGMATEK Thor's Hammer: everything else about this cooler is superb. As far as we know, XIGMATEK is going to lower the price of their Thor's Hammer cooler shortly. I guess we will have to wait and see how low they are willing to go. :)
