Xigmatek Prime Review
Fitting the Xigmatek prime is a simple two stage affair, in many ways almost identical to the Enermax ETS-T40 which if you've read that review you'll know filled me with a sense of happiness and well being. The same sense that all is right with the world is felt when fitting the Prime. Nice easy to understand instructions, with clearly labelled parts and options for many many sockets to be accommodated. A single reversible backplate provides mounting for all supprted AMD and Intel sockets, with pass through bolts going from back to front and being held securely by front side plates. The heat-sink is then positioned with a cross bar locking it in place by means of spring tensioned screws. You have to fit the heat-sink without the fans attached of course which is typical for a cooler of this size, and like most medium to large sized coolers attaching the fans after can be a bit of a fiddle. Start to finish you're looking at around ten minutes to do the job. No bleeding knuckles were sustained and no swearwords were used.
As i've said in the past, if this section's short then that's a good thing. And as this section's very short then this must be a very good thing indeed.
