The Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition has an excellent cooling performance, especially when taking into account that it is a medium-size cooler with only one 120 mm fan. In our system, it doesn’t interfere with any memory socket, allowing us to install memory modules with tall heatsinks in any socket if that is what we want.
The noise level is reasonable for a high-performance CPU cooler, and the Night Hawk looks really cool inside the case, with its “stealth-like” coating and the semi-transparent fan with white LEDs. The price tag is very attractive, too.
In short, the Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition has great performance, good noise level, great look, and an excellent price/performance ratio, deserving our Golden Award.
