Kingwin Technology makes a wide assortment of products from cases, to power supplies to media players and most things in between.  As is the case with many computer component manufacturers, Kingwin can trace their roots back to CPU coolers.  Kingwin's newest cooler is based on the proven exposed heatpipe design we have seen and praised before. This newest cooler, the XT-1264 has all the ingredients of a high power cooler at a low price point that is socket 1366 ready.  Today, thanks to the good people at Kingwin we have a look at this cooler and what it brings to the table.


  • Application: Intel: Socket 1366/775/Core i7/Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo/Pentium Extreme Edition/Celeron D
    AMD: Socket AM2/754/939/940/Athlon 64/FX/X2/Opteron/Sempron

  • Observed Dimensions: 121mm x 75 x 150mm

  • Observed Weight: 607 gms

  • Construction: Aluminum fins / Copper Heatpipes

  • Fan Size: 120 x 25mm

  • Fan Speed: Variable rate 700 ~ 2300 RPM

  • Fan Noise: 34.5 ~ 38 dBA

  • Air Flow: 82 ~ 101 CFM

  • 4-Pin with PWM Connector

The Unit

What we find as we remove the Kingwin XT-1264 from its packaging is a tried and true heatpipe cooler with a vertical orientation.  In addition to the cooler is mounting hardware to fit most every Intel and AMD application on the market right now, a small installation guide, some silver colored thermal paste (sorry no details on what type) and a thermal goo spreader.

The stacked convection fins are stamped with the ends folding up and closing off each side of the XT-1264.  What this does is increase the velocity of the air moving across the fins and therefore its efficiency.
