The Prime SD1484 is one of the newer CPU cooler offering by Xigmatek.

Spent the morning fixing up 3 new fans into my rig. One was a kaze-maru 140mm fan, and the two others were red LED coolermaster fans. Fixed them up into my casing (Coolermaster 690) and that alone took me around 2 hours or so. Yeah I’m a total greenhorn in such stuff. Glad that I spent that amount of time though for I understood much more about my computer and how to fix one. Actually, after taking a look at the different wirings and where they went etc, I found out that it ain’t very difficult to build one yourself. I’ve so far fixed a graphics card myself and setup additional fans. Little by little I’m getting more and more used with this custom computer building thing.
