Looking at the Loki SD963
The Loki is the smallest of the coolers we are looking at today. Coming in at 134mm tall it is also the smallest cooler we have put on our Core i7 test system to date, other than the stock Intel HSF. The Loki comes with a single 92mm fan that pushes 52 CFM, spinning 1200 to 2800 RPM at 20 to 28 dBA. The Loki can be set up for push pull by adding another 92mm fan. Xigmatek does include the mounts for a second fan.

Looking from the top of the Loki we can see the fin shape is symmetrical with a saw tooth profile. The channels in the 4 corners are for the fan mounts to slide into.
The Loki has three 6mm U shaped heatpipes.
Xigmatek provides everything that is needed to mount the Loki to any of the Intel LGA sockets and AMD K8, AM2, AM3 sockets. Also included are enough fan mounts to mount two fans, and thermal paste.
Here we have the Loki installed into our Intel Core i7 test system.
