Prolimatech Super Mega
When we reviewed the Prolimatech Megahalems awhile back, we found it to be a big, brash, highly effective CPU heatsink that could easily tame a hot, overclocked Core i7. In fact, it was the best cooler we had seen to that point. But as is often the case, being the top dog on the block in the tech world can be fleeting, and the newest 140mm coolers gave quite a push to this 120mm monster. In response, Prolimatech went back to the drawing board and has released the Super Mega.
At first glance, it looks like just the Megahalems, and in fact, it is almost the same. But there are few important tweaks that appear to improve upon the predecessor; namely, replacing some aluminum fins with copper ones, greater contact mount pressure, and an improve fan clip design that also allows for 140mm fans in a push-pull configuration.
By spec alone, these upgrades would seem to be an enthusiast’s dream, taking one of the top coolers on the market and making it better. But as we know, paper specs do not necessarily make for a tangible improvement out in the real world. We decided to put the Super Mega to the test, to find out if it can indeed surpass the Megahalems in cooling performance or not.
Read on to find out how it fared.
