The Genesis has a smart design. Where the vertical heatsink has an optional fan pointing at the case exhaust, the horizontal heatsink aims its fan directly over the RAM, high profile RAM is not an option. Another option is to install the cooler 90 degrees rotated, then the horizontal part will cover the Northbridge but block PCI slots and the vertical part will point up, so you’ll need an exhaust on the top of your case. Either way: Something gets blocked.
Both heatsinks are rather thin but shining on the top of the vertical cooler is the Prolimatech logo.
Sticking out of both heatsinks are the heatpipes. In my opinion these should have a better finish. If a cooler should look good, especially the details should be finished well; these heatpipes look raw and are not even cut on the same length.
The cooler is sturdy. It doesn’t feel as if one could pull out one of the heatsinks from the central sink. Also all the fins are in good condition and don’t get bent easily.
The base sink is covered with a sticker to prevent any damage to it, which could result in cooling degradation.
Sadly, this wasn’t the case. The contact surface of the base sink was already scratched. This is what thermal paste is also for, but not very professional.
Prolimatech was nice enough to supply me with two of their 140mm 1000RPM Blue Vortex fans, which I also used for the Super Mega review; excellent low noise fans!
The fans make the cooler look more impressive but also show that the horizontal heatsink and its cooler will partially block incoming air for the vertical heatsink.
