The Naked Coolers
I know you all want naked pictures, so here they are.
Here’s another naked pic, this time the Super Mega.
Now for some serious business, though. The heatsinks always have a specific finish, which can be graded from not-at-all to mirror-like. The Armageddon heatsink qualifies for nearly-not-at-all, which is a shame since better finished heatsinks allow for better heat transfer which results in better cooling c.q. lower temperatures, hence why people ‘lap’ their CPU and heatsinks.
The Super Mega heatsink isn’t a lot better, which is a shame since this cooler is supposed to replace one of the all-time best air coolers in CPU-cooling history, the Megahalem.
As per comparison, take a look at the Scythe MUGEN heatsink, being at least four years older to date, still has a better finish.
Comparing the actual heatsink sizes we can conclude that Prolimatech did a good job packing a lot of weight in a smaller sized Super Mega sink and squeezed their Megahalem model even more to produce the wide but thin Armageddon cooler.
