Prolimatech Super Mega and Armageddon

Coolers

Conclusion

Who needs these coolers? Anyone who wants a silent and overclocked rig. This is not for people that want to have everything as small, cheap and light as possible; it’s serious business.

The Prolimatech Armageddon is for anyone who wants to have a decent air cooler to get more out of their system when overclocking and still keeping good temperatures.

The Prolimatech Super Mega is for power users who enter overclocking contests and simply want to use the best of the best.

That said, XSReviews.co.uk awards the Armageddon 3.5 out of 5 stars for a proper product, but in the end not too cheap and fits in the party of generic heatsinks. The Super Mega scores a bit better with 4 out of 5 stars for extreme performance, but with a high price to pay for.

The AMD mounting kit is, of course, only of interest to AMD users, but too expensive to be a serious consideration for most since it only supports Prolimatech sinks.

I can, on the other hand, recommend the Blue Vortex 140mm fan to anyone who needs a decent 140mm fan; it’s silent and pushes a good lot of air.
