Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. C CPU Cooler Review
Luke Hill / 8 years ago
Prolimatech’s Megahalems is a cooler which has been around for many years. It has long been a favourite in the enthusiast market due to its ability to offer excellent performance when coupled with the correct fan, a choice which Prolimatech leave down to the end user. Limited compatibility has always been its let down with only a select few sockets being natively supported in the cooler’s out-of-the-box configuration. Prolimatech aim to solve the compatibility issues with their Megahalems Rev. C cooler so that it can become a force to be reckoned with.
The Megahalems is a single tower CPU cooler which is split down the centre by an air pressure-enhancing channel. 6 nickel-plated, U-shaped, 6mm copper heatpipes connect the flat, nickel-plated base to an aluminium fin array. 2 pairs of fan clips allow users to install a pair of 120 or 140mm fans of their choice in a single or push-pull configuration. Prolimatech also offer separately-available 38mm wide fan clips for users looking to unleash some extreme cooling potential with 38mm thick fans. At a height of 158.7mm and weight of 790g without fans, the Megahalems can certainly be considering beastly in size when it comes to single tower CPU coolers.
Prolimatech solve previous issues on the Rev. C by offering native support for all modern Intel and AMD sockets excluding LGA 2011 which requires the use of separate mounting hardware. With a retail price of £46.99/€51,90 without fans, the Megahalems is rapidly approaching the pricing territory which is held by the dual tower CPU coolers. Can Prolimatech’s updates to their tried and tested Megahalems prove that it is still a worthy option in a dual-tower dominated segment of the market?
