Prolimatech Unveils Megahalems Basic CPU Coolers

Prolimatech Megahalems may rank among the best CPU air coolers, but starts at a relatively high $70. The company unveiled new cost-effective variants, under the Megahalems Basic line. The Megahalems Basic-81 maintains the same dimensions as the original, with the same number of fins, except the 81 expensive aluminum fins (across both stacks) are replaced by stainless steel ones. The heat pipes and base are still made of copper, with the base even being given a mirror finish. The Basic-81 is priced at just $32.

Next up is the Basic-45, a compact aluminum fin tower heatsink that uses 45 fins to which heat is conveyed by four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which draw heat from a copper base. The cooler ships "no-frills," with just the retention kit. You add your own fan. It's priced at just $14. The company is also said to be working on a slightly larger cooler, the Basic-48, which features 48 aluminum fins, and three nickel-plated copper heat pipes.

Prolimatech Readies Cool-Blue Megahalems Rev. B CPU Cooler

Even as GIGABYTE is shedding its signature blue PCB color scheme for higher-end motherboards, leaving it to entry-thru-mid range products, Prolimatech is giving its flagship CPU cooler, the Megahalems Rev. B, a cool-blue finish in its new variant. This is almost exactly the same shade of blue as the one Gigabyte uses on its motherboards (refer to the third picture below). Most of the cooler's 88 stainless steel fins are blue, with the top fins on each of the two stacks retaining a chrome finish. The six 6 mm-thick heat pipes passing through them are made of nickel-plated copper, while most metal parts of the retention modules are colored black. The cooler otherwise retains the same specifications of the Megahalems Rev. B, including support for the latest CPU socket types, such as LGA2011. Prolimatech could charge a tiny premium over the original's US $70 price-tag.

Prolimatech Black Series Genesis CPU Cooler Launched

Prolimatech, the master of cooling is going a step further after the success of the Prolimatech Megahalems by presenting another revolution in CPU cooling with the limited edition Prolimatech Black Series Genesis. Besides the immaculate quality - which is present across their entire product line-up - the Black Genesis sets new standards in cooling capability and cool looks.

Prolimatech continues the trend set by the Megahalems and Super Mega by utilising two separate towers, but instead of placing them next to each other, they have been rearranged for maximum performance. The large array of cooling fins can hold up to three 120 or 140 mm fans, two of which can be installed right out of the box with the included mounting materials. Besides keeping the CPU cool, the construction allows for direct air flow across critical areas like the memory and power phases of the system.

Prolimatech Designs Camouflage Series Heatsinks to Complement ASUS TUF Sabertooth

In late June, Prolimatech unveiled its latest variant of the Megahalems heatsink, the Black Edition, which has a grainy matte surface that is designed to radiate heat better than the smooth piano-black fins on the Super Mega (an older black-colored Megahalems variant). Now, Prolimatech is taking it further with the Camouflage series of heatsinks based on the Megahalems and Genesis heatsink designs. The two feature fin stacks that are mostly black, but with a dash of pale green that blends perfectly with the color of chipset and VRM heatsinks on ASUS TUF Sabertooth series motherboards.

Both heatsinks feature fins with matte surfaces. The Megahalems Camouflage is an aluminum fin dual-stack tower-type heatsink. Six nickel-plated copper heat pipes pass through the base, making a U-shape. On each of the two arms of the "U", is an independent stack of fins. Some of the upper fins have a dash of the pale green color. The Genesis Camouflage has a unique heatsink design in which six heat pipes that pass through the base convey heat to two differently oriented aluminum fin stacks: one propagates perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard, the other parallel to it, hovering over the memory area. Pricing and availability details are not known.

Prolimatech Intros Megahalems Black Series CPU Heatsink

Prolimatech released a new variant of its iconic Megahalems CPU heatsink, called the Black Series Megahalems. With the same exact dimensions as the original at 130 x 158.7 x 74 mm (LxWxH), the new variant uses black colored aluminum fins. The coating doesn't make for a polished, glossy surface, but a grainy one, which increases surface area. The design remains the same: six nickel-plated copper heat pipes pass through a base, conveying heat to two aluminum fin stacks that are arranged along each arm of the U-shape the heat pipes make. The Black Series Megahalems is compatible with all the current CPU socket types, including AMD AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2; Intel LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, and LGA775. The Prolimatech Megahalems Black Series is listed on Caseking.de for €54.90.

Prolimatech Revises Megahalems CPU Cooler

Prolimatech is out with a new revision of its flagship Megahalems CPU cooler. The new Revision B of Megahalems updates it for the LGA 1156 socket, and adds to its features, a little. While the heatsink itself retains the same design, changes are made to the retention module, which now features mount holes for socket LGA 1156, apart from its usual support for sockets LGA 1366, LGA 775, and AM3/AM2+/AM2. The bundle now includes four fan clips (two sets), instead of two (one set) on the older version. This allows you to install 120 mm fans on either-sides of the heatsink. The new revision B Prolimatech Megahalems has started selling in Europe for 55 EUR.

Prolimatech Intros PK-1 Thermal Compound

Prolimatech, the Taiwanese manufacturer whose claim to fame has been the Megahalems CPU cooler, introduced its first thermal compound. The PK-1 boasts of some very bold numbers as far as its specifications go. The compound edges past the recently announced Arctic Cooling MX-3 in terms of thermal conductivity, at 10.2 W/m °C. It has a specific gravity of 3.2 g/m³. Each 5 g syringe is bundled with a plastic card that serves as a spatula to spread the compound over the heat source. European e-tailer Caseking.de has it listed for 9.90 Euro.

Prolimatech Prepares a Fleet of Monster CPU Coolers

Prolimatech packs the large CPU cooler design ideology with DFI's LANParty branding from DFI. The company started off with the Megahalems cooler that received good reviews. PC Games Hardware sourced pictures and drawings of some really fascinating, yet large CPU coolers in the works by the company, from German retailer Caseking.de, before officially listing the products. To succeed the Megahalems, the company has three new coolers named Genesis, Jericho, and The Mammoth.

Some of the most audacious designs ever imagined, have taken shape, and may be ready to hit the market. The drawings show Jericho to be a medium-to-large cooler with stacked aluminum-fin blocks, and a fan that circulates air. The Mammoth and Genesis have a peculiar staged heat-column design. For The Mammoth, the CPU contact-block gives out numerous heatpipes that convey heat to two staged aluminum fin arrays with dedicated air-flows, both of which are along the plane of the motherboard. The Genesis, on the other hand uses a slightly different design, with an array perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. There is no word on exactly when these coolers get listed.

Further Details of DFI CPU Cooler Turn Up - Prolimatech Megahalems

Some of you may have read the news post about the DFI CPU cooler, spotted on one of their boards. Not a lot of information has been made available, but we got the specifications right here for you. The cooler is made by Prolimatech, a firm established in 2008. This means that the cooler is not from Thermalright, as previously believed. It could also be possible, that the image of the DFI board with the cooler used means nothing and that DFI will not be entering the CPU cooler business after all. The "Megahalems" cooler comes with the following features:
  • Minimal air resistance between fins allowing best balance between noise and performance in range of 800-1200RPM
  • Heatpipes are lined up in a straight line to prevent air back draft allowing air to easily pass through the heatsink body
  • Wide fins with mathematically calculated thickness to maximize best air-to-surface cooling rate
  • Uniquely designed, easy-to-install socket 775 and 1366 retention mechanism to increase cooling ability.
  • Easy to apply, high grade thermal compound, a perfect sidekick to all Prolimatech heatsinks

The unit is already listed at various shops for just under 60€ and should be available at the beginnging of March. Read on for the coolers full specifications.
