Excerpt: Prolimatech Armageddon is one of the best cooling solutions around, and you might've noticed that we’ve been including it in our comparison tables for quite some time. Still, despite us using it as a nice reference point for testing other CPU coolers, we haven’t had the chance to talk more about it. Armageddon hit the shelves sometime in March 2010 and has racked up quite an impressive number of awards.
Excerpt: Prolimatech is a young company, already known for the excellent Megahalems, which aims to provide cost-effective solutions for overclockers and "enthusiast". Armageddon is a CPU cooler for Intel socket 1366/1156, which supports two 140mm fans occupying, at the same time, little space inside the chassis. At what cost in terms of performance?
Summary: Add $28 for the two fans we tested it with, and you’re looking at more than $90 for a CPU cooler. Value-for-dollar, you still can’t beat the Cooler Master 212+. But the Armageddon is a powerful and worthy cooler with a satisfyingly solid mounting mechanism, quiet fans (sold separately), and a lot of oomph.
Pros: Powerful and quiet cooling in push/pull with recommended fans; fantastic fan clips; solid mounting bracket.
Summary: The Armageddon from Prolimatech is another stunning air-coolers from the makers of the highly acclaimed Megahalems. The Armageddon is tall and yet thin making it the ideal solution for people that have limited space around their CPU sockets. And because the cooler is thinner does not it is going to cool any less as the height of the cooler make up the surface area needed to cool the most demanding processors.
Excerpt: Nope, it is not the end of the world either. Prolimatech has brought upon a great CPU cooler that breaks away from their traditional CPU cooler design. We all know Prolimatech’s MegaShadow, Megahalems CPU coolers to be one of the best CPU coolers out on the market today. Even I am rather shocked at the performance of their new CPU cooler, the Armageddon.
Summary: When we first look Armageddon we instantly remembered
. We were not so sure about what to expect: it is thinner than its older brother, but taller. And the placement of the heatpipes, side by side (not in-line as with most tower coolers) made us to expect to achieve an excellent performance with this cooler, but honestly we had second thoughts.
Summary: The Prolimatech Armageddon is an interesting product for a number of reasons. For one it is said to be a “slim” heatsink and while we guess it is to a certain degree, there is nothing compact about this high-end cooler. In fact, chances are there will be very few cases where the Armageddon provides better compatibility than the cheaper and slightly better performing Megahalems.
Conclusion: To properly rank the ProlimaTech Armageddon, overclockers must first understand that this was not a product designed to replace their popular Megahalems CPU cooler. The ProlimaTech Armageddon belongs in its own class of heatsinks, along with the growing list of other products that have grown in size to accommodate larger but much quieter cooling fans.
Pros: Utilizes ProlimaTech Intel Mounting System, Six 6mm Separated Heat-Pipe Rods, Very Wide Finsink Radiator, Accepts Two 140mm Cooling Fans, Top-Level Cooling Performance, Includes ProlimaTech PK-1 Carbon-based Premium TIM
Cons: AMD Mounting System Not Included, Limited Manufacturer Support, Does Not Include Cooling Fans
Excerpt: In this review I will be looking at a new product from a relative newcomer to the world of pc cooling yet possibly one of the best known suppliers of enthusiast air coolers, the company is Prolimatech and the cooler of theirs I will be looking at is the Armageddon, coming from a name like Prolimatech I expecting nothing short of VERY good results. Let’s hope I am not disappointed.
Pros: Excellent cooling capabilities., Simple to fit., Amazing build quality., Looks good (in my opinion).
Cons: Not cheap to buy., HUGE. May not fit all cases?, Must buy fans separately.
