Default Prolimatech Armageddon CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread

After releasing their now infamous Megahalems heatsink, Prolimatech followed up with the Mega Shadow which was basically a Megahalems finished in a stunning black anodized finish.

Can Prolimatech capitalize on the lessons learned after the success of their first product?

the ArmaClips only allow certain 140mm fans to be installed which will only adds to the frustration of actually finding a perfect match for your brand new cooler.

The fact <> it has two of these fingers


Even with two 140mm fans attached there really is going to be very few potential issues

Great one again Sky! For the cooler, only 140MM capable is not that nice IMO. There is way more 120MM fanfor look and performance compare to 140Mm IMO. But maybe this is a new Era, we will see soon

Will it be compared with comparable cases (ie: Beta EVO, Antec 200/300 etc...)

Why do manufacturers leave out AMD? It just seems like they are giving that share of the market to their competitors.
