Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler Review

i7 920 Performance Results








As we have seen in the past with other non HDT coolers, the hotter the CPU the more efficient the cooler becomes. While the amount of heat a stock i7 920 produces is significant, and while the numbers the Megahalems post are very good at stock, we really only see the true benefit of this cooler when the heat is up....WAY up. It appears that HDT coolers may continue to be the best air coolers around at lower heat levels BUT the shear mass of this cooler and the shear thermal load it can handle has taken the crown away from the OCZ Vendetta 2. The king is dead, long live the king.
