As every good company knows, getting to the top of your chosen market niche is only half the battle; the other half is staying there! Prolimatech earned their reputation off the back of the innovative Megahalems design and have been going strong ever since. In order to retain their lead, numerous heatsinks have been introduced which have spanned nearly every category. In the interim however, competitors have released their own answers to the high end CPU cooling conundrum and have pressured Prolimatech to come up with something in an effort to retain their lead. That something is called the Super Mega.

On paper this new heatsink really doesn’t seem all that different from the Megahalems which was one of the same criticisms which was levelled at the now defunct Mega Shadow as well. But looks can be deceiving and instead of just giving it an all black paint job this beast weighs a heck of a lot more then the original and has a couple more small tricks up its polished copper and aluminum sleeve.

Thankfully, the Super Mega is fairly easy to find at your favourite retailer..if you are a resident of the US of A. Here in Canada it is a bit harder to find.

What is interesting is the price; at $70 it is nearly perfectly aligned with what the Megahalems used to retail for. Now the original Megahalems goes for about $60 so we have to wonder whether the Super Mega’s $10 price premium will translate into a meaningful performance difference. Let’s find out.
