Prolimatech Megahalems Rev C Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅16-08-13

Prolimatech are firm advocates for strong aesthetics and whilst the Megahalems remains quite simple from a styling aspect, it has some extremely nice touches which will look superb in any computer system.

Right from the packaging through to the finished product, the Megahalems has all the boxes ticked. We found the mounting system for LGA 2011 to be one of the best we have used; not only is it easy to install the cooler, but the method for getting it attached is robust and reliable with support for numerous sockets from both Intel and AMD parties.

Whilst we aren’t keen on the idea of having to supply our own cooling fan(s) with Megahalems it does have support for both 120mm and 140mm options so there is plenty of variation. The only thing we would add, if you are planning to do some heavy overclocking then anything up to 1500RPM probably won’t cut it, aim for something higher.

Priced around the £42-45 mark the Megahalems is quite a pricey investment when you bear in mind extra expenditure will come by having to add in those cooling fans, pushing the cost up another £20/30… unless however you have them already lying around in storage.

Megahalems Rev. C is a good looking CPU cooler which responds well to stock and overclocked processors. Its easy to install and has one of the best mounting systems we have had the pleasure of using.
