Features & Specifications

Following the huge success of Megahalems comes the super edition, the SUPER MEGA!!It's a hybrid of copper and aluminium for an unmatched level of performance while still keeping it under one kilogram. We have also included an option to install extra pounds of pressure for an even tighter contact between the heatsink base and the CPU.

Just when you think air cooling has reached its bottleneck, Prolimatech goes and pulls another one out of the hat.
The Mega Trio: First the Megahalems, then the Mega Shadow and now the Super Mega!


•Copper and Aluminium Hybrid for best heat collection and dissipation ratio
•Copper fins strategically positioned for better heat dissipation
•Top fin made of scratch resistant stainless steel to preserve shine
•Minimal air resistance between fins allowing best balance between noise and performance for fans in the range of 800-1200RPM. For all out performance, fan RPM at 1600 or above is recommended
•Vertically adjustable 120/140mm universal fan clips redesigned for better installation compatibility
•The black screws are included to provide extra pressure for better contact with CPU and heatsink.

The Super Mega looks be a very versatile cooler, considering it supports both 120 and 140mm fans which not many other coolers can claim. This makes it ideal for a high performance but silent operation as it was designed to be. The size of the heatsink is slightly larger than the Thermalright Venomous X. It is 3mm longer, 11mm wider but 1.3mm shorter than the latter. The wider dimension may have implications when it comes to memory compatibility. Compared to the Venomous X, the Super Mega uses a similar 6 heat pipe design for efficient heat dissipation. The fins have been designed in such a way as to reduce air resistance meaning that low RPM fans are very well suited to the cooler and high static pressure is not absolutely necessary but nonetheless still welcomed. Unfortunately, the Super Mega only supports Intel CPUs, which traditionally run hotter. The copper and aluminium hybrid is unique to the cooler and the claims that the copper ones are strategically placed seem dubious but our results will no doubt reveal the truth.
