Blue and Huge Prolimatech Cooler

It isn't everyday that we see coolers something other than silver, given the materials normally used in their making, but Prolimatech has one of the few models that stray from the norm.

Applying paint to a cooler doesn't usually help with heat conductivity and dissipation, hence why most people avoid it. Prolimatech must have found a really good paint. The product in the photos is called Megahalems Rev. B and, as one can plainly see, has blue-colored fins, even though the material is stainless steel. The color fits the one used on Gigabyte motherboard, though said company seems to be moving away from it. There are just a few fins, at the top, that have a chrome finish. There is a detail that may not be immediately apparent: most of the metal parts of the retention modules are colored black. What is plainly visible, though, is that the cooler is enormous. Those 88 fins make it so large that you'll probably need a case about as deep as it is wide. A lot of weight for six 6mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes.

The rest of the specs are identical to those of the default Megahalems Rev. B, although the price may be somewhat higher than $70 / €57. For those who want a reminder, the item measures 130 x 74 x 158.7 mm, weighs 790 grams, fits LGA 1156, LGA 1366 and LGA 775 CPU sockets (Intel) and has a scratch-resistant top fin, to preserve shine. The heatpipes are aligned in a straight line (for air back draft prevention).  800-1200RPM fans are recommended, or 1600 RPM speeds if owners really want low temperatures more than they want silence. Speaking of which, two sets of fan clips let a couple of spinners be installed at once (Prolimatech doesn't include them in the product package).
