All the hype that precedes the Prolimatech Megahalems is spot on in my opinion. What else is there to ask for when looking for your next CPU air cooler? Does it keep the T.E.C.C. cool? Yes it does and it does it well. Is it an attractive addition to your rig? I think so. The Megahalems is going in mine. Is it worth the asking price? Considering I have used the Thor's Hammer and the Baram and sold both in the pursuit of better air cooling. Guess what? I found it.
Issues with the Megahalems are nil. I can't find one fault in all the aspects of its testing. Mounting is super easy; an absolute breeze. Choose a back plate and set it behind the motherboard and add four screws. Set the support bars in place and set four thumbscrews. Lastly, lock in the cross bar and screw in two more thumbscrews to secure the Megahalems in place. Prolimatech suggests when applying TIM to coat both the base of the cooler and the CPU with a thin even layer. In my testing this method did produce the best results. Then just apply your fan of choice with the simple to use, but very secure fan clips. Plug in the fan and enjoy the nice temperatures.
As equipped, the Megahalems from Prolimatech is going to run about $60 plus shipping from CrazyPC.com. I think Prolimatech is onto something big and I can't wait to see what is next. Until that day arrives, you need to seriously consider Prolimatech's Megahalems for your cooling solution. In single fan testing it ranks in the top with the best of what I have tested and there is more potential, depending on fan choice or how many. Either way you look at it, there isn't really a better air cooling solution to squeeze out every last megahertz you can muster.
