For those who are fluent in the Bible, I'm sure the passages of Samuel 17 are well known. For those less apt to attend church, or maybe not as fluent in the big book, it refers to the story of David versus Goliath. In this story Goliath, a giant of his day comes and asks for anyone to come forward and attempt to defeat him. Now, imagine Goliath as the biggest man you have ever seen and he is covered from head to toe with a helmet and chainmail armor, not to mention one of the heaviest swords in existence. As the story progresses, David, with his guidance from the All Mighty, steps up to the challenge with just a sling and a few round stones he had just picked up from a creek bed. Goliath of course laughs at the contender, but in the end, one solidly placed blow from a stone ends up putting Goliath out for the count and face down in the dirt.
Now, David in that story was guided by God to "help" him in his defeat. Now I mean no disrespect to those who pray, but I'm hoping I don't have to be a believer to make this cooler work as advertised. This is the smallest cooler in height I have ever tested, even shorter than the 45mm stock Intel cooler, out of the box. In relative size it should, or could rather, be cooled with an 80 or 92mm fan, but that isn't the case in Prolimatech's latest submission.
Today we will take the Prolimatech Samuel 17 CPU cooler out into the valley and put it up against our Goliath, the T.E.C.C, test box, and see who wins this time around. I will also be using a lower noise producing, 60 CFM fan, as this cooler is designed for HTPC builds and we don't want a ton of noise coming from those. I will also use an 88 CFM fan that in my opinion is loud, but might be acceptable in a SFF LAN build. Let's get a good spot to view the battle and see who comes out victorious in today's world of fierce combat.
