Prolimatech over the years has made a name for itself with coolers like the Genesis, Samuel 17 and of course the Megahalems. Primarily cooling is what they are known for, even memory cooling, its own thermal compound, various accessories including magnetic fan mounts, and as it applies to this review, they do tend to video card cooling as well. Up to now the sole entry to this category was the MK-13 from Prolimatech, that I personally never got a chance to review, but going back now I can see where this latest offering got its name and styling.
While just looking at the MK-13 I can imagine the cooler performed very well, and after skimming a couple of reviews, I see that others were doing very well with them. As with any cooler that Prolimatech delivers, there are no fans shipped along with it. This makes for much wider results in testing, but it gives each user the ability to choose a fan or fans that suit their specific requirements. That being said, the MK-13 was and is more than capable of handling most GPU's. Rather than revise the MK-13 to fit newer video cards, Prolimatech took the idea back to the concept drawings and looked for ways to seriously improve the cooler while adding support for the latest video cards.
That plan of action leads us to where we are today with the introduction of the MK-26 from Prolimatech. The name almost makes one assume that since the number has doubled, maybe so has the performance or the size of the cooler. The answer to both of those ponderings is not quite doubled, but they have both been increased a bunch. The MK-26 as you will see soon enough does keep the basic styling, but with the new design comes advantages to the maximum thermal capabilities, the types of fans you can install, and the ability to take up some of that room afforded in the larger cases on the market, and the MK-26 is the largest GPU cooler I have ever used.
That being said I think I have your interest peeked, stick around and see just how well the MK-26 from Prolimatech does with cooling my HIS Radeon HD 7950.
