In all my time with TweakTown, I have only seen three coolers from this manufacturer of higher-end cooling solutions. Jumping in the way back machine, we first had a look at the Megahalems, which was very revolutionary in its day. The solid construction, and allowing the customer to match a fan or fans to it, was something that not many companies had thought of doing, but at Prolimatech, it was made a standard for them.
The other thing that put this cooler on the map was it was one of the first coolers I saw that delivered a serious mounting solution that took all of the guess work out of mounting some of the antiquated designs we had to work with at that time. With a solidly designed tower cooler, and this revolution in mounting, Prolimatech was onto something, and customers took notice.
We then got a hold of the Samuel 17, built for HTPC or low power applications. Again with solid construction and enough designing and trial and error, they delivered what is still one of the better low-profile CPU cooling solutions, specifically in those instances where room inside of the chassis just isn't there for much other than the stock cooling solutions. Then not too long after that we took a look at the MK-26, where Prolimatech took all of its CPU cooler design and know-how, and delivered that knowledge into a GPU cooling solution. The sad thing about all of this is the fact that it has been almost a year to date since the MK-26, and it has been two years plus since we saw anything new in CPU cooling from them.
The good thing is that their hiatus has ended, and they have found us once again to look at something new in its field of CPU coolers. Of course years ago there was the original concept of the Armageddon cooler from them. Since then they have developed a "Special Edition" line of CPU coolers where they have taken the likes of the Megahalems, Genesis, and now the Armageddon, and offered them in various colored solutions.
This is what brings us here today as we get up close and personal with the latest addition to that series of coolers with the Armageddon Blue Series CPU cooler from Prolimatech.
