Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The first chart you see is what Prolimatech provides on their website. It covers the Intel only mounting compatibility, along with the coolers dimensions, weight, and heat pipe diameter and amount. The second chart is from the original Armageddon, but since the coolers are identical other than coloration, there is more information to be had with this chart. It again cover the dimensions of this cooler that stands on 160.3mm tall, and they again address the 750 gram weight of it, without fans placed on the cooler.
They also address the six heat pipes that are all 6mm in diameter. Since the cooler does not ship with fans, what you are given is the suggested specifications. Prolimatech says that a fan that runs 800 to 1000 RPM will suffice, and they only need to deliver 57CFM of air flow. Noise levels are only relevant to the user, so that specification doesn't really count, but they do advise that this cooler should run with the fans facing the rear exhaust of the chassis. Unlike the original design, the Blue Series Armageddon includes mounting for LGA775 processors as well.
What neither chart covers is the physical makeup of the Armageddon design. There is a copper, two piece, base component that has six copper heat pipes soldered into it. The pipes leave the base and make bends and twisted shapes to go from an east-west orientation out of the base to a north-south orientation as they run through two separated sections of fins. The base and pipes are then Nickel plated before they slide 44 aluminum fins that have been mostly painted black, but six of them in each tower come painted blue. On top of that there is a full width top plate that holds 12 pipe ends as they protrude out the top of the individual fin sections. This serves as a way to solidify the towers, as well as giving Prolimatech a place for two blue stripes, and 12 black caps to cover the ends of the fins to set on.
We were also sent a pair of the Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 fans. These 140mm fans are designed for silence with an 18dBA rating and they are only 15mm thick. The RPM rating fits the mold, with a rated speed of 500 to 1000 RPMs. These fans also come rated to push 98CFM, which is way over spec, and they are shown to deliver 0.9mmH2O of static pressure. These fans are also 91 grams each, and as we are testing this cooler, it is now 932 grams in total weight.
Since the press release for this cooler's arrival was just presented at the beginning of last month, there is very little on the internet in the way of an actual listing for this cooler. While the original version of the Armageddon can be had pretty much anywhere for $59.99, I do like what I was able to track down as far as pricing is concerned. While I cannot find any listings inside of the US or from anywhere that will ship to the US, there is a pre-order listing at Caseking.de currently listing the Armageddon Blue Series version at 59.90. It is more likely that inside of the US this cooler will list more near the converted pricing of $81.00 rather than doing a straight Euro to Dollar conversion. Considering you also have to add in the cost of a fan or two, pricing could get expensive really fast.
