Prolimatech Samuel 17 Review
Published: 13th July 2010 | Source: Prolimatech | Price: 39.90EUR |
Thousands of years ago in an angry world with no technology and limited infrastructure, stood two mighty men; David and Goliath. Despite the unfair advantage that mighty Goliath possessed, he was defeated with a single blow to the head, leaving David victorious. Today we will be taking a long hard look at a Processor cooler that is touted as David's second coming. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Prolimatech Samuel 17.
Indeed if you put two and two together, you'll realise that the cooler on test today is infact a smaller than average heatsink, when compared to many of today's offerings. I suppose if one were to take a Samuel 17 to a person's head, it could induce a significant amount of damage but that would be missing the point.
In a nutshell, Prolimatech reckon that they can squeeze a serious amount of cooling performance out of a small package. To really understand what they've done, let's take a look at it's specifications.
