I suppose if you know about Prolimatech, it would be because of the critically acclaimed Megahalems CPU heatsink. But who could blame you as it was a cooler that took many by surprise, especially when it came from a manufacturer that very few knew. Prolimatech may also have toyed with small form factor coolers but we are pleased to say that the brand have returned to the competitive market of tower based coolers.
So is the Armageddon a Megahalems replacement? Well not quite, as the specifications speak for themselves.

The first thing you will have noticed is that the Armageddon is a slimmer cooler. While its proportions permits the installation of 140mm fans, the cooler is just 50mm deep. This of course means it has significantly less surface area than its bigger brother. When you consider this and the fact that a fan of ~800-1200RPM range has been suggested, it is clear that the Armageddon seems to be less of an all out "performance" cooler than a silent cooler.
Let's take a closer look.
