If you are bored of the standard 1 kilogram block of shiny silver metal heatsink in your case, Prolimatech has something for you; the Genesis Black. With six heatpipes and the ability to support up to three 140mm fans, the black finish on the aluminium heatsinks and the unique horizontal and vertical design will make your system stand out. On many modern motherboards, that second fin should float above your DIMMs and not only give you enough clearance for DDR3 with heatspreaders but the fan should also increase airflow over those fins. Even better, the test results that Hardware Secrets produced prove this is an effective design as well.
"The Prolimatech Genesis Black Series is a CPU cooler with two heatsinks, one vertical and one horizontal. It supports up to three 120 mm or 140 mm fans. Let's test it."

Prolimatech reportedly has a new fan on the way that is based on the PT12025 fan developed by Prolimatech and Air Propulsion Labratory if photos uncovered by EXPreview hold true. The new PT14015 is a thin 140mm fan that is designed to balance airflow and noise as well as to be compatible with many tower-style heatsinks without blocking the memory slots.
The Prolimatech PT14015 is 15mm thick and has 17 14cm-long blades. Interestingly, it has mounting holes that line up with 120mm fans that should increase the compatibility with existing radiators and processor heatsinks. The curved fins have a sharp leading edge, and the 17 moving blades and increased 140mm form factor should make the PT14015 a fairly quiet fan.
There is no word yet on pricing or availability, but EXPreview has several photos of the new fan. As far as fans go, it looks pretty cool (pun intended).

Popular processor cooler manufacturer Prolimatech has offered its Megahalems cooler for a couple of years now, and it has seen several revisions. The latest modification seems to be purely aesthetic – and I can’t say I’m opposed. Despite my (irrational?) fear of large heatsinks ripping a chunk off of my motherboard, I do find them impressive. A new Megahalems was spotted by Fanless Tech that sports an anodized blue finish that is quite sleek looking.
We don’t have any details beyond the images, but it is reportedly a Megahalems Revision B with a glossy blue finish. The Megahalems Rev. B is of course the company’s answer to Intel’s socket 1156 processors (though it is also compatible with socket(s) 775, 1156, 1366, and 2011). It weighs 790 grams – approximately 1.74 pounds – and measures 158.7mm tall and 74mm wide. It can further support a 120mm fan for active cooling, and it sports six heatpipes. Needless to say, it is rather large and packs quite a bit of air cooling potential. (We reviewed the original Megahalems awhile back, and came away impressed).
I can only speak for myself here, but this is one giant air cooler that I wouldn’t mind risking my motherboard for (what can I say, they used my favorite color ;) ). What do you think of the Prolimatech prototype? Check out more photos over at FanlessTech.
