Frugal overclockers looking for even cheaper CPU coolers might want to consider Prolimatech's upcoming lineup - the Megahalems Basic series. First is the Megahalems Basic-81, retailing for $32. It manages to look physically identical to the more expensive $70 Megahalems, but to keep costs low stainless steel fins are used instead of aluminum. The 81 fins remain intact, along with copper for the heatpipes and the base, which also happens to be mirror-finished. Further expanding the cost-effective CPU lineup is the compact Basic-45. At $14, it has 45 aluminum fins and four 6mm copper heat pipes and base. Given the rock-bottom price, it's a given the cooler ships without a fan.
