Prolimatech Super Mega Review


Testing and Setup:

Testing of the heatsink will involve loading simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios. Both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage after one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed on the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 25 °C throughout testing of the Super Mega, as well as the comparison heatsinks. All the data shown in the graphs is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Prolimatech will be used during testing, and thermal pastes as packaged from the other coolers were used with each heatsink respectively. Since the Super Mega is not packaged with any fans, I will be using two generic 120mm fans that operate at 1700RPM.

Testing Setup:

Comparison Heatsinks:






As far as my expectations went with the Prolimatech Super Mega, the results definitely met them. It slightly bettered Cooler Master's latest sensation, the V6GT, in the stock scenarios, and managed to pull ahead by seven full degrees in the loaded overclocked scenario. This shows where the Super Mega shines, and certainly impresses me - surely impressing many others as well. I will wrap up my conclusions on the next page.
