This cooler is pricey, but it's something special

Our Verdict

A top-flight, high-performance cooler that does its job beautifully.

For

  • Excellent cooling qualities
  • A solid fixing mechanism
  • 140mm & 120mm fan ready

Against

  • No supplied fan at this price

We're not sure Prolimatech knows what Armageddon actually means, since a high-performance cooler it should actually be doing the opposite of starting Armageddon on our CPU.

Crazy naming aside, you get the feeling the Prolimatech Armageddon means business, it's a hefty 750g of heatsink cooling with six heatpipes and a 160mm high rack of cooling fins, which measure 140mm across.

It doesn't ship with a fan as standard, but will accommodate 140mm or 120mm fans.

Because it's aimed at experienced overclockers and enthusiasts, this shouldn't generally be a problem, but this could be off-putting for more casual users for whom an extra fan just reads as more expense.

It's also an Intel-only cooler and uses an unusual mounting system that's somewhat intimidating at first, but is mechanically highly secure.

Prolimatech has a tight product line and this is effectively its 'entry-level' performance cooler, which is impressive because it shows this is one company that's not messing around.

Megahalems was Prolimatech's first ever CPU heatsink and it quickly became the one to beat and paved the road for all others to follow. Months have passed and competition has once again heated up. One noticible thing is that size has become larger and larger in these heatsinks. This may not be practical as clearance becomes an issue.
With Armageddon, strap on a 14cm fan and let Prolimatech show you that brawn can overcome size. Time to rid of the playing yield. Armageddon!
