In the Old Testament of 1 Samuel, Chapter 17 tells a story of an ordinary man named David whom nobody believed in. That did not matter to him because David had something to put his trust and faith in. From that he would get his strength to battle the nine-foot-tall giant, Goliath. In the end, against all odds, David did prove that size does not matter when he defeated Goliath.

Prolimatech Samuel 17 has the essence of David. It is compact in size but don’t let that fool you as it packs a deadly arsenal in a never ending battle against heat. When equipped with a 120mm fan, Samuel 17 will not only cool your CPU efficiently but also the PC components around it, keeping your computer running smooth and stable.

5 out of 5 eggsStable Passive Cooler!

Pros: Low profile stable passive cooler for lower temp CPUs

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Originally bought this cooler to be used in my media center with a fan attached. After installing it I didn't have enough room to mount even a slim 120mm fan and still close my case. To my surprise leaving the system on over a long weekend with the AC off in Texas the system never hit over 48*C running a CPU intensive benchmark. This was done on a i3 3220

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler, tight fit.

Pros: Great cooling capacity. Looks great. Skips the usual loud stock fan. Great price for a high performing low profile cooler.

Cons: The fitment can be a bit tough depending on socket type, memory slot placement and other motherboard component placement around the CPU socket area.

Other Thoughts: Fitted to a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI in a InWin BP-Series LW-BP671.300BL mITX case. The cooler can only be oriented in one way due to the close proximity of the memory slots. This wasn't an issue but clearance is very tight. I needed to cut down the SATA power connector to the ODD so the edge of the cooler to have enough room for the ODD to be installed. Paired this with a Corsair SP 120 fan for amazing cooling. Keeps the power delivery circuitry and other chipsets cool with the down-draft.

5 out of 5 eggsgo-to cooler

Pros: -Blows air onto motherboard and cools memory
-Wide variety of fan options

Cons: -Can't mount 38mm wide fans, only 25 and 15mm.

Other Thoughts: My go-to cooler. I've used these Prolimatech Samuel 17s with various mATX and ITX boards (all Intel) and never had an issue with clearance. This cooler uses four bolts with nylon spacers to mount, so no need to worry about blackplates that can interfere with stuff on the back of the board. I install by positioning the mounting holes one at a time over the edge of a desk to easily slide each bolt in from underneath without the cooler sliding around on the paste. There's even enough room underneath to fit G.Skill Ripjaws. With a 113CFM fan a Pentium 3430 under full load runs ~45C while an i5 4670 runs ~58C with estimated ambient temperatures about 18C.

5 out of 5 eggsSamuel 17 Cooler Review

Pros: Excellent cooler for my Z77IA-E53 board with a 3750k processor in an ML05 case. It brought my non-overclocked idle temperature down to around 25-30* C and stress test not over 65*C using a generic 120mm fan at its lowest speed of 700rpm. Great cooler if you need something low profile and quiet.

Cons: Pricey and out of stock frequently. You get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsNice low profile cooler

Pros: Very low profile, performs well with AMD APU for htpc or small form factor setup.

Cons: Does not come with a fan, a bit pricey not to have a fan included, but I knew that before purchase so no egg deduction...

Other Thoughts: Add a Prolimatech PRO-USV14 140MM ultra sleek vortex fan (15mm thick and quiet) and you have a very low profile and effective cooler that far out performs the stock coolers.

5 out of 5 eggsNice performance

Pros: Dropped my temps by 10-12c in a very small/tight SFF case with not so good airflow. only about 5-7mm of clearance below power supply and wires blocking a lot. Had to pair it with a gellid slim 120mm fan to fit in my coolermaster elite 120

Cons: Expensive- but its quality and works if you need it in a very tight space verticaly

5 out of 5 eggsBuilding a low profile machine? Just get it.

Pros: Low profile; compatible with many motherboards; great for Mini-ITX; very efficient, effective cooler.

Cons: Incompatible with a few motherboards (check before you buy).

While it might be the best low-profile heat sink you can get, it's still a low-profile heat sink. Don't expect miracles; build sensibly.

Other Thoughts: I have this heat sink paired with a Scythe SY1212SL12H-P fan in a Lian Li PC-Q12 case, where it keeps an i7-3770S at a consistent 27°C, even under load. This is by far the coolest, quietest machine I've ever put together (well, not counting some fanless Atom builds).

Based on this experience, I'd be comfortable using this cooler on a 95W CPU. (But with the i7-3770S available, who needs a 95W CPU?)

3 out of 5 eggsMight work

Pros: Looks like a nice cooler

Cons: Will not fit a ASRock FM2A85X-ITX due to the RAM location. I purchased RAM without high heat spreader to make sure that there wouldn't be a fitment issue. I was wrong. Installed one way the heat sink overhangs the memory and hits them. Install the other the heat pipes hit the side of the memory.

Other Thoughts: I will keep it and use it for a future build. A bit disappointed that it didn't fit as the stock AMD coolers are not very good.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent low profile cooler

Pros: Great cooler for small form factor setups. I'm using it with an Asus P8H77-I mini-ITX board, Intel Core-i7 2600K, and a Lian Li PCQ-18 case. It was the only cooler I could find to fit my board without hitting any components and work within the confines on the case. Very good CPU temps!

Cons: Overall setup was straightforward but fastening the screws was a bit of a juggling act.

Other Thoughts: Choose your DRAM carefully. DRAM sticks with tall heatsinks may be a problem.

5 out of 5 eggstruly the best itx case cooler.

Pros: It fits in many itx cases.
it works with many itx boards.
it really keeps cpus cool. comes with all mounting parts and nice thermal paste

I have 3 of them as they really work well and are a pleasure to mount.

Cons: it is costly. it sells out all the time.

Other Thoughts: This is a true case of you get what you pay for. yeah for a heatsink with out a fan I want to pay 2x or 3x not 5x.

but it fits and works and is easy to mount. that is very worth while
