In early September, Intel has finally released the long-anticipated Socket 1156. In following pursuit, Prolimatech released the bigger and better version of the Megahalems. Now it comes with extra set of fan clips for even better cooling results. It also includes the new all-in-one backplate for an easy, convenient installation on Intel Socket 775, 1156, and 1366. Also added to the upgrade package is the new material for the top fin on this "Mega" heatsink. This particular fin is made of all stainless steel. Its main features incorporate a greater resistance to accidental scratches and oxidation. For regular maintenance, all you have to do is lightly polish it with a soft cloth so you’ll always have that new out-of-the-box shiny looks; great for showing off at LAN parties and to your friends!

  • newegg Always Shine Top fin is made of scratch-resistant stainless steel to preserve shine. No matter how long it works, it looks brand new.
  • newegg All for Supreme Cooling Six Ø 6mm heatpipes are lined up in a straight line to prevent air back draft allowing air to easily pass through the heatsink body. Minimal air resistance between fins allows best balance between noise and performance. Wide gaps between fins with mathematically calculated thickness to maximize best air-to-surface cooling rate. Plus, included easy-to-apply high grade thermal compound is a good sidekick to this heatsink. Two sets of fan clips fan clips allow for a duo-fan installation for upgraded cooling. (For all out performance, fan RPM at 1600 or above is recommended.)
  • newegg Broad Compatibility Megahalems Revision C features easy-to-install retention mechanism for LGA 775, 1366, 1155, and 1156 and AM2/AM2+/AM3. The only difference between Rev B. and Rev C. is that the AMD hold down hardware is included in the Rev C.

Awesome on my 6600k 11/24/2015 5:24:18 PM

Pros: High quality, excellent cooling performance, great looks, versatile mounting options, includes everything you need except for fans

Cons: Doesn't come with any fans

Overall Review: Running a single 60 cfm fan this cools my 6600k at 4.7 ghz at 65C or less max load temperatures with linpack load. Simply amazing performance. Temperatures go up to about 75C with 5 ghz @ 1.475v. Performance is top of the line as far as air cooling goes not much better on the market.

solid, easy to mount 7/20/2015 4:28:59 PM

Pros: very easy mount, enhanced cooling vs the hyper 212 it replaced. use two of them, replaced a hyper 212 in both cases. only thing better is water cooling, but i find this more reliable (pump failures are bad m'kay)

Cons: large, but we knew that... unable to get a hold of the black variant

Overall Review: when installing might want to wear gloves ... the fins are sharp.... again though super easy to install even in crapped cases

Amazing Single Tower Cooler 6/27/2015 6:10:30 PM

Pros: Works great, was very easy to install on my AM3+ motherboard, comes with all the hardware for most sockets, 120mm and 140mm fan clips and thermal paste. It drop my temps considerably even when compared to my AIO liquid cooler.

Cons: Instructions are not very clear for installation, but I figured out how to do it without them.

Overall Review: It will not clear large RAM heatsinks, it wasn't tall enough to clear my Corsair Vengeance heatsinks.

A little disapointing 5/5/2014 5:58:47 AM

Pros: Heavy which means decent thermal mass. Nickle plated copper and aluminum makes for a visually appealing product. The fins are not razor sharp like most CPU coolers. Fan brackets are included for 80,120 and 140mm fans. Socket 2011 installation is straight forward and the brackets feel very solid.

Cons: I've not run across this problem before on any CPU cooler, but the base plate is domed but approximately 1/32". The only contact surface with the CPU will be in the direct center of the CPU. A little polishing enlarged the contact surface to about the same size of an Intel CPU die, but you are out of luck with an elongated AMD die.

Overall Review: I ordered a pair of these for a socket 2011 Xeon build as they fit the space requirements well, but the domed bottom has me unsure as to the cooling characteristics.

Excellent passive cooler. 12/24/2013 1:59:51 PM

Pros: Great cooling. Low noise. Assuming decent case ventilation this cooler doesn't need a dedicated fan.

Cons: Not free.

Overall Review: This is the second one of these I've bought. The first has been happily (passively) cooling a 130 watt Xeon 24/7 for over 4 years. Current configuration (Xeon E3-1220v3) maintains core temps around 30-40C under normal load, without a dedicated fan. Temp stabilizes around 65-67C under 100% load. This is just a great product.

Works for me 12/23/2013 4:47:51 PM

Pros: I had the Rev B on my i5, when I purchased a new i7 I ordered off Newegg without thinking. I have Akasa piranha in push pull configuration, the cpu hasn't pushed passed 63c under full load prime 95 for me. It is big, and I really didn't look at the other cpu coolers out there, but my rev B was reliable and kept things cool, so hoping it will be the same story with the Rev C

Cons: none

MEH -gahalmes 12/4/2013 9:57:15 PM

Pros: This thing is huge. Not a lot of options for coolers this size.

Cons: 1. It rattles. I may have a defect. But, if you google "Megahalmes Rattle" you can find a good youtube demo. So much for a silent solution. It adds a little jangle whenever my HDD kicks on.

2. Fans mount with wire clips. I would much prefer the rubber gaskets used by other mfgs. The wire clips are design for specific fan sizes and not, for example, prolimatech's own vortex series. I ended up strapping it on using some 14 AWG copper wiring I had lying around.

3. The symmetrical design makes it harder to avoid RAM, etc.

Overall Review: Overall I'm disappointed. I got this for a silent HTPC build. I'm not really interested in overclocking or ultra efficient cooling. If you don't want to bend you own wire clips, get a standard depth fan. Fits fine in the Fractal R4 case. On the Asus Z87-pro, with the thin Vortex fan, I can use 3 out of the 4 RAM slots without problem. The 4th might be tight, didn't check for sure.
