ProlimaTech, famous for their Intel only Megahalems heatsink has introduced a new Intel cooler called Armageddon.  It is 144x60x160mm (5.6×2.3×6.3″), 750g and can have a pair of 140mm fans in a push-pull configuration and like the Megahalems is Intel only.  The testing Benchmark Reviews put this cooler through revealed that it was not as powerful as a top of the line cooler but the cooling that it provided was nearly silent.  That places this cooler into the subsection of heatsinks that provide decent cooling but are more aimed towards system builds that emphasize quiet performance.  You can also catch a great picture of the proper amount of thermal paste to apply in the review.

“The aftermarket heatsink industry is very competitive, and manufacturers often release several product designs before finally scoring a win with enthusiasts and overclockers. The Megahalems was ProlimaTech’s first run at CPU-cooler’s, and a very sucessful one at that. Earning our Editor’s Choice Award and countless accolades from other websites, ProlimaTech has built high expectations with their follow-up products. The ProlimaTech Armageddon is one such cooling solution with a legacy to fill, and with six heatpipes and enough finsink area for two 140mm fans it seems a reasonable possability. Benchmark Reviews recently tested the ProlimaTech Armageddon heatsink in our Best CPU Cooler Performance series, on an overclocked Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition processor against several other top CPU coolers. ”
