Prolimatech Armageddon CPU Cooler Review
Laid out in front of the Prolimatech Armageddon are the contents of the accessory pack.
You have the:
- metal backplate for LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 platforms,
- adjustable mounting brackets,
- two sets of fan clips, and
- a tube of in-house thermal paste
The parts are universal; you will be using the same stuff for installation on any platform.
The metal backplate, rivet nuts and rubber O-rings (which also double up as stoppers to prevent the rivet nuts from falling off) go under the motherboard.
The lengthened studs, adjustable brackets (for installation on different platforms) and screw nuts go on top.
The last mounting bracket sits snug on the base of the heatsink with the aid of two indentations, and is held down with two spring-loaded screws.
Pictured below is the Prolimatech Armageddon heatsink standing on its side; notice how slim it is.
According to Prolimatech, lead-free solder is used for all contact points.
The aluminium plates have grooves on them; possibly designed in such a way for better airflow.
There are a total of six 6mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes running through the heatsink’s base.
Another look at the heatpipe arrangement; the pipes are twisted and bent in a pretty acrobatic manner in order to get them to form a straight row.
Like its heatpipes, the Armageddon’s copper base is also nickel-plated. The non-polished base is smooth, although there are visible machining marks.
