Where do we start with the Prolimatech Genesis? For a start, it’s not your everyday single or dual tower cooler. The Genesis is very unique in its design; it is composed of two radiators, one upright and the other designed as a down-draft heatsink to cool memory modules, MOSFETs and the motherboard Northbridge. This makes the Genesis a very versatile cooler and a promising one at that as it combines the sheer cooling potential of a regular heatsink and the motherboard cooling capability of down-draft coolers such as the Noctua NH-C14. There is a risk that Prolimatech have compromised on the design such that its efficiency is effectively reduced by implementing two concepts into one cooler. On initial looks the upright radiator appears very narrow and realistically we expect larger towers with higher surface areas to be the best performers. But as we all know, initial impressions don’t tell the whole story and with Prolimatech’s history of delivering high quality cooling solutions, we expect the Genesis design to revolutionise the future air cooling market.
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
