Abstract: If you consider yourself an overclocker, then you already know everything about the Prometeia brand of phase-change coolers, and we really don't have to say a single word more.

Setup and Assembly

The Prometeia Mach II GT comes assembled, but without the front panel LED display attached. Installing the display is not difficult but you have to remove the front bezel and left side panel first. To take the front off, you must first pull the top of the bezel towards you then slide it upwards. To take off the side panel, remove the four screws and then pull firmly outwards. The side panel is secured with double sided tape as well, so you might have to pull with quite a bit of force - but be careful not to bend the panel in the process.

Once the panels are off, connect the cable to the bottom of the chill control PCB (it only goes in one way) and connect the other side to the LCD.

The LCD screws into place with four screws, and it's pretty secure. When moving the Prometeia though, ECT recommends that you take the LCD off so it doesn't sustain any damage during transportation. There are different screws to accommodate different style case fronts (Enlight or Lian Li), which is why this one part is user installed.

The LCD screen can display a whole slew of information; from processor speed to evaporator temperature and even system load. It connects to the PC via an internal USB cable, so that from within Windows the display can also be customized to show pretty much whatever you'd like with the Control Centre software. We'll take a look at the software in detail a bit later in the review.
