Prolimatech is a bit of the new kid on the block at TechwareLabs. We haven’t reviewed much of their stuff in the past. They have stiff competition from established names in the cooling business, like Thermaltake and Coolermaster. Just because they’re new doesn’t mean they can can’t turn some heads as we see when we look at their Genesis CPU cooler. This cooler is a behemoth, and we put it through its paces when we try it out on our i7 system. Read on to find out the results. First off, this heatsink is huge. Prolimatech essentially combined a tower cooler and low profile cooler into one. It’s nearly an entire kilogram (800 grams to be precise) of aluminum dangling from your CPU socket. Once you attach fans to it, it can easily pass a kilo. So what does this mean to you? Two things really, the first is that without proper support, this much weight dangling from your CPU socket could cause problems. Fortunately the Genesis has a nice solid metal mounting system that holds it in tight and does a decent job of spreading the weight. It’s not as easy to mount as say a Thermaltake Frio, but the directions are clear enough that you shouldn’t have any issues.
