Prolimatech Armageddon 6-Heatpipe CPU Cooler ReviewFri, May 21, 2010 - 12:00 AM
Let’s take a look at the packaging for the Prolimatech Armageddon. If I know anything about heatsinks it is the frustration I feel when I unbox a heatsink to only find the fins all bent awry. Keep reading to see how Prolimatech prevents this scenario.
The outer box covering the Armageddon has a great feel to it in addition to the entertaining “100% Brawn” icon in the top right corner. Just like the Prolimatech Megashadow, the Armageddon has an abstract design on the box art. I can’t help but think if Transformers though and considering the names of the heatsinks I feel this may have been an inspiration. The tagline “Without sacrificing space” accurately describes how the Armageddon fits into the Prolimatech lineup.
Not only is the heatsink slender but the box itself is packed up quite tight. You can see roughly one inch thick foam inserts that secure the heatsink within the box. Towards the top of the image is the box of accessories including the mounting mechanism.
Unless Fedex or UPS kicks the box your Armageddon should show up in perfect condition as you can see above.
The entire heatsink was sealed in a thin plastic bag which kept the heatsink free of fingerprints for about thirty seconds. You can also see a slip of plastic stuck to the base to prevent any grazes from marring the base.
The accessory pack is well.. a package of accessories. Moving on.
The accessories contain everything you would need to mount the Armageddon to an LGA1156 or LGA1366 motherboard. Prolimatech includes fan clips to mount two 120mm or 140mm fans to the Armageddon. Lastly there is a tube of Prolimatech’s own thermal grease.
