Prolimatech Genesis CPU Cooler Review – The Super CoolerWed, May 30, 2012 - 12:00 AM
Unboxing the Genesis
The ProlimatechGenesis comes in a nice sturdy box with a handy dandy carry handle. The front and back are the same, listing socket compatibility. Even though the Genesis supports LGA2011 the packaging has not been updated to reflect it. Even the LGA1155 update is a sticker on the box.
On the right side of the box is text in several languages to check the website for more information. There is also diagrams showing the fan compatibility, how the air flow goes, and how the Genesis is lighter than most typical tower coolers. I call shenanigans on the weight, yeah the Genesis only weighs 800g, but that is without fans. Slap three 140mm fans at 162g each on there and the Genesis tips the scale at 1,286g or 2.8lbs. That is anything but light.
On the left side of the box are the specifications along with a dimensioned diagram of the Genesis.
Opening the box the accessories box is right up top, and the Genesis is wrapped in plastic and foam.
All the accessories are nicely bagged up for common parts, Intel parts, and AMD parts.
There was one surprise. There was a spring stuck in cooling fins. Looking through all the accessories bags this was not a spring that got loose from the accessories box. So it was there before getting wrapped up. It was easy to removed and the fins did not appear to be damaged in any way.
