Prolimatech Genesis CPU Cooler Review – The Super CoolerWed, May 30, 2012 - 12:00 AM
Prolimatech Red Vortex 14 LED Fan
Prolimatech sent along 3 of their Red Vortex 14 LED fans for us to use for testing the Genesis CPU cooler. Prolimatech Red Vortex 14 LED are 140x25x25mm in size and have four Ruby-Red LEDs for some added aesthetics. These fans each cost $14.99 plus $1.99 shipping at Newegg.com. These three fans cost $50.94, which adds a fair amount to the cost of using this CPU cooler. Remember, the Prolimatech Genesis is $74.99 shipped. This means we are $125.93 for this cooler with the three 140mm fans!
