    Default Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B LGA1156

    Today we are looking closely at the Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B on the LGA1156 socket to see if it can continue its successful ways. More specifically, we'll overclock the snot out of our Core i7 and find out just how far the Rev.B can let us overclock on air cooling. As you'll soon see, we were quite surprised by the results. Follow along and find out why.

    Stable yes, but awfully hot. Wouldn't want to run it 24/7 though

    It`s huge. But Noctua NH D14 is the best. Looks like the king Megahalems is number 2 now based on multiple tests.

    Great review, excellent cooler! 4.4GHz on Air with a core i7 870 is really good. You should try the Elite on the 870, now that you have the right mounting kit.

    Photoshopped.......pfft, bite your tongue! It's my own self-made "studio". Amazing what a good DSLR, some 5600K bulbs, and a white sheet can accomplish

    Bubur......I have the Noctua NH D14 sitting on my desk. Review is coming, not to worry

    by the way, do you have the temperature readings @4.4Ghz?

    and also, It would be nice to get some insight if the Megahalems were to be installed horizontally (and fan air flow directed towards the top of the case) so as not to hit tall memory heatspreaders.
