    Default Prolimatech MK-13 VGA Cooler

    Prolimatech has now jumped further into the air cooling market, but this time into new territory: VGA cooling. Looking to build upon the success of their CPU heatsink, they've launched the MK-13, an utter beast of a graphics card cooler that is entirely reminiscent of their Megahalems, sporting a ton of fins, heatpipe technology, and a massive size.

    For any who are thinking of purchasing a VGA cooler like this, I would highly recommend getting a CardKeeper that will fit the card you put this on. When I was using a ThermalRight T-Rad2 (half the weight of this cooler), I noticed that my old 9800GT started warping across the width of the card a little bit. Using a card keeper will help to prevent this, and keep the weight of this cooler from possibly warping your Graphics Card.

    Great review, and another excellent product from Prolimatech! I can not wait to see what their next CPU cooler will look like and how it will perform.

    Has anyone tried this with a Crossfire setup? Most motherboards (at least the Intel X58 ones?) have the PCI Express x16 slots with a distance of 2 slots, which means there isn't enough room for the 4.35 cm this cooler needs. At the very best case, the top cooler will push the 2nd card.

    Any feedback greatly appreciated. I need to get rid of my current cooling solution, so if this one isn't ideal for my crossfire setup, feel free to recommend another cooler. I very much liked the side cooling option, so if another card allows this, even with an expansion card, please do tell

    Many thanks

    Hi Sarezar, if you do go with this cooler for Crossfire then you'll definitely need to go with a side mount, no question. The side mount method shouldn't interfere with any expansion cards in terms of width.

    However, the PCI-E spacing may pose an issue. What motherboard do you have?

    I don't think it's suitable for crossfire setup, if you look closely to the installed pic. It's must thicker than stock cooler, it's take up at least 2 1/2 slots.

    Thank you very much for the answers. I got the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (I posted my spec list, sorry, I should have read the rules first! )

    Is there a another cooler that you would recommend? I'd much rather have the side cooling solution, though I don't know if any other coolers provide the setup. I'm a bit worried that coolers that have the fan "inside" them may be noisy (haven't found a review yet) and difficult to replace the fan. The reason I'm asking all this is because I'm almost certain I wouldn't be able to fit a cooler with a fan on top of it on my MB *edit: which would have been avoided just by swapping the PCI slot with the second PCIeX slot, sigh...

    Many thanks

    I may just replace the radiator in my car with this! That's a sexy piece of metal! I have heard nothing but good about Promlimatech.
