Prolimatech Armageddon - good bang for a buck - 4. Conclusion

Written by Sanjin Rados
armageddon-front-smallrecommended08_75

[UPDATE]: Tested with two fans at readers' request



Prolimatech Armageddon is an excellent cooling solution that is currently one of the best socket 1366/1156 coolers money can buy. Armageddon’s pricing has dropped significantly since it has been launched, and it’s currently more affordable than many similarly-performing solutions on the market.

We received Armageddon from our friends in Caseking.de, where it’s currently priced at €49.90 (without fans), here, but you can also find interesting deals with one or both fans from €54.90 to €64.90. This is a great offer if you bear in mind that the same cooler cost €59.90 upon launch.

Our test showed that Armageddon really runs like a charm with only one 14cm fan, offering silence and great performance at the same time. The finishing touches are excellent as well and this cooler will definitely stick around in our arsenal.  

It’s really a no brainer – such performance at such a price really deserves to be crowned. So, if you’re looking for a high-end CPU cooler, there’s absolutely no reason why Prolimatech Armageddon shouldn’t be in your top list – in our book, it certainly is.

I hate how these companies name the simplest of mechanisms. Armaclip ? sounds better for armor piercing rounds not a basic thing to attach a fan.

I don't care about the name, but fud, you mentioned it supports up to two fans, couldn't you at least show us what adding the second fan does? How much better does the cooling get vs how much louder with the second fan... Maybe some other site did some more comprehensive tests cause it really does look like a good cooler.

Yeah, the thing with "optional" AMD equipment is a bit lame, but it would be very wise if they remedied that...
