Prolimatech Genesis All-in-one high end CPU cooler tested - 2. The Package

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Long live the King

Although Genesis’ packaging is large as a PSU one, we though the simplicity and color scheme were quite refreshing. Let’s hope Genesis “refreshes” our components as well.

As you can see from the picture, the box holds components for mounting the cooler on AMD’s and all popular Intel’s sockets. Specs say that Genesis measures 146mm x 216.5mm x 160mm.

Nice review, and the first one I could find. The design is pretty innovative, a fresh breath of air to the usual twin tower coolers. I have two questions though. 1. How does this fare against the Noctua NH-D14? 2. If you mount the fan to push air down to the RAM, would it get your RAM hotter since you're blowing the heat from the CPU onto the RAM?

Very innovative design and good review, thanks guys. One thing I would add for consideration; my guess is that if you mounted the fan parallel to the motherboard in reverse, you would improve airflow. It seems to me that if you were sucking the air up off of the RAM instead of pushing the already heated air down onto the DIMMS, that air would then be drawn through the perpendicular fan through the second part of the heat-sink and out the exhaust fan on the back of the chasse. I think this would follow the natural airflow of the case more appropriately and prevent any hot air "dead" spaces in between the memory modules. Just my two cents of course.

I like the design a lot too, just the price, 60$ without fans is not nice. Hope more affordable models come with this kind of design soon.

Great review! Do you think you can do a quick noise test comparison please? Would love to see how loud it is.

Why not get a h50. It's cheaper, less noise, wont blow CPU heat on to the RAM, wont interfere with ram Coolers or motherboard coolers.

Nice review. But I too will probably stick with my H50 push/pull set up. Keeps my CPU nice and cool so far, and its dang quiet even with the two higher end fans I'm using on it now.

it looks stupid.

Quoting The blue fox:
Why not get a h50. It's cheaper, less noise, wont blow CPU heat on to the RAM, wont interfere with ram Coolers or motherboard coolers.

The H50 won't get near as good temps as the best air-coolers. It's not cheaper: costs about the same in Caseking. Noise is decided by fans, and the H70 for example is loud as hell. Being able to clear Corsair Dominators is already pretty good for a huge cooler.

Design looks just like a the Coolermaster V10 just without a shroud one set of fins and TEC.
