Super Mega Awesome Features
Since critical details are important, it's worth noting that the ProlimaTech Super Mega heatsink, as with the previously released Megahalems and Mega Shadow CPU coolers, utilize a two-part construction for each fin plate.
Each plate is joined together by inter-locking two 'halves', which use compression on the heat-pipe rod and a thin amount of lead-free solder to secure the fin in place.
Of the 180 fin parts (44 inner and outer pieces per side and two top plate halves), several copper plates are stacked along the outside edges. 32 of the 88 outer fin plates are copper, and combined with nickel plating they increase the weight from 790g on the Megahalems to 945.3 grams on the Super Mega.
Each outer fin plate has been shaped to accept a wire fan frame, so that up to two 120mm or 140mm fans may be attached. While the fins are no wider than a 120mm fan, the attachments will secure larger fans to the heatsink. The Super Mega does not include a cooling fan, however two sets of 120/240 fan wire clips are enclosed with the accessory kit.
In terms of physical heatsink differences, there have been only two: copper fin plates are positioned along the outside, and two polished nickel plates cover the top.
