Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Which do you prefer, tower coolers or horizontal coolers? Well, Prolimatech Genesis has the best of both worlds, with two independent heatsinks, one vertical and one horizontal, connected by six heatpipes. It supports two 120 mm or 140 mm fans. Let's check it out.

The Genesis box is made of cardboard, in beautiful white and green shades, as illustrated in Figure 1.

Figure 2 shows what comes with the cooler: Manual, thermal grease, and installation hardware. The Genesis doesn't come with fans, so you will need to buy two 120 mm or 140 mm fans. The heatsink also supports a third fan, but you must buy separately the wire clips to hold it, since it comes with only two sets of holders.

Figure 3 displays the Prolimatech Genesis heatsink. It combines the well-known performance of a tower heatsink and the motherboard component (mostly memories) cooling found on horizontal heatsinks.
