Prolimatech Samuel 17 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Today we are testing the Prolimatech Samuel 17, a low profile CPU cooler with six heatpipes and room for a 120 mm fan. Let's check it out!

The name of this cooler refers to the chapter of the Bible that tells the story of David and Goliath, alluding that this small cooler can be more powerful than a big one. In our tests, we will see if this idea holds true.

The Samuel 17 box is very small and simple, as you can check in Figure 1.

In Figure 2, you can see the box contents: the cooler (that doesn't come with a fan), manual, installation hardware, and a tube of thermal compound.
