Prolimatech Samuel 17 Review

Packaging & Initial Impressions

Packaging & Initial Impressions

Prolimatech's design team are a classy set of individuals. The 2010 revision of the Samuel 17 is well decorated and utilises a robust outer packaging. Inside you will find the cooler placed upside down and a secondary box concealing the multiple socket mounts for both Intel and AMD.

Let's take a closer look at the cooler itself. Before I continue I must stress how small this cooler really is. These close up shots, along with it's six heatpipes might fool you into thinking it's a much larger cooler. Here, David stands at a laughable height of 41mm.

To the left and right of the cooler, there are two metal strips that allow you to fit a 120mm fan of your choice. Do remember that this cooler isn't designed for passive operation and as such, you will have to purchase a fan to complement it.

Samuel 17's heatsink base is flat and scratch free. Assuming the processor's heatspreader is sufficiently flat, this will offer excellent surface contact.
