Megahalems Revision C

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
For as famous as it's predecessor was, I've heard relatively little about this heatsink.

I'm interested in the black one in particular: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835242031

My main question is, will the black one perform worse than the regular version?

I don't have room for a twin tower heatsink, so I'm looking for the best performing single tower available.

So does the black coating on the Megahalems Black interfere with it's performance? I can't find any benchmarks for the black one specifically.

Nope it doesn't, Xigmatek Dark Knight also has black coating and it performs great.

Color of cooler doesn't make enough difference for you to ever tell the difference.

Phanteks PH-TC12DX comes in black too. All 3 are within a few degrees of each other.

Thanks for the input. I'll give the Megahalems Black a go.

I would prefer non painted Megahalems, because is less modified, never someting painted will perform the same unless the paint layer is very thin

It does perform the same though....thumb.gif
