XIGMATEK Dark Knight II vs. Prolimatech Megahalems Black

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This will go into a build using:

Case - Corsair 350D
Mobo - Asus Maximus VI Gene
Ram - Adata XPG V2

Here are the main priorities:

1. Doesnt block ram slots
2. Cooling ability
3. Fan compatibility (hoping to use cougar dual-x white fans when they become available)
4. Other important factors that I haven't thought of...

Which one should I get?

1) Unless you're using absurdly tall vengeance modules both is okay, in fact most heatsinks out there won't block up to a Ripjaws.X
2) Megahalems will eat other single tower heatsinks for lunch ... Much less SD1283
3) Of course they will all fit
4) Nope, there's nothing more. Unless you have absurdly tall VRM heatsinks which is not a given most of the time
