Prolimatech Shows Off Huge MK-26 Black Series GPU Cooler

Prolimatech has introduced a new GPU heatsink, the Black Series version of its MK-26 cooler. The MK-26 already hit the market in September, but the new one has a matte black finish, with anodized aluminum fins. The copper heatsink pipes are still nickel-plated copper to prevent oxidation.

The MK-26 is designed to can handle GPU's with a TDP of up to 320 Watts. It also supports two 120 mm or 140 mm fans, although these are not included.

Included with the unit are individual heatsinks for the VRM and the memory, along with thermal pads and a syringe of thermal compound. A4-pin PWM fan splitter is included.

The GPU compatibility list has also been updated to indlude the GeForce GTX Titan, which the cooler can easily support since the Titan only has a TDP of 250 W. As such, there is even room for some overclocking.

    Looks awesome. Although, it also looks like it will cause turbulence in case air flow. How do you effectively exhaust hot air from that thing? Side panel fan pulling air out rather than pushing in?

    So, 4-slot cards have become acceptable now?

    It looks like it could hover my PC.

    Side Panel in my case is actually exaust (all except front are exaust)

    It's like a hummer, for those who need to compensate for... something else.

    I wish OEMs would put coolers like this on their select products, even mid-range cards that need to be super-quiet. I'd be happy to pay extra not to have to deal with ordering an aftermarket cooler, then wasting an hour or more on installation and voiding the warranty in the process.

    That said, I prefer Arctic Cooling GPU coolers over anything else, they even have a closed-loop liquid cooler now. Prolimatech MK-13 was a disappointment, and I'd have to see a lot of raving reviews for this before I consider using them again.

    You're saying it's available in BLACK now?!? Sweet mother, my morning wouldn't have been complete without this crucial bit of news.
  • JeBuSBrianSo, 4-slot cards have become acceptable now?Why not? Most standard ATX motherboards have what, 6-8 slots? Vast majority of gamers have 1 or 2 GPUs and very few use PCI slots for anything but GPUs. With that said, why should it be a problem?

    This product is obviously not aimed at people who want to use smaller form factors or SLI/CF.
