Prolimatech MK-13 GPU Cooler provides more than enough cooling power

Jamming a ton of heatpipes and cooling fins on to a CPU heatsink is an easy way to get plenty of cooling potential, unfortunately graphics cards are somewhat constrained by how much space the cooler can take up…if you want to add more expansion cards that is.

The Prolimatech MK-13 GPU Cooler somehow manages to fit in 6 heatpipes and a massive number of cooling fins to keep your graphics card’s temperatures down. PureOC has the review:

The Prolimatech MK-13 features several heatpipes, six in total, that transfer the massive amount of heat that most GPUs produce. Unlike the heatpipe direct touch technology we often see on GPU coolers where they actually touch the chip, the heatpipes here emanate from the base and then run between about 150 dissipation fins (twice I lost count and didn’t want to have a third try at it).

Yes it cools about as well as you’d imagine but you’ll have to supply your own fans if you’re planning on running one.
