You may know the Taiwanese-based cooling manufacturer Prolimatech for it’s top-notch Megahalems, Megashadow and Armageddon coolers. If you haven’t heard of them, chances are you’ve been living under a rock for quite some time.

Anyways, a few minutes ago the Prolimatech dudes officially announced their newest cooler, named Samuel 17 on their Facebook page:

As you can probably see, this time we’re talking about a low-profile cooler, which will most likely interest HTPC users. It’s base has got six nickel-plated copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the processor, and convey heat to a dense aluminum fin array that propagates along the plane of the motherboard.

Supported sockets are intel’s 775/1366/1156 and AMD’s AM2/AM2+/AM3. Let’s hope this time the AMD brackets are shipped with the cooler, rather than being sold in highly limited quantities…

25mm and 12mm thick 120mm fans are supported, but I’m guessing that with some cable ties you can get any fan you’d like.

Samuel 17 is expected to be on the market in June. MSRP is rumored to be around 40€, which is equal to ’bout $50.
