I have just updated this post as i forgot to show the previous message from them and some additional photos, it may make more sense now!
I got a response back from prolimatech today:-
According to our engineers, they mentioned that the fulcrum (the red circle of the attached mk-26.jpg picture) is on the left side; therefore, the right side (yellow part) will have the bent problem when you mount heavy fan on the right side.
The weight of MK-26 is similar to standard stock cooler (maybe heavier, but not big difference), you could weight your stock cooler to check about it.
We would suggest you to use light fans, such as our Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 fan.http://www.prolimatech.com/en/products/ ... 08#showtab
We use two USV 14 fans on MK-26 on our computers and didn't have serious bent problem.
Best regards,Dear Mat,
We made some tests of USV 14 fan pk other brand 14025 fans internally. Please see the attached pictures of our internal test for your information.
You'll find out that USV 14 fan beats Noctua NF-P14 from the test. After you have the USV 14 fans, please also test them with your other 14025 fans.
You'll be surprised of USV 14 fan's performance. If possible, could you please also share with us of your testing afterwards?
We would love to know about it. =)
Here's the link of one of our UK resellers:

Please contact them for Prolimatech USV 14 fans. We've been arranging a batch of USV 14 fans to Europe already. I think they should have the USV 14 fans in stock soon.
BTW, you'll also need the USV 14 fan clips to mount the USV 14 fan on Megahalems and MK-26. Please see the attached flyer of USV 14 fan series clip.
Thank you for supporting Prolimatech.
I thought this was a fob off to be honest but then started looking into weights of fans, the noctuas weigh 330 grams each so that is 660g. the prolimatech thin fans weigh 90g each so thats 660grams vs 180 grams. It could make a lot of difference?
The only thing i would say about the prolimatech fans are the CFM figures at 1000RPM are quite high, especially at the volume they advise but i think im willing to give a go and see. I will try and upload the 8 photos they sent me as a rar file as they are quite interesting!
