PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



Silenx has incorporated “heatpipe direct touch” into the design, and the resulting coverage area for contact with the CPU heatspreader is quite large. In fact, the area looks like it may be too large for some chips. We'll take a look after testing is complete. The base contact area lacks the highly polished finish we've seen on a few coolers of this design, but it's very flat and uniform.



Inside the accessory box, Silenx has included a full compliment of goodies. The installation guide and single channel fan speed control module is accompanied by a small syringe if thermal compound, followed by mounting parts for the cooler and fan. The cooler will support two 120mm fans and Silenx has provided enough rubber mounts to allow the used to do so. The small zip bag contains the aforementioned AM3 adapter plates and a single backplate is provided that allows all specified sockets to be supported.



The fan label confirms the listed specifications (or vice-versa,) and the 3-wire fantail terminates in a three-pin connector. Given the length of the fantail and the leads on the speed controller, users should have no trouble finding a suitable place in their case for the controller. That about does it for the product tour, let's proceed to the installation and testing phase of the review and see how the Effizio performs.
