PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES




This is a large cooler. At 4.9 x 4.1 x 6.1 inches it should fit into most chassis' without issue, but one should always check to make sure before making a purchase. The copper base, large 8mm heatpipes and aluminum fins combine for a weight of a shade over 24 ounces, or 1.5 pounds. The included 120mm fan has fluid dynamic bearings and can be adjusted from around 900 to 1700 RPM via the included fan speed controller for minimal audible noise. This cooler also supports a wide variety of mobo sockets, but I can find no mention of 1366 support in the included literature on the Silenx website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



Silenx makes a lot of bold claims about high cooling performance and low noise levels and proclaims right on the front of the box that this cooler is designed for gamers and overclockers. We'll see.



The cooler has a silvery finish over most of its exposed surfaces, but the heatpipes show a little of their native copper color. The fan has a sort of hammered bronze finish that's quite attractive, but I'm not sure that the two finishes look good together, not that it makes that much difference.



Also included are the Intel 775 mounting bracket and pins, the installation guide, two sets of fan mounting clips and the fan speed controller, cable and mounting tape. We'll go over all this during the installation phase of this review.
