Taiwanese company SilverStone, well known for its high-quality cases and power supply units is also known for its powerful computer cooling solutions. SilverStone has just launched a new super cooler able to dispose of 300 watts of heat.
The new addition is a processor
cooler in the popular tower configuration. The company is touting the ability of cooling any processor with a TDP of up to 300W.
This is an extraordinary claim from SilverStone, but it seems quite achievable, as the huge 1,100 grams (2.42 pounds) heatsink
is cooled by a very capable 140mm fan.
The fan used by SilverStone for their HE01 super cooler is not like your average 140mm fan. Usually, such fans have a height of 25 millimeters, but SilverStone’s HE01 cooler uses a bigger, 38mm-tall fan.
The six heroes of the HE01 cooling solution are the 6mm heatpipes. We have no idea why SilverStone didn’t use 8 millimeters, as larger heatpipes offer much better cooling
The HE01 has nickel plating for its heatpipes and the cooler base.
The cooler has an atypical placement of the cooling
One half of the cooler has fins with a larger surface area and the other half has fins with a smaller heat dissipating area, but both sides will have the same number of heatpipes passing through.
The fan speed can vary anywhere in the 500 to 2,000 RPM range, with the corresponding noise level situated between 18 and 41 decibels.
SilverStone’s HE01 super tower cooler is compatible with Intel Socket LGA775, 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011 mainboards and AMD Socket AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2 motherboards.
