Silverstone Heligon HE01

FrostyTech has published a review of the Silverstone Heligon HE01 heatpipe HSF today for those of you interested. You can see our evaluation here for comparison purposes.

The heatsink itself is made from a pretty common mix of nickel plated aluminum fins soldered to six 6mm diameter heatpipes. The six heatpipes converge at a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, eschewing the whole exposed-heatpipe-trend-thing. Noise wise, Heligon HE01 heatsink ranges for loud to whisper quiet. Standing 160mm tall and weighing at 1056grams, the Heligon HE01 is squarely aimed at performance cooling in a full tower case - so keep that in mind.
