SilverStone AR02 CPU Cooler

Hardware Secrets has the SilverStone AR02 CPU cooler on the test bench today. If you are shopping for a new heatpipe HSF, check out this review.

We tested the cooler with a Core i5-2500K CPU (quad-core, 3.3 GHz), which is a socket LGA1155 processor with a 95 W TDP (Thermal Design Power). In order to get higher thermal dissipation, we overclocked it to 4.0 GHz (100 MHz base clock and x40 multiplier), with 1.3 V core voltage (Vcore).
