SilverStone Argon Series AR01 CPU Cooler

PC Perspective has posted a review of the SilverStone Argon Series AR01 CPU cooler today. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation of the AR01 and AR02 here.

At first glance, the cooler does not look like much. It has three heat pipes that form the base and go up both side of the single radiator. However, the devil is in the details in this one. SilverStone uses 8mm diameter heat pipes to maximize the heat absorption and transfer capacity of the system. Additionally, the designed the internal channels of the radiator to increase surface area and redirect the airflow to a non-linear flow to increase the heat dissipation between the aluminum fins and the air medium.
