SilverStone Heligon HE01 Cooler Review
Like so many manufacturers nowadays SilverStone have, over the past few years, been branching out into numerous areas to ensure a strong business. We have seen some great cases from them, such as the FT02 and in their power supply family the Gold certified are also impressive. Elsewhere the DC01 network storage device and DS321 HDD enclosure show just how diverse the brand now is.
The focus of today’s review is one of SilverStones latest coolers. From the Heligon series the HE01 supports all recent CPU sockets and has one of the chunkiest bundled fans we have seen, as well as the option to install two more on the heatsink if we wish.
Packaging and Bundle
SilverStone use a reasonably plain box for their cooler however it does give us a decent amount of product information as well as offering plenty of foam protection inside.
Bundled with the cooler we get installation brackets and items for socket 775, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011 as well as AM2/3/FM1/2. Also included is the manual for AMD/Intel systems, some thermal paste, fan brackets and all the other items we require for our install.
Also included is a 140x140x38mm SilverStone branded fan which is rated for 500-2000RPM. This is a 171CFM model with a 41dBA maximum noise level. On the side of the fan is a small switch that allows us to vary noise/speed depending on our requirements.
