SilverStone Roundup July 2014 – featuring GD09 Case, ST60F PSU and AR02 Cooler

The AR02 Cooler

The AR02 arrives in a fairly compact box which shares the same styling as the rest of the AR range. Inside we find all of the usual items which are manual, brackets/screws, thermal paste, fan mounts and a 9.2cm fan (16-24dBA, 56CFM, 2800RPM, hypro bearing) as this is a compact cooler.

The cooler measures 92x50x134mm meaning it JUST fits in the GD09 case and our heatsink fins are aluminium. Running through them are three 6mm copper heatpipes and they make direct contact with our CPU. Speaking of CPUs the AR02 supports models on Intel 775/1150/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD AM2/3 as well as FM1/2.

Installation is simply a case of installing the backplate (except on 2011) and then screwing it in place before attaching the retention brackets and bolting our cooler down. As we have noted in previous reviews the rubber fan mounts used by Silverstone are great. Very quick and easy to use. You can see them installed on the next page.
