Today we’re taking a look at SilverStone’s new Tundra Series TD02 liquid cooler. This is their first all-in-one cooling product, and there are some key features that immediately make it stand out from the competition. First, the CPU block is full alloy, with a screw-less copper base and nickel-plated aluminum unibody. The radiator uses a patented design for its cooling fins that is supposed to increase heat transfer efficiency. Of course, being a closed loop system, the TD02 is maintenance free. Motherboard socket support includes Intel Socket LGA775/115X/1366/2011 and AMD Socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2. Let’s take a closer look.
Today we’re taking a look at Corsair’s new case in the Obsidian Series, the 350D. What sets this case apart from the others in the series is its size. The 350D only supports Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, while still having enough interior space for up to two large 240mm radiators. We were interested in an enclosure for a smaller, high performance PC, so we purchased this case at the full retail price of $99.99. Let’s see what you get for under $100.
SilverStone Technology has a very well rounded product catalog including popular categories like computer enclosures, storage devices, power supplies, case fans, CPU coolers and various computer accessories. Today, we’re checking out one of their screen accessories, the Arm Series monitor mount. The model SilverStone sent us is the ARM11SC, which is a single monitor mount (ARM One) constructed from sturdy aluminum alloy and steel. This model comes in both silver and black. We received the silver model for review. Let’s check it out.
The Argon Series of CPU Coolers from SilverStone has something for everyone, with three different sizes and configurations to match any type of build. With support for all of the major socket types, a builder is only limited by the size of the case that the parts are going to be installed in. We recently reviewed the Argon AR02 cooler and gave it our Editor’s Choice Award for ease of install and price-to-performance. While the AR02 didn’t perform great in our overclocking test, we didn’t fault the cooler as that model isn’t really designed for that type of use.
Today we’ll be testing the AR01, which is the middle size cooler in the series at 120mm (W) x 50mm (D) x 159mm (H) (without Fan). This model supports the same CPU sockets as the other two Argon coolers and even uses the same mounting hardware, so swapping the AR02 for the AR01 cooler is going to be a simple process. Let’s check it out.
