Packaging, Bundle & Fan

HE01 arrives in small, nondescript box. Fundamental features can be found on the front whilst on the side the technical specifications are mapped out. SilverStone have opted for an eco-friendly approach to packaging so that it can be recycled.

Within the box all items are contained within their own box and given foam padding to ensure safe arrival during transit.

HE01 caters for a wide range of different socket types from both Intel and AMD. Due to this, there are a variety of different items required between each socket mounting kit. The sockets supported are: Intel Socket LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011 - AMD Socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2. SilverStone include six fan clips for attaching up to three cooling fans to the heatsink, some rubber mounts for fans and an instructions manual detailing the installation procedure for various socket types.

Included with HE01 is a large 140mm PWM cooling fan. The fans model name is SST-FHP141-H and is a 7-blade design. This fan has two different modes which users can switch between to control RPM. Q mode stands for quiet and allows for 500-1200RPM whilst P mode stands for performance and allows for 500-2000RPM. This switch is a handy implementation as it allows on-the-fly modification to fan speed and can be used at specific times when higher RPM is required. Being 38mm thick this cooling fan is designed to sit between both towers of the HE01 heatsink. The connection cable is 3-pin and also has y-cable for powering another fan.
