Stay Cool With SilverStone's Argon Range

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅18.04.2013 13:26:30


The Argon series coolers from SilverStone are designed to provide the best cooling solution for your CPU. The Argon features thick copper heat pipes connect to the base using heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology. A new, compact PWM fan with excellent balance of airflow and noise is included to provide forced-air heat dissipation with the ability to cool components around the CPU area. For users requiring higher performance cooling at reasonable price, Argon series are a great choice.


• Great balance of silence and performance
• Heat-pipes and aluminum fins for excellent heat conducting efficiency
• Heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology
• Patented anti-vibration fan mountings for easy installation and silent operation
• Includes compact PWM fan for excellent cooling and low noise
• Intel Socket LGA775/115X/1366/2011 and AMD Socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 compatible

AR01 is a triple 8mm diameter heatpipe design augmented by a 120mm PWM fan designed to operate between 7 and 12V. Including heatpipes it stands 159mm tall, making it suitable for most ATX and some mATX chassis.

By contrast, whilst still utilising three heapipes, the AR02 incorporates only 6mm diameter heatpipes and a 92mm PWM fan. The resulting design is therefore more suitable for low-power CPUs and system builds with a more constrained budget. With a height of only 134mm it will have fewer case compatibility issues than the AR01 and AR03.

AR03 is the flagship cooler in the Argon range featuring six 6mm-diameter direct contact heatpipes for maximum heat conduction from the CPU heatspreader. A wider array of aluminium fins also increases heat dissipation, which when coupled with its 120mm PWM fan should make for more than adequate cooling on overclocked AMD or Intel systems.
