Silverstone Heligon Series HE01 CPU Cooler Review
We have featured a few of the coolers made by Silverstone in the past. They have been top-notch when it comes to quality and build. But of the few we have tested, we have not been able to get a hold of one that is supposed to be a top performer regardless of the class. That is about to change with the new Heligon series of air-coolers.
The Heligon series currently consist of just two coolers, HE01 which we are reviewing here to today and the HE02. We all know that in order to be put into the top tier of coolers, it has to have twin towers and the HE01 has that. Also, in order to be classified as a premium cooler it has to include a performance fan and the HE01 has that also. Lastly, in order to be a best-selling cooler, it has to build with quality parts using the best technology and we all know Silverstone has that.
Now that we have lain out what it takes to be a top air-cooler in this business, the next step is putting it all together. We see these characteristics in the new HE01, well on paper anyways. But like everything that comes through the Pro-Clocker lab, we have to put it on the bench to really see if it measures up and in order to see where this cooler stack up against the best ones we have ever tested. So, we will be testing it against the closed loop water-cooling units we have tested just recently.
Silverstone’s take on the HE01
The all new Heligon HE01 CPU cooler is designed for both performance and quietness. The wide aluminum fin spacing are specially designed to minimize noise when air travel through its heatsink. The included 140mm fan offer exceptional cooling power, this low noise fan is also adjustable allowing you to decide the right amount of airflow for your CPU. With the include fan clips, up to three 140mm fans can be installed to enable HE01 to obtain cooling performance that rival the best air coolers on the market.
The Heligon HE01 is capable of safely cooling high-end CPUs such as the Intel Core i7 3960X. It has the ability to cool CPUs up to 300W. For those looking to obtain the highest cooling performance at the lowest noise possible, the SilverStone Heligon HE01 is an unbeatable solution.
