The big advantage is a particularly attractive price offer, without having to do without cooling performance. All ArgonTowers are made of an aluminum radiator and several copper heatpipes, which are directly attached to the heat spreader of the processor thanks to HDC technology (Heatpipe Direct Contact) and thereby dissipate their heat into the lamella tower.
Also not to be despised and standard with every Silverstone Argon already included: a blue-white fan with 4-pin PWM connector, which is controlled by a compatible motherboard fully automatically, depending on the CPU usage and heat development. Because Silverstone now has some experience in fan construction, as well as an innovative vibration-damping mounting on the Argon cooler, each fan offers a great balance between air circulation and low-noise operation. All coolers of the series are also compatible with any current motherboard socket from AMD or Intel.
The Argon AR02-V2 offered here is a particularly compact tower cooler with three heatpipes with a 6 mm diameter and therefore fits into many smaller housings. Into the base, they transport the waste heat into the 9.2 cm wide and 13.4 cm high radiator block. A seven-bladed 92-mm fan with HYPRO bearings ensures a proper air flow rate of up to 94.6 m³ / h at a full rotational speed of 2,800 rpm and does not exceed 24 dB (A). It can also act very quietly - throttled by pulse width modulation - if it scoops at only 1200 rpm with only 16 dB (A) air.
