SilentiumPC Unveils Fortis 3 EVO ARGB CPU Cooler

SilentiumPC rolled out several variants of its best-selling Fortis 3 tower-type CPU cooler since its 2015 debut, including a design refresh as the Fortis 3 v2, and its RGB variant late last year, which came with older standard RGB. Its latest iteration is the Fortis 3 EVO ARGB. The business end of the cooler, its large tower-type heatsink, is unchanged from the older variants. All that's really changed with the EVO ARGB is the fan.

The included Pulsar HP ARGB 140 mm fan features translucent white plastic making up not just the impeller, but also the frame. This allows bright addressable RGB LEDs embedded in the hub to project light not just through the fan blades, but also the frame. SilentiumPC has also re-tuned the motor to feature a speed range of 200 to 1,400 RPM (compared to 500 to 1,400 RPM on older models of Fortis 3). It also comes with a newer hydraulic bearing that enables a 50,000-hour service life. The fan takes in 4-pin PWM for its primary function, and 3-pin ARGB for the lighting. A "Nano Reset" ARGB LED controller comes included with the cooler, as does a 5 W/mK thermal compound. CPU socket compatibility hasn't changed: LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4. Its price in Europe is 42.90€ (including VAT).

This is actually a very nice unique cooler for mainstream platforms. Asymmetrical design means you never get any RAM clearance issues without sacrificing cooler size, your RAM slots are not covered so it looks much better, and the top of the cooler has this nice plate that you can swap for many different colors or paint it for your own without affecting the cooler itself. It is also cheap. I've used it before I went HEDT.

I don't care much about the nuclear disco fan, but that top cover looks really nice.

How is this a "212 clone"? lol
The fin dimension and heatpipe layout are completely different.
It's like saying every car is a Toyota Camery clone, because most of them have four wheels.
