SilentiumPC Releases Grandis 3 EVO ARGB Dual Fin-stack CPU Cooler

SilentiumPC today released an update to its Grandis line of dual fin-stack (type-D) CPU coolers, with the new Grandis 3 EVO ARGB. The cooler was last updated in 2016 with the Grandis 2 XE1436. The Grandis 3 sees the fins in both stacks do away with the perforations, increasing surface area, and now feature jagged edges. It also has a revised CPU base design with a slightly thicker mirror-finish nickel-plated copper base. The nickel plating now extends to the six 6 mm copper heat pipes (the Grandis 2 uses exposed copper).

The other, more noticeable design change, is the ventilation. The cooler now includes a pair of Pulsar HP ARGB fans. The "push" fan outside the first fin-stack is 120 mm, while the "pull" fan between the two fin-stacks is 140 mm. Both fans feature hydraulic bearings rated for 50,000 hours. The 120 mm "push" fan spins between 250 to 1,600 RPM, while the 140 mm "pull" fan does 250 to 1,400 RPM. The company didn't put out air-flow or noise output figures. The cooler has a thermal capacity of 250 W TDP, and supports several modern CPU socket types including LGA1151, LGA1200, LGA2066, and AM4. Both fans feature standard 3-pin ARGB connections for the lighting. The fan impellers and frames are made of a translucent white material that acts as diffusers for light from the diodes located in the fan hub. Measuring 159 mm x 140 mm x 131 mm (HxWxD) with its fan installed, the Grandis 3 EVO ARGB weighs 961 g, and is in fact lighter than its predecessor.

Update 14:14 UTC: SilentiumPC announced pricing for the Grandis 3 EVO ARGB to be 55€ (including VAT). The company also announced the 49€ Grandis 3 with non-illuminated fans, which otherwise has identical specs to the Grandis 3 EVO ARGB.

Probably perform the same as a D12 or D15

I'll be impressed when they start making these half the size with no loss of efficiency.

I'm on the fence I've tested their older versions and performance wasn't where it should be so I worked with them to optimise the design but this was a couple years ago now. Thus this version might be solid.

I will see about getting one in but I'm buried in samples already.
