SilverStone Revives Tundra with TD02 and TD03

SilverStone gave its Tundra line of liquid-cooling products a new lease of life with two new closed-loop CPU coolers, the TD02 and TD03 (pictured in that order). The two feature design and fans by SilverStone. The TD02 features a radiator assembly that measures 278 x 124 x 33.5 mm (LxWxH, excluding fans), and can latch on to four 120 mm fans. The TD03, on the other hand, uses a radiator assembly close to half the size of its sibling, measuring 124 x 159 x 45 mm. The base+pump assembly is the same for both, measuring 55 x 60 x 33.5 mm, which features a polished copper base. The two will reach stores later this week.

SilverStone Intros FP56 Front-Panel

SilverStone introduced the multi-utility FP56 front-panel. Built for 5.25-inch drive bays, the panel gives you room for two 2.5-inch drives, a multi-format card reader, three USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, and a high-current USB 3.0 port for quickly charging your gadgets. The FP56 draws power from a standard 4-pin Molex plug, and connectivity from a standard USB 3.0 front-panel header. The card reader supports various generations and form-factors of SD, MemoryStick, xD, and CompactFlash cards. Its rear portion has mount-holes for two 2.5-inch drives stacked alongside each other. To blend with your case, you can use any of the black, white, and silver bezels included. SilverStone didn't announce pricing or availability.

SilverStone Raven RV04 Chassis Detailed

Here are some of the first pictures of SilverStone's upcoming flagship chassis, the Raven RV04. Its styling is clearly evolutionary to the Raven RV03, with no chrome highlights, and a more curvy, "concave" front. The biggest change is on the inside, while the RV03 features a 90° clockwise-tilted motherboard tray, the RV04 uses an upside-down BTX-esque motherboard tray. Perhaps the new trend of detachable drive-bays to make room for long graphics cards caught up with SilverStone. The case supports ATX, E-ATX, and SSI-CEB motherboard form-factors.

The Raven RV04 features two 5.25-inch drive bays, seven internal 3.5-inch ones, of which two feature back-planes to enable hot-swapping; and four 2.5-inch bays. It features room for CPU coolers as tall as 165 mm, PSUs as long as 180 mm, and add-on cards as long as 337 mm, and as tall as 170 mm. Its front-panel includes two USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and audio jacks. Ventilation includes two gargantuan 180 mm front intake fans (up to 1200 RPM, up to 34 dBA), and a 120 mm rear fan. Measuring 219mm (W) x 581mm (H) x 497mm (D), the RV04 weighs about 11 kg. It's largely made of SECC steel and ABS plastic. It's available in two variants, one with the opaque side-panel (SST-RV04B), and one with an acrylic window (SST-RV04B-W). Pricing and availability will be announced on May 11.

SilverStone Sugo SG10 Packs Enough Room for a Serious Gaming Kick

Responding to the market's newfound love for gaming-grade micro-ATX cases, SilverStone rolled out the Sugo SG10. Don't be fooled by its looks - a HTPC-esque front panel, with a slot-in slimline optical drive bay, this case packs a punch. Its SECC steel frame can hold on to a micro-ATX motherboard, a double-slot graphics card that's 33.7 cm long (a GTX 680 should fit just fine), a forward-located PSU bay (a large 1200W PSU should fit), CPU coolers over 160 mm tall, and a combination of 180 mm top and 120 mm rear exhausts, and a 120 mm front intake.

SilverStone Mammoth MMO1 EATX Case Detailed, Too

SilverStone also exhibited a strange new case that supports longer EATX motherboard (useful for dual-socket workstation boards), but not XL-ATX (up to 10 add-on cards). Pictured below, the Silverstone Mammoth MMO1 is wider and longer than most ATX full-towers, and features two large 180 mm front intake fans that draw air through an air-filter. It forms part of the lower-front panel. The upper portion reveals a couple of 5.25-inch bays, and front-panel ports, such as USB 3.0 and HD audio.

SilverStone Also Shows Off Asymmetric Dual-Tower SST-NT08 CPU Cooler

SilverStone also displayed its own take on asymmetric dual-tower heatsinks, with the SST-NT08 (not to be confused with another heatsink of the same model, first unveiled at Computex 2008). While most other asymmetric dual-tower heatsinks have variations in aluminum fin count or positions of the fin towers, the NT08 has two completely dissimilar fin towers. The thicker fin tower is close to double the thickness of the slimmer one, although the heatsink still has U-shaped heat pipes that pass through both fin towers, with the base in between. The NT08 uses six 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes, and deploys a 120 mm fan between the two fin stacks to ventilate it. The fan pulls air through the slimmer tower, and pushes it through the thicker one.

SilverStone Displays Unique SST-NT01 Pro CPU Cooler

The next in our series on "aluminum oddities" is SilverStone's SST-NT01 Pro, an unconventional aluminum fin heatsink. The design idea is similar in a way, to that of the Antec Kuhler Flow. The aluminum fin stack doesn't propagate directly above the base, but besides it. While the Kuhler Flow has a square fin stack, the NT01 Pro has a rectangular one, with its longer side along the plane of the motherboard, rather than perpendicular to it. As many as six 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes transport heat from the base to the fin stack, which is then ventilated by two 80 mm fans.
