SilentiumPC was founded back in 2007 in Warsaw, Poland, with their first product on the market being their Zephyr fan. Since then, they have moved on from such humble origins to end up winning Benchmark.pl's Manufacturer of the Year award in 2012. With their continued dedication to improving on and expanding their product lines, which include fans, CPU coolers, cases, and even power supplies, SilentiumPC has slowly grown with their commitment to quality and performance per dollar leading the way. It feels like it is only a matter of time before they expand outside of Europe.
In today's review, I will cover the SilentiumPC Fera 3 RGB HE1224 tower cooler. Much like its predecessor, the Fera 2, this design is comprised of a simple single-tower heatsink that receives heat via four heat pipes and has been equipped with a single 120 mm RGB fan. However, it differs from the previous design in some fundamental ways. It features an offset design for better memory compatibility along with a new heat-pipe arrangement for optimized heat transfer. While the specifications remain similar, the new model has been tweaked to a significant degree. It will be interesting to see how it holds up against other entry-level offerings as SilentiumPC's Fera 3 RGB HE1224 is the most affordable RGB-equipped heatsink I have encountered at just €36.90, which is about $34.00.
