SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 280 Review 3

SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 280 Review

A Closer Look »


The packaging is typical for an all-in-one liquid cooler and features a color image of the Navis EVO ARGB 280 front and center. Radiator dimensions are located on the left side while the pump and general specifications are detailed on the back. Interestingly, there was no information on the fan's airflow on the box. However, since SilentiumPC does sell these fans separately that information was available on their website.

Taking a look at the right-hand side, we find the pump's dimensions with reference images and not much else. Moving on to the top, all there is to see is the company logo and website URL. It is not until you look at the bottom that you will find the listed features, such as the Nano RGB controller, motherboard RGB compatibility, etc.


The SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 280 comes in your bog-standard cardboard tray coupled with a thin sheet of foam on top. While not what I like to see, it is more than adequate and does the job.

All modern mainstream and HEDT sockets are supported, including Intel's LGA2011 and LGA2066, alongside AMD's TR4. SilentiumPC, like Deepcool, keeps things simple: the mounting hardware is robust and the ARGB lighting setup is simple by design.
