SilverStone Technology has been around for a number of years and has amassed quite a large following thanks to many innovative and exceptional products. With their policy of perfect quality and outstanding design with a desire for customer satisfaction, it's not hard to figure out how they became as popular as they are. With many successful products, such as the Raven, Temjin, and Sugo cases and a solid lineup for CPU coolers, fans, and power supplies, they have managed to stay relevant in a constantly evolving PC market.
In today's review, I will be taking a look at the SilverStone Argon AR11 low-profile CPU cooler. The design is about as compact as you can get at just 47 mm tall. While it may be small, it does pack four Ø6 mm heatpipes and a dense aluminium fin array, which gives this lightweight cooler a TDP rating of 95 watts. Meant for small form factor systems or systems where space is at a premium, it will be quite interesting to see how well it does with the hottest mainstream processor in Intel's current lineup.
