Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 5 Rev. 2 Review

Performance »


As always when installing a VGA Silencer, installation is very easy and takes only a few minutes.

The second revision is using thermal pads to improve contact with the memory chips. Contact is excellent now, Revision 1 had a few problems with it. It is easy to get the thermal pads off when removing the cooler.

The fan connector cable is a bit long, but it is possible to hide the excess cable under the cooling fan.

Some motherboards, like the DFI LanParty NF4, place the chipset fan right under the video card. Arctic's big fan casing is reducing the air flow on some of these boards. On the LanParty it helps if you move the video card to the second PCI-E x16 slot.
