SilentiumPC Grandis 2 XE1436 Review

A Closer Look »


SilentiumPC uses a relatively small box considering the size of the cooler. It measures in at roughly 16.5 cm in length, 14.7 cm in width, and 26.6 cm in height including the lip. On the front is a close-up of the 120 mm fan as an image of the heatsink wraps around the box. The SilentiumPC logo and product name are also visible here. Moving to the left side, you will find the cooler's specifications. On the back is a mention of its various features, such as the Sigma Pro fans and Pactum PT-2 thermal compound, among others.

On the right is the same image from the front as it wraps around the box. Meanwhile, the top again shows the company logo along with the phrase "Quality, Support, Price, Professionals."


Opening the box, users will notice that the cooler is located under the mounting hardware with the 120 mm fan in a separate Sigma Pro branded box. The heatsink and 140 mm fan are sealed in a plastic clamshell package.

Everything you need and nothing you don't—SilentiumPC keeps things simple in terms of what is provided with the only extra being a third set of fan clips for those wanting to utilize triple fans. Even so, there is a lot of included hardware to keep track of.
