Introduction


SilentiumPC was founded just over a decade ago in Warsaw, Poland, with their first product on the market being the Zephyr fan. Since then, they have moved on from those humble origins to be a winner of Benchmark.pl's Manufacturer of the Year in 2012. With their continued dedication to improving on and expanding their product lines, they now offer fans, CPU coolers, cases, and even power supplies. SilentiumPC has slowly grown due in part to their commitment to quality and performance per dollar. Hopefully, they will soon be able to expand outside of Europe to introduce their price to performance excellence to brand new markets.


Today's review will focus on the SilentiumPC Spartan 3 Pro RGB tower cooler. This compact tower cooler uses a 100 mm Sigma Pro fan that comes with RGB LEDs users can control via their motherboard or included Nano RGB controller. Other than that, it's a simple design that makes use of four heatpipes that directly touch the processor's IHS. Being an entry-level cooler focused on affordability, it will be interesting to see how it compares with more contemporary offerings on the market.
