From heat pipes to fins to fan, everything here is designed to deliver the best cooling. Heat pipes with HDC technology, widely spaced aluminum fins, and a PWM fan all work side by side to dissipate heat efficiently. Cooling is only part of the story. The SilverStone Argon Series AR01 also operates silently thanks to the fan’s aerodynamic design and anti-vibration rubber mounting.

Heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology
The three 8mm heat pipes with heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology connect directly to your CPU when installed for extremely efficient first-level heat conduction. Transfer more heat from your CPU for maximum computing performance.
Widely spaced aluminum fins
The three 8mm heat pipes pass through aluminum fins in U shape for maximum heat transfer from the heat pipes. The aluminum fins are widely spaced for unobstructed air circulation while the surface is T-shaped for better heat conduction.
Forced-air heat dissipation
The SilverStone Argon Series AR01 comes with a compact 120mm PWM fan for smart cooling. Cool aggressively at full loads and silently at low loads. Aerodynamic design allows for quieter operation.
Anti-vibration rubber mounting
The fan is offed anti-vibration rubber mounting not only for stable rotating but also for silent computing.
Universal compatibility
The SilverStone Argon Series AR01 is compatible with Intel Socket LGA775/115X/1366/2011 and AMD Socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2. Enjoy a system upgrade without the hassle of purchasing an extra CPU cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Cooler

Pros: Comes with quite a bit of hardware to easily mount it to a motherboard. Bigger than it looks in the picture, the included 120mm fan its small compared to this thing lol.

Easy to install, much easier than some of the other types ive tried out over the years. Instructions were mostly clear.

120mm fan can easily be replaced by a faster more efficient one if desired. The rubber mounts were odd at first, but they reduce the noise by quite a bit. You get two sets.

Cons: I wasnt too sure on how tight to make the main screws when finishing up the mount to the CPU. I haven't done this in a while so, I was unfamiliar on how tight to make them. Not sure what to expect temp wise from such a device, with copper and aluminum It wont be as efficient as a solid copper one. I have no issues so far, but i have yet to stress test anything.

Most of my con's are lack of experience.

Other Thoughts: Bigger than it looks, easy to put on and well this is new territory for me. I've never used heat pipe tech w a combo of two metals.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value and performance

Pros: Great value and performance at this price point

Cons: Bundled installation instructions almost useless. Found a youtube video that showed some but not all of the steps.

Other Thoughts: I used this with a A8-5600K to replace the stock AMD cooler. The system would intermittently shutdown, since the day I put it together, and finally traced it to the CPU overheating. Apparently the stock AMD cooler was inadequate from day one. I don't game or overclock, but since this cooler was installed, the highest core temp I have seen is 32 degrees C.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Very quiet, keeps cpu around 80F. No OC. Very nice looking. The rubber attachments (in place of screws) are great.

Cons: Hmm

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan

Pros: I got this after hearing good reviews from some podcast. I was not expect much, other than the price being under $30 (after rebate). Was I pleasantly surprised. It is a well made air cooler. I used to replace an old Cooler Master air cooler, and this is significantly smaller. The most improvement is the fan orientation. In a mid-ATX tower case, it blows air horizontally. which aligns with the rear exhaust. My old CM fan blows vertically, and blocks with the RAM sticks (for exchange).

The vibration absorption rubber anchors that secure the 120mm to the radiator shows engineering attention to detail.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Looking at the spec, it may be not as quiet comparing with the CM fan. But I cannot tell the difference.

It's a keeper.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't install on Asrock Z87

Pros: No pros

Cons: It doesn't install on an Asrock Z87 Killer LGA1150 motherboard because the motherboard has snap-in holes for the cooler and this cooler requires screws. The instruction manual has TINY type and is poorly written. I have to use the cooler that came with the I7 processor. Their website has minimal help. This sure sucks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cooler

Pros: I like that the fan is blue call me biased. It does a good job cooling my FX-6300. Its overclocked to 4.3 @ 1.36v, at full load keeps it under 55c. Installation was simple once you read the instructions carefully. Fan rubber grommets are a plus.

Cons: Fan is loud at high rpm but i suppose most are.

4 out of 5 eggsCPU fan upgrade

Pros: The fan is very quiet. The rubber grommets on it are easily installed and it dissipates heat very efficiently!

Cons: the only thing i can complain about is that it has pretty terrible directions for low knowledge users, and no fan control software.

Other Thoughts: it is quite tall so if you're getting this be mindful of your space also it gets pretty wide so it sits touching the ram.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Cooler

Pros: Building a new machine for my parents. Keeps the A10 APU at 31 degrees Cel.

Cons: No Cons

Other Thoughts: If you are getting this for an FM2/A-Series build, make sure you have at least a mid tower case. There is about a half inch of clearance between the sink and the side panel (for my build). I wasn't paying enough attention that it was 120mm. Also, make sure you mount the fan high enough on the sink so that it does not touch the ram dims.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: So glad I bought this cooler. It does an exceptional job at cooling a non overclocked FX-8320. Fan is inaudible. Prior to this I had only used stock clip on coolers so I thought install would be tricky, but it was a breeze and this sucker is on there secure! Overall I'm just really happy I chose this one.

Cons: None for me.

Other Thoughts: It is kinda big but just check your case dimensions to make sure it fits.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Bang for your Buck

Pros: Cost, PWM fan moves a lot of air, direct contact with pipes

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Installation was very straight forward. There are instructions that specify which holes to use (although I had it easy with an AM3+). It really is whisper quiet at low speeds and cycles down to about 1000 RPM according to HWMonitor. Under load the fan is very audible (I don't mind it at all).

The rubber fan mounts are very cool and feel solid.

I thought I'd try Silverstone after reading several reviews and I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Using the AR01 to cool my first overclock has been a breeze and, though I'm sure the performance doesn't really approach a Noctua heat sink's, I really can't complain at 1/3 the cost.
