Asus continues to think outside the box – the boxy design of most CPU coolers, that is. Its radical, radial design provides maximum cooling with 128 polished copper ribs arrayed around a 92mm sliding bearing 2,300 RPM fan. Six separate, copper heat pipes distribute heat away from the CPU to be dissipated by the airflow running through the core of the cooler.
Offering support for the Intel Pentium D Dual-Core CPU as well as Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 and Socket 478 processors, the Silent Knight II also fits AMD Athlon 64 X2/FX Dual-Core and AMD Athlon 64 939, 940 and AM2 socket CPUs as well thanks to the included selection of sockets and backplates.
Mounting the cooler is straightforward, and the heatsink sits high above the motherboard to eliminate any conflict with other components. Its 45.6CFM airflow will quickly purge heat from the system. Blue LED highlights accent the smooth copper surfaces of the cooler to add more than a little bling to the interior of your case.
- Superior Heat Dissipation and Cooling PerformanceSix innovatively-designed copper heatpipes and high-density aluminum fins maximize heat transfer and dissipation. Plus a 92mm, 2300RPM sleeve bearing fan delivers an air flow of up to 45.6 CFM for near peerless cooling performance.
- PWM FunctionThe PWM function automatically adjusts fan speeds according to the CPU temperature for efficient cooling and minimized fan noise.
- Universal Socket CompatibilityThe ASUS Silent Knight AL features broad compatibility with AMD socket 754, 939, 940, AM2/AM2+, and socket F (1207)/1207+ platforms, as well as the Intel LGA 775 platform.
