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.

Disappointed 8/22/2018 10:38:00 PM

Pros: I liked the overall construction and mounting approach, a simple direct motherboard mount. .

Cons: Once I carefully checked the instructions diagrams and found the appropriate standoffs for the am3+ versions mounting is simple ; ONLY if you use the original backplate. ! I had to use rubber spacers with. In a nutshell the included plate DOES NOT match the screw threads
Mostly I am not completely satisfied with fan itself the verison shown here on Newwegg is outdated. I received the newer one 2.1 as per Silvstone's website that shows the fan frame being black, not blue, partly the reason I bought this item the blades are white .
One major change to the fan is lowest rpm is a NOISY 1600! Newegg states 1000 rpm and upwards. At a size of 120mm the fan should not start @ 1600 rpm when sitting idle especially with heatsink this size. I will be using an extra COOLERMASTER fan instead with a more respectfull 800 to 2200 speed variance don't think much of silicone mounts. They are PAIN to attach the fan frame.

Overall Review: If I had known this all BEFORE I chose this item, definitely would have chose a HYPER 212. I have that one in another build for several years and no issues.
What's the idea for this horrible OVER pricing of AR01. I paid 45.00$ not 90.00+ ? Have noticed this with other items as well. Barely WORTH 45$ for my own reasons. Depending on one's needs this may item may work for you

Ok here is the skinny on this HSF 7/13/2018 10:29:28 AM

Pros: Awesome cooling, quiet, unique, well made craftsmanship. Proprietary rubber shock absorbing fasteners. Took a few hours chasing the backplate threads. The screw tapping of the threads on supplied screws and back plate are very tight. If you're not careful and skilled they will possibly strip. The manufacturer needs to have better quality control on the screw threads. The back plate does work and the instuctions are no smaller than say a motherboard manual. Magnifying glass! I'm half blind and managed although it took me 2 hours of patient chasing. So the last poster is not totally right. it's tight. The instructions are correct! Almost claimed they had tapped the wrong thread size! Just gotta have experience and skill that's all folks.

Cons: To be expected now days. Might have been bumped around a tad but nothing too terrible. Nothing is perfect. All in all considering shipping and handling. Came in in pretty fine shape. The packaging is awesome. I love it. So no real cons. Good fair reasonable price considering the quality, craftsmanship, material and great engineering. Manufacturer does need to address the quality of the screw threads and instructions. It is hard to understand. Study it with a mag glass, dont get in a hurry. Might have to chase tap the threads. Course I used to do this kind of stuff for a living. It isn't easy but can be done.

Overall Review: it's a work of art. Dropped temps way better than new corsair top of the line 3 fan radiator. Looks really cool no pun intended. Unique very good engineering of course it's a Silverstone! Thank you for the workmanship. The other poster is kinda right. The screws are there if you pay attention though. The instructions need to be followed to the letter! You're welcome. How come I don't get paid for this? Just takes highly coordinated skilled hands. Patience!

Nice device, if it comes with all the parts 3/2/2017 12:19:51 PM

Pros: It fits 2011 sockets without any issues

Cons: Ordered 2 of these, new. Both lacked all of the parts necessary to secure the unit to the board.
Both boxes were missing the screws to hold the plate down to the board.

Overall Review: The instructions are 100% useless. They're so tiny you can't read them, the pictures are blurs and the only saving grace is a video on their website that shows a basic installation on a board.

SilverStone Argon: Lighter Than a Feather, Conjures Spirits and Cooler Than Chill Penguin! 6/16/2016 11:01:39 PM

Pros: This thing is flat out epic. Sitting at 25c idle at 4.3 @1.25 up from 3.4 on FX6300 6-core.

Did you hear a pin drop?! I did and it sounded like an anvil that's how quiet this thing is! Invites the paranormal to your location for a vacation too, just WOW!

This tower cooler is lighter than a feather for it's size and I have used many in my time, it outperforms and weighs infinitely less than offerings from competitors who begin with a T.

Brrrr.... Did I just defeat Chill Penguin as X?! Cool as can be!

Cons: Manual is TOO SMALL. If SS reps see this, I recommend doubling the size of the manual. You will need eagle eyes or a magnifier to see thing!

Overall Review: I will keep using this thing forever, it's that good, honestly rivals WC and I'm not even kidding! I can only imagine what's going to happen when I put another fan on in push/pull config with a 120mm intake above it, blowing out the back, weee! As long as they keep pumping out this unit with updated brackets I can't see a reason to part from such a great unit.

It is MASSIVE 1/17/2015 8:21:16 AM

Pros: -Exceptional cooling,
-great design,
-easy(ish) to install [will explain in cons]
- Fits my FM2 socket AMD A10 Quad Core 5800K.

Brought my idle from 45 C [terrible stock cooler] to 18 C.

Cons: - This thing is MASSIVE. Barely fits in my Mid-ATX Rosewill, few centimeters to spare. Check check, and double check dimensions before purchase.

- Due to the size and weight of the cooler make sure it is tight to the MOBO or you will have some sag off of the CPU.

- Came with an adapter bracket that was supposedly for AMD/INTEL. Didn't even use it, seems to be a waste.

- Instructions are shotty at best, I would suggest watching a couple install videos if you are apprehensive.

-Came with some silver goop that was supposed to be thermal paste, I went ahead and purchased some Arctic Silver for 4.99 and used that instead.

Overall Review: Overall a great cooler without going into the water-cooled realm. Docked 1 egg for shotty instructions and misc. items.

Better then Expected 11/9/2014 6:47:10 AM

Pros: Simple enough to install. Not noisy compared to the rest of my rig. Cools amazingly well. Very light weight.

Cons: Blue/white color scheme is meh, but not offensive.

Overall Review: Lapped 3770k running at 4.2g. I have a lot of airflow in my case and this thing works better then expected as far as cooling performance alone. Installing on the motherboard already in a case was a chore, but not impossible. Comes with 2nd mounts for another fan, running with a spare 120 for lulz. I could have spent triple the price for a AIO liquid cooler and gained nothing. This thing is amazing.
