From the heat pipes to the fins to the fan, everything here is designed to deliver the best cooling. Thick heat pipes with HDC technology, widely spaced aluminum fins and a PWM fan work side by side to dissipate heat efficiently. However, cooling is only part of the story. The SilverStone Argon Series AR02 also operates silently thanks to the fan’s anti-vibration rubber mounting. Argon series AR01 and AR03 are also available.

Heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology
The three thick 6mm 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 6mm heat pipes pass through aluminum fins in a 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 AR02 comes with a compact 92mm PWM fan for smart cooling. Cool aggressively at full loads and silently at low loads.
Anti-vibration rubber mounting
The fan's anti-vibration rubber mounting comes built not only for stable rotating but also for silent computing.
Universal compatibility
The SilverStone Argon Series AR02 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.

Awesome product, but was way cheaper when I bought it. 9/6/2016 6:36:45 PM

Pros: - Been working great with my FX-8320 since 2013.
- Quiet, rubber fan mounts remove any possible rattling.
- Installation was easy.

Cons: - I paid $24.99 for it, regular price, in June 2013. I see today in Sept 2016 it's $42.99. For that price you may as well buy a beefer design from another brand...

Overall Review: The packaging and over all quality of this product is truly exceptional.

Great budget cooler 11/27/2015 7:11:59 PM

Pros: Allows me to overclock (overclocking achieved via Turbo Boost) an FX 8350.

Cons: Allows an FX 8350 to just barely Turbo Boost/run with overclocked Turbo Boost. I would not trust this to keep ANY AMD cool under 100% Turbo Boosted load for more than a few hours... Probably not a good idea to use this on an AMD video processing rig.

Overall Review: This is a cheap air cooler. There is enough heat dispensation and enough air flow via the fan. For serious AMD fanatics that want to overclock their FX to the limit, I'd go with water cooling. If you are using AMD and looking for an upgrade to the stock cooling and looking to achieve maxed out Turbo Boost, then this is for you. 5 egg score because it serves its purpose of keeping the FX cool and quiet.

AR02 9/27/2015 7:08:46 AM

Pros: Keeps my CPU 20-30 degrees C cooler than the stock Intel cooler, quiet for HTPC use, a perfect fit for my SilverStone GD09 case, doesn't block any RAM slots

Cons: I had to take apart my HTPC to install it, though I knew that ahead of time.

Overall Review: I built my HTPC in August of 2014 with a SilverStone GD09 case and an i5-4690K (overclocked to 4.1 GHz at 1.15 volts). I figured for HTPC use the stock Intel cooler would be fine, but the whole point of the 4690K was to have enough processing power to do on-the-fly blu-ray transcodes to a Roku or tablets with Emby or Plex at some point. With the stock CPU cooler it would have run too hot so I got this AR02. It dropped my idle temperature from 50C to 33C and even under stress tests it never goes beyond 70C (whereas with the stock cooler it would quickly ramp up to 100C and throttle). Most of the time I'm in the 30's now.

Some of the other low profile coolers I looked at would cover up the inboard RAM slots on my Asus Z97 mATX board, of few of which would have forced me to give up dual channel RAM. With the AR02 I can use all 4 RAM slots if I wish and not have to worry about RAM height. I set mine up in a pull configuration with the fan sending air out to the back of the case.

I'm very happy with this cooler and definitely recommend it if you don't have room for a larger one. Just don't go crazy with your overclock.
