Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $34.95 from Performance-PCs.com
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Great price to performance ratio, super quiet operation, PWM-enabled fan, great deal of clearance to the first PCI slot.
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Blue fan frame may not suit all builds, lack of RAM clearance on our particular test setup.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
If you're looking for a budget cooler that can hang with the big guys and don't mind the blue fan frame then be sure to keep the SilverStone AR01 on the top of your list.

Features and Specifications

“The Argon series coolers are designed to provide the best cooling solution for your CPU. The Argon AR01 features three 8mm thick copper heat pipes connect to the base using heat-pipe direct contact (HDC) technology. A new, compact 120mm PWM fan with excellent balance of airflow and noise is included to provide forced-air heat dissipation with the ability to cool components around the CPU area. For users requiring higher performance cooling at reasonable price, AR01 is a great choice.” – SilverStone
