When it comes to the PC hardware Industry, many tend to choose products based on a name they already know. Consumers tend to turn to a company that holds a strong reputation. When we hear the name Silverstone, it doesn't come as surprise that they have built a solid foundation and strong reputation in this arena. Today we have the opportunity to take a look at their new CPU Cooler from the Heligon Series line, the HEO1. While we know Silverstone produces some of the finest production cases, as well as some of the top performing accessories in today's market, the CPU Cooling market is another monster altogether. With the mass variety of options that are available today, the competition can get fierce. Today, we will put the Heligon Series HEO1 cooler to the test and see if Silverstone can uphold their excellent reputation in this market as well.
Over the years we have seen hundreds of air coolers of various models and designs. From the smaller coolers to the larger twin tower coolers, performance is always a key factor when it comes to finding the right product. Today we are going to be looking to a new unique design by Thermalright. It is called the True Spirit 120m. Does it have the right aesthetic appeal and how does it stack up with some of today's coolers in thermal performance? That is what we will attempt to answer in our review today.
Introduction RayStorm is the catchy name for XSPC’s flagship CPU water block. RayStorm has garnered many awards for its outstanding thermal performance, including the PureOC Editor’s Choice Award six months ago. However, the water block has received some criticism from water cooling enthusiasts. Some enthusiasts, for example, questioned the durability of the acrylic hold-down bracket and the non-metal block’s housing. Recognizing that enthusiasts can be tough crowd to please, XSPC has received all the criticism with the open arms and made improvements to an already outstanding water block to address these concerns. Today we have the opportunity to take a close look at the result of XSPC’s improvements – the RayStorm Full Copper water block. “We released our first product the R120 radiator in 2004, the following year we released our X20 CPU waterblock, pump and watercooling kit. Since then we have released many award winning products covering all components of wtercooling systems, most recently our RX360 full cover GPU water blocks. All our products are designed for the PC enthusiast market where they are used by gamers and PC modders. Over the past year our products have been proved very popular with boutique PC manufactures and in specialist areas like recording studio PC’s. We are constantly revising our products to improve performance.”
