A few weeks ago we took a look at SilverStone's AR01 CPU cooler from their new Argon series of coolers. We were thoroughly impressed with its price, sound levels and overall performance. The Argon series is comprised of three coolers - the AR01, AR02 and the AR03. Each looks similar at first glance but is geared towards a different end user. The AR02 is the low man on the totem pole in the lineup (as far as size is concerned) but don't think that makes him not worthwhile. SilverStone kindly sent us the AR02 to check out, so let's get to it!
SilverStone is a respected name in the component industry, and we've seen some behemoth power supplies from the company in the past. Although this one isn't a monster premium power supply like some we've seen of late, the Strider Gold 650W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $125. Seems good so far, so let's take a closer look at this SilverStone power supply and see how it fares.
Introduction SilverStone is a company that’s been around for 10 years, yet they haven’t quite developed a high level of brand recognition amongst consumers. Still, for those who know them, they sometimes make stand out products. One of their most famous products is the Air Penetrator fan. Silverstone also makes a wide variety of cases, CPU coolers, fans and even power supplies. They recently released their Argon series of CPU coolers which feature the AR01, AR02 and AR03, each having distinct blue-framed fans in a variety of sizes and heat pipe configurations. SilverStone was kind enough to send us their AR01 cooler to test out so let’s check it out!

Hello fellow Pure Overclock readers! Today we have something a little special on the table. If you have previously been reading our CPU Cooler reviews you probably saw our recent review for Silverstone. We reviewed the Silverstone Heligon Series - HEO1 CPU Cooler, but after publication of the review, Silverstone noticed some discrepencies, and shared their concerns of the temperatures we had recorded. While we explained to Silverstone our process to make sure temps are recorded accurately, they wondered if they had possibly sent us a defective cooler. What Silverstone did next was beyond our expectations. They sent us a second cooler for re-testing to see if we gathered the same results or better. As you will soon see, it turns out their concerns were valid. Before we jump into things, we would like to thank Tony at Silverstone for sending us a second cooler for re-testing of the Heligon Series - HEO1.
