SilentiumPC Grandis & Fera 2 CPU Cooler Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
When SilentiumPC contacted me asking if I would like to review their products, I had to admit that I’ve never even heard of their brand. Now that’s no bad thing, especially given the brand is based in Poland and have only been around since 2007; a mere blink of an eye compared to some of the industries leading brands. Of course I said yes to their proposal and have been eagerly looking forward to finding out what this brand can do.
SilentiumPC operate on offering the best products they can for gamers on a tighter budget, but as many of you will know, the low-cost end of the market is fiercely competitive with the likes of Cooler Master, SilverStone and Raijintek offering incredible price vs performance products in the lower ranges. So I’m eager to find out where SilentiumPC fit into the equation.
“Being a PC enthusiast or a gamer on a budget is an uneasy task, choosing all those high-end components, loads of RAM and powerful graphics usually leaves you with only a small amount of money to spend on a decent case or power supply. Having such experience ourselves we were confident we can design products that combine ultimate functionality with best value for money and aesthetically pleasing design.”
At my disposal today I have the Zephyr 120mm fan, the FERA 2 HE 1224 and the Grandis XE1236 CPU coolers.
In the box for the Grandis you’ll find all of the standard fittings required, some thermal grease and a pair of nice quality 120mm fans. The Fera 2 components are the same, with the exception of not including a fan splitter, the top bolts being slightly larger and the fan is a different model, but we’ll take a close look at those shortly.
Each cooler came bundled with a full colour photographic installation guide.
