SilentiumPC Spartan 4 Air CPU Cooler Review
Mike Sanders / 3 weeks ago
SilentiumPC is, without a doubt, a brand with a growing reputation for bringing quality products to the market that don’t only satisfy performance needs but that also come with a price tag that shouldn’t offend even the most carefully guarded of wallets. With the recent release of the Spartan 4 CPU air cooler, therefore, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that despite its small stature, this is still looking to provide an effectively remarkable punch!
SilentiumPC Spartan 4
Although not strictly falling into the ‘low-profile’ category of designs, the Spartan 4 is effectively a shrunken-down version of a standard (and often quite bulky) air cooler. Sitting at just 134mm when installed, SilentiumPC hopes that this will provide a fantastic thermal solution for those looking for a better cooling performance than ‘standard’ stock coolers while still offering many of the benefits seen in larger designs. If you are, therefore, currently considering a new M-ITX or compact PC build, this cooler might just be perfect for you!
- Modernized heat sink with 2 heat pipes and their direct contact with the processor surface
- Efficient sigma pro 100 mm fan (800 – 2000 rpm)
- Optimized fan speed curve for silent operation of the entire set
- Only 134 mm tall – fits even relatively narrow chassis
- Mounted by attaching to the motherboard’s backplate
- Does not interfere with ram modules
- Pactum pt-1 1,5g (4,0 w/m*k) thermal paste included

What Does SilentiumPC Have To Say?
“The Spartan 4 has an improved heat sink design and base with heat pipes directly in contact with the processor. This ensures effective cooling of modern 4-and 6-core units while maintaining low noise level and favorable price of the whole set.
The heat sink provides a large surface for heat dissipation. A 100 mm fan is mounted on it, thanks to which the entire cooling system can be quieter.
Receiving thermal energy from the processor is handled by 2 heat pipes, which are in direct contact with the processor surface. Thanks to this, the energy transfer to the aluminum heat sink, equipped with dozens of fins, takes place at a high speed, which significantly reduces temperature spikes caused by the “turbo boost” function of modern CPUs.”
