SilverStone SST-AR06 Low-profile CPU Cooler Review
Dave Alcock / 3 years ago
Introduction and Packaging
SilverStone last year, released a new series of coolers called the Argon series, today were going to take a look at the latest one of these; the SilverStone AR06, a low profile CPU cooler. SilverStone are very well well known for their cases such as the iconic TJ07 and TJ11, both excellent cases for system builders and modders alike. They also have a very successful range of power supplies and some AIO coolers. When you think of SilverStone you generally think of quality, good design, usability and when things do occasionally go wrong, good customer service. I’m really looking forward to this one as I recently struggled to find a low profile cooler that worked well, looked good and was cost effective. Let’s hope their new range stands up to their high expectations.
As you can see from the specification below, the cooler supports a range of sockets for both Intel and AMD. It comes installed with a 92mm blue and white PWM fan.
The front of the box features an image of the cooler and boasts about its low profile 58mm height. It has a quick rundown of the main features of the cooler too, such as its “HDC” technology which we will take a look at in a moment.
Around the back we have the same information about the cooler but in many more languages.
One of the sides of the box, it gives you a full specification list, including fan speed.
The other two sides have some nice promotional photos and again mention the HDC technology.
In the box you’ll find the cooler with the fan already attached, an instruction leaflet, AMD and Intel brackets, 4 long hexagonal screws with corresponding nuts, a set of 4 hex nuts and 4 small screws to connect the bracket to the cooler.
