Navis F240 (ARGB) are the new SilentiumPC liquid coolers

Fresh news – The Poles are following up the Navis liquid coolers with two new models. These are coolers with 240-millimeter radiators that are now cooled by Fluctus fans. That is, the most efficient SilentiumPC has to offer. Unlike the previous generation (Navis Evo, which still doesn’t support Intel’s latest socket), you can install these on LGA 1700 for Alder Lake processors.

SilentiumPC Spartan 5: This much power is often all you need

Buying powerful coolers for CPUs with power draw below 100 W is throwing money out the window. This is proved by the test results of the inexpensive new SilentiumPC cooler – Spartan 5. Considering the price, this cooler is sovereignly the best choice for most AMD Ryzen and Intel Alder Lake processors without an open multiplier. That it will be better to pay more for the Fera 5? Incorrect theory, and even here, less is sometimes more. Read more “SilentiumPC Spartan 5: This much power is often all you need” »

Cheap Spartan 5 (Max) coolers are coming to the market

SilentiumPC timed the new generation of Spartan coolers well, just before the release of the entire line of AMD Ryzen processors with TDP up to 65 W, and you can also use them now to cool similarly low-power Alder Lakes from Intel. And that’s probably with some headroom for lower speeds. The 120-millimeter fan is already used by the base model Spartan 5, which starts at a price of less than 16 EUR, which is less than 400 CZK.

SilentiumPC Fortis 5: Fera’s bigger and quieter brother on steroids

The SilentiumPC Fera 5 concept recently showed us how even a small cooler can be really efficient if the heatsink and fan optimization is done well. Today it’s the turn of the SilentiumPC Fortis 5, which is another iteration of SilentiumPC’s popular cooler, but now optimized in collaboration with Synergy Cooling. What’s more, today’s article is a straight triple test as we’ll be testing all three variants of the Fortis 5 cooler against each other.

SilentiumPC Fluctus 120 PWM: “Miracle” fan from the Fera 5

SilentiumPC presents the Fluctus 120 PWM as its very best fan. But, to beat the whirring Sigma Pro 120 PWM and the obviously sketchy Sigma Pro Corona RGB 120 is relatively simple. The company’s marketing, however, talks about psychoacoustic optimizations. And while there’s no reason to smirk (psychoacoustics is a legitimate scientific field), there were some imperfections that the Poles didn’t avoid.

Big test of 120 mm fans. We known everything about eight of them

To write that we have something mapped out to the last detail is perhaps too bold, but after proper preparation, few pieces of hardware are as easy to evaluate as fans. Of course, this had to be preceded by long preparations, developing a methodology, but you already know the story. What you don’t know yet is the first fruit, or rather the results of Akasa, SilentiumPC, SilverStone, Xigmatek or more exotic Reeven fans. Read more “Big test of 120 mm fans.

Fortis 5 coolers are out, SilentiumPC released them in three ways

After a very long time, the Polish company SilentiumPC is pushing the numbering of the Fortis series coolers as well. These are slightly larger than the successful Fera coolers, but they are still single-tower designs. The new Fortis 5s have a lot in common with the excellent Fera 5, so I guess it finally worked out for SilentiumPC with this line as well. Because in the past Fortis coolers have always fallen short of expectations, and quite significantly. Read more “Fortis 5 coolers are out, SilentiumPC released them in three ways” »

SilentiumPC Fera 5 ARGB – Quiet, efficient and colourful

After a long hiatus, which was caused by a crash of the test setup, I am back again with CPU cooler reviews. Today I will focus on the ARGB version of the Fera 5 cooler from SPC. The Fera 5 cooler performed well beyond expectations in the tests and offered an interesting price to performance ratio. However, the ARGB version is equipped with a slightly different fan, so the cooler needs to be tortured again on a hot CPU and have its noise level measured.

Low price, high thermal conductivity – SPC Pactum PT-4

A new thermal paste has been introduced – Pactum PT-4. Its specifications are admirable, considering the lower price range. The thermal conductivity is more than double that of the previous Pactum PT-2. At least on paper. It could finally be a real competition for the Arctic MX-5. Particularly the application of the PT-4 should be comfortable for its low viscosity. Read more “Low price, high thermal conductivity – SPC Pactum PT-4” »

SilentiumPC Navis Evo ARGB 360 – AIO cooler for everyone

In today’s review, I would like to show you another all-in-one liquid cooler. This time it is the highest AIO model from SilentiumPC – Navis Evo ARGB 360. In terms of price, AIO coolers from the Navis series are very attractive and offer an interesting price-performance ratio. So today, we’re going to check whether the manufacturer did not save costs in the wrong areas and whether this cooler can defend its place in a market full of competitors.

SilentiumPC Fera 5 – The king is dead, long live the king!

Fera 3 from SilentiumPC is certainly one of the most popular coolers. Recently, however, a new version called Fera 5 was launched, which brings a number of new features. The cooler has been redesigned from the ground up, including the fan, and the assembly system has also undergone major changes. In addition, the whole thing has a 6-year warranty. Let’s see, how Fera 5 performs in the tests and whether it is a worthy successor to the previous version. Read more “SilentiumPC Fera 5 – The king is dead, long live the king!” »

SilentiumPC Fera 3 Evo ARGB – Third time’s a charm?

Today’s article concludes a review trilogy of SilentiumPC’s Fera coolers. After the good old Fera 3, we tested the colorful and quieter version – the Fera 3 RGB. And now it’s time for the Fera 3 Evo ARGB. This cooler is just a minor upgrade of the previous model and differs only in the fan used. However, this change can change the cooling efficiency and noise, which we will look at in today’s review. Read more “SilentiumPC Fera 3 Evo ARGB – Third time’s a charm?” »

SPC’s new cooler – Fera 5. Many changes, price as for the old model

The Fera series has the best long-term sales among cheap coolers. And it should be noted that quite deservedly so. However, the Polish manufacturer found weak spots in both the heatsink and the fan and significantly modified the design. That is both great and frightening. But this mostly seems correct and a detailed analysis with the internal tests of the new fan also makes a good impression. The shape of the blades and the bearings were changed.

SilentiumPC Fera 3 RGB – Colorful evolution of a proven classic

The recently tested SilentiumPC Fera 3 cooler did not do badly in our tests, but it was a bit noisy. Today we will look at a cooler from the same family, i.e. SilentiumPC Fera 3 RGB. As the name suggests, this cooler offers RGB backlighting. In addition, the entire heatsink is a few millimeters lower and a different fan is also used. I just hope that these differences will not have a negative effect under stress tests. Read more “SilentiumPC Fera 3 RGB – Colorful evolution of a proven classic” »

SilentiumPC Fera 3 – A new test of an older classics

The SilentiumPC Fera 3 cooler probably doesn’t need to be introduced. This popular cooler is often installed in computer builds, where favorable price-performance ratio is a big deal. It also presents direct competition for the recently tested Freezer 34 from Arctic. In addition, I plan to supplement this pair soon with a test of the recently released 212 Evo V2 cooler from Cooler Master, and I will also add Windale 4 from FSP.
