The Silverstone's Argon AR01 is a CPU cooler best suited for use with LGA115x processors, which have less surface area than LGA2011 chips. The heatsink measures 159H x 120W x 50D mm and weighs 420g, making it a lightweight when compared to almost every cooler we have seen so far, though its trio of extra thick 8mm copper heatpipes look plenty competent.

The AR01's compact body makes it ideal for MicroATX systems, while its universal design means that it can be used with both AMD and Intel hardware. Better yet, priced at only $35 for a complete HSF assembly, the AR01 is the most affordable cooler in this article.

We were pleased with the install process of the AR01 and the performance is excellent for air cooling. Although we prefer spring clips to prevent over tightening our CPU coolers, the hex nuts did not cause any trouble. Builders just have to be careful...

The Argon AR01 forms part of a new lineup of CPU coolers from SilverStone. An equally cheap 92mm fan based model is also available, as is a heftier and costlier 120mm based one. The £25 price of the AR01 certainly gets it off to a good start, though.In...

The SilverStone AR01 has everything we like on a CPU cooler: it is simple, elegant, quiet, easy to install, and relatively inexpensive. If it had shown an average cooling performance, it would be a good buy anyway. But best of all is that the...

The basic design of the Argon AR01 doesn't translate into basic performance, as thanks to excellent all round build quality (even down to the fan's cable), SilverStone has created a great little cooler that outshines similarly priced and even more...

K záverečnému hodnoteniu len toľko, že sa plne stotožňujeme s tvrdením výrobcu o „maximálnom výkone za rozumnú cenu“. SilverStone AR01 potvrdil, že za cenu približne 33€ s DPH dostanete chladič, ktorý vás síce neohúri špičkovým prevedením alebo...
