SilverStone Heligon HE02
Can passively cool highperformance CPUs.
Asymmetric design should fit various enclosures.
Doesn't work particularly well with fans.
Mammoth in both size and weight.
Awkward to install.

Silverstone's Heligon HE02 is a little harder to criticize considering it ships without a fan, but it falls short on compatibility and to some extent, performance. Although it could technically be seen as one of the best performing heatsinks we tested in that it managed to passively cool the i7-4960X, it doesn't deserve to be directly compared with actively cooled solutions.85

You may have noticed that I didn't do any sound charts, and this is because that is very subjective to the fans chosen to run with the cooler. Since SilverStone doesn't include any fans with the HE02 I thought it was not needed to show you the...63

These were some of the questions I was asking myself but there was one that would be answered as soon as I opened the box.This was not a refresh of the HE01. It is a complete redesign, a large towering cooler of aluminum. Here at [H]ardOCP we have...-

The Heligon HE02 ultimately serves a very specific need. If you have to have a completely fanless PC, the HE02, at the very least, provides a viable option.Passive coolers for high-end CPUs have always been something of a mystery to us. If you're...60

The SilverStone HE02 is a huge, very well-made CPU cooler, with a clever design that shifts the center of the heatsink from the base, offering better compatibility with motherboards and memory modules with tall heatsinks.However, we were disappointed...-

As a passive CPU heatsink, the SilverStone Heligon HE02 is very well designed for its purpose, with its wide fin spacing and a massive amount of exposed surface area. Its asymmetrical shape is key for taking advantage of the available space as a...-
