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.

The SilverStone Heligon HE02 does its job perfectly and cools the CPUs without any fans. It copes not only with 95W CPUs as promised by its official specs but even with hotter models. In our tests the Heligon HE02 maintained stability for a six-core I...

So we’ve reached the end of our review, has the monolith HE02 given good thermal performance results or has it just achieved silence only?As soon as you take the HE02 out of its packaging the sheer size of this CPU cooler is a talking point just on...

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 noise...

The Silverstone Heligon HE02 is being sold as a passive heatsink for sub-95W TDP processors, so today on Frostytech we'll put this big, boxy, silent heatsink through its passive paces. No fans will be used in the testing, just good old noise-less...

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...

Video Review: The SilverStone Heligon HE02 CPU Cooler is massive, comes with a smooth copper base, six 6mm heatpipes & many fins. This product doesn't include with any fans, but one or two 120mm optional can be installed with the included clips....

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...

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...

Наша экскурсия подходит к концу. Представитель семейства безвентиляторных кулеров компании Silverstone под названием Heligon HE02 произвел приятное впечатление. Достаточно сказать, что в пассивном режиме он смог обойти такого лидера воздушных систем...

SilverStone Heligon HE02 целиком и полностью оправдывает своё назначение, справляясь в безвентиляторном режиме не только с охлаждением процессоров с тепловым пакетом 95 Вт, как это заявлено в характеристиках кулера, но и с куда более мощными «камнями»....

Druhý chladič zo série Heligon sa špecializuje na pasívnu prevádzku, o čom sa nás snaží presvedčiť aj dodávaným príslušenstvom - v škatuli za 65EUR absentuje ventilátor (cena odporúčaná výrobcom, u nás sa chladič zatiaľ nepredáva).Konštrukčne pasívu...
