SilverStone AR02 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets Bronze Award


This time, we tested the SilverStone AR02 CPU cooler. It has a tower heatsink, three 6 mm heatpipes and one 92 mm fan, supporting up to two fans. Let’s see if this “compact” cooler performs well.

The AR02 seems to be a smaller version of the SilverStone AR01, which we tested recently, and proved to be an excellent cooler.
