SilverStone NT06-E CPU Cooler Review

Introduction

This time we reviewed NT06-E cooler from SilverStone, which features a copper base, five heatpipes and a horizonal heatsink, with room for a 120 mm fan, which does not come with the cooler. Check out the results from our tests!

NT06-E differs from all other coolers we tested so far because it does not come with a fan. According to the manufacturer, this allows more flexibility - which can be true to some buyers -, because many enthusiasts like to choose top shelf fans to upgrade their coolers. When comparing prices between coolers you must take into account the extra cost of a good fan when adding MT06-E into the comparison.

On this test we used FM123 fan that SilverStone sent us with the NT06-E sample. As we explained, the fan must be purchased separately and the performance from this cooler will depend on the fan you choose.

NT06-E box is made of a thick brown cardboard, which is an "enviromentally correct" material.

Inside the box we found the cooler, installation hardware and a tube of  gray thermal compound.

In Figure 3 you can have a general look of NT06-E. Its design resembles Noctua C12P we tested recently.

Viewing the cooler from the side we can see that the main heatsink has some distance from the base, which has a small aluminum heatsink to help with the cooling.
