Summary: 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 convection cooling.
Conclusion: Passive coolers for high-end CPUs have always been something of a mystery to us. If you're building a high-performance PC your system will be putting out a certain amount of heat and you'll want at least one fan to help keep vital components cool. And, if you've come to the realisation that a fan is needed, it may as well be on the CPU, where it's likely to do the most good. For these reasons, SilverStone's Heligon HE02 becomes an unusual choice for many consumers.
