Summary: SilverStone has left us with an unusual dilemma with the NT01-PRO being both a sold performing cooler and frustrating to install. Approaching the NT01-P as a CPU cooler for Small Form Factor or HTPC build, it will perform exceptionally well.
Pros: Versatile Mounting System, Great for SFF/HTPC Cases, Great Passive, Includes dual PWM Y-cable
Cons: Complex Fan Installation, No Fans Included, Sub Par Instructions
SilverStone NT01 Pro Low Profile HTPC CPU Cooler Review
7 February 2013
Conclusion: SilverStone’s NT01 Pro costs around £42 in the United Kingdom. Considering you’d have to pay another £10 minimum to get a couple of 80mm or 70mm fans for this cooler, that brings the total cost to at least £50 if you want fans. Now I don’t know about you, but paying £50 for a CPU cooler is a lot.
