Summary: Silverstone introduced a compact external water cooling kit, named the Tundra TD01 a while ago, we stress test this silent cooling solution with a hot running P4 as well as a more eco-friendly Celeron CPU. Does it stand a chance against a high end air cooling setup? We´ll find out.
Summary: Please forgive us for being somewhat brief with this review regarding installation details and specifications. Rather than bang on about flow rates and all that nitty gritty stuff, we just wanted to show you how the Silverstone TD01 performs and look to see how this product can be improved.
Conclusion: The SilverStone Tundra TD01 is a nice, well made product that would look at home in a HTPC setup. The silent, passive cooling is a welcome relief to the constant hiss of fans, and will be of special interest to HTPC owners as any background noise would take away from, say, watching a DVD.
Pros: Stylish good looks, Reasonable cooling, SILENT!
Cons: Waterblock mounting is troublesome, Defective pump?, Too large for some (price and size)
Excerpt: Vattenkylning är något som brukar prisas för låg ljudvolym och bra kylprestanda. Vi skall nu se närmare på Silverstone TD01 som är ett försök att leverera ett lättinstallerat system som skall ge dessa fördelar.
