SilverStone Tundra TD02 All-in-one (AiO) CPU Cooling System Review
28 July 2014
Excerpt: All-in-one (AiO) CPU cooling systems are all the rage these days. They offer the performance of a custom liquid loop with the ease of installation and low maintenance of a standard air cooler. All of the big manufacturers have gotten in on the AiO craze and most use similar-looking units with different logos but SilverStone decided to go a different route with their Tundra series of AiO coolers.
Excerpt: If you’ve been following the CPU-cooling market over the past year or so, you’ve probably noticed some stagnation. Multiple vendors license a design from a few manufacturers, resulting in a roughly identical product. Sometimes the fan control software is the same program with a different skin. Wouldn’t it be nice to shake things up a bit? Silverstone seems to think so, and it seems to understand that it’s not just about looking fancy.
Summary: The Tundra TD02 and its smaller sibling, the TD03, mark SilverStone's foray into AIO liquid cooling. This is certainly not a new or barren marketplace. Looking back, it was five years ago when Asetek-based coolers first began appearing and I tested the NorthQ 3850 and Corsair H50. Since then, AIO have increased in popularity and diversity with other big names like Zalman, Thermaltake and Cooler Master joining the fray.
Summary: Like its
, the SilverStone TD02 has a unique look that differs from the other sealed liquid cooling systems we saw to date. The metallic block is beautiful, and the big radiator looks like it has been designed for computer cooling applications, not for use with engines or industrial machines like most others.
The cooling performance of the TD02, on the other hand, was excellent, reaching the same level of the best watercoolers we tested so far.

Summary: The SilverStone Tundra TD02 Liquid Cooler is an all-in-one cooler that looks great, is maintenance free, well constructed, has a large 240mm aluminum radiator, quiet pump, comes with a copper waterblock and includes two 120mm fans. This all-in-one cooler rocks!

Conclusion: The SilverStone TD02 has a recommended retail price of $130.95 USD excluding VAT and European pricing of €109 excluding VAT, so that’s about £95 in UK pricing. If we add VAT to all of those we are talking $157/€130/£115 final prices, though in the USA many states lack sales taxes so $130.95 may be the final end user price. Now as a UK citizen working with a UK site we will be judging this from the EU/UK pricing perspective of €130/£115.
Pros: Excellent thermal performance, Astonishing acoustic performance – totally silent pump, Premium build quality, Unique and effective radiator design, Easy and effective mounting procedure, 5 year warranty
Cons: Expensive, Cables not black/sleeved from edge of frame to the motor, No extra long fan screws for push-pull, Thickness is substantial, may not fit many cases at 75mm thick with one set of fans, FEP tubing not to everyone’s taste
Summary: When choosing an AIO cooler there are plenty to choose from in todays market so its really up to the end user and what they likes or fits into there scheme. This was an excellent cooler and in my personal opinion SilverStone did an excellent job for there first AIO unit. This is one of the AIO CPU coolers you need to look at before making your purchase.
Pros: Unique color and styling; Tight fin array; All in One solution; Excellent performance

Excerpt: Готовые к использованию СВО для охлаждения центрального процессора, находясь на рынке уже несколько лет, так и не завоевали чрезмерной популярности. Тому мы видим три причины: высокая стоимость, неопределенный срок наработки на отказ и эффективность, не слишком отличающаяся от обычных воздушных кулеров. В выводах к обзору Cooler Master Seidon 240M уже отмечалось, что будущее подобных охладителей лежит в области двухсекционных решений.
