Leaked and destroyed my vid card.

  • Summary: I plan on contacting Silverstone, only time will tell if they will do anything about their defective product.

Avoid this cooler like the plague! I wish I could post pictures of the damage that was inflicted on my innocent computer!

  • Summary: I bought this sometime in July 2014. Now Feb 2015 the pump that's connected to the CPU leaked green radiator fluid, which looks and smell a lot like coolant you use on your car. My EVGAGTX760 caught the green liquid with its ram chips and is now no longer working.
  • Pros: Nice esthetic design, huge thick radiator,
  • Cons: packed too tightly fins/fans work hard to push/pull air through. pump leaks can kill your graphics card if motherboard is mounted vertically.

User Review

Ryan Perry, Techgage
11 September 2014
  • Conclusion: It’s nice to finally see a company try to change things up, not only in aesthetics, but in the actual design of the AIO cooler itself. Even though there’s no mention of this on the company’s site, I’ve read that the Tundra series was designed in house by SilverStone rather than simply using what...

3rd time the Charm?

Randy K., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the unit in Fall of 2013. The install was fairly simple- to the Armor+ chassis floor- but required mounting the fans on the bottom of the radiator as the tubing was not long enough to go around a Powercolor 7950 to the waterblock/pump.
  • Pros: Fast RMA's Yes- plural
  • Cons: Failing pumps

  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: First off let me just say I also have owned a TD03 that died 3 weeks after purchasing from pump failure and RMA'ed. When I first used this cooler I did not use the fans included because of the noise I've heard others say they produce. I started using the supplied fans about a few months ago. I de...

Worked Great Then Died

Dustin N., Newegg
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Currently waiting for an RMA, Silverstone support seems to be adequate, fast responses and such. Still I don't feel as though I should have to pay to ship back a product that was faulty.
  • Pros: This cooler worked great, had no problems with it at first.
  • Cons: Pump stopped working after about 5 weeks. I dont feel as though I should have to pay to ship back a product that was faulty. I've read online that many people seem to be having problems with this unit. I usually go with Cooler Master Kits, but I decided to give Silverstone a chance, since i do us...

Great at first, then almost disastrous

Britt P., Newegg
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I am very disappointed with my purchase and am not looking forward to the possibility of putting another one of these in my computer but since I am low on funds, I don't see me having another option.
  • Pros: The main reasons I bought this cooler over others were the design and the big radiator. I was confident this would keep my CPU really cool, and it did for about a month. The block is really solid and made well, as is the radiator. I didn't have any problems with the fans and the installation of t...
  • Cons: The pump broke after only 30 days of use. Just past the time I can return it for a refund, so now I am stuck filling out forms, waiting, paying to send it back and I am out of a computer for who knows how long. I knew I was taking a chance buying a cooler from this new company but I had no idea w...

Much better now (follow-on review)

Thomas S., Newegg
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I hope Newegg accepts this review despite the fact that I came up with a different mounting scheme for the CPU cooling block. The TD02 is too good of a product to pass up just because the poor mounting backplate in the kit.
  • Pros: Good cooling performance. With ambient around 22-23C, FX8350 @ 4GHz idles below 30C; 8 cores @ 100%utilization reaches peaks of 45C. I am still impressed by the quality and design of the CPU cooling block / pump. Performance = 5 eggs CPU cooling block / pump = 5 eggs Radiator = 4 eggs
  • Cons: Since this is a follow-on review to my previous, you can see many of the cons listed there. I docked an egg here because I am still unhappy with the fact that one of the threaded mounting holes on the radiator wasn't threaded, and the overall poor design & implementation of the SilverStone-suppli...

Initial review - I wanted to like the TD02

Thomas S., Newegg
14 September 2013
  • Summary: The CPU cooling block / pump unit appears excellent. It is of such high quality that I cannot imagine supplying such a poor mounting solution. The radiator unit seemed good, with just minor cosmetic issues - except for that one unthreaded hole (inexcusable!
  • Pros: CPU cooling block / pump unit is virtually solid, shiny metal. Build quality is very high. Extruded aluminum mounting arms for CPU block are thick and sturdy. I cannot say enough good things about the appearance and design of the CPU block. Radiator design is different from other AIO coolers, hav...
  • Cons: The socket back-plate required to mount the CPU cooling block was relatively thick sheet steel, but it was a poor design - or maybe I just didn't install it properly because I couldn't read the instructions (more on this later.) It took quite a bit of force to get the spring clamping screws attac...
