The cooler bases on the new technology. SilentTower has 3 copper pipes connected with a copper base, this allows for better heat dissipation. The cooler features 90x90x25mm side-mounted Silent Fan that provides horizontal airflow to the heatsink grid with high fin density. Unlike standard solutions that pump air only perpendicular to impeller, Silent Fan is designed to suck air from various directions.


SilentTower will go on sale in April this year.
