More super-coolers are coming out. The recently released Zalman CNPS9700 LED and Scythe Infinity are followed by an all-copper stylish-looking super-efficient CPU cooler from ASUS.
This creation of the engineering and designing thought is called Silent Knight. The cooler’s knightly character shows up in its elements as well as packaging.
Here it is:
Package and Accessories
The cooler comes in a small cute-looking box painted dark and silvery colors:
This cardboard box has a plastic carry handle at the top. The cooler’s main features are described on the face side of the box; a detailed specification is printed on the reverse side. The side panels aren’t empty, either, telling you about the know-how implemented in the cooler’s design.
The knighthood theme is represented on the package and on the cooler with a large-hilted medieval sword. It looks very imposing and stylish.
The box is divided into two compartments:
The cooler lies in a plastic casing in the top compartment. The bottom compartment is occupied by a small cardboard container with accessories. Here they are, each item in a separate pack:
- Back-plate and fastening screws for LGA775
- Universal steel mounting frame
- Universal plastic back-plate for LGA775 and Socket 478
- Steel converter bracket for Socket AM2
- Universal back-plate for Socket 754, 939, 940 and Socket AM2
- Clip with a latch
- ASUS’ thermal grease
- Multilingual installation guide
- Pack of screws
- Pack of plastic spacers
I was at first surprised at finding no speed controller among the accessories, but the cooler is not expected to support one. That’s enough about the box and accessories, it’s time to take a look at the Silent Knight itself.
