ASUS is turning out so many products in so many market sectors that it would be odd if we didn’t find a CPU cooler among them. However, earlier coolers from ASUS were not very efficient and the company now tries to correct this by introducing two new models on heat pipes. They are called Silent Square Pro and Silent Square.
The senior, Pro, model differs from the junior one in having a differently shaped casing and a higher fan speed. It also comes with a speed controller that also supports speed monitoring.
But in this review I’ll be talking about the simpler and cheaper ASUS Silent Square.
The second word in the cooler name turned to be an abbreviation that spells out like this:
- Superior performance
- Quiet (with a noise level of 18dBA)
- Universal application (supports K8, LGA775 and Socket 478 platforms)
- Aesthetics (highlighted fan)
- Reliable (cools the CPU power circuit)
- Easy assembly
