The SilverStone Heligon HE02 does its job perfectly and cools the CPUs without any fans. It copes not only with 95W CPUs as promised by its official specs but even with hotter models. In our tests the Heligon HE02 maintained stability for a six-core Intel CPU working at 4 GHz and of 1.265 V voltage that was running LinX (Linpack x64)! According to our estimates, the CPU’s heat dissipation in these conditions exceeded 200 watts. You could hardly wish anything better from a CPU cooler that has no fans at all!
Of course, the large Heligon HE02 needs a roomy system case, preferably with system fans (even set at a low speed), but every overclocker has one whereas ordinary users will be quite satisfied with coolers which are smaller, cheaper and humbler.
Of course, we should once again point out the superb manufacturing quality of this product (the only thing they could have improved is the cooler base surface finish). SilverStone Heligon HE02 is fully compatible with all modern platforms, easy to install and features a reliable fastening mechanism.
Overall, SilverStone Heligon HE02 is first and foremost a perfect cooler for those users who value quietness over squeezing all the juices out of their CPU. That said, we are proud to award SilverStone Heligon HE02 our Ultimate Innovation title:
