As I’m sure we are all aware overclockers, enthusiasts, professionals and even gamers always like to spend as much as possible when building and/or updating their systems to ensure the best possible performance and endurance through time. Some may focus mostly on processing power, others on available memory and others on the graphics but what they all have in common is the extra weight when choosing the right CPU cooling system for the job. However the largest segment of the market is actually taken by casual users who are not really interested in spending lots of money for a system and that makes things a bit harder since price/performance is always an issue. There are of course countless low-cost entry level CPU coolers in the market of every size and type but with a few exceptions performance is not something they excel at. Today we will be taking a look at one such solution and more specifically the Fera 2 HE 1224 by SilentiumPC.
Established in 2007 in Warsaw, Poland SilentiumPC brand is the business division of Cooling.pl, family owned distribution company specialized in high-end cooling solutions. Since then we bring high-quality silent PC cases, power supplies and cooling solutions that simply get the job done without breaking the bank. And how we do it? Well, we share the old-school belief that good products are the key to success. No aggressive marketing, no flashy banners everywhere, no mighty slogans. Instead we’re putting our efforts in effective design and smart cost-cutting so you get no fancy boxes or stuff you don’t need, just the pure essence of functionality at unbeatable prices. Product development process is focused on user-experience, how the product will function, how you will interact with it. We start from asking the right questions to the right people and choosing the most desired features.
Much like most manufacturers out there SilentiumPC chose to take the usual path towards building a successful CPU Cooler and so the Fera 2 HE 1224 is yet another tower/u type aluminum heatsink accompanied by a 120mm fan. The Fera 2 HE 1224 also features an direct contact base (some may know it as H.D.T but Silentium PC calls it HE), offers zero clearance issues thanks to its design/size and gives you the option of adding a second fan in push & pull to further improve its cooling efficiency. Design alone however matters very little since we've seen several attempts in the past by new players in the market which ended up producing mediocre performance levels at best. Whether or not Silentium PC can be amongst the very few exceptions with their Fera 2 HE 1224 CPU Cooler is something that we are about to find out.
