This time we tested the Thermaltake Silent 1156, a CPU cooler with a tower heatsink, two 8 mm, U-shape heatpipes and a quiet 90 mm fan. Check it out!
The Silent 1156 is, as its name makes clear, aimed at Intel socket LGA1156 CPUs, with the focus on quietness. Its box, shown in Figure 1, is small and made of simple cardboard paper.
In Figure 2, you can see the box contents: the cooler itself, manuals, clips, and a tube of thermal compound.
In the next pages, you will see this cooler in detail.
