SilverStone Technology

Introduction:

The cooler market currently offers computer enthusiasts a wide variety of products that can be placed into several different categories. There are now coolers, which have been designed, based on performance, material, manufacturing process and noise level. Some manufacturers have started producing quiet computing performance HSF's for those individuals that don't overclock their processors and won't compromise noise level for computing performance. SilverStone Technology has recently started to provide thermal solutions for the PC market with a series of cooler products marketed under the Nitrogon brand name. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the new SilverStone Nitrogon NT06 CPU Cooler, a product which utilizes a unique design to cool high performance CPU's.
