Corsair is renewing it's all in one liquid cooling solution series. After overhauling the high end AX series power supplies, their high end Hydro 80 and 100 models are getting a facelift too. Baptized as the H80i and H100i models; Without any clue what the i really stands for, however ignition or injection seem logic options. Most important upgrade is the inclusion of the new Corsair Air fan series, which already are renown for improving the cooling performance by a small margin.

The Silverstone Heligon HE02 is being sold as a passive heatsink for sub-95W TDP processors, so today on Frostytech we'll put this big, boxy, silent heatsink through its passive paces. No fans will be used in the testing, just good old noise-less convection cooling. We should note that wire fan clips are supplied for users who wish to add two 120mm fans. Silverstone's Heligon HE02 heatsink is made from a pretty common mix of nickel plated aluminum fins soldered to six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes. The heatpipes are capped off by a chunky nickel plated copper base plate. Noise wise, this is a completely silent passively cooled heatsink, which means you'd better have a case with lots of air vents.

We managed to get hold of the white edition of the chassis for the review and priced at around £70 it's set nicely between the mid budget and premium build chassis in terms of cost. So I'm expecting a decent level of build quality, features and performance from this chassis as £70 is still a lot of money.

Cooler Master is one of the very few top tier companies that offer quality products in an array of categories. Being that we haven’t tested anything from Cooler Master in quite a while I figured we would start off with a top tier component such as the Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid PSU.
