Description

The all new Heligon HE02 CPU cooler is designed for both performance and quietness. The wide aluminum fins spacing are specially designed to minimize noise when air travel through its heatsink. The double cross shape of the cooler maximizes cooling surface and at the same time makes installation an ease on any motherboard. The corners of the crosses enable motherboard mounting even after the cooler has been installed while inner corners between the two crosses are to facilitate installation of the cooler’s bracket onto the motherboard. The entire cooler is asymmetrically designed so it can be installed optimally in different motherboard and chassis. The Heligon HE02 is capable of safely cooling high-end CPUs such as the Intel Core i7 3960K without cooling fan directly attached. And using fans from the chassis it can also cool CPUs with TDP rating of up to 130W. Fan clips are included for optional 120mm fan mountings to enable HE02 to obtain cooling performance that rival the best air coolers on the market. For those looking to obtain the highest cooling performance at the lowest noise possible, the SilverStone Heligon HE02 is an unbeatable solution.

    Works like a champ. It’s big, and a tight fit in my Antec mini-ATX case, but it works and all is quiet on the home front!

    powerful and quiet. Fit with P8Z77 Pro board. I had to take off the board to install it.

    I installed this thing with one hand (I had a broken arm) on a lga 1155 board. I have it on a intel 3570k and it is extremely stable at stock speeds (have not tried to overclock). The thing is extremely big and has plenty surface area for cooling. I love that its not symmetrical so you can turn it to a position that is most convenient for you. i have it hovering over my bare bones ram. I would have to take it off in order to add/remove more ram. It does not block any PCI slots. Enjoy the silence.

    If you are using a mini or micro case this could be a problem. It maybe fits and maybe not. So be sure about measures and sizes before you buy it. I installed it on a mini case almost with no room on it but it worked. Tempts went down pretty fast and they were stable.
    It’s installed for a FX 6300 and it’s used for number crushing mainly.

    Great passive/silent cooling!
    I reused this fan with an Intel 6700k and a Fractal Design Core 500 case.
    Talk about silent but deadly!
    Very compact case but still manages to house this monster of a cooler. Just add a slim 140mm fan, and you’re good to go!

    Cons: Installation is still a pain

    Original review:
    I bought this to put on my Intel 2500k CPU, and I’m very impressed by its performance. Initially, I put a low speed fan on it, but temps were quite low, so I tried it without a fan.

    With only one low-power case fan, and no fan at all on the Heligon HE02 (as well as a modest VGA cooler), my CPU idles at around 30-33 degrees. That’s better performance than you will commonly see from many, much louder, coolers. The only drawbacks are the difficulty of installation and motherboard compatibility, but as long as you attach everything necessary to the motherboard ahead of time, and have a compatible board, it works great.

    Just be sure to have a long screwdriver on hand. I didn’t at first, so installation had to wait for a trip to the hardware store.

    This is the biggest heatsink I’ve ever seen. It was also the only heatsink that I had to read the instructions for when installing. It was also the hardest heatsink to install.

    Now, that said, this thing is a darn good product. I’m cooling my AMD 5800k APU (100 watt) passively and it’s keeping it to about 55C while gaming. Mind you, I only have 1 fan in my entire case. This is one of the ultimate heatsinks out there if you are looking to run fanless.

    I have this heat sink attached to a XEON Quad-Core E3-1270V2 running at 3.5GHz without fans attached. In the past month I haven’t seen core temperatures go above 50 degrees Celsius so I’m very happy. The trick with any product like this is to stay within the specs. The spec says it can handle up to 95W fanless, and my processor maxes out at around 65W. That’s well within the range it’s designed to cool effectively, and it does the job. I do have 2 120mm case fans in my case to move air around though, because it only makes sense that there needs to be at least some air flow across this thing.

    The only drawback is its size. It’s huge. It’s asymmetrical, so you can turn it to accommodate the layout of your motherboard, but with my Asus P8CWS it hovers over the ram slots. My no-frills dimms fit nicely underneath it with room to spare, but it might have been a problem if I went with the fancy dimms with the big heat sinks on them. Adding memory in the future might be a challenge without removing and reattaching the Heligon… but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Overall I’m happy with this product and love that I can get rid of one more fan in my box.
