A Closer Look


The radiator of the TD02 is a dual 120mm unit with a 45mm thick frame. Plastic covered endcaps make up an additional 30mm of length, the larger portion of which is on the end with the inlet/outlet tubing. Many other popular AIO coolers like the Corsair Hydro H100 or Cooler Master Seidon 240 use only 27mm radiators, so the SilverStone is nearly twice as thick as most. The pump housing is entirely metal, with slotted bracket arms for Intel sockets pre-attached to either side. The SilverStone logo on top is raised and blue LED light emits from under it when the pump is in operation. It appears that some attempt was made to polish the sides of the housing on our review sample however much of the area around the edges was missed, leaving the unit in somewhat of a half-finished look. Additionally the aluminum top cover bears some marks and discoloration possibly from handling or a result of assembly. The power cable for the pump is fulled sleeved with heatshrink covered ends.


There are threaded brackets on either side of the radiator for greater flexibility in mounting configurations. The tubing used between the radiator and block is a semi-flexible plastic; although not easily bent, it's probably no more so than other similar AIO coolers. The copper base of the block appears to be machined flat but not polished or plated as it does not cast a detailed reflection. You'll note the lack of any screws though that typically hold many AIO block assemblies together. The 120mm 4-pin PWM fans can be controlled individually or combined together using the included adapter. The pump uses a standard 3-pin power connector and will run at full speed by default.

Let's get the Tundra TD02 cooler installed and tested.
