The Specification is as follows:

silverstonearseriesDirect heatpipe has its pros and cons. While companies do project them as an effective solution, it is a cost-saving solution since it saves money on having an additional flat base to provide flat contact between the heatpipes and the processor’s IHS. Some direct-heatipipe solutions have a good finish. Some have too many even surfaces that become a lot for the thermal paste to even the uneven surface. It depends on the finish of the product rather than the surface. Silverstone does have the history of making great peripherals and aftermarket solutions. Here’s hoping Argon does not disappoint, but nothing can be said without reviewing them.
