Product 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.

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 passive (no fan) CPU cooler is, shall we say, BIG! This is a necessity with modern CPU technology, at least until they become more efficient. I installed this into my server which contains three hard drives currently. It seems to be doing a pretty good job cooling a 95W AMD Phenom X2 Quad-Core 9650 processor. Also note that I have a fanless power supply (Kingwin 500W) and the only air cooling is three case fans, two 200MM (one intake, one exhaust) and a 140mm (exhaust). The loads on my server are quite light and the CPU seems to run between 92 and 97 degrees Fahrenheit (33-36 Celsius). This is about half what the CPU's maximum temperature is. I give it a good score on performance, thought the installation leaves a bit to be desired.

First off, you'll need a long Philips screwdriver (#2) to install this, as well as a smaller one for the tiny screws that assemble the brackets. I am speaking to the AMD installs, the Intel one may differ but you still need the long screwdriver. It would be nice if they alerted you to this up front. The blade on the screwdriver needs to be at least like 6" long.

The back plate is the first part of difficulty. You are supposed to insert long threaded pins into the corner holes that will go through the motherboard to secure the mounting assembly. The instructions are in just about every known language but are very brief and poor. These pins have a flat spot on one side near the head of the pin and are supposed to slide into the holes, lining up a flat spot in the hole. The pins do not go all the way in easily, they are too large. I had to use a large set of Channel Lock pliers and it took a lot of force to squeeze them into the back plate.

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.

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.

I purchased this cooler for a AMD A4-5300 APU 3.4Ghz on a Gigabyte GA-F2A85XM-D3H in an effort to reduce overall noise. It was my first experiment with a passive cooler for a lower power CPU. . It was installed into an Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 case with 8 hard drives.
The good. Once properly installed the CPU maintained a consistent 25 degrees C with 2 140mm fans pulling from the front. The R2 has a side vent and top vents. It was whisper quiet, and never peaked more than 27 C under load.
The bad. Installation was nerve racking. It fit it in the R2, just, but even if I had square yards more of space, I still needed an 8 inch Phillips and a steady hand to secure it to the mobo bracket.. The gaps you see in the picture are the space by which you can tighten it down.
I didn't have much of problem planning my build to make room for it ( RAM in first in my case ) but I needed practice securing it to be able to get good contact and even tightening of the retaining screws. I realized that when the BIOS was reporting 45C on post and shutting off, I had not seated the cooler properly.
On my second try after the room freshening scent of AS5 cleaner, I had enough experience with Heligon to apply and secure it correctly.
After a few years of use, I swapped it out for the factory issue CPU cooler after my first time upgrading other components in the case.

Overall, it is a beautiful piece of work, that performs beyond expectations. Unfortunately there are too many side effects which make it impractical for me in the long term.
