SilverStone NT04 CPU cooler review
Greetings! Having previously looked at a case from SilverStone, today we're looking at a CPU cooler, the NT04, and how well it stacks up against the stock cooler supplied with AMD's retail boxed Athlon64 models. But first, let's have a look at the specs surrounding this cooler, shall we?

From the above, we can determine that this cooler isn't (I feel) aimed at high-end enthusiasts, but those looking for a reasonably priced and quiet solution. But, was this how it turned out? All will be revealed, after we've taken a look at the cooler in more pictorial detail.
