While SilverStone's largest audience is with their wide variety of computer cases and power supplies, their cooling products have attracted a fair share of users. In the very near future SilverStone will be introducing the Tundra TD01 external water cooling system, but in the time being we have looked at their most recent CPU heatsink -- the Nitrogon NT06. When we had looked at the Nitrogon NT03 last year we were impressed by its cooling abilities for being such a compact device, and the NT06 is looking to greatly expand upon these benefits.

Features:

· Massive surface area
· Powerful FM122 120 x 32mm fan included
· Superior powder heat pipe design
· P4 Socket 478, LGA775, and Athlon 64 compatible
· For use with Pentium XE 3.46GHz / Athlon 64FX-60 & above
· Fan speed controller included

Receiving the SilverStone Nitrogon NT06 it was packed in a similar container to what the NT03 had shipped in, and its exterior is similar to SilverStone's other products. The retail packaging is largely black and it contains SilverStone's logo as well as listing all of the features and specifications for the unit. Inside of the packaging was polystyrene to keep the individual components separated safely. The parts consisted of the heatsink itself, the 120mm fan, the NT06 manual, and the various mounting hardware and accessories.
