Introduction

The SilenX brand is most commonly known for their cool and quiet case fans. SilenX, however, does manufacture heatsinks, power supplies, and other goodies. Today SilenX gave us the opportunity to review the SilenX iXtrema IXC-120HA2 Pro Series Heatsink. This vertical fin stack design offers plenty one of SilenX's very own case fans, we actually got two to test out. The features include a fan speed controller, exposed copper heatpipes on the base, and an entirely screw-less design making for an easy and tool-less installation.

Packaging

The IXC-120HA2 comes nicely packaged in a retail box. The front of the box has quite a lot of text explaining some of the benefits of using this heatsink. There is also a small portion of the heatsink that is viewable through the clear plastic. The sides of the box go into more detail about the different parts of the heatsink.


Inside the cardboard box there is a plastic container which houses the heatsink and fan and a small box which includes all of the parts.
