Silverstone Technologies has made quite a career making cooling solutions for the PC DIY market. Their solutions are also quite often a unique alternative with out-of-the-box oriented ideas and far from having a “me too” design philosophy. With the all-in-one liquid cooling solution’s popularity, Silverstone also has thrown their hat in the ring with alternatives from the typical Asetek OEM solutions. An alternative that goes beyond just bundling a different high-RPM fan but having an end-user experience focused approach instead with a lineup that can find a home in ITX or ATX builds.
The Tundra TD02-E is a 240mm AIO solution that is part of Silverstone’s high-end line, marked by its “-E” designation in the name. Silverstone also offers -LITE coolers as entry level solutions and -SLIM coolers for those with stricter clearance requirements. The Tundra TD02-E replaces the original TD02 which was their first foray into AIO cooling solutions, now with a thinner radiator for better compatibility and rubberized hose for better versatility.

Product was given in exchange for work done to produce this review.
Its packaging is fairly standard for a liquid-AiO, sporting blue accents on a white box. Photos of the TD02-E are all over with measurements printed on the side so there is no mistaking what kind of radiator the buyer is getting from the store. The Silverstone Tundra TD02-E and its accessories are packed within a compartmentalized recycled cardboard holder. Each piece is covered with plastic to prevent scratches and most of the scratch-sensitive surfaces on the TD02-E unit also has further film protection.
