Silverstone TD03-SLIM CPU Cooler Review: The Fit (Almost) Anywhere AIO

Closer Look at the Silverstone Tundra TD03-Slim »

Silverstone TD03-SlimOne of the good things about AIO CPU coolers is that you do not have to worry about component clearance for the most part on your motherboard. Since memory manufacturers have all but given up making sensibly sized RAM heatspreaders the standard,  AIO’s have become the cooler of choice for many. While it provides plenty of clearance around the pump/block unit however, not all cases readily accept radiators. For small form-factor and slimline cases, it is even more difficult because they are not often designed with AIO’s in mind. Silverstone however, has an AIO solution that fits their own line of low-profile SFF cases as well as those cases with only a single 120mm fan mount available.

The Tundra TD03-SLIM is a 120mm AIO solution from Silverstone made for use in compact cases where radiator space is very limited. The Tundra TD03-SLIM uses a 22mm thick radiator with an equally thin 15mm fan, totaling a mere 37mm height. Like with all of Silverstone’s Tundra coolers, the TD03-SLIM is a self-contained unit that requires zero maintenance and minimal installation requirements. It is compatible with all current AMD sockets (with the exception of AM1 and Opteron) as well as Intel Intel Socket LGA775, 115X, 1366 and 2011.

Its packaging is fairly standard for a liquid-AiO, sporting blue accents on a black box. Photos of the TD03-Slim 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 TD03-Slim and its accessories are packed in a box within a compartmentalized recycled cardboard holder.
