In the market for a new CPU cooler? Then you should probably take a look at SilentiumPC’s latest offering, known as the Fortis 2 XE1226. Besides the catchy name, it packs features like pure copper 6mm heatpipes, a near silent 22dBa 120mm fan and it supports almost all modern Intel and AMD CPUs.
The Fortis 2 is designed to fit all ATX case types, giving you 155mm space behind the cooler – though that is obviously reduced if you make use of the optional second fan mount – and it comes with some high performance heat paste too, though knowing KitGuru enthusiasts, you’ve probably got a drawer full of the stuff anyway.
There’s no heatpipe transfer technology here, but there is a solid copper base, which all six, dual heatpipes run through, extending up into the large array of aluminium fins.
The bundled fan is a DF12025 120mm impeller which spins at 500-1500 RPM, producing at most 22dBa at full speed.
