Silverstone Tundra Lite Liquid CPU Coolers Hitting Market on July 13
The GPU liquid cooling market already has a lot of competition, but that doesn’t mean that Silverstone can’t step in. Silverstone introduces two new water coolers, the Tundra Lite series, the ultimate all-in-one liquid coolers.
The TD02-LITE and the TD03-LITE are the new liquid coolers that aren’t just ‘new’ but are budget oriented and different from what consumers usually see in the market. Both models carry the same basic design however pack different radiators.
Well not exactly, radiators are the same – the difference lies between their number. The TD02-LITE carries dual-120 mm radiators, meaning that it contains 240 mm of radiators in total. The TD03-LITE on the other hand is packed with a single 120 mm radiator. Note that both radiators are completely made out of aluminum and are 27 mm thick.
Silverstone uses 0.2 mm micro-channel structure made out of plastic with copper cold plate as the CPU blocks. The pump built inside the CPU block is powered on a 12 V line and it spins at 2500 RPM. It isn’t considered the most powerful pump, reason being the limited 280 mA that it draws.
These fans can usually spin between 1500 and 2500 RPM controlled through PWM and push up to 92.5 CFM. The maximum RPM produces 3.5 mm of static pressure which is enough to push through the radiators.
Silverstone says that these water coolers are compatible with almost all of the sockets. Namely AMD’s FM2+ and AM3+ sockets and Intel’s LGA1150 and LGA2011-3.
Good thing is these simple all-in-one water coolers know how to do their job and they are kind of affordable. Actual retail prices may vary, for now these are just the MSRP. The TD02-LITE will be available for $83.44 while the TD03-LITE for $64.40 on July 13.
