The Taiwanese company introduced a bulky cooler SilverStone Heligon HE01, which is designed to cool down more or less all types of modern CPUs — from Intel LGA775 up to LGA2011 and from AMD AM2 to AMD AM3 + / FM2.

The construction does not weigh less than 1.1 kg, since in addition to two-part radiator (926 g) it is equipped with fan of 140x140x38 mm size. Linear dimensions of Heligon HE01 are 140 mm in width, 119 mm in length and 160 mm in height. Staples that hold the fan, take a few millimetres of space.

The thickness of a pair of «towers», joined by six nickel-plated copper heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm, is uneven. The intense air flow passes successively through a thin array of aluminium fins, and then through the fan, afterwards through a larger section of the radiator. Copper base with nickel cover is protected with a film from scratches.

The manufacturer claims that Heligon HE01 will cope with the withdrawal of 300 watts of heating power.
