SilentiumPC Navis RGB 280 CPU Cooler Review

This is my first contact with a SilentiumPC product so I’m pretty curious on what they have to offer.

On the closed loop cooling solutions market are a lot of options. Some are better, some are worse but all base on a similar design so these “small” differences really count.

In this review, we will present the Navis RGB with 280mm radiator, which is the latest cooler of a Poland based brand – SilentiumPC. Brand’s name suggests silence. How it really looks like you will find out reading this article. Right now, I will only tell you it will be worth it.

 

SilentiumPC introduces new, proprietary all-in-one CPU liquid cooling solutions, the Navis RGB series. Available in three variants with different radiator sizes, 120/240/280 the units focus on built quality, reliability and performance while incorporating discreet RBG illumination.

RGB LED illumination system lights up the distinct pattern on the water block and the fan rotors with visually stunning yet discreet colors and effects. Supports all major motherboard RGB systems such as Asus Aura as wells as manual control via included Nano RGB controller and the advanced Aurora Sync controller available in SilentiumPC Armis TG RGB cases.

The Navis RGB units come pre-assembled, filled with liquid and ready for simple installation, no further maintenance is required. Available either as versatile 120 version (single 120mm fan), performance oriented 240 (dual 120mm fans), or the quietest 280 (dual 140mm fans).
