Let's analyze all the salient aspects together in this review.
SilentiumPC Grandis 3 EVO ARGB • Review from a test dissipator to aria
You may never have heard of Silentium PC previously.
Well, don't blame yourself: the brand we present today is actually an emerging company, like others we have already covered previously.
However, I must admit that in this specific case I was deeply impressed by the quality and attention that can be found in these products.
In fact, this is not a constant even in the most famous brands, let alone in emerging ones.
Well Silentium PC has struck us positively and today I just have to present you a air cooler with a really interesting quality / price ratio: let's talk about the Grandis Beast 3 EVO ARGB.
SilentiumPC Grandis 3 EVO ARGB • Technical specifications
Il Grandis 3 EVO ARGB it's a dual tower air cooler drawn with two one 120mm and one 140mm ARGB fans obviously included in the package.
The fans connect with a classic PWM and a 3-pin connector forARGB.
It is equipped with a small tube of thermal paste for installation as usual.
It has a maximum height of 159 mm which makes it significantly more contained than very famous competing products.
This model is not socket compatible TR4, but it is for all the more classic ones AMD ed Intel.
SilentiumPC Grandis 3 EVO ARGB • Temperature test
Undoubtedly the focus of a review regarding the heatsinks it must be the section that includes the tests carried out on them.
I spent two whole nights testing the different heatsinks we received from multiple companies and at the end of the session I don't deny that what I was surprised by is this Grandis 3 EVO ARGB as well as the other articles of Silentium PC.
I test were conducted with stress test 10 minutes on AIDA 64 Extreme and the temperatures were captured with HWMonitor Pro.
At the end of these, an average of the values was plotted first in idle and then in full load to obtain the final data which are those shown below.
The minimum and maximum temperatures therefore do not represent the minimum and maximum peak touched by the heatsink respectively in the idle (idle) and stress (full load) segments, but are an average of the values recorded around that particular segment.
It is good to keep in mind that this Grandis 3 EVO ARGB it's a mid-range air cooler e non enthusiast!
In fact, you can buy it for just under 60 euros on Amazon. This makes it truly competitive and competitive!
In fact, if we see the test results the Grandis 3 EVO ARGB it has performances almost identical to a Noctua NH-D15 which instead has a much higher list price of about 30 euros.
Unlike the rival, however, it offers a slightly more compact design and a few more lights.
All heatsinks were then tested under the same PWM cooling conditions. In fact, the profile remained unchanged for all fans for the duration of the test.
SilentiumPC Grandis 3 EVO ARGB • Appearance and assembly
The phase of mounting of this Grandis 3 EVO ARGB it did not present any hitch or problem.
The only flaw we found is that no screwdriver of considerable length is supplied in the package. It is assumed that everyone has a Phillips screwdriver at home; however it could be that you have it with a large handle that would not allow you to go and carry out the installation.
The screwdriver must in fact be used between the two lamellae armatures that effect the dissipation.
A small detail that can certainly be improved, which in some cases can be a problem, but in the good majority not.
Il assembly was quick it's reasonable. The installation instructions are simple and clear and this pleased us very much.
It is often a detail in which emerging brands struggle.
As far as lighting and aesthetics are concerned, I will not deny that although I am not a lover of RGB and I liked this cooler a lot about the lights.
There is to congratulate Silentium PC because for a similar figure it is not easy to make a product with a good combination of performance and aesthetics.
Even the packaging is treated in detail and the packaging is properly insured.
SilentiumPC Grandis 3 EVO ARGB • Conclusions
This air cooler is definitely one of the best pc coolers we've ever reviewed.
Il Grandis 3 EVO ARGB is a product with amazing quality / price ratio.
The performances are absolutely satisfactory, the simplicity of assembly is reassuring and the appearance is captivating and well cared for.
It beats the competition in terms of performance or performance per euro.
