    Global WIN Silent Stream Review - Conclusion


    (Page 8 of 8 )

    Water cooling is not necessarily for everyone. Many of us are content with high-performance heatpipes, SLK-900u's, and even stock HS/Fs like I. However, the GlobalWIN Silent Stream bridges the gap between enthusiast water cooling and effective air cooling, as it combines simplicity with the power of water to deliver an ultra compact size water cooling kit. Overall the kit is well built, guaranteed to never leak, easy to install, and provides a cooling improvement over stock cooling.

    But, a half full cup can also be seen as half empty.

    For $70, the Silent Stream is not cheap relative to other (air) coolers available, which probably perform equal or better to the Silent Stream as well. With a 32L/hr pump, the Silent Stream is in no way, shape, or form expandable or really modifiable, and even the radiator is too small to be used for something else. Tubes are permanently attached to the water block, rendering it useless outside of being used for Silent Stream cooling. The kit came pre-filled, and is shown to be ready to use out of the box, but had air bubbles. Oh yeah, I almost forgot: the Silent Stream is not silent at all. Though said to be ~32dBA, the Silent Stream runs much louder than any boxed cooler I've run accross, especially a stock Intel cooler.

    Thanks for checking out our review of the GlobalWIN Silent Stream here at Dev Hardware. I'd like to thank GlobalWIN for the opportunity to review this unique kit. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to drop me a line. Otherwise hang out at our forums or drop back to the homepage!
