Specifications, Availability and Pricing


SilenX iXtrema Pro IXG-80HA2 with Optional XG-3F2 Fan Kit


The SilenX IXtrema Pro IXG-80HA2 is a long GPU cooler measuring in at just over 228mm long. This cooler is no slouch in the weight category either, weighing in at 365g. SilenX uses a set of five copper heat pipes to transfer heat to the all aluminum fins. Something I haven't seen listed on most coolers I review is the total surface area being in many manufacturers cooler specs. SilenX proudly displays that the IXG-80HA2 has 2800cm² of surface area!


SilenX offers an optional fan kit that you can purchase to accompany your IXG-80HA2 and that is the IGX-3F2 three piece fan kit. On SilenX's website they show these fans to be displayed with blue LED lit fans. The kit I received for testing was not lit with LED's at all. These 80mm fans are quite capable with up to 33 CFM per fan and they can be as quiet as 8 dBA under the lowest setting of operation. These fans clip into place in three various positions, depending on your specific needs. I will explain more on the fans a bit later.


SilenX says that they will retail at a price of $59.95 USD for the heat sink and $24.95 USD for the optional fan kit. With both pieces being needed in 99% of installations, this makes the combo one of the most expensive solutions to opt to buy. With the cooler not actually being on shelves at this time, the pricing may change and of course will vary from e-tailer to e-tailer.
