The SilverStone NT07-775 Low Profile CPU Cooler

As you can see from this angle, the Silverstone NT07-775 resembles the Intel retail cooler quite a bit. Black top mounted fan, short stack of aluminium fins and the basic push-pin mounting, it's all very familiar.

Looking at the NT07-775 from the top, the differences start to appear. SilverStone uses a nine bladed fan with seven piece fan guard above the 90mm 23CFM fan. As I addressed previously, SilverStone claims lower sound levels with this 23 dBA fan.

The bottom of the NT07-775 is shipped with a clearly labeled "warning" sticker to protect the base of this cooler during shipping.

With the sticker removed it exposes the copper center core of the base. The base is far from a polished finish, but is milled flat and smooth.

Here we have a comparison between the SilverStone NT07-775 at the left as it compares to the retail cooler that accompanied my E8400. As you can see, the NT07-775 is in fact lower profile than a stock cooler and by a full centimetre by my measurements.

You can see here the basic design of the fins is the same as the retail cooler, just SilverStone flips the fins over so the flow in the opposite direction. The fan mounting is very similar as they clip onto the sides for support. The NT07-775 sports thinner gauge wires as well; this may help in flexibility to route the power as needed in the tight confines of a SFF or HTPC.

I addressed that the NT07-775 has a nine blade and seven guard configuration; this would help aide in keeping wires at bay inside those small confines that this cooler is designed to co-exist in. The retail cooler had much larger blades and virtually no means of keeping things completely out of harms way.

Here we have one last look at the SilverStone NT07-775 and the 4-pin power connection, awaiting installation and testing.
