overclockersclub Review

I am pleased with how it performed here. The cooler is quiet and is of good quality, the installation manual is clear, and it provides decent temperatures for just above the $30 mark.

SilenX have created a great product for those of you who may want to upgrade from a reference cooling solution, it also wont cost you an arm and a leg. The EFZ-120HA5 sells for around £20 which makes it a very interesting, low cost option. The cooler features solid construction and is designed to fit all the recent socket types from AMD and Intel. It uses three direct touch heat pipes and one quality ‘Effizio fan’ which provides a near silent experience.

techreaction Review

We were impressed with the good build quality which is not exactly common for affordable coolers like the SilenX EFZ-120HA5. We also found the mounting to be good but with too many parts. Socket comparability is somewhat important, especially to manufacturers as it widens your applicable user/ customer base... There was a lot of good thought put into the cooler and some new technologies implemented into the design.

The SilenX EFZ-120HA5 is a good cooler, with high quality construction, nice looks, simple installing system, and a beautiful box. It is also very quiet and has an attractive price tag.

pure overclock Review

The EFZ-120HA5 can be found for about $33 USD. Given this very affordable price when evaluating the cooling performance to price ratio, it is definitely a strong contender in the price to performance ratio. If you want a good cooler at an inexpensive price, then this SilenX is a compelling option.

Compared to Arctic Cooling's Freezer 13 and Freezer 13 Pro, we can see that the SilenX Effizio EFZ-120HA5 is doing a pretty decent job at staying at par at 37 degrees Celsius. I would have to say the SilenX has done a good job at keeping things quite while showing some good competition for its market niche. I am quite a picky person when it comes to noise emission from my computer, so on a subjective scale from 0-10, where 0 is silent and 10 is the loudest, I would rate the noise level to be approximately 2.0/10 at full speed. The Final APH Numeric Rating is 9.9999999/10

mega-labs Review

To tell the truth we did not expect the cooler to deliver such high levels of performance. It managed to keep our i7 920 at low levels while remaining silent during operation. The design techniques along with the additional top-base heatsink have certainly paid off for SilenX who have surely released a killer product out in the market. Costing around 30 euros across Europe, it surely is the ultimate alternative to a stock cooler, or even an addon for users wishing to overclock their machines.

hitechlegion Review

The performance was excellent for the price point. SilenX has released a $33 cooler that can compete with $40+ coolers. The next good thing is the silence. The 120mm fan cannot be heard over the case fans, even at 1600RPM. The fan was an excellent choice and has a great design. The price and performance is excellent. I can see the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 in any budget, silent, or even mainstream build.

hardwarebistro Review

For such value and affordable CPU cooler from SilenX, EFZ-120HA5 basically did a good job to secure some of the entry to midrange market since SilenX EFZ-120HA5 gives so much of flexibility to further enhance its performance either by using much stronger fan or even dual-fan setup. Quiet operation and 6mm heatpipe with direct touch technology are other SilenX EFZ-120HA5's selling points. Less than USD35, SilenX EFZ-120HA5 is definitely a good buy with its performance and it is also a universal CPU cooler which supports multiple of Intel/AMD sockets.

ninjalane Review

Overall we are quite pleased with the EFZ-120HA5, performance was good for an OEM replacement and the noise level was undetectable even when running under full load. The heatsink is not designed for overclocking but can handle everyday computing under normal and turbo mode performance settings.

hardware analisis.es Review

Overall we were very pleased with what was offered by the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 heatsink. The quality of this heatsink is high, the finish is perfect and it is well designed to deliver high performance under all conditions. In addition to the performance offered by the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 heatsink, the included fan was very remarkable, and is among the quietest fans we've seen lately - even at full speed. This heatsink is the ideal bet for fans of silent cooling systems.

pro-overclockers Review

The SilenX Effizio EFZ-120HA5 is a real solid performer and very capable of cooling all generation processors. And it does this using a really quiet fan. So, quiet that you will have to place your ear almost next to the cooler to hear it. SilenX lived up to its name with this cooler. This cooler is for those looking to achieve muteness from their machine. All in all for about $30-$35, you could have a very good cooler. Much better than the stock cooler and less noise than other after-market coolers.

The purchase price is very low for a heatsink of this size. It is truly very quiet in all conditions, and comes with the option to mount a second fan. The original box comes with a good bundle and the unit is compatible with the widest range of sockets, which goes back as far as AMD K8.

bjorn3d Review

The SilenX EFZ-120HA5 proved itself to be an impressive cooler and for anyone looking for a very quiet cooler for their performance gamer and not looking to push the processor too far this cooler is an excellent choice. The price is very good, the quality of the mounting is extremely solid, and feels like a very quality piece for a low cost cooler.

circuitremix Review

In our testing, it was easy to see that SilenX was able to accomplish their goal for the Effezio EFZ-120HA5 of having good cooling performance without compromising acoustic performance. When installed in a computer case, this cooler is essentially silent. The mounting system is versatile and easy to use, and it even includes LGA2011 support out of the box. Finally, being available for purchase under $30US, there is no reason why you should settle on using your CPU's stock cooler.

dreamwarecomputers Review

Even with the fan running at full speed the EFZ-120HA5 didn't operate any louder than a whisper above my other silent cooling fans. If you're looking for a good mid-end CPU cooler then I'd certainly recommend the EFZ-120HA5 - you'll get a great performance upgrade over your stock cooler and a pleasant surprise at how much quieter your computer is capable of operating.

thessdreview Review

Considering that some of the more popular heatsinks can easily run 60 dollars without a fan, this cooler definitely scores huge in the bang-for-buck category. Coming in at $32.99 at many reputable resellers this is sure to be a big hit for SilenX. For this price point, one would be hard pressed to find a complete solution, with the fan and even the TIM, that would come close to the great ratio of performance and silence that this unit provides. Efficiency integrated into design is the key to this class of heatsink, and SilenX definitely pulls off a winner here!
