Introduction: 

Earlier this week we had the chance to look at a cooler from Thermolab, the Micro Silencer (full review of the Thermolab Micro Silencer can be found here). Today we are going to look at another offering from Thermolab, the Nano Silencer, which looks very similar to the Micro Silencer, with the biggest difference being the Nano Silencer is even smaller.

Thermolab is a brand new cooling company based out of Korea, and at the moment the Micro Silencer and Nano Silencer coolers are their only two products listed on their website. Both of these cooler are low profile coolers, and are intended for low-voltage processors, and/or small cases that don't have room for a big CPU cooler.

To recap our experiences with the Micro Silencer, the cooler isn't the best performing cooler that has crossed our bench, however when used in the situations that it was designed for it, the performance is adequate, and it also remains nice and quiet and gets the job done. From first looking at the Nano Silencer, it looks like performance is going to be quite similar to the Micro Silencer, so before we even start I can say pretty confidently that the Nano Silencer isn't going to break any records for low temperatures, however it will be interesting to see how similar the performance between the two coolers is, and how they compare against each other.

 

First Impressions:

Well, much like the Micro Silencer, the Nano Silencer cooler that Thermolab sent us came in a plain brown cardboard box. I'm not going to worry too much about how the packaging looks, because in reality do most enthusiasts base their buying decision on packaging or what's inside? If you're looking for a cooler that comes in a pretty box, this cooler isn't for you.

Much like the packaging, the cooler inside (Nano Silencer) looks very, very, similar to the Micro Silencer, only smaller, and as you will see later on in the installation section, its barely taller than the memory.

I've also included a section where I have a couple pictures of the Micro Silencer beside the Nano Silencer to show the differences.

As you can see in the pictures, both coolers have relatively the same design. the Nano Silencer is just even smaller than the Micro Silencer.
