What comes in the box:
Going around the cooler we see that it is very very simple and there isn't that much to look at. With a very square design, the only distinctive feature on the AR06 is this beautiful four heatpipe system that features direct contact to the CPU and curves out and up in a paired pattern that looks absolutely great in lighting and thanks to the small colour pallette, stands out perfectly.

Colour choices also comes into play here within our conclusion as Silverstone's new fans featuring the blue and white/grey shades go really well with the copper heatpipes. The lack of nickel plating here worked out great as well because the copper really lit up under our case lighting and did not look out of place at all as the centrepiece within our comparatively large BitFenix Prodigy test bench case.
In summary, the SilverStone Argon AR06 Low-Profile CPU cooler is an amazing product that gives us great cooling relative to it's size and, thanks to it's size and complete lack of any additional connected components like you would see with an AIO water cooling loop, lets you comfortably forget about your CPU area in regards to compatibility, letting you go wild with your imagination for everything else. This is an awesome cooler for anyone looking to build a compact system, and even moreso for someone looking to do this but with a bespoke or modded case. This cooler won our Bronze medal, being highly rated in all areas other than total all out cooling performance, of which it received a great rating relative to it's size, however it was held back slightly by it's relatively under supported fan size compared to the 120mm or 140mm standards.
