SilverStone Tundra TD03-E LCS, Water That CPU

Pre-built all-in-one water coolers for today’s hot running CPU’s are all the rage offering good cooling with none of the hassle of custom loop water cooling. Days gone by about all that was to be had been single radiator 120mm single fan that were little better than mid range air cooling systems. Things have changed with the introduction of the SIlverStone Tundra TD03-E all in one liquid cooler. The SilverStone TD03-E is a single radiator with two PWM fans water cooling solution that will have you raising your eyebrows wondering how it cools so well.

We’ve had hands on dozens of all in one Liquid Cooling Systems ((LCS) over the years and it was hard to get excited about the single radiator versions. The single radiator versions often offered little more headroom than mid-range run of the mill air coolers. If that’s been your experience with single Rad all-in-one LCS then it’s time to take a look at the SilverStone Tundra TD03-E all in one LCS. Lightweight and compact designed to fit on almost any machine with a rear 120mm fan exhaust port the Tundra TD03-E offers good single radiator cooling with push-pull fan support.

The Bundle

Don’t be fooled by the look of the bundle. The SilverStone Tundra TD03-E went onto our X99 test rig in the SilverStone Raven RV01 Chassis in under 15 minutes and with one glance at the manual. It was literally the easiest single Rad all in one radiator LCS we’ve ever installed. That includes removing the behemoth Noctua NH d14 which took up most of the free space in the chassis making it hard to work around the massive air cooler. We don’t like comparing Air Cooling to Water Cooling but since the Noctua NH d14/15 coolers are among the worlds best air coolers we put the NH d14 dual tower cooler on the charts so you can get an idea of what you can gain from LCS.

Suffice it to say that the bundle contains everything you need to install the SilverStone Tundra TD03-E on any of the following sockets. (with much appreciated leftover connectors we might add)

  • LGA775
  • 1150
  • 1155
  • 1156
  • 1366
  • 2011
  • 2011v3
  • AM2
  • AM3
  • FM1
  • FM2

Laugh if you will but going all the way back to LGA 775 brings fond memories of the infamous Q6600 double cheeseburger Quad core CPU, while not a true Quad core it packed two dual core CPU;s onto one die, overclocked like a demon and was a lot of fun to tinker with. We still have one in the lab and only wish we had the SilverStone Tundra TD03-E to cover its heat ridden tendencies.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
