SilverStone Tundra TD03-E LCS, Water That CPU

Final Thoughts & Conclusion

The SilverStone Tundra TD03-E features a rugged proprietary design not found in any similar looking single radiator LCS. Don’t let looks fool you. We’ve seen single radiator solutions that were no better than mid-levelAward_Gold air coolers and the only advantage they gave was more room in the chassis. The smart design of the SIlverStone Tundra TD03-E makes it a top contender for single Radiator cooling solutions. We will be adding a few dual radiator cooling solutions to the charts in the near future (Spoiler) so stay tuned and you can see how well the single Rad solutions hold up against the bigger brothers.

We like the smart design and compact size of the SilverStone Tundra TD03-E and it represents an evolution above other single radiator LCS on the market today. The full contact brazed heat sink fins have more contact with the liquid cooling tubes and provide better airflow to exhaust the heat. SilverStone includes not one but two highly efficient AP 12 series fans which is a nice money-saving touch. The cooling and durability of the SilverStone Raven is amazing to say the least.

We have a profound appreciation for the rugged universal design of the SilverStone Tundra TD03-E and if we were to design our own single radiator LCS we would change little of SilverStones design. The heavy-duty clips and wide variety of compatible sockets ensure that you will enjoy the use of your SilverStone Tundra TD03-E for years to come. Based on the single radiator LCS solutions we have seen to date it well deserves the Bjorn3D Golden Bear award.
