SilentiumPC says it's now shipping an enhanced version of its Fortis 3 processor cooler. The new model features a nickel alloy plating and also has the company's new Stella HP RGB 140 mm SE PWM fan. The cooler has a MSRP of 42.90EUR.
The European cooling and PC Case brand SilentiumPC presents the improved version of its Fortis 3 CPU cooler. For the Fortis 3 RGB HE1425, SilentiumPC has applied nickel-plating of the whole heat sink, which on the one hand visually enhances the tower cooler and on the other hand protects the material from corrosion. The tower cooler is also equipped with the brand-new Stella HP RGB 140 mm SE PWM fan, which not only enables modern RGB lighting, but is also more powerful at the same time. SilentiumPC is able to enrich the market with an improved and powerful tower cooler, which is particularly suitable for PC upgrades as well as new PC systems with modern RGB lighting.

Optimized Heat Sink
In the course of the modernization of the Fortis 3, SilentiumPC gives the Fortis 3 RGB a finishing touch. The difference to the predecessor model can be seen right away, due to the fact that the Fortis 3 RGB has all copper elements as well as the aluminum fins carefully nickel-plated. This gives the tower cooler a uniform, high-quality look and protects the material from corrosion. The black coated top plate features covers for the heatpipe end pieces and the embossed SilentiumPC logo. Thanks to the five 6 mm copper heat pipes that form the base plate contact surface on the Fortis 3 RGB and the large cooling surface, the tower cooler is capable of effectively cooling modern high-end processors.

Excellent Compatibility
The asymmetrical layout of the Fortis 3 RGB ensures optimum compatibility. The heat-sink is offset to the rear and thus provides sufficient space between the cooling fins and the motherboard, ensuring excellent RAM compatibility. Due to its overall height of 158 mm, the Fortis 3 RGB fits into most PC cases, which makes it a versatile all-rounder.

New RGB fan
The newly developed Stella HP RGB 140 mm SE PWM fan is supplied with the Fortis 3 RGB. It offers a new rotor blade design with a total of 9 instead of 7 rotor blades to further improve both the performance and noise levels. Thanks to PWM support, the new fan operates in a speed range of 500 and 1.400 rpm and provides a high volume flow, making the Fortis 3 RGB ideal for cooling processors with high TDP.

The large 140 mm fan is also equipped with 9 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a circular pattern in the fan hub. The LEDs are capable of displaying 16 million colors and can also be combined with effects. The RGB lighting can be controlled either via the RGB lighting systems of motherboards such as Asus™ Aura, ASRock™ Polychrome Sync, EVGA™ RGB Header, MSI™ Mystic Light or Gigabyte™ Fusion 2.0 RGB or using the supplied Nano RGB control. The standard 4-pin RGB connector is used for this purpose, which simplifies installation.

Easy mounting process is also ensured thanks to SilentiumPC’s proven multi-socket mounting system for the Fortis 3 RGB. Compatible sockets include Intel™ Sockets LGA 1151, 1150, 1155, 1156, LGA 2066, 2011-3, 2011, LGA 1366, LGA 775 as well as AMD™ Sockets AM4, AM3(+), AM2(+), FM2(+) and FM1.

In addition to Nano Reset RGB Controller and mounting clips, the scope of delivery also includes the high-performance Pactum PT-2 thermal paste.
