We have seen numerous examples of SilverStone's Argon series of heatsinks, dating back to the AR01 which Morry reviewed in 2014. The AR08 is a new member of the series, 285g and 92x50x134mm with a 92mm fan and a $35 price tag. The small size and price make a good choice for those on a budget and who chose a smaller case which precludes the use of a Morry special cooler. As you might expect, the competition for this cooler is the stock cooler which came with your processor, which in [H]ard|OCP's testing that would be an i7-4770K. Check out the full review to see how well it can outperform the stock cooler, in both heat and sound management.
"SilverStone's Argon Series AR08 looks to address those building a budget mid-level computer that balances performance and budget. It does however bring some enthusiast features with it like direct contact heatpipes, a 92mm PWM "diamond edged" fan, and noise dampening technologies. "
