SilverStone TD03 Slim Overview
We’ll start with a look at the overall cooler and move to some detailed/unique features of the TD03 Slim.
The TD03 Slim arrives in a recycled cardboard insert, with every component secured in its own section. The slim radiator is padded by two additional foam inserts and the slim fan sits in its own compartment (clearly made for two regular 25mm fans). It looks to be the same layout as any other 120mm AIO kit, and should keep everything protected and in place quite adequately.
The usual assortment of mounting brackets and screws is included, although SilverStone goes quite above and beyond with a few key mentions. A 12V Molex adapter for the pump is included which is very welcome to see on a kit likely to be installed on a mini-ITX motherboard (which typically contain a maximum of two fan headers). Enough fan mount screws are included for a push/pull arrangement with slim and regular fans – a nice touch for a unique slim kit like this (slim fans are difficult to source) and a rarity for 120mm AIO kits at this price point.
The TD03 uses rubber hoses with a length of 310mm. A 3-pin connector powers the pump, while the slim fan is a 4-pin PWM/2200 RPM type.
The CPU block resides in a plastic housing, but the cold plate is all copper with a fine microchannel structure to increase conductivity. A relatively subtle blue LED shines around the logo when power is connected as the only indication that power is applied, since the pump itself is surprisingly quiet.
