Sunbeam Silent Whisper K8



These days more and more people are looking to have silent PC's. People are getting sick of the "jet taking off" sound when they fire up their rig, but they don't want to sacrafice their overclocks either. Manufacturers have been adapting to this, by implementing heatpipes and changing loud fans to quiet ones, adding more fins to increase surface area, etc. Sunbeam is one of those manufacturers, releasing their Silent Whisper K8 series.


The Sunbeam Silent Whisper K8 comes in a nice colorful box with pictures and information about the heatsink on every side.

Taking a closer look at the box, you'll notice that it boasts its features, like a frameless grilled fan, heatpipes, etc. On the back it clearly lists the specifications of the fan and heatsink.

Wow aesthetically they don't do a lot for me, they look quite ugly tbh. Although I'm sure that they'll push through the pixels quite well. I think I'll wait for next the next gen though. Agreed with Kemp here though, we need to have one for a reviewQuote
