With the Fortis 3 MCE, SilentiumPC shows its latest mid-range CPU cooler. This large single tower cooler ships with one 140 x 140 x 25 millimeter fan and apart from that the design is customizeable. Furhtermore the price is very aggressively chosen, which make us curios to find out how this cooler perfoms.

Today we are going to take a closer look at a new CPU cooler from SilentiumPC, the Fortis 3 MCE. MCE actually stands for "Malik Customs Edition", indicating that this cooler is customizeable. Included in the delivery there are differently colored and exchangeable top plates allowing the customer to match a PCs specific color scheme. Apart from that this is basically a single tower heatsink, that can be equipped with up to two 140mm fan.


The base of the SilentiumPC Fortis 3 MCE CPU cooler is made from nickel plated copper while the heatsink fins are from aluminium. It features a total of five heatpipes measuring 6mm in diameter which are have been routed through a lapped base plate. The SilentiumPC Fortis 3 MCE is a standard tower-design CPU cooler and the overall quality is good and so is the nice and clean looking design. The most unique feature of the SilentiumPC Fortis 3 MCE is definitely that the top plate can be swapped with differently colored ones. Therefore it's possible to make the cooler match the color scheme of your rig. Apart from that the bundle includes a 140mm PWM fan which operates at bewtten 600 and 1500 rpm.

The bundle and the box are quite simple. The box is made from solid cardboard and although it is only protected by a plastic shroud our sample arrived without a single dent or any damage whatsoever. The bundled fan is attached to the tower while the rest of the mounting components are placed in a separate plastic bag. The bundle includes an installation manual, mounting components, two fan clips, thermal compound in a small syringe as well as a 140 millimeter fan and the heatsink itself.
