General + -
Overall, the SilverStone Tundra TD02-Lite is a solid product with a good looking color scheme. It offers good cooling performance with two 120mm PWM fans. The cooler is small with a tiny pump/base, so it will fit even in small form factor cases. Unfortunately we really didn't like the fans, which are unecessarily noisy. With different fans this would be a much better product.   - Cooling performance

- Fans - Noise levels 
Installation   + -
The installation is simple an pretty straightforward. With two included mounting kits, where one is for Intel and another for AMD sockets, it should be quite easy even for less technical users to mount the cooler properly in a heartbeat. The thermal paste has not been is pre-applied, which is always a good thing to see.   - Easy and practical
- Compatible Intel and AMD
Performance   + -
The SilverStone Tundra TD02-Lite offers good cooling performanace in almost any situation. With the fan driven at 7V and 12V we find the cooler in reasonable positions of our charts.   - Cooling performances  
Noise Levels   + -
Our tests show that the fans included in the bundle are noisy at 7V and 12V, ranking almost at the bottom of our charts and reaching 41.9 dBA when running at 7V. Rotation speeds at 7 and 12V are 1'440 and 2'460 rpm. In PWM mode, the fan speeds are 1'650 and 1'950rpm and therefore the noise levels are 43.1 dBA and 46.2 dBA, which can be described as well audible and loud, respectively.     - Noise levels 7V - Noise levels 12V - Noise level PWM


Recommendation / Price   + -
These days the Tundra TD02-Lite sells for approximately 79 Euro, which is a reasonable price. If you a rather high noise level is no issue for you, this cooler can be considered, since apart from the fans it's a solid product.   - Gaming PC - Silent System 
The Tundra TD02-Lite from SilverStone receives sufficient 3 out of 5 stars.
