Unlike the TD-03 SLIM, the TD-03 LITE is a basic looking model with a not-so-slim radiator and fan.

In essence it’s pretty much the like any other AIO unit out there.

Bundled with the TD03-LITE are the accessories, again no different from TD03-SLIM.

User Experience

Installing the AIO wasn’t as simple as it seems because the screws look quite similar, of course that’s settled once you identify them. One thing I like about the Tundra TD03 compared to other AIO unit is the backplate design, as you can see from the image below the mounting piece has a cut across that makes it stick very well to the base. On some heatsinks the mount is problematic and ended up being stuck on the plate during removal.

Benchmarks

The performance was tested on an Intel Core i5-4670K overclocked to 4.3Ghz at 1.25 vcore with room temperature set to 25°C and the system was tested with a 10bit to 8bit video conversion test. Below are the results.

The Verdict

SilverStone Tundra TD03-LITE retails at around RM 269, it’s a more affordable version compared to the TD03-SLIM but as the name indicates, it’s not as slim as the SLIM and as seen in the benchmark, it’s slightly behind the SLIM version in performance.
