I read some threads about people wanting to paint their heatsinks and how that may or may not effect the ability to displace heat... Does anyone know if powder coating would be an option? I'm looking to get a new heatsink to replace my H100 but I really want it to be black. Any ideas?

A lot depends on how heavy a coat you put on. Why not get a cooler that is anodized with a color you like to start with? There are several now. Phanteks and Prolimatech Megahalem for example.

I've ran stock fans, TY-140's, TY-143's, their new PH-T140HP's on TC14PE, Silver Arrow SB-E and old Cogage Arrow (aka Silver Arrow) and all are very close in performance and noise. I find the TY-14x to be quieter and better cooling.. but it's not much.. maybe 1c better cooling and the sound level may be more the tone than actual loudness. This is comparing them at same rpm. TY-143 is obviously much louder if you wind it up above1200-1300.. twice as loud if you max it out at 2500rpm. On my i7 920 and i7 980 they run about 1000rpm max at less than 50c on IBT 22c ambient... and that's just loud enough to know system is working. I could set them to 900rpm max at 55c but it's kinda nice to know they are running when I'm pushing system to 100% on all cores. biggrin.gif

New SA SB-E is a little cooler at low rpm than old Silver Arrow but we are talking 1-2c.. and at high rpm the old Silver Arrow is 1-2c cooler.

SA SB-E and 14PC are very close to being the same... and I'm told NH-D14 is right there with the above 3 too.. and a few more

Thanks for all the help everyone! I had looked at the TC14PE in black before and the only thing I didn't like about it was how it says Phanteks on top of the heatsink, I wish nothing was there. I also looked at the Megahalem, which I really like. I only wish this was a bit larger.

I suppose I'm just going to bite the bullet and get one of those two coolers. Again, thank you for all the suggestions!

Deepcool Neptwin is the cheapest on that list and is pretty silent. Has weak fans to start with so yeah great performance can be had out of that heatsink
Although i wished they made a anodized version biggrin.gif
