Pros: VERY low noise at max speed. VERY good cooling performance. VERY easy to install, VERY cheap for the performance. VERY good for E-PEEN :p

Cons: NOTHING at all. (Should come stock with 3 coolers :p. It's of no use on the cooler, but it will be a great case cooler :D)

It's a big-boy, so be sure it fit's your case. In some setups it will cover the first (or first 2) RAM-slots. You can add a 3th TY-140 (or TY-150) cooler to it, but the results are just a few degrees°C (1-3°C).

Also installed one in my friend his case. His stock i7 920 went into the high 85-90°C range (stock cooler) when encoding movies or play games for hours. And sometimes the PC shuts down for safety. After I adviced him to buy a Silver Arrow he never saw temps higher than 45-50°C doing the same stuff on his stock i7 920. It really is THAT good!!!

Pros: Amazing cooling, the TY-140's are amazing!

Cons: Fan colors suck at best. my not clear some people's ram set up's.

Great air cooler. TY-140's are some of the best PWM fans on the market IMO. The cooler can kinda suck to install due to its size. The best part is the noise to cooling ratio with stock fans. I use ICD7 with the S/A and have wicked results. My 955 BE overclocked to 3.9Ghz with 1.450V my temps are great, idle is just a few 3c over ambient temps, Full load after hours of prime is a nifty 17c delta:)

You should do some looking at your case, and RAM choice before getting this cooler. There are some options for fan mounting to get RAM to fit, dose not matter which tower the fans are attached to. so you could run Pull Pull instead of Push Push to get ram to fit.

Pros: Very well constructed, great performance and results.

Cons: Big and sharp

When I first got this beast, the first thing I noticed was that its big, real big. It is 160mm tall, 147mm long, and 123mm wide. It can take 120 and 140 mm fans. The Silver Arrow is also a heavy weight coming in at a hefty 825g or 1.81 lbs or 1lb 13oz. May seem like a lot but the replacement backplate that came with the unit seems to be made of her strong metal that I couldn't bend (yes, I tried). The Silver Arrow also comes with 4 spring clip mounting, clips., and 8 anti-vibration pads.

The Silver Arrow comes stock with 2 140mm Ty-140's (Thermalright's 140mm fans with 120mm mounting holes). The Ty-140 are Pam controlled and a ultra low noise, 160mm long, 140mm high, and 26.5mm wide. The Ty-140's spin at 900 to 1300 rpm pushing about 28cfm to 74cfm.

From my personal, not so scientific tests, prior to the Silver Arrow, my cpu temps were ~40*c idles and ~58*c underload with a small overclock of 500 mhz, pushing my cpu from a stock 2.8 to 3.3. After installing the cpu and pushing my cpu to 4.0ghz a 1.2ghz overclock with idle temps at 28*c and load temps of ~48*c. Talk about a change, I was floored with the results. I should mention however that I used Artic Silver 5 thermal paste over the stock paste that came with the Silver Arrow.

My testing was on my AND 1055t with the GA-890-FXA-UD5 Gigabyte motherboard. My full system specs are in my sig.

A quick note about the sharp comment I made in the con's section, one of the fins cut me while installing, may have been just my dumb luck, but something to mention.
