Silver Arrow vs Venomous X Black

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Whats better? is for a 2500k, if i get a nice chip run it at 5ghz, if i cant reach that something like 4.8ghz

The Silver Arrow i get it for 130u$s (im from argentina) (it isnt at stock right now but for the time i buy it it should be, i dont know if the price will raise)

The Venomous X Black is 120u$s (remember im from argentina) but i have to buy fans for it... so 120+price of fans, idk if one or two, and i have no idea about the fan model i should get, oviusly this one is nicer than the silver arrow color scheme, im going to use lian li x900 and i care about the look.. so that might be a point for this one.

Ill w8 for ur replies . Thanks.

The Silver Arrow is a tonne better than the Ven-X temps wise.

IMO the Ven-X does look better, especially the black version.

The silver arrow is hands down better than ven-x in both performance and noise. In your case with the price difference of 130 vs 120, where the silver arrow already comes with 2 high quality fans, the silver arrow is a much better deal by FAR!

Silver arrow cools better and is cheaper since you dont need to buy fans.

Silver Arrow gives better temps and definitely the better buy since it comes with 2 fans and is only $10 more for you. If you're concerned about looks though you could look into replacing the stock fans later on.

i was thinking i could paint the fans, what do u think about that?

someone did that before?


Also i could get corsair h80 (i read thats the better one for what i want, am i right?)
there is no price here yet but the h70 is 145 for u to get an idea

If you're willing to pay the extra for the h80 just for looks and simplicity, it's not a bad choice either and the performance will probably close to the silver arrow but if it's like the antec kuhler 920, it won't beat a silver arrow.
