Out of the two I would probably pick up the silver arrow but there really isn't much of a difference give or take a few degrees. I had picked up a silver arrow from micro center a few days ago but returned it, plan to buy the Rasa RX240 and add some more ram

It kept my CPU in the low 40's at load with my CPU at 4.2Ghz 1.42v Running it at 4.5Ghz with 1.475v it would reach 51-52 at load not bad.

im still debating if £15 extra over the HR02 Macho is worth it for 5 degrees better cooling with SA.

Pay a little more and get the Noctua NH-D14, excellent customer service, they usually reply the next day and never leave a question unanswered.

They're completely identical performance wise. Anyone who says otherwise is a misinformed liar.

The Silver Arrow is also minutely quieter, get which ever is cheapest.

Thermalright also have amazing customer support. One of my TY-140 fans started making an annoying clicking sound, they asked for proof of purchase and they sent me 2 new TY-140 fans and didnt even want me to post the clicking one back to them.

Tbh, I'd say the £15 is worth the extra performance, might aswell spend that tiny bit more to get the best out there so you dont have to upgrade in the future.

Personally I'd want the Silver Arrow for the better fans, but performance wise they're very close. You'd be happy with either.

If the D14 costs more than the SA it's really not worth it. Seriously I had both, they're the same. In fact I kept the SA and returned the D14 as the SA is quieter and cheaper, but performance was the same.

I would not waste the money on both of those. There are too many other heatsinks out there that are smaller & less expensive that will keep a 2500k at 4.5GHz and higher with nice temps unless you just want to have some enormous heatsink you can see through the side panel window...That's my
