Between the Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua NH-D14, and the Phanteks, it comes to personal preference I say. I hear good things from all of them and the difference between them is below 3 degrees or so.

It looks like the Silver Arrow is too tall. I'm looking at the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 and it should fit at 114mm tall (can somebody confirm that please?), but the description didn't include 1155 compatibility; however, reviews for it included CPUs that I'm pretty sure fit 1155 sockets. Anyone able to set this straight for me?

Awesome! Any reason not to go with it? Looks like a solid product...

I don't see why not, noctua makes great products. As far as I can tell it looks like its pretty high on the scale for low profile heatsinks and its almost dead silent.

My only problem is the ugly fan tongue.gif but thats just a matter of opinion.

I'd say if you are dead set on the skeleton case, and you need a low profile heat sink this one will treat you just fine. thumb.gif

Yeah I totally agree on the look of the fan, but if it works, it works. Maybe I'll replace it somewhere down the line. Anyway, I'll update the OP with that, but I'm still curious about my other question: "is it possible to use the PCI2.0 x16 slot with a third GPU for SLI, or can I only do SLI on the PCI3.0 slots? Those run at x8, which is the same bandwidth as PCI2.0 x16, but in the description it says the PCI2.0 x16 slot is @x4, so I'm not really sure what to make of that."
