Havik 140 is 166mm.. will fit in my Fractal Design R2 but True Spirit 140 won't. redface.gif

4.5GHz is probably reachable but so much depends on individual chips. I've seen reports ranging 50-80c @4.5 under Havik 140 and True Spirit 140. wink.gif

After looking at some noise vs temp performance on frostytech, the silver arrow looks very appealing. The next didn't do too well in the noise department and the fans aren't pwm. What's the difference between the silver arrow and silver arrow extreme?
post #14 of 33
ok, a few things:
-The Frostytech data is not exactly the best to use for a few reasons. The most important is that they do not test the coolers with the same fans to see how the actual heatsink performs.
-They didnt even test the new Silver Arrow SBE, just the old one that's discontinued.
-if you want silence and only a relatively moderate overclock, you might as well rather use a cooler with only one fan.
-the stock fans on the Havik 140 are not the best (not the worst either), the heatsink itself is great though.
-after looking up your board, most likely none of these huge twin tower heatsinks will fit on your motherboard anyway if you plan on using your pci-e slot since the CPU Socket is extremely close to the pci-e slot.

Suggestion:

Thermalrright HR-02 Macho, it's build assymetrical so you have enough space in the direction of your pci-e erxpress slot.

it comes with only one of these TR fans that the orginal Sivler Arrow uses so it's even quieter ovbviously.

Elohim is right again as usual. thumb.gif I didn't look at motherboard. frown.gif Sure would be nice to at least get in the game sometime. biggrin.gif

HR-02 does not get the praise it deserves. It really is a very good cooler... and very reasonable price too! thumb.gif

not even the dark knight ii? that looks pretty slim.

if i opt for the asus p8z77i deluxe instead, will it be more accomodating of any of these tower coolers?

apparently the havik 140 is a re-brand of a xigmatek. any idea which one?
post #18 of 33
Similar looking and built in same plant. But the similarity ends there. wink.gif
Havik 140 is 5x pipes to Dark Knight's 3x pipes.
Havik 140 is designed for fans on both sides, Dark Knight is fan on one side.
Havik is 135 x 60 x 160mm Dark Night is 120 x 50 x 159 mm.
Havik weights 760g to Dark Knight's 600g.
