No problem. I'm not mad either. biggrin.gif
Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 is a very good cooler. Not much different in cooling for the big twin towers.... I would guess about 3c warmer

I like top end because they cool quietly. The better the cooler the quieter it will be under less load. Like I said in post #36

On my present system the fans idle at 660rpm @ 24c and full load encoding is 1050rpm @ 48c... and by full load I mean you can not do anything else on computer while it encodes... Encode is set as priority and uses all 6 cores/12 threads to the max. CPU graph is a solid straight line.
Both TY-141 and TY0-143 fans cool almost identically to the stock Phanteks fans.

I don't know what prices are there but here there are some deals for coolers now
OcUK has Silver Arrow SB-E for £51.59, True Spirit 140 for £36.35 this week.
Scan has Silver Arrow SB-E for £47.98, True Spirit 120 for £25.16 and Cogage True Spirit 120 for £22.76 (same cooler, diffenent fan, but both fans are good)

Sorry that I havent reported back to this thread, but its been a little busy lately.
Also, I've been having trouble trying to figure out which cooler to get. I'm definitely going for a air cooler, but I ran into some problems when trying to figure out which one to get. I realised that I was gonna have some problems with most air coolers and my RAM Corsair Vengeance with their big heat spreaders. I think I have a solution to that though which is using some Kingston RAM I had lying around anyway.

So that kinda opens up the market again. I've been look at all your suggestions, but been having trouble making the "right" decision. I would like to get some bang for the buck, but I also dont like to compromise much on quality.

I watch ALOT of YouTube videos and alot of people are suggesting the Noctua D14. Is that alright?

NH-D14 is good cooler. If in USA the best bang for buck right now is DeepCool Assassin (Alpenfohn K2 in Europe) for $39.99
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=33412

I know people with them who have had NH-D14 before and they say it's just as good. Some think it's a little better. My own research shows it as good as Silver Arrow and NH-D14 and only slightly less than Silver Arrow SB-E and PH-TC14PE.. All of which are much more money.

Wow, that cooler costs 113$ in Denmark frown.gif

LOL. Guess you are not in USA frown.gif
Might want to add your location. Makes it easier for people to advise relevant to location. wink.gif

Always wanted to visit Denmark.

Who on internet can you buy from? Link to best would make it easier to see what you have available.

Right, should be updated now wink.gif

Well I can buy from everyone in europe. That means Amazon.co.uk or .de etc. Ebay.co.uk or .de etc.
And some danish sites too.

I can buy from US sites as well, I just have to pay 25% tax.

Well if buying from UK for example the cost of shipping would be rather high. A good price is cost of cooler and cost of getting it to your door. wink.gif

I've been buying from Amazon.uk quite a bit now and it really varies how much I pay for shipping. But if I were to buy computer parts from UK, then its almost certain that Denmark charges around £1-5 more. So there not much difference tbh. smile.gif

If it will fit in your case, over your RAM and clear your PCI-E slot Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme for £51.78 is probably the best air cooler available
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/thermalright-silver-arrow-extreme-sb-e-dual-tower-cpu-cooler-2x-140mm-ty-143-fans-lga775-1155-1156-1

There are three SA SB-E kits but fans are the only difference.
SA SB-E = 1x TY-141 & 1x TY-151
SA SB-E SE = 2x TY-147 (same as TY-140 but black housing & white fan)
SA SB-E Extreme = 2x TY-143 (look like TY-140 but red housing & orange fan with more powerful motor / airfllow)

TY-140/141/145/147 = 74cfm @ 1300rpm
TY=143 = 74cfm @ 1300 but 130cfm @ 2500rpm. Sound the same to 1300rpm but gets louder the faster it goes.

Control fan speed using motherboard PWM CPU socket. I advise using a PWM splitter that has molex/sata connecter to power fans. TY-143's draw .6amp each. Other TY-140 series fans draw .2amp.

Advantage of SA SB-E Extreme is performance is identical to other up to 1300rpm.. But if you need it there is about 7c more cooling available at higher fan speed.
