Plus the SA , looks as sexy as hell . There in different cases but the cpu is the same a 3570k at 4.5 . In my opinion the SA gives the h100i a good run for the title.

You have 3x TY-147 140mm fans on Silver Arrow and ?x PH-F120HP 120mm fans on I assume a TC12DX as that's what the F120PH fans come on, so of course the Silver Arrow will perform better.. That's like comparing golden Delicious apples to crab apples.

Silver Arrow is about the same as Silver Arrow SB-E (warmer at low fan speed and cooler at high fan speed). Plus it takes 3x 120mm fans to equal 2x similar 140mm fans.. Many of us think the TY-147 (same as TY-140) fans are better than Phanteks fans as well.

I have both SA SB-E and Phanteks TC14PE and have ran them extensively using the same fans on same system.. (TY-140, TY-143, PH-F140TS and the new Phanteks PH-F140HP fans. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1291-page5.html
There's not much difference between them. Best are TY-14x, than PH-F140HP, than PH-F140TS but that's maybe 2-3c max . Definitely not 5-7c unless you are using TY-143's

Silver Arrow of course. wink.gif

Either are fine. I initially wanted the Phanteks, but after looking at both and assessing my current needs, and case layout, and size, and other issues including aesthetics, I eventually went with the silver arrow. It may not be as good as the phanteks, but it is only a few degrees worse at worst. Both will kick butt. my 5ghz OC peaked at 47C* with very cool ambients.

Is there a cheaper alternative to these? $90 is a lot for a CPU cooler in my opinion. I don't mean something as cheap as a 212evo but something that's almost as good for less money. I currently have a xigmatek s1283(3 yrs old) on a fx 8320 which starts to thermal throttle in the mid 60s so I need something better but I don't think I could justify 90 to my wife

I would say Noctua D14 as well. Performance is amongst the the top while being super quiet. I hear my case and gpu fans but rarely the noctua fans even while running cpu intense tasks.

That's a whole lot of heatpipes.Reminds me of the Thermalright TRUE extreme from a couple years ago. Anything a little cheaper? I've been out of the game for a little while but from what I can tell, best air coolers for price point:

~$30 or less Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
?
~$60 NZXT HAVIK-140
~$90+ Noctura dh14 or Phantek ph-tc14pe

What heat sink falls in between the the hyper 212 and Nzxt? ~$45 has always been a sweet-spot for myself and other consumers.
