Best Aircooler? - Page 3

post #21 of 49
^ Phanteks has the better heatsink

Silver Arrow SB-E uses fans that are outrageously loud ... that's why it's better when both have stock fans

i.e.

Overall, i would choose between these two high-end cooler. On my side, i have the TC14PE with some TY-143 fans smile.gif Didnt install em yet ! thumb.gif
and Silver Arrow SB-E cools the same as above... As does Alpenfohn K2, etc.. and Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme out cools all of above but only because it has TY-143 fans that spin up to 2500rpm with 130cfm... but TC14PE and NH-D14 and K2 will all be just as good with TY-143 or similar fans.

Check out reviews that have done both normal and ceramic coated.. no difference in cooling ability. Ceramic is used a lot in automobile racing.. usually to hold heat not radiate it. wink.gif

Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme does so because of 2500rpm 130cfm fans. Other top twin are just as cool with same or similar fans.

I prefer big to CLC. The only CLC I would even start to consider is Swiftech H220.. and it's a pre-filled component kit. Top air coolers with same speed fans making same noise cool better than CLC's out there today.

Even with when using identical fans the silver arrow SB-E heat sink is still among the top 3 designs along with the Phanteks PH-TC14PE and Zalman CNPS12X putting it a cut above the likes of the D-14 Alpenföhn K2, and havik 140. The difference is not huge but its there. So yes the thing that makes the silver arrow SB-E extreme the very best preforming air cooler out of box is the high speed fans but even so the heat sink it self is still top of the line as well. You always have the option to get the standard sliver arrow SB-E that comes with the 1300 rpm TY-141's and even with thous its still better then the D-14 and Alpenföhn K2 using there stock fans.

Just stick with the Hyper 212 Evo, it'll do you fine for your size requirement and it's one of the better ones out there.

I have a CM 212 Evo. I like it a lot but I don't think it's the best by any stretch. Works for my current build and what I use it for. If not wanting to overclock and against the stock cooler it would probably work pretty good.

It doesn't compare to liquid coolers at all. Watch that video and listen to the temps that he says, but look at the actual temps on the screen, big difference. The ceramic coating isn't going to make such a small cooler compete with much larger ones. Even if it could compete it would be because of a very loud fan on the xigmatek and a silent fan on a larger cooler.

Teksyndicate is a joke, they will shill anything sent to them.

Made it less than a minute of his dribble.. If ceramic increased heat dissipation way is it used to contain heat in exhaust systems? The Original Dark Knight cools as good as Night Hawk. Some say better.

Video reviews are usually garbage. Most competent reviews put it in writing because there's too much data to make it feasible to use a video review to present it. A short audio/video is nice to compare noise, but a simple audio clip does it too.
