I've been looking at this myself, I think if you look into it you will find the Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-e Extreme, Phanteks ph-tc14 and the NHd14 trade blows in different reviews. I haven't found a comparative review for the Cryorig yet thats what I'm waiting for myself. smile.gif

I'm not sure which is the best, but all the dual-tower coolers like the Thermalright Silver Arrow, CryoRig R1, Noctua NH-D14, Phanteks PH-TC14, Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 are very good, and very close to each other.

Make sure your RAM will clear OP

sigh... nobody is asking ANY questions before throwing out recommendations? what if the OP wants to build an Antec ISK110 based system... frown.gif

1st order of business. WHAT system are you building and in what case... list the components you intend to use then we can actually help you. there is a BIG difference between using a 4310M chip and a 4820K chip biggrin.gif

well... till he comes back with a question like "how do i mount that on my laptop?" biggrin.gif

i thought OCN prides itself on offering the best advice for the specific build that the OP is looking to build smile.gif just throwing out answers when knowing nothing about the rig he's building is no answer at all biggrin.gif

besides THE BEST AIR COOLER ever built was the zalman TNN500AF tongue.gif

NOTHING beats 50 pounds of aluminum heatsink (that happens to be in the shape of a case) biggrin.gif
