TRUE Copper still is a better cooler They are very good cooler even by today's standards. Exceptional for their size. Almost as good as D14 is.. and Lenny's testing show in post 5.

The surge toward CLC here was 1-2 years ago. Now many are coming back to air.. because it's easier to use, no maintenance, and rarely fails. Add to it the fact it cools as well or better than CLC...

Silver Arrow SB-E is 1c warmer than H100 and 1/4th the noise level we hear. The SA SB-E Extreme with TY-143 fans at same noise level as H100 (1dBA more) it is 7c cooler. wink.gif
Code:
i7 3820 @4.75GHz   Temperature is Delta
Cooler          Delta   RPM     RPM     dBA     Fans
H100            41c     2500            55      2x
SA SB-E         42c     1000    1300    38      TY-150 & TY-141     
SA SB-E Extreme 34c     2500            56      2x TY-143

jump in to 3:40 for results

But this is not what most reviews show because tests are done in cases using room ambient temperature for base temperature.. That's like using your house with central heating set at 23c and having the fireplace and a space heater running the lounge. Obviously the lounge will be warmer than rest of house, even wiht it's door open... House is room ambient, lounge is computer case, fireplace and space heater are GPU & CPU. biggrin.gif I constantly harp about using the air temperature in front of CPU intake or GPU intake for testing but few listen.

CLC radiator are mounted so their heated exhaust is kept separate for their cool intake and the increased airflow they create as a result of using case vents while air coolers are dumping heated exhaust inside the case and without proper case airflow the cooler ingests it's own heated exhaust causing higher readings. Also each air cooler creates a different airflow pattern inside the case thus changing case air temp. Even dependent on what speed the cooler fans are running. .

Not as good as Phanteks.
Nemesis is 80.5c@4.6Ghz, TC14PE is 80.5c@4.7Ghz
