My fault for not keeping up with everything - just got too much to do.

Just saw some newer reviews on the Thermalright Silver Arrow. It's basically a Cogage Arrow, but comes with two Thermalright TY-140 fans. The price is $5 less than the NH-D14 so that's a wash.
The Vortex review was pretty impressive (see Vortex Silver Arrow review).
What surprised me is that Xbit labs commented so much about how much quieter the Thermalright fans were. (see Xbit Labs Silver Arrow review) Also, the fans are PWM which I could use on the board.
Overclockersclub had a short pre-release review as well (see OCClub Silver Arrow review).
where it lost to the Prolimatech Super Mega on the 3.4Ghz OC load tests (pretty mild OC for a test IMO).
The only downside is that by having two 140mm fans rather than a 120mm in front, it leaves even less room for the DDR3. I guess I could replace it with a 120mm later, but I'm not sure if you can even do that with the clips.
I plan to call Thermalright Monday morning & see if I can get some verification on compatability with the motherboard (should be), GSkill ripjaws (not sure at all) and using a 120mm fan in front if the GSkills won't fit.
This is the last question I have, and I very much appreciate all the help.
***FWIW - decided to go w/ the Silver Arrow. Either one is good, but I like the Thermalright PWM 140mm fans. Only problem is how to position them to fit the DDR3
Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone for there help. Parts on the way & hopefully I'll be building this weekend.
