Umm people who are stupid and want better air flow at the cost of sound level.

I wasn't saying everybody buys that exact cooler and does that exact thing, just saying people are willing to spend money out their butt for air cooling, but don't realize liquid cooling can be the same price if not cheaper.

A Silver Arrow comes with all the fans it needs. But $100 + tax is more than you need to spend.

OP, you are not showing your case, but you might even fit an Archon.

Anyway, order online . . .

Eh I never understood why people spend so much on high end air coolers like the SA/D14 the price is almost stupid high I don't care how many fans it comes with. Honestly, the top 5 air coolers are within 1-3C of each other and the $20+ price jump for a measly 1-2C isn't worth it for me personally.

If you're looking for other good/proven air cooler without the hefty price tag I think the VenX/Megahalem/TRUE +fans are still worth every penny in their own right and still keep your wallet intact.

Most places have the VenX/Megahalem/True for around $50-$60. If you buy two fans for push pull (the most popular choices seem to be: San Ace $22/each, Scythe Gentle Typhoon $22 each, Thermalright TY-140 $13 each), then they are around the same price as the D14/SA, if not more.

77Pat is exactly right, why pay $60 venX/megahalem + $20+ fans, when you can just pay $80 for Silver Arrow with two TY140s included?

You can get it for $80 right now at svc.com. I got lucky when I bought mine, $72.99

Thanks everybody for the assistance...I had decided to go with the Xigmatek Aegir. Got it for $54.99 (price match ) This should do the job for now. It came with 1 fan [89CFM (max) w/air pressure @ 4.1mmH2O(max)]. This is the same fan the Dark Knight uses. Since I already have the DK, I can use both fans on the Aegir for a push/pull setup. This should handle the little i5 760 with no problem while OC'ing

I am glad to see you did something smart and made air cooling cheaper then water cooling

Hope you like your cooler.

Me too It just does not make any sense to invest so much in a heatsink knowing that there are less expensive heatsinks that can easily get your OC in the 4GHz territory.

As for water-cooling, one day I'll stop being so one-sided and give it a try

Thanks for your suggestion.
