I have the Noctua and it's a solid cooler, plus it fits in most if not all Mid-Tower cases better, where as the Silverarrow doesn't.

The link I posted for the Noctua is at $79.99.

The SilverArrow is $86. I will add it as an option though, as they're both great coolers, I personally prefer the Noctua.
Well, he did something wrong, because I have seen this very specific review criticized over and over again on this site. Every other review ever done has produced completely different results. I've used both coolers extensively myself.

Ok, well, regardless, I still prefer the NH-D14, I've seen a few other reviews as well, the SilverArrow is basically a copy cat of the NH-D14, plus it has 2 x 140mm fans, and doesn't fit in most cases like the NH-D14 does.

I ordered both. I'll be doing some testing too. As far as that guy's video comparison goes, unless he secretly changed something for the Silver Arrow's testing, it loses. If all he did was up the multi, which he says is what he did, then you really can't argue that. Also he was testing with an 930 or 950 can't rem. Both of which are going to be much hotter than your average 2600K. I think 5GHz will be easily possible on either. Will post my results when everything gets here.

Also, I do want to point out that he definitely went off on Thermalright. So I can see where some speculation might be that he rigged the testing.

Great Price-Performance again. Another option would be an XFX 6950 flashed to a 6970

This is actually a better monitor quality wise over the one with a webcam. The webcam is terrible and not worth it

I will agree with most of those quotes. Having a 2600K is more about just having the top of the line processor at the time. I do feel though, if you're not planning to upgrade for a year or two, the 2600K is a better buy for the long run. As for the mobo.. cmon you know that UD7 looks great. Yes aesthetics do matter to me.

Whoa!!! the 2500k really rocks!!! 2600k is a monster. 2500k is now the best bang for the buck right now imho.

Most definitely - the 2500k is all a gamer needs, since gamers don't benefit from Hyper Threading
