Excellent review, but where's the Archon and Silver Arrow side-by-side picture that you promise in the second set of pictures?

They didn't seem to fit since the review wasn't about them.

They both will be using a single TY140 fan and tested on high and low mounting pressures.
I don't get it. Did the box come with 2 fans or 1? How come you only tested with one fan only?

The NH-D14 and SA is designed to be used with 2 fans. If you only use one it defeats the whole purpose of those coolers.

You need to test 2 fan Archon vs. 2 fan SA vs. 2 fan NH-D14. Otherwise results are meaningless.

I didn't test either the NH-D14 nor the Silver Arrow in this review?

Sorry reading comprehension fail. Thanks for the reviews.

Your temperatures are not comparable across the two reviews which is unfortunate but at least we got the general idea of where things stand.

So from combining the results of two reviews,

SA > HR-02 > Archon

(2 fan SA > 2 fan HR-02) & (1 fan HR-02 > 1 fan Archon) at high pressure.

Yeah, I didn't have enough fans to keep it all the same across both the reviews.

I got one coming on the way. My understanding is that it comes with just 1 of the circular fans. Will be hunting for a second (matching) fan when it comes!

oh and repped for the review!
