Silver Arrow, but the difference is so small that it comes down to features and included fans; in that respect, again the Silver Arrow is better.

D14 is better if you have really tall heat spreaders on the ram. Get which ever is cheaper imho.

SA FTW. If your RAM has tall heat spreaders, remove them. They are useless anyway

Silver Arrow is a little better in cooling. Much quieter fans.
If tall memory is a issue, I would go with the Themalright Archon.

D14 is still a great product and still top 3 air cooler in my book, just that there are better options now.

no because you can mount the Arrow anyway you want too.
so it can be parallel with your ram.

The Silver Arrow comes with two very high quality fans out of the box, which saves money and trouble over the D14, imo.

Silver Arrow is reportedly a bit harder to mount properly than the D14, but take that with a grain of salt as it is only speculation as far as I know.
