Care to comment on the noise and cooling?

Noise and cooling performance, Archon one of the best heat sink out there, just buy it, period.

If your case can fit it I'd say go for the Archon. The TY-140 fan that comes with it is just as quiet if not more so than the GT AP-15's.

I have to agree that the H50/70 is overrated. I switched to a Thermalright SA from a lapped H70 not only do I get better temps by a couple degrees but I swear it's quieter.

A few of the reviews I've read show the Archon within a degree or two of the SA with a single fan, and the same or slightly cooler with two TY-140's in a push pull configuration.

Also unlike the SA it doesn't end up blocking the ram slots.

I went from the H70 to the SA and never looked back. I LOVE this thing. With an unbridled passion. Srsly.

The height of the Archon is 170mm and the CPU Clearance of the HAF X is listing on the Coolermaster site as 190mm so it should fit without any issues.

That 190mm might be assuming you take the side 200mm fan out. Just something to consider.

It would be worth mounting the fan on the outside of the case, if need be. biggrin.gif
