Nope... The archon should fit inside k62 without any problem. Bassdoken has a slightly smaller case it seems and it fits perfectly fine in his. Also, refer to the first page to see more about the k62 compatibility.

Ok, got my Archon and installed it tonight. Did some testing with it. It did beat my Xiggy Dark Knight....but not as much as I was thinking it would.

I ran OCCT for a full hour on just the CPU test. Here are my results:

Dark Knight
At Idle
Core #
0 30
1 30
2 30
3 30

Archon
At Idle
Core #
0 29.1
1 29.1
2 29.0
3 29.1



Highest temp reached
Dark Knight
0 52.5
1 52.5
2 52.4
3 52.1

Archon
0 48.6
1 48.9
2 48.9
3 48.6

So the Archon beat my Dark Knight by .9 degrees at idle and by 3.6 degrees at the highest point. One difference between the two set ups is that the Dark Knight had to be mounted North/South because of the mount and I mounted the Archon East/West because I prefer it that way. My Dark Knight was exhausting into my 200 mm top exhaust fan while my Archon is exhausting thru my 120 mm rear fan. This definitely could make a difference and I realize that. The other difference between my two testing set ups was that the Xiggy had AS5 paste applied and my Archon had MX-4 applied.

I knew before I bought this cooler that my temps were not really all that bad, but I just felt like upgrading because I could. In the end was it really worth it to me?? Well maybe. My temps stay below 50 C now and that is cool. Was it worth $75 to save around 4 degress...probably not. I think that this little test says alot about the Dark Knight as well. Great cooler for the price!!

Anyway I am going to attach some pics of the Archon installed. Notice the awesome wire management job!!

Oh and I had tons of room in my Storm Sniper case!! That is an awesome case!

You do realize that you just quoted me while referring to me, right?

I actually meant to tell you, I got a new case and I need to measure how much clearance I have from the top. I need to update my slot on the g-doc page, but I don't have editing power, and I wouldn't want to create another.

OMFGG... I messed up bad...

But I do have a legit reason tho... I was replying from my iPod, which for some weird reason doesn't show username above the actual post... it's just a whole block of text...
Also, I read the post wrong... I interpreted it as you asking whether the archon fit inside the case...

Now if only I can figure out how to put the embarrassed smiley on this blasted iPod...

Gah... I feel so embarrassed....

Lawl.
I wonder if he had issues fitting the Archon in that case. I mean, he shouldn't have, seeing as the K58 I had is a tad smaller, and it fit just fine in there. It was a tight fit, but it still fit. lol.

Interesting results. I'd say the TIM is pretty much negligible, the difference would be 1-2C MAX. But what I find interesting is the north south position vs east and west. To me, if you have top vents it makes more sense to have the HS exhaust facing that way than out the usually smaller rear fan.

Most cases have intake on the side, bottom and front, so the HS would be getting fresh air directly from those fans and pushing it out the top.

My case has the 200 mm intake fan in the front and 120 mm intake fan on the bottom. I have the 200 mm fan for the side panel, but I removed it to put my window panel in. I really do not have any issues at all with my temps. My psu is pulling air from the outside and exhausting it out the back.

I could change the orientation of my cooler, but don't really feel the need to right now. Maybe someday I will give it a go and see how it does effect my temps. I am actually thinking that I would have preferred the looks of the Venomous X Black over the Archon and the temperature differences between the two are pretty low.

I am trying to decide which cooler to sell...the Dark Knight or the Archon as I do not need both of them and there really isn't all that much of a difference between the two in my situation. I do however like mounting the cooler East/West.
