*Thermalright Archon Club* - Page 5

post #41 of 640
Hey, I'm liking this new club, good job! I'm actually planning n buying the archon to replace my D14, purely for esthetic's reasons, also getting the shaman.

Now for my question if it will fit in my case, I've already went through the stats,
Archon: 170,3/5mm
CM 690 Adv Max CPU cooler height: 177.0mm

It tells me it will fit just fine, but I'd appreciate some input on this anyway, just to be sure.

Good luck to this club!

I haven't bought yet the CPU. I was just searching for a configuration that i will buy next week or so. Thanks to you now i know that there are problems with sandy bridge, and I guess, I'll wait and see what happens before ordering.

Thanks for the info man.

It'll fit if you have no side fans.

No problem... That's what we're here for.

Just do a google search for intel CPU recall, you'll get tons of info on it.
Just to clarify, I don't believe the CPUs themselves are bad. There are no issues there. The issue is with the chipsets. Specifically, the SATAII ports have the potential to degrade over time, especially with increased frequency and heat. They expect 5 percent to gradually fail with normal usage over 3 years. Anandtech has a great article on it. Apparently Gigabyte was first to offer up their plan for the recall. If you've already got a P67 or H67 board, the best advice would be to move all of your SATA devices to the SATAIII ports as these are unaffected. Then, you can wait for the new mobos to come out before returning yours (those of you that have them). In all likelihood, you could keep going as normal and your chance of SATA failure by the time the corrected chipsets are out is pretty small, unless of course you're pushing the BCLOCK to the limits like a good OCN member . Looks like it will probably be end of March beginning of April at the earliest.

Add me, pic was taken when during the installation in K-62 case.



Just added GT AP-15 at the rear exhaust.

Nice picture.
I thought of installing my Archon in a north-south configuration.
have you tried both, or is that the first that you tried? If you've done both, which worked better?

Thanks, yep, tried both and that cpu is quad cores LGA775 which has 2 separate cpu dies, with that position that has been throughly tested at open rig, I got the best temperature since it has 6 heat pipes with each 3 pipes handing each cpu die which is better than six pipes sharing the heat load from the 2 silicon dies.
