I'm trying to decide between the Archon and the Silver Arrow, and some reviews show them being about a degree apart, in favor of the Silver Arrow. I think I read somewhere that the best orientation for the SA would be north-south, while the Archon would be east-west. That could make a difference, since my case is a RV-02, and the cooler would therefore have to be installed east-west, because of the vertical air flow of the case.

Opinions anyone?
There has been a lot of rv 02/ft 02 builds with SAs and Archons here and at hardforum. Performance is very close for both of them in this orientation. Pick based on archon's height and SA blocking ram slots with push fan.

I see you have the FT-02 with Ripjaws X and picked the SA. Why did you decide on that one?
Have you tried the fan in push over the Ripjaws X? I've seen some pictures showing it fits, but I'd like to know if it blocks the case cover (since your case is pretty much the same dimensions as mine) due to the first push fan having to be placed as high as possible.

I have the windowless version of FT02, which makes the side panel just thick enough to have issues with the Archon's extra height. I have tried mounting the fans as push/push on the SA, but the front fan sits too tall on top of the Ripjaws' heat spreaders and doesn't let the side panel close. Pull/pull works fine though, same performance and noise level.

If it wasn't for the side panel not closing with the Archon, would you get it over the SA or still go for the SA?
I'm having a hard time deciding.

Like I already said above, you won't really notice performance differences between the two. The Archon is a fresher design, try it out first. It will be slightly quieter than the SA if you don't buy the second fan for the Archon.

Just thought I'd chip on here:

Even if you do add a second Ty-140, the noise level should be on par with the SA. But it is quieter than the SA out of the box.

hey folks,

got a TR Archon this week to cool a 2600K. I got a installation question. I wasn't sure if the "backplate cap" that is mentioned in the install instructions is needed for my 1155 mainboard (Asus P8P67 EVO Rev.3). The text in the install instructions isn't that clear in my eyes. Does it mean the cap is ONLY needed for 775 plattforms? Right now I have it mounted, and my temps seem ok, but still I am not sure if I should remove the cap for even better results and mainly for not doing any damage to my board.

Does anyone here that ever try this type of fan oriented?
Because the usual fan orientation is one-way direction, I propose the use of dual fan into the heater and make the wind pressure to push the hot air to the sides.

Please give me comments. (not yet tried, if anybody tried it before, i want to see the performance, if nobody, then i'll try it.

Most people set up their whole rig to keep airflow moving in a single direction. That way no fan is directly fighting any other fan. I would suspect that the results would be absolutely horrendous, but if you're curious it's not that hard to turn a fan around.

Then I'll SS my one-way direction first to check the max temp, then I'll SS the sandwich-way direction today.

I hear this setting from my friend, and also i considering it because my case is quite hot when the gpu WORK hard... (around 70 C+, considering my airflow still sucks.)
