comes with only a TY-140? for ask other fan.
Bing.
because you've taken all the fans to K-62? the rear fan and the top fan
archon fits in k-62 smooth?

Sí, todos ellos encajan muy bien, no se preocupe, su todo sí, para todas sus preguntas en K62 + Archon! Usted debe ser feliz ahora! thumb.gif

just curious, I am thinking of switching from H70 to Archon..

May I know the following

1) does it fit a HAF-X without removing the side fan?
2) Does the performance degrade over time due to oxidation? I live in Singapore which is quite humid therefore prone to oxidation of the cooler.
3) What is the expected life span of the cooler?

1) Yes it does fit. It fits without any problem of any sort. It fits in my HAF 932, so there is no reason why it doesn't fit the HAF X. Read through this thread and you should find a link to flickr that has pictures of my sig rig. You should be able to see how it fits in with everything.

2) Performance degradation - The bottom is copper. However, because it is in direct contact with the cpu at all times, it shouldn't be affected by oxidation. As long as you don't have air pockets when installing the cooler, i wouldn't worry about it. The rest of the cooler is nickel plated, so it is much more resistant to oxidation than copper. If you are really worried about rusting though, clean out your computer every 2 months or so. Just be thorough on it - if you see some kind of scratch on the heatsink, cover it up immediately. How to cover it up - I don't know. Just cover it up. Otherwise the copper inside would come into direct contact with the air thereby increasing oxidation rate.

3) Life span - A really long, long time. As long as you take good care of it, it should - and probably will outlast most, if not all the components in your rig. The only thing you might have to replace down the road would be the fan on the cooler. Dust and whatnot might get into the bearings and cause decreased performance and noise. And because of the increased stress on the bearings, it might burn out a bit faster.

All in all though - go for it. The Archon is a beast.

Now we know it fits in a K62. Excellent news.
You have posted that in your spreadsheet in the OP. Even more excellent news. +rep

You are now an official member. Congrats

Also, how did you wire the two fans? I have another TY-140, but I can't wire that directly to the mobo cpu fan header. I want to have pwm control of both fans even if both of them run at the same speed.

I'm thinking maybe I should get a Y-splitter... but the problem is that they're impossible to find up here in Canada.

Thanks !

I'm using the Y cable that is bundled with Coolink SWIF2-120P fan, and its quite handy and useful when using multiple PWM fans at single mobo header, see the below pic.
2iad46g.jpg

The right one is utilizing all 4 pins and its connected to the push fan, it has the rpm/tacho line and imo its more important to monitor the push one, while the left one for the pull fan, no rpm reading though but still controlled by the same shared PWM signal.

Actually with some minor wiring and additional fan connector mod, I could separate the pull fan's rpm wire and connect it to other mobo fan header to monitor it's speed, but I think monitoring the push one only is enough.


Also like to share a minor detail about the anti vibration pad, the standard package came with 2 types, one is those thin white silicon strip, another one is the triangle black rubber pad, found out these two are not effective and quite difficult to secure it when fastening the fan on the clip, they tend to slide in or out which is a PITA to work with.

I tried another type of pad which is a thick fabric carpet like material that has one sticky surface, this one is a lot better since its thicker and looks like they dampen the vibration better like below pic. Now all pads are replaced with these white fabric pads.

Shinigamibob,

Suggesting you to add another columns at the spreadsheet with these items, since this beast is considered really wide and it should be interesting to see the trend once we have enough participants :
  • Heatsink orientation : North-South (like mine) or East-West
  • Orientation reason : Better performance (tested/verified both positions) or Others (this could be purely for the look or probably space constraint/limitation)

Thanks, I'll add the columns.

Yea, you were right, I only need to monitor the one fan tach, but I still need a y-splitter. I can't find a single canadian store that actually has one... a lot of y-power splitters, but not a single pwm splitter....

what are the chances of it working if I take both fans and splice the wires directly on? you know, cut off a bit of the shielding and solder the two on... obviously, i could leave out the 4-th wire

Its just the same, and watch out though, its not the 4th wire to leave out, but the 3rd (rpm) on the 2nd fan that needs to be left out.

The 4th wire is the PWM signal that is needed in controlling the speed at both fans.

Ah... ok. thanks for the heads up.

Also, I've just finished adding the two columns. BTW, why DO you have your cooler in a north/south orientation? I was just going to add that to the spreadsheet
