160mmx140mmx26.5mm

But the Archon is thin enough that is shouldn't impact RAM clearance

I believe he meant on the new TY-150 fan. The dimensions on that one increases to 150mm obviously. The Thermalright webdesigner probably did a copy/paste of the "old" Archon page and forgot to update the fan dimensions.

So yeah that'll probably be an issue for the Silver Arrow, if the TY-150 is used there. However, the TY-150 fan is really made for the Archon, because it's wider than the SA.

I found where I read about the Archon issue on the 1155 boards btw:

I would have expected the same thing, but the P67 motherboards aren't laid out like the 1366 and 1156 boards. It appears the RAM slots are closer to the socket. I've been talking with someone who has an ASUS P8P67 and the Archon. He's pretty clear that the fan on the Archon overhangs the first RAM slot and I had him measure the distance from the PCB to the bottom edge of the fan in its default location: He got 37mm with 2-3mm of play in vertical placement of the fan. Ripjaws-X are 40mm high.

It's not guesswork. It's based on real world measurements from people who are physically holding the items in question.

The Archon was designed for tall heat spreaders in 1366 and 1156 motherboards. 1155 motherboards are slightly different.

Yup, I meant the TY-150 on a SA. So I guess that would be a problem then.

Swift reply from Thermalright support.

Quote:
For most Asus 1155 boards, the RAM slots come extremely close to the CPU keep out zone. The TY-140 does not actually hang over the 1st ram slot, but the fan clips extend a bit over it. Which is why we would suggest you to skip the first slot if possible. Another suggestion would be to put the TY-140 on the backside of the cooler for a pull configuration. As the Archon is quite slim on the sides, it does not take a strong air flow for the air to clear the whole cooler. Therefore the impact would be minimal compared to thicker coolers.
I wrote him before I knew of the Rev.A with the TY-150, so I replied asking about the distance between the fan clip on the TY-150 and the motherboard.

It's a bit hard to tell from the picture on their site but as long as the fan itself doesn't extend over the first RAM slot, it looks like the TY-150 fan clip is up high enough for the 26.25mm low profile ram. If not, there's always modding.

And a new reply:

The TY-150 uses the same fanclip as the TY-140. Therefore the distance of the clips to the Motherboard is the same as well.
So that's good news for me at least.

But still the TY-150 will interfere with the RAM modules in the second slot?

Well, we were only talking about the Archon, so don't know how it fits in the Silver Arrow, sorry. You could email them I guess.
post #509 of 640
Why does the archon gets so bad results at Vortez, for me its equal or better than my D14
