I'm tempted to believe that actually, but without actual performance numbers, it's hard to say. The increased cooling performance, by my numbers, puts it right around the Silver Arrow and D14. It might be slightly better or worse than those.

Now if I had a PH-TC14, I could test it out...
The Archon definitely deserves more love than it's getting though

From what I can shake out of the grape vine the Archon SB-E X2 is same as SB-E except for the base. The base is thicker like the old Arrow and Ultra had. Thermalright is putting the thicker copper base on the top coolers in the 2013 line.

As for performance the Archon SB-E X2 appears to perform as good as TC14PE.. which means it's as good as Silver Arrow SB-E.. but because it has wider fin spacing (quieter) it may not perform as well with high cfm fans like the TY-143. Meaning the Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme will probably out perform the Archon SB-E X2 by a few degrees. The fin area width and height are very close to Silver Arrow SB-E but at 53mm thick the Silver Arrow has about 20mm more with 2 35mm thick cores. Same number of pipes and none directly behind fan motor which may or may not make a difference.

I'm thinking of getting one just to find out if it's better or not. biggrin.gif

I ask because I watched the review in which Fanteks performs better than classic Archon with 2 degrees.

There's definitely an improvement of over 2 degrees with the SB-E X2, but I'm a bit dubious on whether the gap is really only 2 degrees. I was expecting at least 5C difference between the TC14 and the original Archon.

I should try to get my hands on a TC14PE - see what really is better.

The Silver Arrow does have more surface area than the TC14PE, so I can see where the 2C claims come from.

Does anyone know if the Antec P280 will support the Archon? The cooler height limit is listed at 170mm, and the Archon is listed at that height so I assume that it is close- I don't feel like gambling on a purchase wink.gif

The cooler fits in an Antec P180 (according to the case compatibility chart - found here), so assuming the P280 is larger, it should also fit.

Looking at the dimensions, the P180 is about 205mm wide, while the P280 is 230mm. So yes, you should be able to.

If you do get the cooler, please add to our database using this link.

Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking it would probably fit as well, although the P280 has more room behind the motherboard vs the P180 when considering their widths.

Curious here. Planning to use this cooler with a new system, but with the Elite 430 as the case. Any ideas if it'll fit or not? from the website, the width measures at 190mm. how high would the motherboard standoff be with the motherboard attached? before adding the 170mm cooler??

According to Cooler Masters official product page, it seems like the maximum CPU cooler height supported is 163mm. The Archon is 170mm - so unfortunately, it won't fit.

But hey, you're welcome to try and tell us if it worked biggrin.gif
