The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 168

post #1671 of 3848
Switched from a Noctua D-14 to the Silver Arrow mostly for the dual PWM fans but it turned out to be a real pain in the mad.gif

Install aggravations aside, one of my 140mm fans is defective and makes some sort of noise even just spinning the blade with your finger it's that bad. Do you think Thermalright will send me a replacement? I have no idea what their support is like...

I slapped on a Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM in the meantime.

Why did you switch your heatsink? You could have just bought TY-140 fans, or someother pwm fan. The silver arrow is like .5C better than the DH-D14. You might get better results with a new thermal compound tongue.gif
But yeah, thermalright is reputable, they should replace it.

Out of curiosity, are you selling your DH-D14?

even the thermal paste that comes with thermalright products (chill factor 3) is better than the one from noctua. so its a win win situation

The have to replace it if you just bought it and it is under warranty. lol

And actually maybe try letting the fan run a little will fix it b/c I had mine and one did a grinding noise and now it is quiet.

TR's support seems pretty on the ball. They answer my emails pretty quickly. smile.gif

Well the TY-140 I have in the top intake has a nasty loud motor noise I can't stand. mad.gif Not sure if the bearings inside are designed for horizontal mounting. I know others like ehume use them all the time this way so maybe this particular fan is being lame. I'm going to try one of my other TY-140's and see if the same thing happens.

The TY-150s are super quiet and move a ton of air out the back of my case. thumb.gif Can't comment on temp differences as it's in a different case from when I had the TY-140s on the SA.

There's quite a bit of air that blows out the back of my case. Positive flow is definitely worth it for me for a nice noise/performance ratio. I haven't used an exhaust fan in over a year and don't miss it at all. biggrin.gif The hum of the fans on your SA could be the result of the turbulence caused by different CFM's of each fan. Try using fans on the SA and rear exhaust that are all about the same CFM rating and see if that helps. Double check how the fans on the SA are mounted and make sure they are level and secure. thumb.gif

Indeed try this out as well. See the Nibbler Club link in my sig for an extremely handy, inexpensive tool to do this. More fans doesn't always mean better performance. biggrin.gif

The only 140mm PWM fans that are quiet enough for me are the TY-140 (rare in Canada) and D-14 2011SE fans (which aren't sold anywhere). I did try to mount the TY-140 fans to the D-14 but it would have required some slight modding I figured it would be easier to just swap the entire thing as I was buying a cooler for my sisters gaming PC anyway so she can have the D-14.

Actually I kept using the NT-H1 compound as I found it has done well. The last time I switched to Arctic Silver 5 I regretted it. However, I'll be assembling the D-14 on another PC and will use the Chill factor paste on it just to see how it works but even if it's better I'm not gonna go through the trouble of removing the SA cooler to reapply that wrench part was infuriating tongue.gif

Chill Factor III is great stuff. I've stuck with it for awhile now and very pleased with temps. While I don't have an Intel chip I do agree that installing the SA can be a pita at times...even with the AMD hardware. tongue.gif

I've installed on AMD and intel. I don't have big hands or anything, but I thought they were very simple to install. I could see where it'd be annoying if you had larger size hands though. Thermalright's mounting kits are far better than cooler master's anyway~

I'm fairly sure that your 120mm fan on the back grill is more blocking the air than helping to remove it at certain loads. SA can manage to push air out itself if you just give it some space tongue.gif
