The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 187

post #1861 of 3848
One question, if I buy the silver arrow for my build, will I need anything extra? Such as fan or something?
I'm planning on buying from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/THERMALRIGHT-SILVER-ARROW-DUAL14CM-HEATSINK/dp/B003XRAKLQ

Thank! I've decided on the silver arrow instead of the D14

Everything you need comes with the heatsink.

I have to say, these Air Penetrators are great heatsink fans. I'm going to do some experimenting when I've finished testing the heatsinks.

Just thought I'd say that we really appreicate the testing your doing. thumb.gif


Forgot to ask, were you able to mount the AP 121's with the fan clips that came with the SA or did you have to use something else?

Alright thanks! Do you recommend getting a thermal paste like the MX4 or use the paste that comes with it?

The stuff that comes with it is pretty decent. It is a small tube thought. You'll maybe get 2 or 3 applications out of it.

Thanks mate.Yeah...the clips work with AP-121s

I've run into a problem and I think it's with the Antec Formula 7. It's really thick...thicker than what I'm used to. I used my normal method, a small dot in the centre of the CPU but noticed it hadn't spread very well so I re-applied it putting a small line part way across the middle. Got good results with the SB-E. Now I'm testing the SA and it's like 10c hotter than the SB-E. I doubt that's right. I thought I applied the paste the same way but maybe not. It's getting late here now so I'll pull the SA off in the morning and re-apply the paste.

What I normally do for thick thermal paste is put a hand towel in really hot water, ring it out, then wrap the tube of thermal paste in the hand towel for a few mins. It usually work for the uber thick stuff like IC Diamond.

Don't underestimate Chill Factor III. thumb.gif Just because everyone else says MX4 is amazing doesn't mean you'll have horrible temps with CFIII. rolleyes.gif I ran out and can't find it anywhere...that's the only reason I'm looking into other TIM brands.
