Only higher end boards designed for multi-GPU configs have several x16 slots. Most like mine have only one x16 and the others below are usually x8. I believe that is what your friend was referring to. As long as it's x16 and PCI-E 3.0 (which it is) you're fine. My only concern would be the TY-150's width. That could be the only thing preventing the use of the top x16 slot.

Thing is, I dont mind it being high (I think my case's max cooler height is 185mm or, nor it hanging over my RAM since its LP. I do mind it being wide because of my pcie slot. Ah well, we'll see. Maybe Ill just take the gamble and go with the original SA, I dunno. Since I really do like it thumb.gif

So i will be fine with the vengeance lp? The Haf 932 think it ll fit the cooler. Is the arrow loud? Is it easy to mount it? (sorry for asking too many questions)

I had to take the risk with my board. At the time I had no information about compatibility and could afford to send it back if something didn't fit right. I say take the gamble! biggrin.gif

Your DIMMs are low enough. Case is definitely wide enough. The SA is considered pretty quiet even at 100% but that is something that will always be subjective to each individual user. In a case like yours I doubt you'll notice anything. Don't worry about the questions. That's what this thread is for! thumb.gif

The next step after you build would be to head over to the Positive Airflow Cooling link in my sig. That is if you're having temp/noise issues. thumb.gif

Hello guys, new user and owner of a silver arrow sb-e here. I just did some occt 1h linpack test with both stock cooler and sb-e, 2 cores and 4 cores unlocked with default vcore and speed and this is the results:

x2 stock
ambient 22°
core 48°
cputin 55,5°

x2 sb-e
ambient 22°
core 25,5°
cputin 37°

x4 stock
ambient 22°
core n/d
cputin 68°

x4 sb-e
ambient 21°
core n/d
cputin 46°

More 'or less i gained 20° less heat.
I've also done a fast test at 1,54v 4 cores unlocked just to see how much heat would produce and cputin stayed around low 60° so looking at other results i should be around low 50° core temp, but was just a fast test more likely i would get 2-3° more. Don't have much case air flow, one 120mm fan pulling bottom front (thinking of putting it higher at cpu level, but then again gpu likes to go crazy and the fan noise is horrible) and one 120mm pushing top rear. This is my first build and didn't think too much about case/fans setup.

Trying to reach 3,9-4,0 GHz unlocked stable now, if you don't mind coming to http://www.overclock.net/t/1250150/phenom-ii-b55-overclocking need advice before going full overnight tests, i think i've got the basics but i want to be sure. biggrin.gif

P.S. Those damn fan clips, curse them! I spent more time trying to secure the fans on the heat sink than everything else, i thought they were like the old silver arrow model and didn't had a clue how to use them.

Did you install the SB-E inside the case? You guys are making me want to get the SB-E just so I can see what all the fuss is about. biggrin.gif

If you'd like to be added to the club just post a pic of the SA in your rig. thumb.gif

Yes installed in the case, no problem with gpu slot and top panel case. Got really lucky with ram (slot 3-4), the 141 fan is resting on top of them with no space left. Problem is the side panel, i thought i had enough space but those fans are huge so they stick out, i can only use the first hooks near the front panel and let it semi-open near the rear kinda like this left panel > |\ < right panel.
If i can get my hands on a camera i'll post some photos.

Edit: I read the reply the wrong way so my answer was not correct. I did indeed install the cooler outside the case!

I always advise everyone that asks to install outside the case, lol. I've never had problems that way. thumb.gif Sorry to hear about the side panel issue. You could always upgrade to a wider case if you have the extra cash. If you can't take a cell phone pic or something let me know. wink.gif

I found the fan clips very easy to use. Of all the coolers I've owned they are the best. I've changed fans on my SB-E half a dozen times maybe more. I don't even have to move my case to change fans. I just power off, pull off the side panel and presto-changeo new fans

ps...installing any large heatsink with the board inside the case is not the best idea IMO. Pulling the board out may be extra work but it's so much easier to get the heatsink on properly. Just my 2cents
