Sorry guys i read solsamurai reply the wrong way, yes i dismantled the mother board and mounted the sb-e with no problems outside the case so i could also clean the mb good. This is the first time i mounted a cooler (except the stock one) so i was really getting confused about the fan clips and i was scared about bending the heat sink and the clips but when i figured it out i felt like an idiot it's really not that hard.
I'll post pictures soon.

You're not an idiot. Now that you've done it once, it'll get easier. The first time I installed a large heatsink was a nightmare. Took me ages to work out how to do it properly

Great topic, thanks for all the feedback people!

Since the weather is getting hotter, my stock CPU fan is giving me around 4K RPM (I hate the noise). So I thought "Why not change the fan?" and of course decided to go for the best! (Plus, we have above 45 C degrees at summer here, so it's logical...)

But I have some questions to ask to you guys! Here they are;

1- I have a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 board that has a PCI-EX1 slot closer to the CPU, and my Asus Essence STX sits in that slot. So,can anyone confirm that Silver Arrow won't touch my sound card ? Here's the pic of the board;

512

2- Using one of these Corsair Vengeance 4GB rams on my board (High Profile). Although it's in the furthest slot to CPU, would it be any problem mounting the cooler? Also considering getting a second 4GB ram, so if I buy a Low Profile Vengeance, I can use it with my High Profile one with no problems yea?

3- It might sound silly thing to ask but, the board has only one CPU Fan connector. So I should buy a fan controller to be able to make dual fan work?

Thanks, a lot!

I'm getting conflicting reports whether this fill fit on Asus GENE boards. Anyone can help confirm this?
post #2006 of 3854
Planning to add a third fan to the silver arrow, got the TY-140 for 14 bucks shipped.
But the rubber padding for anti-vibration was not included with the fan frown.gif (I guess i am asking too much).
Anyhow, where can i buy it?? Need four to mount the third fan.

Can i ask you if you saw any difference with/without the anti-vibration pad? I did not install them, still thinking if i should.

1. It will be a close fit. You're board is similar to mine with the position of the top PCI-e x1 slot. I'll take a look at mine when I get home from work later this evening.
2. It's generally recommended to use matching pairs of RAM on all boards. You may be able to run your system stable with mismatching DIMMs but it's not a guarantee. I recommend purchasing a 8GB (4GB x2) set of the low profile vengeance.
3. Not a silly question. You can purchase a PWM splitter like this to connect both fans to your motherboards CPU_FAN header. If you buy the SB-E version of the SA it comes with a PWM splitter.

The mATX versions have a problem with the top PCI-e slot getting blocked by the SA/SB-E and it's fans. That's all I know. frown.gif

You have to buy the pad kit separate. TR fans ship with clips only.

Doesn't seem to make much difference. I prefer to use them as the fans feel more solidly mounted to the SA.

Thanks! I appreciate the kind words. Let's not forget all the hard work you've put into it as well. cheers.gif

It helps that I can check OCN throughout the day at work. wink.gif
