The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 220

post #2191 of 3848
Hey, I just joined to ask these questions because it's been bothering me for awhile and I can't find an answer anywhere.

1. How would a Silver Arrow fit in an Azza Hurrican 2000 case? Newegg says its 10" wide, but I'm not sure if that's including the fan housing on the side or not.

2. Is there anywhere to buy the original, non SB-E version of the Silver Arrow? I much prefer the blue fans (fits the black and blue theme of my build better), and I think they might perform better (but I'm not sure).

So far, I'm planning to place my psu on the top with the fan point up. This will block of the top rear and exactly above the SA. It looks like I can fit a 230/200mm fan on top and just in front of the cooler (like ehume's guide).

So it looks like Im going to need a couple of 230/200mm fans. I might end up installing two behind the front drive bays to feed air to the main cavity of the case. Looking for opinions on 230/200mm fans:

I'm wondering if these are any good?

1)...

2) I got mine preowned on ebay. I didn't really want drop a lot of money on the SB-e one and I don't like the color of the fans too. I've seen the fans available for sale but not the original SA. Keep searching I'm sure you can find one.

edit: found some new ones but I'm suspecting they're sb-e and were not updated.

Just got my SA but it didn't have the wrench. Can it be tighten by hand or another tool?

Its dusty and I'm off to Fry's to buy some compressed air and look at the CM and Nzxt 200mm fans. Sorry for the double post but traffic was lite this weekend tongue.gif


edit: picked up a couple of CM "Mega Flow" 200mm fans. Their air flow is rated at 110cfm @700rpm, yet they blow quite a bit less air compared to the stock Xigmatek fan (74 cfm @ 700rpm). Ugh, typical Cooler Master inflation of specs. I'm going to return them and try the NZXT 200mm fan

1. More than likely it includes the fan housing portion of the side panel. The Corsair 600T has similar specs with a similar side panel and the SA fits that case just fine. As long as those fans are not 30mm you'll probably be ok.

2. Performance of all TR's TY series fans will always ultimately depend on your case airflow and ambient temp and not just max CFM/RPM specs. I'm not sure if the SB-E is going to replace the SA or not. I've email TR but they have yet to respond. mad.gif

Megaflows are ok. NZXT 200mm fans have gotten mixed reviews in the 650D thread. I went with Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm and love it. I'd definitely give it a shot. What I really wish would happen is a TR or Phanteks 200mm fan! biggrin.gif If you have a wrench set see if any of those will fit the SA bolt or take it to the hardware store and match it up that way...probably metric?

I returned the CM megaflows. They're a lot weaker than my stock xigmatek. I got some funds in amazon payments so I have a few selections.

Xigmatek CLF-F2004 - matches my stock one, only downside is it has the mounting on one side (rear):

Also, as you can see from the pics, I got three fans. Should i mount the third to the SA or on the cases rear fan mount?

I'd remove the rear grill whether you use a fan there or not. You gain a huge increase in your exhaust airflow with less noise. thumb.gif Also try both 2 and 3 fan configs on the the SA and see how temps compare. For me 2 was enough with the rear grill removed and open without a fan.

I would like to remove the rear grill but I want to keep hacks to nill for now. I need to order some fan clips an pads.

I'm going to mount the stock 230mm on top towards the front. Any suggestions for intake front intake fans. My case came with two hdd cages that can fit 120s or 140s. I'm thinking of adding three 140s for intake.

edit: forgot to share; I didn't like the rear backplate/bracket so I kept my EK "true lga1155" backplate and I used some 3/8" 6-32 screws to grab the mounting posts. Also, one of the clips that holds the TR backplate's screws was broken so I left it out all together. Came out pretty good, looks clean and flushed, and less bulky in the rear.

Yeah, its much easier with the "true backplate" and some spare screws.

edit: sold my MIVE really quick. Splurged on a new mb for a bigger gpu upgrade path. Need hp for Eyefinity biggrin.gif. I'm hoping I have no clearance issues with the new mb an the new gpu upgrade redface.gif
