I see that you have replace the TY-140 fan with Gentle Typhoons. Did you notice any considerable amount of temperature drop. The reason I'm asking is that I have the Silver Arrow and I also have the GT- AP15 but I haven't installed yet due to the fact that I'm still waiting on my tech station to arrive. Which setup will yield the best result?

If you're not sure about what ram you want I would do that research prior to getting the SA. See if there's a thread for your m/b or ask around in AMD or Intel memory forums. I wouldn't go for looks here as the SA will cover most of them anyway. biggrin.gif

They ended up being about maybe 1c cooler at most than with the TY-140's.

How are they noise-wise compared to the TY-140's?

They sound roughly the same to me.

I'm sure the AP-15's are a tiny bit louder, but not enough that I could tell without something like a decibel meter to measure the difference.

I have a few issues with this cooler. For one, how can I make sure it isn't on too tight? I tightened the pressure knob about two quarter-turns with the little wrench when I installed it. Second, my motherboard isn't great with this cooler. I only have one cpu fan header on my MSI Big Bang Xpower, and the EPS +12v 8-pin port is RIGHT where I need to put my second ty-140 for the Silver Arrow. Bearing that in mind, what is my best option for a fan setup? Third, I use G.Skill Ripjaws with the red heatsink that has those taller ridges. Don't ask me why I didn't think of this before buying my ram, but will a full-size fan fit on the right side of my Silver Arrow with the Ripjaws? Right now I have only a single fan in the center of my silver arrow that's pushing air toward the rear of my HAF 932. I really want to optimize and improve my cpu cooling setup. Thank you.

So which mb are you going to use this heatsink with?

First of all, you need a PWM splitter. A high-quality PWM Y-adapter for $3, including shipping ("free shipping") is here.

Next, you can buy generic low-profile heatsinks for your RAM.

Finally, if you use your Gigabyte mb make sure you have it set for PWM control of fan speed. Go into BIOS, then the PC Health screen. Select the Enable Smartfan, then set Smartfan mode to PWM (alone of mb manufacturers, Gigabyte gives you the choice between PWM and Voltage control of fans).
