The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 233

post #2321 of 3848
Just got my SA and it was squashed frown.gif. One of the towers was pushed in all the way almost touching the other. Doesn't look like it was shipping damage as the box was in good shape. Seems like the seller flattened it to fit it in all things, an H100 box rolleyes.gif.

I'm checking for serious damage. The towers are off. One of them is more towards one side. I'm trying to gingerly bend it back. Its also completely dusty. I contacted the seller as this sucks mad.gif

Unlucky dude... Same thing happened to me the other week:

The box was completely undamaged too. The only difference is mine was brand new.
Hope nobody minds pics of a non Silver Arrow in here smile.gif

Good luck with getting it sorted out thumb.gif

Wow! Sorry to hear that mate. A brand new one! That sucks big time frown.gif. I was able to bend mine back almost level and a bit of elbow grease to clean it up a bit. I have it in and its uber quiet compared to the Hyper 212+.

The place I bought it has awesome RMA & customer service. I had a replacement two days later thumb.gif

You're a far, far braver man than I am mate biggrin.gif I was way too scared to even think about trying to bend it back redface.gif
Glad you got it working nicely, I know how it feels when you're all excited like a kid at christmas and then it sinks in that all ain't right...

PS, love the irony of the H100 box biggrin.gif

Seller didn't seem too concerned but he offered to refund me. Its working fine so I'm going to keep at especially for the deal i got for it biggrin.gif. My goodness, this so much better than the 212+. Temps are about 15-20c less and there's not noise!

Is that the DeepCool Assassin?

212+ is so over-rated. Night and day difference from real coolers. I got 10c better temps coming from Noctua NH-U12P SE and it's not a bad cooler. wink.gif
