Nice pictures everyone! I finally got the silver arrow SB-E Extreme installed on this build I am creating, ^_^. Doyll are those fans better than the Phanteks fans? how is the phanteks compared to the SA SB_E?

TY-143 is PWM; 700-2500rpm; 130cfm. PH-F140TS is not PWM; only 1200rpm; 78.1cfm. At same rpm both are about same loudness. TY-143 has a motor hum you can hear above 1200rpm but just barely... and of course as it winds up above 1200 it get progressively louder.

Right now with fans full speed on stock i7 920 I have 8c delta. Running encode with Handbrake in realtime cpu 95-100% is 25c delta. If I drop fans too an idle delta rises to 38c. Ambient is 26c so a total temp of 64c @ 95-100% CPU. These big coolers are better passive than stock coolers are full speed wink.gif

Before this change I was running TY-140 fans and getting same results up to 1300rpm. I need to overclock to get cpu hot enough to use cooler

I haven't ran SB-E so can't say which is better. tw33k tested them and stock Silver Arrow SB-E was 3.3c cooler. Running stock middle fan with a UK-3000 on the front Phanteks was 1.2c better.

I need to overclock to get enough heat to test what cooler and fans are capable of. I had OC @ 3.5GHz before changing motherboard. Same cooler and TY-140 fans. With fans idling CPU maxed at 43c delta.

I need that extra bit of space so the NH-D14, Assassin (K2), Ph-TC14PE, & the SB-E were out of the question. I even looked at the BeQuiet Black Rock 2 Pro and I was gonna get one from a local guy but he never responded. I found this SA on ebay and nabbed it for $50. Only thing was that it was dusty (typical) and the towers were bent mad.gif. Everything is fine and dandy and my 560 448s are nice and cool. I should have kept my first SA but I didn't have my tri sli setup going yet. I have the stock xigmatek 140mm fan on the rear for exhaust.

It takes less room than a K2 or D14?

Its slight narrow (~147mm) and it doesn't have the fan clips sticking out to clear my top gpu. There's about 5mm of space between the towers and the top gpu's pcb. I pushed the fans down a bit so they barely kiss the top gpu.

Just figured out all the specs on dual tower coolers

K2 is cheaper than D14

Cooler size comparison
K2 . = . 140x128x158mm 146x154x160mm w/fans (WxDxH looking from front of case)
D14 = . 140x130x160mm 140x158x160mm w/fans
TC14 = 140x134x160mm 140x159x171mm w/fans
SB-E. = 155x105x164mm 170x130x170mm w/fans
Extreme 155x105x164mm 155x130x165mm w/fans Reason it's smaller is 140mm fan vs 150mm fan.

K2, D14 & TC14 are about same except for TC14 140mm fans & 31mm RAM clearance stack up to 171mm (my R2 is 165mm clearance and TC14 fits)

SB-E is widest by 15mm. Even wider with TY-150 fan = 170.

Extreme with TY-143 fans is still 155mm

Nice work doyll.

Hmm, probably could've squeezed the Extreme in. Would've been real close though, and no front 140mm fan.
Ah well, I'm happy with ze German teknology thumb.gif
