Not to mention it would make it impossible to mount the diagonal 120mm intake fan that blows on the VRMs / RAM. Basically, it would only be a couple °C better than a VenX for the CPU, but at the detriment of almost everything else in my build! LOL. I'll go with the VenX.
...Unless someone wants to recommend a better single-tower cooler than the VenX.

The BeQuiet Dark Rock 2 is slightly smaller then then the highend coolers and compares very nicely to them.

The DR2 looks beautiful but my research suggested it doesn't compare well thermally (lots of inconsistent results, but it may be that the base / mounting is problematic). Thanks for the suggestion though.

I don't want to go too off-topic. Maybe I'll make my own topic on coolers for my build. Or you can just PM me if you want to continue the conversation.

Thanks,

Please start a top single tower vs twin tower thread. Would be very interesting.

Would it? Seems pretty clear-cut to me that Phanteks / Silver Arrow / NH-D14 are consistently, across all reviews, the top three air coolers ATM. After which the Archon / Megahalems / VenX / TRUE etc. follow close behind. Never saw anything to suggest that double-tower isn't better when it fits (and when you can afford it). But you're welcome to start such a thread yourself. thumb.gif

In any case I've read so many reviews on coolers in the past couple months, I have a very strong sense of which coolers consistently place where for noise vs ∆T, and the VenX wins out for me if I'm not going with a double tower.

I not saying single tower is as good as double tower..... but there are a few single towers that are not far from the top double towers in performance.

and you need to add Alpenfohn K2 / Deepcool Assassin to your top cooler list.... biggrin.gif

I saying it would be nice to see how all of the top coolers perform, both single towers and double towers. thumb.gif

And as this is Silver Arrow thread a new thread seems the appropriate way to go. thumb.gif

NZXT Havik 140 got some very good reviews around the place too. Would have been on my top 5 single towers if the doubles didn't fit.

Alright guys I'm helping a friend build his first gaming PC tomorrow. It will be the first time I install the SA on an Intel m/b and the first time installing the SB-E. biggrin.gif I would greatly appreciate your input on mounting to the m/b only. With everything else I'm fine. Thanks doods! thumb.gif

Also you may start to see a new individual start posting in this thread who has been following us for quite a while. biggrin.gif

Nice thing about LGA2011 is that the retention back plate is already installed. Just need the LGa2011 kit:
