The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 255

post #2541 of 3860
Thought i'd share some of my sb-e bling/case mod work i've been doing recently. The goal was to R4ify the fractal design R3 as much as possible. Will probably remove the rear exhaust fan when i get a chance to compare with/without temps. Just need some longer sata cables and it pretty much done. Yay!
Enjoy :-)

Thanks for your comment, doyll,

Can you more specific point out where you can get the fans in Taiwan with cheaper price than us? confused.gif

As I know that the freight cost might put another $20 on the top of your bill if you only order 2 fans.

Although, we still appreciate your feedback smile.gif

Nice to see that Thermalright is back in Australia - I used a True 120 for my first build a number of years ago and it was excellent. But it's unfortunate that the Silver Arrow is so expensive here. I'm tossing around which cooler to get for my new build and the Silver Arrow is meant to be great, but I just can't justify paying an extra $20 - $30 above the price of a Noctua D14 for very similar performance frown.gif

Sure do, well kinda.... :-)

Temps pretty much reflect the crappy pwm control on my board. The cpu fan header has a min of 1100rpm with these fans but the system header drops them to 750rpm.
I am yet to compare them fairly as the rpm on the ty's started at 600rpm on the cpu header. My pwm also takes a long time to respond for some reason. Cpu can hit 80c+ as pwm is still ramping up then cpu drops back to mid 70's. Kind of annoyed at this lame pwm control on this board. The system header doesnt even register fan rpm in speedfan or anything. Does in bios after a 5 or so second delay...

But apart from that, very happy with how it all turned out. Cheers guys :-)

Very nice looking rig.
I think that rear exhaust fan is useless...you could try moving that to the bottom as a bottom intake for the gpu or perhaps place it as a side exhaust, or even a 5.25" bay intake. (hdd's might benefit from that)

The True Spirit 140 is absolutely aweseome for 45$, believe me.

(that's one good test by xbitlabs as a reference)

If you consider the the three importnant aspects like prize, the performance and generated noise, then it's probably THE best cooler if you ask me.

Hmm, I was thinking about that. True Spirit 140 + a second TY140 fan would be about $20 cheaper than the D14. Do you think it would perform comparably? I'll be getting a 3770K and want to overclock to around 4.5 GHz, maybe more. I thought the D14 was generally regarded as being on another level compared with cheaper coolers like the True Spirit, although that review seems to suggest they're similar.

I've also already got a few 120mm Gentle Typhoons -- not sure if they'd do better than the TY140 fans.
post #2550 of 3860
Your best bet is GT as push fan and ty140 as pull fan, TS140 is one of the best, and can perform pretty much like a stock d14 with that config. Really good acoustic signature too!
Go for it biggrin.gif
