Here's another review:
http://www.hardwaremax.net/reviews/kuehler/518-test-alpenfoehn-himalaya.html?showall=0&start=7

If you dont mind the aesthetic aspect of using two different fans on there, then i'd do what ivanlabrie suggested to save a bit of money. The TS140 does perform really well with 140mm fans though.
With Push only it will be a bit quieter though, so you just might try that out too depending on your preferences regarding the noise level.

A3770k @4,5 GHz+ can get pretty damn hot though, for any air cooler, so dont expect too much.

Thanks. The problem for me is that there are so many conflicting reviews. The Phanteks (which I can't seem to find in Aus) and Silver Arrow seem to be at the top pretty consistently, but after that it's not so clear. The D14 seems to usually do pretty well, but some reviews put it below much cheaper coolers (cheaper in Aus at least), like the True Spirit 140, NZXT Havik and Prolimatech Genesis and even the Noctua C14. Other reviews put it fairly significantly above those coolers.

Obviously I don't want to spend money unnecessarily, but I don't want to get the 3770K above about 75 degrees C at most and I would like to get it up around 4.5 since I don't plan to upgrade my CPU again for a couple of years. So I'm not really sure what to do!

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
$20 on top for post from Taiwan really has nothing to do with your $21.95 and $22.95 prices on TY-140/141 fans.

I can get TY-141 fans from United Kingdom for $8.35 to $15.58 each.

American prices for TY-140 are $13-18.00 range. US and AU dollars are only a couple cents different., so yes you are very proud. wink.gif

The cost of posting from USA, UK or Taiwan is really irrelevant. You are buying for similar prices to other retailers around the world and their prices are much cheaper than yours.

I could provide links all day long but why? A quick google will give anyone who bothers to look the prices of products most anywhere in the world. thumb.gif

I know it's supply and demand.

You can use 120mm fans in the push, ty140 in the middle. That yields good results and would solve your problem.

Did some proper digging and the annoying noise seems to come from my HDD/ODD drives... that is bad. That's like a sound I've heard from really old drives before. Guess I'll have to change my HDD's and finally add that SSD.
Sigh... so much trouble with my lovely pc.

Quick and simple.biggrin.gif
Don't worry about the load vs idle core temp variance

Is this the same splitter http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19_1344&products_id=17923 that you have Doyll?

If it isn't it's a damn good imitation. ;thumb.gif


Edit: No, it's not the same splitter. Mine is in my case. biggrin.gif But yes, that is the one I was talking about. wink.gif

4.5ghz and less than 75c for Ivy is unrealistic...unless you get VERY lucky with your chip's required voltage for that oc.
I'm at 4.7ghz @ 1.37v and my max temp under prime95 is 91c. For 4.5ghz I needed 1.255v and that made my max temp at 22c ambient be 79c or so.
There's no problem going up to 90-95c during prime95, while gaming at my fastest stable oc I never go past 60c if that comforts you, and while folding on 4 threads and gaming on the other 4 threads the max is 85c.

Oh, too bad...had that happen to me and the drive was about to go bad.
Get one of those discounted 240gb ssd's from techbargains.com wink.gif

Dear Doyll,

$8.35 to $15.58 for TY-141, is that pound or AUD? And don't forget the price in U.S is GST exclusive.rolleyes.gif

If you buy a TY-141 from U.K costs you $10, and another $20 for shipping fee(UK to Australia), I don't see any advantage to buying that in overseas, not mentioned you need to wait longer to get the product.confusedsmiley.png

But anyway, thanks for your comments and we really appreciate it.

Thanks for supporting thermalright.thumb.gif

Hi Charles,

You are right as in one fan is not the best option if ordering from overseas. But when its a few it become far cheaper.
Anyway, i am very happy to have a thermalright seller in Australia, but i do think your prices could be a little more competitive. One that stood out most for me was the price of the silver arrow sb-e. Most places in the world have it priced very similarly to the noctua d-14.
Aussie stores such as pccasegear, umart etc manage to sell the d-14 for around $85aud here so i would have hoped for the silver arrow sb-e to be no more than $90-95.

Like i said i am happy for you guys to be here but i think if you want people to choose your coolers over other options prices need to be a little more competitive. Admittedly i have only compared the silver arrow though....
I also think the fans could maybe be slightly cheaper too to better compete with other options. Of the Aussie stores i use your ty-141 would be 2nd most expensive in the 140mm range only beaten by noctua. I love these ty fans as i have used them but to those that haven't it may make it a tough choice.
From all the national and international fan pricing i have been doing lately i think if you could somehow get the ty-150 closer to the price of the ty-141 and the ty-141 to $20-21 you would have it about right. Especially if you plan to add a postage charge in future.

Good luck with the store! I will def be keeping an eye out to see if you get the ty-143 fans too.
:-D

I buy most stuff from the US, via USPS Priority mail...mid flat rate boxes are 48usd and can fit plenty of stuff.
Prices here are even worse than in Au. thumb.gif

Gonna try some different fan configs today and post back with results! biggrin.gif
