Really? They both consistently come within ~1-2c of each other. They are closer to being equal than anything. biggrin.gif

*climbs up on soap box*
Please don't make up new names/abbreviation for coolers. There no such thing as a TR SB-E Extreme. rolleyes.gif Not even Google can find it. rolleyes.gif I assume TR is Thermalright, but the SB-E is not a cooler, it's a designation within a cooler line.. and there are several different coolers with SB-E designation.. Archon, Archon SB-E & Archon SB-E X2. Silver Arrow, Silver Arrow SB-E, Silver Arrow SB-E SE(TY-145 fans) http://www.thermalright.de/CPU+Kuehler/artikel/Thermalright+Silver+Arrow+SB-E+SE.html & Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme(TY-143 fans). We can abbreviate Silver Arrow SB-E as SA SB-E (Google knows that), Archon is not too long a name to write, True Spirit 120 / 140 is often TS 120 / 140(although Google does not know without "cooler" added). Anybody who knows anything about coolers knows who makes Silver Arrow or Archon or NH-D14 or TC14PE or Assassin(Google needs "cooler"), or K2(Google needs "cooler"), or HE01.
*Gets down off of soapbox*

In a real honest and truly even testing I doubt you would have 3c difference between to top 7-9 coolers. Probably only 1-2c at most. That's using same fans, actually monitoring the intake air temp and not "ambient" temp of room. What review have you seen where the "ambient" temp is actually measured 5-10cm in front of intake fan? That's the air temp cooling is using, not somewhere else in room... or even on the bench. I've found in open bench tests the actual intake temp of tower coolers is fairly stable. 1-3c variance. Down flow coolers are all over the place.. 7-12c variance. And if cooler intake temp is 1-3c hotter the results will be the same 1-3c hotter.

In case testing will have a much higher intake air temp variance because it's easier for hot exhaust air to get mixed into intake air... because very few testers have optimized airflow in their test cases.

If you say so, i may as well just get the regular thermalright SB_E/extreme then. come to think about it.

It's the best out of the box out there in my opinion. Not because it's a better cooler but because of it's TY-143 fans. Here in the UK it is also cheaper than most of the other so an even better deal.

Hey Doyll, got my pwm splitter today...




It's technically good for up to 7a, so it should be able to run my 3.3a fans without melting. Maybe the start up voltage might kill it, not sure. :/
post #3016 of 3863
The proper way to spec is constant load. Burst load at startup only lasts a few seconds so shouldn't be a problem. If heat does buildup during startup it will most likely be at the connectors.
post #3017 of 3863
How do you like my crappy cell pics? The one with the connectors came out better...xD
I'll fire them up tonight using my crappy 945g p4 rig... (yeah, it has an SA on it lol)

I'm not just saying that. There have been too many comparisons on OCN and elsewhere that put all the top air coolers within a few degrees of each other. So just pick your favorite and be happy or at least be open to trying out others for the sake of experimentation. biggrin.gifthumb.gifcheers.gif

Ok, tested my dual 5300rpm pwm fans using the Gelid splitter...It works nicely, thing is built kinda cheaply but it's still solid and looks nice biggrin.gif
Only downside is I figured out one of my fans is MUCH quieter than the other. Perhaps the bearing is defective or something else is causing the extra noise... frown.gif
At minimum pwm duty cycle my Nidec Beta-v 5300rpm is almost inaudible, but as soon as it ramps up it begins to whine a bit.

Nice PWM-Y cable ivanlabrie thumb.gif
I think I'm gonna check it at my place. Btw is it 4pin PWM? or 3?
