10c is an "exaggeration" of my "estimation." Good example of how rumors change what really happened. biggrin.gif

Actually I came out with the value 10 basing to previous notes that the old SA seems to do better with TY 143s at max.. Plus your stated 8 degrees diff from standard SA SB-E variant..

But yeah, 10 might be as good as rumors can tell. 😀

But I might still get more than 10 degrees improvement as my preliminary lap, shaved me a good 5-8 degrees at same settings already... 😀 😁

Like AlphaC said.
Silver Arrow SB-E and Silver Arrow IB-E have almost same performance.

The pipes, base, fin packs are all pretty much the same. Pipes are offset and the fin packs are squared but that's about it. Reviews of both SS SB-E and SS IB-E are very similar

Decided to lap my 8320 and my Silver Arrow.

And was greeted by these.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

High edges for the CPU

And higher edges + center contour along the heatpipes.

Can only hope for better it seems.

I thought lapping gave little change in temperature.

I am liking the IB-E, the off set cooler is one way to get round the problems of the SB-E and PCI-e slots

Lapping is not a thing for Intel chips. Delidding was and still is..

Delidding is a big no for AMD FXs. Lapping is.

Get the point?

Depending on situation, lapping will in essence improve temps by a few to several degrees.

In my prelim lap, shaved off a handful degrees due to the my CPU having high edges and my SA also having high edges along the heatpipes..

It was IIRC designed to be slightly convex for some reason. Unfortunately, my CPU isn't concave to match.

As similar as Silver Arrow SB-E and Silver Arrow IB-E there is no reason to than changing from standard to high cfm fans will give very similar performance on each cooler... and that increase will be 4-8c. thumb.gif

You point is that the gains from lapping are low (the best I have seen was 5°C), and if you need the extra few degrees then you should lower your OC, sort out the fans in your case and/or get better cooling.

I agree. thumb.gif
  • Case cooling and airflow to / from components is the most neglected part of most builds.
  • It is probably the most important part of a system with top of the line CPU & GPU coolers so they can do their best job.
  • A good cooling setup can easily lower CPU and GPU temps by 5c and 10c is not uncommon.
  • Add automatic case fan speed control based on CPU and GPU temps and we end up with a very cool and quiet system.
You might find the links in my sig helpful.

Could you recommend me a good fan controller that can support 4-5 fans?

I haven't used anything but PWM for so long I have no idea what fan controllers are good. Sorry. redface.gif
