I'm running a Silver arrow with a single san ace 1011 in between the two coolers...let me tell you!!! on stock clocks and voltage i idle at room temp, and can get this thing past 38c no matter what kind of stress test is do. I'm ready to OC now baby!!
Since last night, I've looked at quite a few reviews for the Silver Arrow and Noctua D-14. If I do go back to air in the near future, I'm leaning toward the Noctua after watching the OC3D review. Now granted, he only ran into issues with the SA when OC'ing at extreme voltages, otherwise it beat the D-14 at the lower voltages, i.e. <1.45V.

For some reason, from time to time, my EK full cover block for the Classified gets a bubble in it and it sounds very disturbing. I closely monitor the temps of the system and nothing seems out of the ordinary, it's just a little unnerving when hearing odd noises come from the case. I'm thinking it's probably because I have a Raven case and the motherboard is mounted vertically and the block probably wasn't designed to be in that orientation...at least that's what I tell myself to not to get too worked up over it.
But after really thinking about it, and listening to other people opinions about my situation, it seems I'm more worried about data loss than I am the up keep of the loop. So, that's why I'm going to focus my attention on perfecting my backup process so I can have peace of mind.
