I'd be willing to bet the Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power HSF crushes all of these, especially if you upgrade to their TY-143 (faster) fan.


Nothing touches this thing at the $50 price point. 8mm heat pipes FTW.

This ad has been on the homepage for a while now and only gotten 11 responses before mine. I had no idea there was an OCN made video here, maybe if the home page gave some indication that this is a video more ppl would watch it.

I went with the Dark Rock 4. It was very simple to install, if only I didn't forget about the included screw driver it would have been even easier. It also looks really nice.

My only minor complaint is that my cooler is not perfectly straight due to the extra bracket required to install. If the backplate and side brackets are not perfectly straight you will have the same problem with the tower.

It reduced my temps on R5 2600x by 20 degrees compared to the stock cooler. Stock cooler got hot enough (70C+) that it throttled my SSD because of the stupid idea of mounting SSD's directly behind the CPU. I also moved my SSD and now is sits 10C cooler than my CPU and never gets hot.

The problem with the Dark Rock 4 is that they should've used the high speed variant of SW3 for a better all around performance. Also, they should've offset the heatsink a little bit to give it an infinite RAM compatibility... the current one easily blocks RAM which is unforgivable for a single tower cooler.
