Welcome to the Thermalright Archon club! Not only does this cooler allow for excellent, and I mean truly excellent cooling, it does so without sacrificing a single RAM slot. Now you don't have any reason to compromise between cooling and memory.

Anyone is more than welcome to ask questions, comment on their experiences, etc...

As with pretty much every other club out there, requirements for joining are as follows:

1) A picture of your rig with the Archon in clear view is required
2) Post a reply with the title "Add me" with the above mentioned picture in the body
3) (Optional) Post your idle and max load temperatures with your fan configuration - either 1 fan or 2

Now on to the important stuff
Here is our official sig:

Yea, it should fit. You will have a couple centimeters of spare space between the top of the cooler and the side panel. The cooler's max height is 17cm, where are the case 21cm. Even if you account the raise in height of the motherboard, the cooler should have at least 2 cm of spare space. That should be more than enough.

I hope you will start a spreadsheet on which cases have room for this heatsink.

That is a brilliant idea!! I should totally do that.

Oh wait a minute. I'm not "officially" in.
Let me take some pictures and I'll throw up some idle/load temps when I'm done. lol.

It's a shame that the FT02 case can't fit the Archon even though it's 212mm wide

Do you know of any way to embed the spreadsheet? It gives me an iframe tag, but this forum doesn't do html rendering... I've seen the Gr33n machine guys do it, so I know its possible.

It's a snug fit. But it keeps everything nice and cool.
Load temps don't get all that much hotter than this. I ran it for ~16h and the it looked pretty much like this, give or take a few degrees. That's at 3.78GHz, by the way. Load temps for stock barely push 50C. I love this thing. lol.


Whoo. Glad I found this one. This one is way more accurate. I did run this at 3.686GHz, though. Barely any change in voltage.

Sweet pics and nice temperatures.

You just sent me a google docs link... I have a form and a spreadsheet set up, I just can't embed the spreadsheet on the first post.

Also, input your case and cooler compatibility into the form in the first post.
