Thermalright Intros Archon CPU Cooler, Makes Room for Memory

Thermalright introduced its latest CPU cooler, the Archon. Building on the tower-design it pioneered, the Archon carries the sales tagline "make room for your memory", meaning that it's designed keeping in mind minimal intrusion of the motherboard's memory area. It did this by reducing the depth of the heatsink, while making up for it with length. The Archon makes use of a 140 mm fan for ventilation. The aluminum fins are not very planar, instead propagate in a zig-zag manner to increase air turbulence.

Six 6 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes convey heat to the aluminum fins from the base, which are uniformly spread across the area. A Thermalright TY-140 fan is bundled, which spins at speeds between 900 and 1300 rpm, with noise levels of 19-21 dBA. A tube of Thermalright Chill Factor III thermal compound is also bundled. All current CPU socket types are supported, namely LGA1366, LGA1156, AM3/AM2(+) and LGA775. The company did not give out pricing and availability, yet.

Kind of reminds me of the Prolimatech Armageddon but with dual rows of pipes and more of a TRUE shape.

Good looking cooler! Hopefully with all the new 14cm coolers coming out some one will make a high performance 14cm fan.

I wonder how this compares to the Prolimatech Armageddon. I was going to buy the Armageddon but now might hold off until I see review on this.

IMO it's about time, looking forward to it, hope there is a black version, I'm getting tired of painting my heat sinks.

I dont think it looks like the Armageddon all that much. I do like the looks of it, slim, silent, and looks like it cools as good. Any idea of a price?
