    To finish off the week in style Thermalright announced the Silver Arrow SB-E, a new, high-end CPU cooler based on the Silver Arrow model introduced back in 2010.

    The Silver Arrow SB-E features a dual tower/dual fan design and has eight (nickel-plated) 6 mm copper heatpipes (the old Arrow comes with four 8 mm pipes), a tweaked heatsink, two TY PWM fans - one 140 mm and one 150 mm (the SA packs two 140 mm spinners), and a mounting kit offering support for Intel LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 775 and AMD AM2(+) / AM3(+) / FM1 processors.

    The Silver Arrow SB-E also makes use of some more 'discrete' fan clips that won't interfere with taller memory modules. The cooler is expected to become available at the end of this month. No price tag was announced but we found it on pre-order at about $103 / 78 Euro.

    so they use ancient way, the bigger hsf the more it can handle the heat
    wait, wait... look at the first fan, it has tight space to ram, so if your ram like this

    just use water...

    A low/mid spec closed loop systems like a corsiar h80 are gonna cost less than this and wont snap your motherboard.

    yep, but some people prefer air based cooler than water based cooler :D

    What is that? Looks like spare parts from the Hadron Colllider. I don't think my Vengeance sticks would allow this monster in.

    Does Reapers still exists? (and properly attached to their sinks?) :D

    Does anyone even have ram that gets hot?

    Only time my ram got warm was when I ran 1.8v through some ddr3 1333mhz (standard height)

    True, but no one likes "ugly" exposed RAM PCB in their computers, not enthusiasts anyway...

    Yeah but don't need big tall heat-spreaders, I have these and will fit under pretty much all heatsinks and don't even get warm.

    Sometimes too big isn't the answer. Liquid Cooling at some point is more logical choice. You can safely mount that kind of cooler (dual-tower) with horizontal motherboard tray. Unfortunately 99.9% cases are out. Only products like some Mountain Mods, XSPC, DD, test bench or any DIY mod are in. It is really dangerous. Board can snap easily. If board survive CPU sockets often suffer because of excessive stress on the bottom edge.

    As for high RAM heat spreaders. Pointless in the extreme. No advantage over normal or low profile sticks. On the other hand more expensive and really cumbersome. Using certified normal/low profile RAM for ages. If I get sticks without radiator I buy copper heatsinks for peanuts (e.g. VIZO). Certified Kingstons in particular. Running like charm, OCing wildly, cost 30% less than "Designed for [.... put whatever platform you want here....]". Never get even remotely hot with whatever OC.

    even for novies, a corsair h80/100 makes watercooling very easy and risk free

    There are few risks tbh if a custom system is set up properly, i've been on custom water cooling for 10+ years without a problem.

    Personally, I think the big, gargantuan coolers should be a thing of the past. With advances in thermal design and dissipation today, the smaller ones do a pretty damn good job of cooling. I think those closed loop systems are nice. Of course, I personally want to go back to a custom loop myself sometime this year. Maybe after I save enough scratch for the Cosmos II :p

    Oops! I think you meant 2011. :toast:

    Yes, that cooler's a monster and gives the Noctua NH-D14 a run for its money.

    I had a lasting relationship with a TRUE black. The mounting hardware is as solid as it gets, good for tweakers. This one would look killer on a Sabertooth board. Me likes. Low profile mem required!

    Then don't put the fan in the front. You can either put the second fan in the back or just use one fan in the middle. Less efficient, yes, but still probably one of the best performing heatsinks out there.

    Also, notice how they are using a 1366 board with 6 memory slots. Spacing tends to be a little tighter on those types of boards than even 2011 boards with only 4 slots(though the spacing is sometimes tight on 2011 with 8 slots). On boards with a little more room between the socket and the first memory slot, the fan wouldn't be an issue with tall heatspreaders.

    Plenty of enthusiasts like me are not about aesthetics. Everything is about performance. What it looks like matters not to me, and does not in an way impress my friends. ;)

    I was kinda wondering what happend to thermalright. I remember when their ultra 120 was king of the aircooled market. Still is one of the best aircooler you can get!

    Actually a lot of coolers beat it by quite a far margin now.

    One of my Alpenfóhn coolers (nordwand rev b) beat my True EX by a good 10 degrees. ( Believe this was on a x3220)

    That's a huge amount of difference : ]

    I imagine it wouldn't even get close to keeping up with my current cooler ( Silver Arrow)
