Small typo on the first page:

Wow, surprisingly few posts. Well, thanks for the review, I was beginning to get curious about this cooler. And hey, here's a question, could this cooler accommodate 3 fans? If so, do you think that would significantly help the cooling out?

I've tried to put one of the fans in the pull position. (I wanted the third fan to do double-duty as an exhaust fan). It makes a whistling noise. Not entirely unpleasant, but definitely more noticeable than when pushing air into the heatsink.

Though this is a top cooler from Thermalright, I feel a bit disappointing that SPCR still doesn't have a review of HR02, which is regarded as fanless capable for silencers.

Do you see any motherboard flexing/bow due to the weight of this thing?

Given enough time, they all copy from each other. Usually the newcomer that bursts on the scene steals a little from everyone and adds some unique twist or just integrates everything a wee bit better. A generation or 2 later, it quickly slides into same-old, same-old. At least, with the best of the crop (like TR), the end results are good. Unlike TT, for example, whose copycatting seems not to provide any significant performance benefits.

copying designs is great for the consumers. it keeps performance high and costs low. Imagine if you had one company manufacturing heat pipe tower style heatsinks? They could easily charge $75 and not spend much effort improving on their design. instead we have lots of tower heatsinks from $25-90 with various performance at high and low fan speeds.

Are the thermalright TY 140mm fans are the best of their size right now?

Pardon me to go out of topics...
I must miss something... I thought that Scythe Slipstream/Kaze Maru 140mm would become spcr's 140mm reference fan... is there any reason to pick Noctua's 140mm fan than Scythe's?

Noctua can mount as a 140mm fan or as a 120mm fan. Scythe can only mount as a 120mm fan.

Plus the Noctua fans bearings appear to be better suited to horizontal use.

So Noctua is a fan that can be used in more circumstances.

The Cogage Arrow is the same cooler without caps on the heatpipes' ends, but costs much less. It's a very good choice if one doesn't need (or want) the fans included in the Silver Arrow. It also comes with 3 pairs of clips to mount as many 120/140mm fans, and rubber strips to decouple them to the heatsink body. Too bad its stock fan whistles when set at anything less than 100% speed through PWM... at full speed, it's pretty good for a 1200 RPM fan.

Anyway, I'm surprised to see the Arrow is such a good performer even at lower fan speeds. :shock:

hanks for the useful information, but it seems lie if you don't already have great 140mm fans the thermalright setup is worth paying a premium for to get the fans.

The Thermalright Silver Arrow is not on the recommended Heat sink list.
