Thermalright Silver Arrow ITX Review


So Thermalright have released a Silver Arrow ITX Cooler.  Now we're guessing that even though it's been a while since we pitted the original Silver Arrow against the mighty D-14 back in 2010 you'll all remember that it stood up well for itself right up until the final round when the voltage and temps just got too much for it and the Noctua triumphed with a knock out blow.  It's fair to say that the brand spanking new Silver Arrow ITX will not be making a bid for the belt as this is very much a light weight contender compared to the other two heavy weights, and although it shares the same twin stack layout with its big brother, the ITX has only 6 x 6mm heat pipes as opposed to eight, and only sports a single fan nestled between its twin stacks as opposed to the two units on the full fat version.  All that said, the ITX is still a bit of a monster, measuring 154x103x165mm (LxWxH) it should though still be small enough to fit into a good many cases, and with just a single centrally mounted fan any RAM encroachment issues should be largely mitigated.  To get the full picture let's have a look at the Technical Specification.

Good review, nice to see you are using gloves, other reviewers don't care about fingerprints left all over the hardwareQuote

Nice review! Good cooler, in fact rather amazing considering it lost 2 pipes and a fan.

Was wondering where you are monitoring the air temperature for calculating delta temps. Is it the room or the actual temp of air going into cooler / radiator?Quote
