Thermalright Silver Arrow Reviewairman - August 10, 2010
With no release price received yet, I would guess the Thermalright Silver Arrow is probably going to launch around the $60 or $70 mark since the Silver Arrow is nearly identical to the Cogage Arrow, which is currently priced around $60. With the fans, the Silver Arrow is a huge cooler and is definitely the biggest cooler that I have ever tested. As I stated earlier, the 12v connector on the motherboard was difficult to access with the heatsink installed, and I almost had to unscrew the motherboard and tilt it out to get it to plug in. This is something that consumers will have to get used to either way, because as processors get hotter, the coolers will continue to increase in size unless a manufacturer has a mega breakthrough in cooling technology. Regardless, the Thermalright Silver Arrow is a significant contender to the current market of heatsinks and is a great choice for anyone searching for a new, high end heatsink and is not afraid of dealing with its massive size.
