Specifications, Availability and Pricing
On the technical end of the dual tower cooler body, I guess I will start with their base to get things rolling. There you will find a two piece sandwich of copper pieces and heatpipes. Before the cooler is nickel plated, Thermalright used C1100 pure copper for the base plate. On top of that, the eight 6mm Sintered heatpipes get soldered to the base and the upper section that will hold the mounting hardware. As the pipes exit the base, make a tight turn up, and spread apart from one another, they will pass through 63 aluminum fins of various sizes and are terminated at the top with caps for a clean finished look. The caps, fins, pipes, and the base are all nickel plated to fight corrosion and make cleaning fingerprints off much easier. The cooler without the fans measures 154mm long, 103mm wide, and 165mm tall, while weighing in at 750 grams.
Now we get to the good part, the real change that makes the Extreme what it is. This is where Thermalright introduces the TY-143 high speed fans. You will get two of these monsters with the cooler. Each fan is capable of up to 2500 RPM, with a 45 dBA noise rating, but the real joy comes from looking at that 130 CFM rating these 140mm fans come equipped to deliver. Each fan weighs in at 170 grams taking the fully assembled cooler weight to 1090 grams hanging from the motherboard socket. Since on fan sits between the towers there is only the 25mm thickness of the fan to add to the cooler dimensions, unless you decide to go with the option of using three fans on this design.
With the Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme just hitting shelves there are limited places to locate this cooler. Currently as I look around I found seven locations willing to take my money. The issue is that I have only ever heard of two of them, Buy.com and the Heatsink Factory. Buy.com shows that this will set you back $99.79, while the Heatsink Factory is showing a base price of $89.99 with the cheapest shipping option to me is another $10.25.
We are speaking of nickels and dimes in their price difference, but I haven't lost track of the fact that his is still a $100 air cooling solution. In my mind, for that sort of pricing, this cooler better perform very well.
