Phanteks PH-TC14PE or Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E?

Hello everyone!

I would like to overclock, so i would like to buy a good cpu cooler for my socket 115X configuration (s1155 : i5 2500K).
I have got a G. Skill RipjawsX F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM ram which height is 4cm. The silence is important to me.

Im thinking of:
- Phanteks PH-TC14PE
- Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E
- can you suggest anything else?

What should i buy?

THX for the help!

  1. DEFINITELY the Noctua NH-D14

    Tom's has been comparing it with all the those closed loop liquid coolers and only the >$120 ones match it (the ones with the large radiators)

    I have it and it's VERY quiet. You can adjust vertically on the heat-sink, how high up you want the fans, so that they fit with your RAM. I ran into stability issues on my 2600K that caused me to keep it OC'ed at 4.6GHz, not thermal issues.

    (about how quiet is it? i can hear the HDD writing on low PC loads, and on high PC loads, my GTX 570 turbine fans drown out all other noise the system makes.)

    That Phanteks cooler is supposedly better than the NH-D14 and the Silver Arrow, AFAIK, is in the same area too while being cheaper. So, not really DEFINITIVELY the Noctua NH-D14.
  3. Buy a 212+/Evo. I put them on everything, why you ask ? Because they dont cost much and they work fantastic. Want it to cool even more ? Just add another fan for $11 and some good thermal paste and your easily embarrassing water coolers costing twice as much.
