Thermalright SILVER ARROW Extreme- Thermal Paste Included?

Well I have a debate choosing between the Thermalright SILVER ARROW SB-E EXTREME and the Noctua NH-D14.

Now I have seen that the Noctua NH-D14 comes with the thermal paste included already.

Now with the Thermalright SILVER ARROW SB-E EXTREME you get included also the thermal paste aswell?

If so please let me know if those thermal pastes are good or should i buy some other brand.

NOTE: I am going towards the Thermalright SILVER ARROW SB-E EXTREME simply because of the color of the fans, but if the Noctua takes the cake I will buy it =)


Thanks in advanced!

  1. They are both really good coolers i prefer the NH-D14 both include thermal paste.The NH-D14 thermal paste is top notch the Thermalright SILVER ARROW thermal paste is decent.
  2. Yep, it comes with everything you need. The one it comes with is perfectly fine. Both coolers perform extremely well. People have been saying one performs better than the other for ages now. I would get the Silver Arrow because of the looks :)
  3. I own the Noctua NH-D14 and the Phanteks PH-TC14PE , both are exceptional coolers and the paste that comes with the Phanteks is exceptional.
  4. I rank the three top coolers as follows:

    1. Phanteks PH-TC14PE
    2. Thermalright Silver Arrow
    3. Noctua DH-14

    Thermal results are here:

    The Phanteks has a 5 year warranty, comes with TIM has very good aesthetics and many color choices.....

    The Noctua has 1 year warranty and is fugly as hell :). I have a Silver Arrow upstairs and its very quiet and gives great temp . I did paint the fans tho.... I remember shipping on the Silver Arrows was expensive.

    I use this TIM as it tops the charts

  5. I agree with the Phanteks being ranked over the Noctua.

    I use the Arctic MX4.

    ;)
  7. I forgot to mention that I will be getting the Rosewill Vector V2 case. And the Noctua NH-D14 fits in that case with no problems ( i did some research on this ) And it still left a a gap of 10mm so the Noctua is 160mm tall while the silver arrow exteme is 165mm tall. Am I risking it?

    Also they say that The Silver Arrow SB-E blocks the first PCI (x16) slot on the Rampage IV.

    I just bought the Asus Rampage IV Extreme:
    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/RAMPAGE_IV_EXTREME/

    I am planing on putting 16 gigs of ram (4 sticks) Kingston HyperX Beast,
    I got already an Asus GTX680 DCU2 4G BUT I will SLi by the end of the year.

    So since I am a noob and I dont want to end up returning stuff back.. Do you guys the Silver Arrow Extreme will fit with no problems with all the addons I just mentioned above? The only reason I am going with the Silver arrow extreme is becasue of the color. and they say the fans are faster so it will cool a lil bit more than the Noctua.

    But if the Noctua is a safer bet well I will go with that one. =)

    Thanks again.
  8. I have 2 Scythe Slipstream 110 CFM fans attached to my PHANTEKS , knocked it down 4 more degrees , with the Scythes in place of the stock Phanteks fans.
