I wonder what you guys think about the Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler.

I'm about to order a new workstation with tall Memory RAM modules and I was going for the H80i and use it as exaust in a Corsair 550D case, but since I saw this cooler I trying to find more about its performance.

Anyone already using it or is there any review online?

You linked two different coolers.

Which one is it? Also, you'll always be better off with a good air cooler than a closed-loop liquid cooler; they cool just as well, for cheaper, and the "water coolers" are more likely to braak, and have no heatsink to allow the CPU to downthrottle safely when they do break.

No ideia how I got those links in there.. sorry.

The new cooler from Thermalright is this one: Thermalright Archon SB-E X2
It seems to be good and it doesn't mess with the RAM so you can fit High Profile (heatsink) Memory Modules like the Corsair Dominator and Kingston Beasts.

I wonder how's the performance of this cooler and if it equals a H80i. The Noctua NH-D14 its nice then i'll need low-profile RAM instead.

But yeh I understand what you're saying about going for Air cooler.

Is there any other good air cooler that you can fit using higher RAM modules?
