Thermalright starts shipping the Archon SB-E X2, a new high-end HSF with eight 6mm diameter nickel-plated sintered copper heatpipes, a nickel-plated mirror-like copper base, and a large aluminium fin array that's cooled by two TY-141 140mm PWM fans with an airflow of 28.3 to 73.6CFM and noise level of 17 to 21dBA. The heatsink measures 155mm x 53mm x 170mm, it weighs 775g without fans and 1125g with the fans installed.

The Archon SB-E X2 supports Intel LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD Socket FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2/939 processors. Pricing is kinda high though, $99.95 is quite a lot for an air cooling solution.
Ever since the introduction of the first Archon "Slim Tower Heatsink" back in 2010, Thermalright has never stopped improving on its own design. Incorporating our new proprietary Pressure Vault Bracket System we introduce to the world the all new Archon SB-E X2. Aside from a total overhaul and upgrade of the mounting bracket system, the Archon SB-E X2 will be using two TY-141 high efficient double ball bearing silent fans, giving enthusiasts the perfect mash-up of performance, compatibility and silence!

The new VX BTKII mounting system on the Archon SB-E X2 brings Thermalright's Pressure Vault Bracket system to all new heights, for the first time supporting CPU's from both AMD and Intel. The VX BTK II works on almost all modern motherboards. The bracket system only takes four simple steps to mount your heatsink. A simple turn of the Central Pressure Knob lets you adjust between 40 to 70 pounds of extra pressure. The nickel plated bracket adds not only flair to your system, but also extra longevity against oxidization and rust.

The Archon SB-E X2 inherits the same award wining heatpipe design from the Archon SB-E. Eight 6 mm sintered copper heatpipes along with a massive 170 mm x 150 mm heatsink footprint allows the pipes to equally disperse heat from the CPU to the heatsink fins, so no bit of airflow is left to waste! Archon SB-E X2's Slim Tower design is only 53 mm across. This allows the Archon SB-E X2 to be fully compatible with RAM of all kinds, so power users are free to fill their RAM slots with high-end overclocked RAM.

Premium performance is only the beginning when it comes to Thermalright products. Silence is equally important, so striking a balance with performance is key. The Archon SB-E X2 comes with two TY-141 140 mm silent fans. The TY-141 utilizes Thermalright's new Silent Torpedo fin design, delivering a massive 73.6 CFM for only 21 dBA of silence! The Archon SB-E X2 is Silence and Performance done right, brought to you only by Thermalright!
