Thermalright Silver Arrow ITX-R Rev.A -- massive cooler for ITX builds

Quite a lot of new air cooling products lately, now we have news about another HSF from ThermalRight. The firm rolls out Silver Arrow ITX-R Rev.A -- this is a pretty large HSF that's optimized for the ASUS ROG series Mini-ITX motherboards. Compared with the original Silver Arrow ITX-R from 2017, the Rev.A weighs 30g less and has better RAM clearance.

It's designed for Mini-ITX motherboards but given its big dimensions, it's unlikely to fit in typical Mini-ITX cases. It's more of an HSF for mounting on a Mini-ITX motherboard in a larger case; The heatsink itself measures 155mm x 103mm x 147mm (L x W x H) and weighs 630g. It features a copper base, six 6mm diameter heatpipes, and two heatsinks with 41 aluminum fins. Thermalright rates the HSF at up to 240W TDP. Included with the heatsink is the TY-129B fan, this model is mounted between the two tower heatsinks. The fan is a PWM model with a maximum airflow of 84.97CFM, maximum static pressure of 1.89mmH2O, and a noise level of up to 23dBA.

The new model is compatible with Intel LGA775/115X/1366/2011(-3)/2066 and AMD Socket AM4 processors. Pricing and availability are unknown.
The aluminum fins of the Silver Arrow ITX-R have been optimized to the specs of the Asus “Republic of Gamers” Mini-ITX motherboards. The design guarantees that incompatibilities to memory modules and VGA cards are excluded on these boards. The copper heat pipes and the mounting materials are nickel plated as well.

As with all our high performance and quality coolers the Silver Arrow ITX-R makes use of the well-proven heat pipe technology. A total of six high-performance 6 mm heat pipes provide the most efficient dissipation of the generated processor heat. The heat pipes are tightly integrated into the copper base plate, which guarantees the most effective heat dissipation.

The included TY 129B fan is temperature controlled (PWM) – the fan speed varies (depending on the CPU temperature) between 600 and 1,500 rpm. The air flow of the for silent operation optimized fan varies between 28.32 and 84.97 m³/h while generating a noise level of about 19 – 23 dB(A). This means the fan will hardly be noticeable during standard operation. The fan features the mounting points of a conventional 120 mm fan and has a larger inner diameter than conventional 120 mm fans. The silent running fan is fitted securely to the heatsink with the included, revised fan brackets – adhesive anti-vibration pads allow for decoupled mounting. -- Thermalright
