Thermalright Silver Arrow ITX-R CPU Cooler Released

Thermalright recently released a new version of their Silver Arrow CPU air cooler, the Silver Arrow ITX-R, designed and optimized for mini-ITX motherboards and ITX builds. Large CPU cooler usually overshadows an ITX motherboard, causing clearance issues not only at the DIMM section, but also at the GPU section as well. That’s where the ITX-R comes in. It features two twin tower aluminum fin stacks and a single 130mm fan on the middle. More details about this revision below.

Thermalright Silver Arrow ITX-R CPU Cooler Features

With the Silver Arrow ITX-R we present a revised version of the Silver Arrow ITX with even more compact dimensions. The goal was to be able to us the CPU cooler also on the current models of the ASUS MAXIMUS Mainboard series. In addition, the powerful twin tower cooler offers the possibility to fit into even much more compact Mini-ITX cases, due to its reduced height.

Despite the compact designs, the twin tower design ensures a particularly large cooling surface. This forms the basis for the outstanding cooling performance of the Silver Arrow ITX-R. Due to the design of the fins, which has been adapted to fit perfectly to the included fan, the cooler offers especially at low fan speeds and low air flow rates an outstanding cooling performance.

The Silver Arrow ITX-R also impresses with its stylish “Black Nickel Design” and thus visually stands out from the “grey” average of CPU-coolers. The copper heatpipes and the mounting materials are black nickel plated as well and offer in conjunction with the black heat pipe caps a very unique look.

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.

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

The base of the cooler features a slightly convex shaped support surface. The design, first developed by us several years ago, has been “borrowed” from various other manufacturers since. In comparison to flat surfaces, the convex shape further optimizes the cooling performance – especially on Intel systems.

The included TY 129 fan is temperature controlled (PWM) – the fan speed varies (depending on the CPU temperature) between 300 and 1,300 rpm. The air flow of the for silent operation optimized fan varies between 21.9 and 94.8 m³/h, while generating a noise level of about 21 – 33 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.

The Silver Arrow ITX-R supports all current processors. Users of an Intel LGA 775/1366/1156/1155/20100/1150/1151/2011-3 CPU can mount the cooler as well as owners of an AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+. In addition, the cooler has factory-installed AMD AM4 processor modules.

The equipment is completed by the excellent Thermalright Chill Factor 3 thermal paste (blister) and a pair of white cotton gloves.

Mind that the installation height of the Silver Arrow ITX (150 mm) and check, if your case offers enough space for the installation of this twin tower cooler.
