Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler Review

NikkTech
10 May 2013
  • Conclusion: The original Archon SB-E was a great performer especially if you take into consideration both the size of its heatsink (not a dual sandwich solution) and speed of its 150mm PWM fan so in a way we knew almost exactly just how good the X2 version would perform. As a matter of fact the Archon SB-E X2 performed slightly better than what we had hoped when we saw that Thermalright used 140mm fans instead of 150mm ones so that's very good news.
  • Pros: - Build Quality, - Near-Excellent Performance, - Size (No Clearance Issues), - Two 140mm PWM Bundled Fans, - Relatively Low Noise Levels, - Universal Compatibility
  • Cons: - Height (For Some), - Price (For Some)

Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
5 March 2013
  • Summary: The Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 is impressive in its construction. Eight heatpipes (actually working as if there were 16, since they are U-shaped) is not a common feature, and two 140 mm fans is the current standard for high-end air coolers. Unfortunately, the cooling performance was good, but not at the level we expected in light of its excellent specifications. On the other hand, the Archon SB-E X2 is very quiet, which is nice.

  • Conclusion: Thermalright’s Archon SB-E X2 CPU cooler costs £56 in the UK. This means that Thermalright are fighting it out at the £60 price point with high performance dual tower heatsinks like the Noctua NH-D14 and Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2. It is also situated at the price point of entry level AIO water coolers – competing with the Corsair H55, Cooler Master Seidon 120M and Enermax ELC 120.

  • Conclusion: Jeg er under hele testen meget imponeret over hvor gode materialer den er opbygget af, og hvor robust den virker i forhold til ALLE andre kølere, som jeg har haft hjemme til test. Det er meget positivt og samtidig med at den har så god en køleevne! Monteringen er nem at overskue, og det er klart en køler der egner sig godt til brug ved overclocking og store porcessorer som bliver belastet meget - man skal dog huske at være opmærksom på dens størrelse.
  • Pros: Designet Der er ingen tvivl om at designet holder, samt den er stærk og godt lavet af kvalitets materialer som er bearbejdet så lækkert - som alt sammen gør at den er utrolig lækker at se på!, Køling Her er vi oppe i den profesionelle ende af køling og det bliver nok ikke meget bedre som det ser ud nu.
  • Cons: Størrelsen Den eneste ting jeg kan påpege er kølerens størrelse., Størrelsen Den eneste ting jeg kan påpege er kølerens størrelse.

4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Zusammenfassend lässt sich festhalten, dass der Kühler selbst in schwierigen Situationen standhalten kann. Bei einer CPU-Spannung von 1,2V bei unserem i5-2500K und einer Lüfterspannungen von 7V wurde eine Temperatur von 50°C, respektive 56°C erreicht, mit einer Spannung von 12V nur 49°C bzw. 52°C, je nach dem, ob einer oder beide Lüfter arbeiten. Damit positioniert sich der Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 zweimal  auf dem Podium.
  • Cons: + Leistung, + Lautstärke 7V, + schnelle, unkomplizierte Montage, Abschließend nochmal die Wichtigsten Punkte in der Pro/Contra Aufstellung:, – Kompatibilitätsprobleme bei unserem System, – Lautstärke 12V

  • Summary: Der neue Thermalright Kühler bietet eine hervorragende Verarbeitungsqualität, enorme Kühlleistung (auch Overclocker können bedenkenlos zugreifen) und zwei angenehm leise 140 mm PWM-Lüfter (für Silent-Fans ein Muss!). Mal abgesehen von den üppigen Maßen gibt es am Thermalright Kühler nichts zu bemängeln. Christoph meint: Top High-End Kühler!
  • Pros: top Verarbeitung (Kühler und Lüfter), sehr gute Leistung, auch bei max. Umdrehungszahl angenehm leise, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen, sicheres Montagesystem
  • Cons: teuer, Maße
