Massive cooler altogether, the Silver Arrow ITX-R is designed for miniature motherboard
The flagship CPU coolers are not always trouble-free installed on full-length motherboard and model size mini-ITX compatibility is poor. An exception may be cooler, specially designed for small systems, such as its original Silver Arrow ITX and the updated version of the Silver Arrow ITX-R.
New cooler is now compatible with the latest motherboards of Asus and ROG Maximus, and his reduced height (from 165 to 150 mm) is now better suited for compact housings. Overall dimensions altogether, the Silver Arrow ITX-R be 153 x 103 x 150 mm, weight is also reduced from 870 to 660 g. Design two-piece radiator such that the edges at the bottom have a smaller length, so they should not interfere with memory modules with high radiators or an elaborate cooling systems in some motherboards.
All metal surfaces are Nickel-plated, including copper heat sink. He connected with six copper heat pipes of 6 mm in diameter, also working in conjunction with aluminum fins. Fan featuring TY 129 dimensions 130 x 130 x 25 mm has mounting holes similar to the models size 120 mm, he joined with a heatsink by means of vibration-absorbing pads. The speed changes in the range of 300-1300 rpm, respectively from 21 to 33 dBA, which increases noise. The air flow reaches 94,8 cubic meters per hour, note the use of hydrodynamic bearings.
The cooler altogether, the Silver Arrow ITX-R is compatible with all current CPU sockets, including AMD AM4, AM3+, Intel LGA1151 and LGA2011-3. The kit includes a tube of Chill Factor thermal compound instead of 3.
