Default Thermalright Archon CPU Cooler Review

Very little time has passed since two new coolers from Thermalright Inc saw the light of day: HR-02 and Silver Arrow, but the company is already introducing their new creation – Thermalright Archon. According to the official info, the name for this new cooler was taken from the popular StarCraft 2 game, where one of the magical psionic support units from the Protoss race armed with a plasmic shield is called “Dark Archon”:


Well, what can I say? Thermalright designed a truly magical cooler. Although two-array heatsinks are currently extremely popular, Archon turned out just as efficient as Silver Arrow, and with two fans attached to it, it proved even more efficient. In our opinion, there are several factors behind this impressive victory. Firstly, it is very smart heatpipe layout inside the heatsink that allows distributing the heat over the heatsink more evenly. Secondly, we shouldn’t forget about thick 0.5 mm heatsink plates soldered to the heatpipes. Thirdly, it is the use of an extremely effective Thermalright TY-140 fan. And the fourth factor is cooler’s reliable retention providing very secure hold and impeccably polished contact surface of the base plate. All these factors combined allowed Thermalright Archon to become the today’s most effective cooling product. Of course, we shouldn’t also forget that the bent base of the cooler could have turned out to be an ideal fit for the non-lapped heat-spreader of our test CPU. However, this is highly unlikely.
