All plugins I've tried makes the page go blank.
I tried so far:
- Smart Archives Reloaded
- Clean Archives Reloaded
- Better Extended Live Archives
To answer your question directly, Smart Archives Reloaded works with W3 Total Cache. I have thoroughly tested it on my test bed and it works fine with W3 Total. I was even able to easily add the js to my minify settings.
Version 2.0 removed the caching from the plugin. Have you tried it with the latest version?
It seems that some of the other archive plugins use some sort of caching mechanism which might cause a conflict with a dedicated caching plugin like W3 Total.
W3 Total Cache just buffers and caches whole output, it has very little interaction with other plugins.
Does it work with W3 disabled?

Common issue with archive plugins is that they run out of available memory.
