    Be Quiet Shadow Rock Slim (as not to interfere with clearance with my Vengeance Pro's heatsinks) Damn quiet and keeps my i7 4790k's temps in check.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Cooler Master 212 on both my computers. They are both many years old now but still run Quiet and cool nicely. I clean out the dust every once in awhile. These are great units.

    Years ago I was water cooled but sold that stuff and have never looked back.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    NZXT Kraken X61 on a 5960X

    System starting to get old, But just don't see any reason to upgrade anything other than the main gpu's each year or two.
    Next cpu cooler on new build will be the newly announced NZXT X72, What a beast!

    CoolerMaster Hyper 212EVOs on 7700K & 8700K. Keep both at about a 15% overclock. Used mainly for database & number crunching, very rarely encounter a heavy load.

    Wraith Spire. Default for the 1700. Will have to reinstall the screws. Installing the screws were not easy.

    I was thinking of going water cooling. The Wraith Spire is doing a good job so that's that.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    The poor buggers with Intel stock coolers. At least AMD make an effort.

    My i5 has a Scythe Mugen, that has been handed down from a socket 775 chip to now. Huge. Fan barely comes on. Very quiet.

    New Ryzen build is using the stock Spire cooler. Nice and quiet.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Noctua NH-D15. Great but seems like a dust magnet, may well be my room though I don't have it on the floor. Would recommend if you have a big enough case and mobo.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Cooler Master Nepton 140XL, a bit noisy at full tilt but keeps temps down really well.

    Only hits full speed on video encoding to which I leave it to it then so no issue.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    I7 3770K @ 4.5 with a Noctua NH-D14 running 24/7.

    Installed in a HAF XB case with two Noctua 140 at the front, and one 120 rear fan connected to a BitFenix Recon contoller, the system is very quiet. Fan speed is adjusted with the GPU (1080Ti FTW3) heatsink temp.

    I slightly modded the case by cutting away some plastic behind the front mesh to improve air flow, and by making a magnetic dust filter. Very easy to keep clean.

    I want to go water cooling but common sense prohibits.
