    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Corsair H80i cooling a overclocked (3.9GHz) i5-4690K.
    silent all the time except when in playing space engineers.
    just run geekbench 4 and the temps never went above 63c

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    With my current 7700k -a Corsair 115 it works quite excellently but the cost ...

    I built a Ryzen 1700x system recently for my nephew and installed a Noctua NH-U12s - This thing is massive but does it ever cool! and far cheaper than water cooling, and NO noisier!

    ... I will be going back to air cooled next build

    Two CPUs in a 360mm rad loop. Temps don't go above 60. It's incredible.

    I'd love to delid my 6600K, the DELID-DIE-MATE 2 looks good just sweating with the idea of breaking the i5 though lol.

    Also is it worth reliding as ive seen people just clamp it back without resealing the lid?

    Coolermaster Hyper 212x.
    Noise and temperatures vastly improved from stock AM3 cooler.
    But it isn't the only source of noise,so can't judge it on its own.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    I have the Antec Mecury 360 which is a cheap and chearfull 360mm AIO cooling my 8700K. I took a chance with it as it was on sale at a great price...just under 100 bucks. Keeps my 8700K which is overclocked to 4.9Ghz at 26 to 28 Degrees C at idle and at load Prime95, Aida64 etc maxes out at just under 80 degrees c. Apparantly the pump is a little faster than the astek units moving water at just over 200 Litres per hour but is still quiet as I have never heard the pump over my case. I have changed the fans that came with it to Corsair HD 120's but overall, very happy.

    Corsair h115i, can be a little noisy, but tweaking the settings really helps that.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Corsair H105. Stock fans are really loud, so swapped them for some Noctua items. Much better now
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Thermalright True Spirit 120. Probably overkill for my CPU but it keeps it cool and is very quiet.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Cooler Master TX3 EVO with a second fan fitted. Keeps temperatures within limits but very noisy - nearly as loud as the system buzzer that sounded when using Handbrake with the stock cooler for my I5 2800K. I keep wondering about whether to go for a larger air cooler or switching to water.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Fractal Design Celsius S36 on a 7820x @ 4.8GHz. Great temps (mid 60s in heavy use, low 70s during stress testing), very low noise except when running stress tests.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    I find it curious that back in the days of Prescott P4s and similar pumping out tonnes of heat & only using rudimentary power management water cooling was used by only the hardcore few.

    Now everyone seems to be using it on processors that put out half the heat and use much more aggressive power management.
