    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Old rig: 5-year old Corsair H100i 240mm cooling a i5-4670K @ 4.4Ghz. Overall very quiet and kept the processor under 65c most of the time. Everyone's situation will be different between ambient temps, cpu vcore if overclocking, case design, no. of case fans etc.
    New rig: Thermaltake Floe 280mm for an i5-8600K @ 4.8Ghz. Ambient temps around 23c, load mid 50's. Pump is quite noisy at idle, almost like there is an air bubble in there, but once any kind of load is put on the system it goes quiet. Very strange!

    Stock cooler, Intel Core i5-3350P.
    - I wasn't interested in overclocking so didn't spend extra money on a CPU that could be overclocked, so the the stock cooler does the job just fine for my needs.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Well, I am using the stock cooler for my Intel i5 3450 CPU The temps are fine, but it is REALLY slow and I can't really do good gaming on it. But it does the job I guess.

    Noctua NH-D9DX i4 for my server with E5-2650v2, Noctua NH-L9i for my ITX desktop with E3-1275Lv3, stock cooler for everything else. I don't overclock and only use a third party cooler if the stock of is too noisy.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Both my rigs are using Aqua-Computer Cuplex Kryos water blocks and full custom watercooling loops.

    My rig runs an i7-5930K and the wife's runs an i7-6900K. They are both kept very cool and very quiet.

    Re: QOTW: Which CPU cooler are you using?

    Custom water on my pc. Radiators are a Coolgate G2 360mm and a Coolgate CG360. Both rads are mounted in a box on a windowsill and each rad has 3x 120mm OCUK/Silverstone fans on them. CPU block is a EK Supremacy Evo but will soon be chaned to a Alphacool Eisblock XPX. GPU block is a Aquacomputer Kryographics for GTX1070/1080. Water pump is my trusty old Aquaextreme 50z which is soon to be replaced by a D5 Vario. Reservoir is a XSPC Photon 270. Tubing is 16/10mm Mayhems and coolant is Mayhems X1 Red. In winter I get stupidly low water temps in single figures (no I don't get any condensation issues). Lowest ever was 4.2 degrees C in 2010 and this winter saw it drop to 6.4 degrees C. My water temps never exceed 28 degrees in the summer and I tend to keep it around the 22-24 degree C range although this is dependant on outside temperature. It's a little noisy in the summer if it starts to heat up (not that often here though) and for the rest of the year it's pretty much silent.

    Ryzen 1700 with a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 2 with AM4 adapter. Very happy. Much quieter than any of the AIO's I've tried (Corsair, Antec, Coolermaster).
