    Fractal Design Celsius+ S36 Prisma

    Worth the upgrade over a 280?

    Looking at the stats, noise seems to be the main one.

    Personally, I've recently made the jump from a Corsair H150i RGB to a Noctura Chromax.black NH-D15 and the two main differences I have noticed are:
    1. The NH-D15 is very noticeable when it spins up to full speed
    2. The Corsair is better at evening out the small points when your processer maxes out for a second or two, then goes back to normal. I can hear the fans spin up and down on the NH-D15, but I didn't notice this on the watercooler.

    On the flip side, I trust the NH-D15 to keep my slightly overclocked temps at 75C max, where the Corsair climbed over 85C before I chickened out of stress tests.

    Same old Asetek rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish as that H150i that effectively failed out of the tests.

    They're quieter under load, and if you ramped up the fans to the same noise level it'd be cooler

    My jaw still drops at the price of a CPU cooler. I'm guessing people who spend £200+ on a cooler are spending £1000+ on a CPU?

    Every CPU cooler review should include the Arctic Liquid Freezer II as a comparator.
