    Great review! That's why we need this kind of thing so we don't have to find out for ourselves!

    So much so that be quiet! takes away the unwanted accolade of being the first air cooler to fail our customary overclocking test.
    I was tempted to dump the custom loop I have when it came to system rebuild time next year, and was a toss-up between this and Noctua's D15S. Always liked be quiet! stuff but heh, now chromax is a thing...

    Noctua just can't be beat. I'm still rocking a D14 I bought in 2011 and I can't imagine changing it for at least another decade. Absolutely silent, 60c idle, 65c while gaming. Only time I hear the fans spin up is instances like game loading on Civ, where the whole CPU is used at once, otherwise the fans stay at their minimum of around 300rpm

    I've got to admit that BeQuiet! do make some lovely kit, I ran my system on a rake of their silent wings 2 fans, and they worked well offering decent flow in total silence but had lots of grunt, albeit at higher noise levels. I just wish they'd embrace RGB as an option, although for a closed case, or a stealth build, their stuff is my go-to, their satin black looks awesome, it performs well, and lives up to their name, because they are indeed quiet. This review was interesting to see that a relatively compact air cooler could keep a stock CPU's temperatures in the same ballpark as an AIO liquid cooler, although sadly it failed the overclocking test, still interesting none the less...
