    Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing Red 140

    i was just wondering if anyone knows the maximum temperature these can handle, the website does'nt say anything about temperatures, for AM4/AM3+ or intel sockets, and there are no reviews on google or youtube video's

    i don't have room in my case for a twin fan cooler, and i will built a ryzen sometime when i get around to it

    Any cpu at stock settings should be fine, it's cooling ability will only be an issue depending on how hard you push an overclock.

    i only have a fx 8300 to overclock so it will easily manage, but the corsair hydro h80i struggles with the fx 9590 under full load which is 220 watts TDP, using a 120mm fan

    the instructions are 100% rubbish, so you have to try and work it out on your own to install the mount to the motherboard, and its also kind of useless having the radiator in direct contact with your case, so you need some rubber washers to act as a heat shim/buffer

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-Rubber-...IAAOSwSlBY142F

    if you don't your CPU will end up being twice as hot, without some washers using a single fan setup, you cannot have the second fan that the radiator supports without buying some M1 or M2 30mm screws yourself, because you only get 4 included

    if you get it setup right, the radiator is good for 45c drop in temperature so you can a fx 8300 running at 4.6GHZ with 70c temp after a hour of prime95

    Actually the mounting system looks like the standard Asetek one, so it's the same method as the corsair, NZXT and Antec to name a few.

    the radiator connects directly to your case with some tiny screws, if you have 2 or 3 mm shim washers for a buffer, then the radiator won't heat up you whole case, which inturn is keeping the radiator warm up to a constant temperature and never loses as much heat from the cooling fan, with some washers inbetween the case and radiator, you can get upto 20c extra cooling depending on your rooms central heating

    which would be everyone's problem with old cases which does'nt have dedicated radiator mounts, so they will just use any spare fan mounting holes
