Noctua NH-D14 Vs. corsair H100 - Page 15

this can be done by adjusting the angle of attack of the fan blades
while the noise will still be the same on either config because it's still 500rpm

It's nice to see people understanding the nuances of fans, and that it's not just cfm, cfm, cfm. kudos. (people also ignore air velocity imo)

Incidentally I've seen the Noc NF-F12 do very well on the H100, outcooling GT-15s while barely breaking 1200rpm. Weird thing about the F12 is that its blades aren't very aggressive, and its palpable airflow feels very light. Yet the darn thing cools like a bandit. I held my hand up to one in open air and was like, how the hell is this cooling anything? Felt like a mild draft coming off it.

A lot really does come down to this, and if someone feels that way than the decision is clear. I like air coolers but I'd be lying if I said I didn't come close to punching the thing now and again.

IMO People should Buy What Makes Them Happy - as long as they understand the pros and cons of their decision -- so they don't get unpleasant surprises after their purchase. thumb.gif

agree, i just hate it when some people insist that you should not buy a CLCs, i/we bought it for a reason.

I've ALWAYS promoted that people Buy What Makes Them Happy. Why would you NOT? wink.gif

As far as the pros and cons, many people like to over-value the merits of liquid cooling in CLCs and under-value the cons of CLCs and that's where the pissfests start. redface.gif

As long as people know the whole story before they buy, they should not be disappointed with their purchase.

That's the problem, the original poster doesn't want what makes him "happy". He wants what is best out of the two, with reasons why before he commits to making a purchase.

If you want quietness and good performance, get something like NH-D14 or Silver Arrow. In order to get quietness and higher performance than NH-D14, you would have to get a custom loop with at least a thick, low FPI 360 radiator and low speed fans (below 1500 rpm). You can also cool your graphics card too (but you may need more radiators depending how many graphics cards you have).

H100 is going to run much louder and cost more for marginal performance improvement (1-2 C). H100 is a thin rad with high FPI. H100 has 20 FPI compared to a Rasa RS240/RX240 which has 12 or 8 FPI respectively. Loud combination.

How do you know what is best won't make him happy? wink.gif

"Best" is in the eye of the Beer Holder unless you quantify your definition of "best". Your definition of "best" could be much different than other people's.

Pretty much all the pros and cons have been exposed/argued so I doubt there is any hidden pertinent details regarding the two options at this point..

What about end results? Not temps, not noise or cost, but the final, real end result?

1. Your OC and it's performance improvement (FPS, bench scores, etc.)
2. The processor's lifespan due to OC.

I think we are all here to maximize these two things. You should ask yourself if you have considered the real impact of your purchases.

(I suppose if we didn't spring for a top platform, then cost must be just as important).

We don't know what anyone's OC's will be with different CPU coolers until they test their hardware - so you can't assume one cooler will produce better results than another without actually testing both. Maybe the fastest OC is not what every person wants. Maybe cost, noise and reliability are important to some folks. Each person and their desires can be different.

No one has shown any statistical data on the lifespan of CPUs @ default voltages, OC voltages, @ OE temps, with aftermaket coolers, etc. This would all be speculation without accurate statistics.

Not everyone on this forum springs for the "top platform". Some folks just want the most bang for the buck, operate on a budget, or have some other criteria of importance to them when selecting hardware components.

That's why I suggest that people buy what makes them happy. Only they know for sure what that is.
