Silent CPU cooler for overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 21
As an owner of a D14, I love it, but If I could do it again? Thermalright Silver Arrow.

The reason is because its runs just a tiny bit cooler and I think it looks alittle better, and the fans are a tiny tiny tiny bit quieter but in all seriousness? Both coolers are darn near silent

The NF-P12 is good but the NF-P14 is a jet engine at full RPM. It takes the ULNA to make it quiet, let alone silent.

A quiet bedroom at night is 30dBA. biggrin.gif

Fans move air and have moving parts.. That equals noise. Maybe not much but still some.

Therefore fans are not silent.

Silent = no noise human ear can hear... That is what 0dBA is.

And cooler/fan combo is not just what the fan's noise, but also the noise of air moving through the cooler. thumb.gif

Thank you for all the input! I know the Noctua D14 is good at cooling and has been rated with a moderately low noise levels.
Would be nice to hear from a Mugen 3 PCGH's owners word for it too, from what I have read it has been rated @<14dB which surely is low (a lot harder to find info on it than on the Noctua D14).

Both work excellent with only one slow spinning 140/150mm fan and already come with great fans @Stock.
Damn, forgot to mention that I can currently fit only coolers with max height of 167mm. I might be changing the case some day, though.
I will surely keep that one on my mind, might just sell this case to a friend.

Horizontal Volenti cooler, I guess.

Only sound would be a muffled pump hum somewhere.
http://www.overclock.net/search.php?search=volenti
Not sure what you're trying to say, there sure are lots of coolers which will cool more efficiently than the reference cooler and still keep their noise levels lower with bigger fan and heat sink and so on...

And thanks for the input, but I presume Volenti-cooling wasn't really what I was looking for.

Edit: I missed that post about Thermalright Silver Arrow, it seems like a worthy competitor for the NH-D14, I'm going to have to do some research on it!

Just to muck up the works a little more the Phanteks PH-TC14PE is second only possibly to Silver Arrow SB-E and Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme (same as SB-E but with TY-143 fans). All are quiet unless fans are above approx 1000rpm. SA SB-E Extreme with TY-143 fans max rpm is 2500rpm, 130cfm and 55dBA.... yeah, that's getting kinda loud wink.gif but for the few times you actually use your OC to it's full potential the added cooling may well be worth putting up with the noise.

Nonetheless you can remove the bottleneck. I was all biggrin.gif when I installed my TY-140s, profiled them to <800RPM, and noticed the noise that my monitor/TV makes.

The secret sauce of the Silver Arrow are the TY-140 fans. Put them on the NH-D14 and you'd enjoy similar performance and noise.

The Dark Rock Pro 2 (167mm)would be another great option, wich comes with arguably the best "Silent" Stock fans of any High End cooler.
The Mugen 3 PCGH is not a great choice really, it's just the Mugen 3 with two 800rpm non-PWM fans instead of one 1600rpm PWM fan.

For Example: you can run the bequiet fans on the Dark Rock Pro 2 avia PWM at ~500-600rpm wich would be virtually inaudible with these fans and certainly quieter than the Mugen 3 PCGH.

I hear you.. and that's no pun. biggrin.gif Many many years ago I spent weeks trying to find the hum in my super hifi system... It was the florescent ceiling fixture frown.gif

Agree about the TY-140 too. Have them on my Phanteks because they are better. :thumb
Erm, were on my Phanteks. Now have TY-143s on it. wink.gif

What Elohim says: Dark Rock Pro 2 is excellent thumb.gif

I got to keep checking for more of these coolers biggrin.gif
And I threw the Mugen 3 in just to shuffle up the deck, hopefully creating more talk.

d00d..you have a mugen3..get a quiet fan for it rolleyes.gif
alternative:Mugen3 copper..with quiet fan.
sorry about the Volenti thing..I assumed you wanted to really overclock.
