Its very expensive for what it is aha.

tbh it's crap and wayyy overpriced. I install some games on my velociraptor raid0 setup and some on my caviar blue raid0 hard drives and I hardly notice the difference. just get something that's similarly priced like two 3TB's at raid0 or something biggrin.gif

trust me a semi-thick 120mm rad with a 240mm rad, from my watercooling experience 240mm win by like 100% lol more surface to cool the water down


uhmm no coz the rad on the h100i is thinner? no one is arguing that the h80i is better than the h100i. what we're trying to say is it's just marginally better and like what he said it would be a hassle on installing the h100i on his case. check the reviews for yourself. I have an h100i and i've seen a lot of tests trust me rolleyes.gif

Its less about price/performance and more about space. Also they're very very close to eachother. Within 3-5c on all graphs ive seen.

Know any good aftermarket GPU coolers for a GTX 680?
post #15 of 20
lol I just dont get why not 10$ more for a better cooling and noise level , IMHO 3-5c is alot for the lifespan of your CPU chip especially if youre overclocking. the theory with radiators are it does not exponentially rise with the level of your overclocking. OC-ing to 4.2 would get you near to similiar performance in h80i and h100i. But when you OC it to 4.5ghz and above thats when you'll see the difference in performance

and with the mounting

thats from the official corsair website

just saying... for me 10$ is worth it smile.gif

The way the case is built, I'd have to remove the top cover.

look at my build, i was building it with the same idea in mind.

Overclocking the CPU for any gaming benefit is slightly redundant and is going to ramp up your temperatures, and as such fan speeds quite a lot (Ivy has smaller TPD to Sandy, but heats up faster while overclocking). Make sure you get fans that are not loud at higher RPM if you still want to overclock, but if your main priority is silence I would consider that twice as the cost of noise and RPM only gives diminishing returns in performance.

Thermalright Silver Arrow (review) is very silent and has temperatures a few degrees away from Corsair H100 in quiet mode. You just eliminate the risk of running a whiny pump, so I'd definitely consider it instead of an ALC cooler.

Also, the rotary fan of the PNY is going to be your main headache. I would look into custom GPU coolers. Arctic Accelero Hybrid(review) seems to have cooling capacity while being a lot quieter than stock options, although I don't know is the Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo cooler, but most likely it's quieter (can't find a review for the exact model).

I don't know how quiet is that PSU, but unless you plan to go SLI, you could get a semi-passive like PSU Super Flower Golden King or Seasonic X-560. They work up to about 500W in fanless mode, and have no coil whine or the such, really amazing PSUs both.

Thanks for the tips. I may SLI in the future, thats why Im giving myself a little headroom/future proofing with not getting a quieter PSU. I'll also look into getting a aftermarket cooler on the GPU. I know its gonna be the loudest thing in my case more than likely being a reference card aha.

There are PSUs high in power and silent in operation, though (I would recommend you to check out silentpcreview.com anyway, nice stuff, consistent testing methods!). When you go past the higher mid-range, silence becomes increasingly expensive. Most people would be comfortable with near-silent, but better cooling instead of inaudible and hardly cooling (like Slipstreams). Good fans from what I've heard and read would be SP-120, Noctua, NoiseBlocker, BitFenix, Thermalright TY/X-Silent (One fan roundup, and here's another). Couple one set of those with some well dampened case of recommendation: Bitfenix Shinobi, Fractal Design Define R4, Antec P280, and the sound shouldn't annoy you at all, while keeping things cooled better than a silent set.

For instance, I had Fractal Design Define R3 with 4 of FD's own 120mm fans, and a Hyper 212+, and a GTX 460 with Gigabyte's Windforce 2X. It was a very pleasant low hum, hardly obtrusive or annoying, and it overclocked a 1055T nicely to 3.8GHz stable. There are better fans, and more efficient coolers disregaring fan RPM than what I had, and I could swear the Arctic Cooling fans are both bigger and lower RPM, and should be quieter than the Windforce 2X I had, so I think you'll be able to get a very nice and an even quieter setup for not much money!

Goes without saying that a custom watercooling loop with a big radiator would be the coolest and quietest, and wouldn't really cost all that much in the end, but if you're going for a middle-of the road solution my recommendations would be Thermalright, Prolimatech or Noctua for heatsink, any of those aforementioned fans depending on your own preference, then Kingwin, Seasonic , Super Flower or high-end Corsair for PSU, and for GPU either try changing to a DirectCU II (they're the most quiet ones, quieter during stress than any other card are in idle, won't overclock well though), Windforce X3, or get the Arctic Cooling aftermarket cooler. It's gonna be nicely silent however you do it thumb.gif
