Best 240 AIO cooler. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
If I'd have had a case with no windows, I'd have gone for different fans most likely.
But this case has a full window on it where everything is visible. And I can't stand the colours of the Noctuas. Plus I'm trying to get everything reasonably colour coded.
But, above everything else, I'd be willing to suffer on performance for quietness. Which is why I've gone for the quiet SP fans in this case.
Although I'm probably going to do push pull on the radiator, depending on results, and I'd consider one set of fans as SP performance and one is quiet. All completely depending on results.

The Swiftech does seem to be getting a lot of thumbs up though, so I'll definitely consider this thing.
I find review sites on these things difficult to follow, especially as I'll be changing the fans, and 90% of reviews out there are based off of stock fans.

I couldn't point you to where they use a variety of fans on the unit but they are decent stock fans. Black and white color scheme.

I'd personally get some Gentle Typhoons in your situation. They'll run quieter and look a bit more subdued with their colors.

Martinsliquidlab(.)org may help you come to some decisions on the fan choice at the very least.

I said I'd piggyback a bit to see what people were saying, and I came to a conclusion.

You're looking for the best 240 cooler, so we had slightly different goals. I wanted a 240 cooler, but as cheap as possible while still being a quality product. I had the chance to pick up the Thermaltake 2.0 for $55 before tax but with a rebate (so like $70 at the turn, likely). I had my heart set on Corsair, though, and the heart wants what the hearts wants and I found a decent deal on the H100i that saw me only paying about $15-20 more. Why pay more? An extra 2 years of warranty and some personal testimonials of success with the H100i and my CPU. So that was enough to sway me and my decision.

Good luck in your search. From what I've seen and read, the Swiftech H220 is pretty darn good. And expandable, but then you need extra rads and hose and fittings and GPU blocks.
