Watercooling kit for FX 8350 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
So the h100i is like 27mm i think the radiator can fit inside, i measured it and its around that height. I'll order it from amazon, and if it doesn't work for me i'll send it back to them.

The reason i choose h100i is because the h110 is like 29mm, not sure if it will fit :/

Just remember water does not always mean better cooling. It is just another form of cooling that has much higher capabilities because it can move heat to a external heat exchange rather then requiring it be hooked directly to the CPU.

So if you want to make sure you get proper cooling make sure you check benchmarks to see if the product you want will perform the way you are expecting.

I checked the h100i, and it has some good performances, on the other part there is noctua nh d14 but its too big lol. The main reason i pick water over air, is because i want something that is silent

Just because it's water, doesnt mean it's silent. Sure, under normal conditions (ambient temp etc) water coolers on average are quieter BUT keep in mind that Pumps make noise and so do the fans on the rad. One of the reasons the D14 is so big is because it is able to keep things cooler without having to spin the fans up so fast. So if your processor starts putting out enough heat and your rad isnt able to dissapate the heat quickly enough for whatever reason (and you are using the speed controls) then the pump and rad fans will speed up to keep up with the temperatures, causing noise.

Sorry I didn't get here earlier, but you may not be able to push it much further than 4.5GHz. I'm sure you've heard the term "Luck of the draw" from overclocking, but just in case you haven't:

All CPUs are binned according to the quality of the silicon. Higher quality silicon will be able to overclock higher.

Not too long ago AMD started taking all the high binned FX 8350s, and putting on a stock overclock according to their bin and selling them as the FX-9*** series, meaning there are very few and far from good 8350s for overclocking available for purchase on the market. It may not be an issue with your cooling, but an issue with the chip itself.

The Corsair will not perform much better than the Noctua D-14, but it will very likely be quieter. Dual-fan radiator setups (the Corsair H100) just have so much more surface area, meaning they need lower air velocities to keep proper cooling. Basically, as a cooling setup gets thicker it needs higher air velocities to properly utilize that thickness as the air heats up, and as it gets hotter it becomes less efficient at cooling. In reality the Noctua D-14 and the Corsair have very similar area that is actually cooled, the noctua just has depth, while the Corsair has width/length.

Yes the Swiftech H220 is a lot more expensive, but it's a much better kit. The Swiftech H220 has the MCP-35x pump in it. That pump alone sells for about $100. The MCP35x is one of the best pumps on the market and on a small 1 radiator 1 waterblock loop it will easily get 2gallons per minute. More specifically it has the Apogee Drive II micro, which is just a structurally smaller version of the Apogee Drive II, which is a Apogee XT with an inbuilt mount for the MCP35x pump, along with a factory installed MCP35x. It also comes with two very nice fans, the Swiftech Helixs.

The Corsair H100 has a really cheap pump that gets about 0.2gallons per minute nominal flow. That's nothing, it's just enough to keep coolant moving. The Corsair units have an extremely restrictive waterblock to counteract this, but still. That's a really bad pump. Unless they've changed the fans they come with to the Corsair AP120 performance, they also come with some poor fans too. A lot of people end up buying after market fans for them

The Swiftech may be a lot more expensive but you do get what you pay for.
