i wish i bought h60 instead of x31. its really loud, rattling very strange, especially when USB is plugged in. My advise os to avoid that product. i will update after the RMA process completes
post #1162 of 2694
The h60 do have some clearance problem if you have a long PSU due to the stiff tube. Now the tube is actually pushing up my 140mm PSU up a bit.
Pump noise is definitely a pita. I have tried h60 h55 and x31. At 12v , the h60 is best in terms of sound quality and quantity. H55 come in second. Anyways, I can't stand any of them at 12v.
at 5v, the h60 is really good. The 55 is less loud(close up) than x31 but develop a weird cycle of noise, where the x31 is constant. The kraken g10 only take asetek head. And h60 tube is one big challenge if used for GPU.

My PC sits right next to me on the desk, and given that my graphics card fans and psu fan don't spin at idle, the only possible noise sources are my AP-15's spinning at 400rpm, and the H60 pump at 12v....

I can't hear anything coming from the pump. The entire PC is inaudible.

Now I'm 24 years old, so it can't hardly be a case of "old age" causing deafness. The only possible explanations are that a) I've got some sort of outrageously good H60 sample, b) the reports from others have been greatly exaggerated, or c) others form a vocal minority who have poor samples


Edit: if you check my rig pictures by clicking below, you can actually see how close my SG13 is to my keyboard. As I said, I sit right next to my rig..

my h55 was almost inaudible as well, and my standards are high in that matter. x31 in an IT world of mine sounds like 20 years old truck diesel motor on the street when USB cable is plugged in.

i got myself a cheap deepcool 120k AIO since the original h55 developed a leak a couple of days in.. unfortunately the deepcool started making noises after running flawlessly for the first 2 weeks... its gotten progressively worse over the weekend and now sounds like a mini volvo..

never tried water cooling before... and never gone through an RMA process either.. is it just water cooling or has quality control lost the plot... i think i'll try the nepton 120xl next

still a little unhappy with my hdd temps, thinking of making a heat shield for my r9 390 with some 2.5mm thick perspex.. this might not end well

At 24 years your hearing is already degrading wink.gif, not to an extent where the differences here should be noticable though.

An explanation might indeed be found in differences between individual products and possibly your environment. For example if I have the window open just the noise of a gentle breeze will make it near impossible for me to hear either one of my PCs. If the window is closed (and I have rather well sound isolating double glass windows) I can definitely tell the PCs are on.

Just did a super-budget build. I wanted to keep it under $1,000 for 2 systems but I went over a bit. I already had some SSDs laying around from an older build so my total expense was around $1,200 for 2 complete systems, full peripherals and everything. The idea was to be able to run Skyrim with some mods at 1080p full. Worked out pretty well, just in time for my twin brothers' birthdays/christmas.

Painted with Plasti-Dip and swapped case LEDs to match. I originally wanted to paint the black mesh on the front white but I was concerned any paint would clog the vents and leave the thing ugly.

Very cool. I don't think white would look as good
