Cool, good to know. I hope it's the fans, cause I really don't want to be hearing this buzzing noise all of the time. It's fairly faint, but it will annoy me to no end frown.gif

The temps are pretty good right now though. BF4 averages around 50C on core #1, which is almost always 4C - 5C hotter than my other cores.

I had an H80, and the pump made so much noise that I replaced the cooler on the system. When I used the H80 on a different system, I didn't hear the crackling/clicking anymore. The fans weren't the issue, but they weren't very quiet either.

That's weird.

I think I found my problem though. If I unplug the fans, the buzzing is pretty much gone. I can hear the pump, which sounds like a hard drive or humidifier, but I can't really hear it too much over the fans. So, if I get some proper, good fans, hopefully the issue will be solved.

Pretty much everone replaces stock cheap fans with aftermarket ones.

Oh, I know. I planned on doing it when I bought this, I just couldn't get any 140mm fans at Micro Center.

I'm thinking of going with the Noctua NF-A14's. Any other recommendations? I usually use Noctua's, but if there is something better then I'll take a look at them.

I have 4 of these.
NF-A14 iPPC 2000 PWM

used to run these 2, still have them
Akasa Vipers

Both Noctua and Akasa fans have PWM control just like stock H110 fans.

How loud are those Noctua's at max RPM? I was looking at those earlier and they look like the A14's but with a higher RPM and better color theme.

The fans idle at 500 RPM, gaming around 800-900 rpm, barely can hear them.

At max, mine do 1900 RPM, are fairly loud but that's expected. (When running sysnthetic stress test for example)

I don't think anyone runs fans at max for browsing or even gaming, what's the point. The fans are PWM controlled, the fans ramp up as the cpu temp goes up.

Yeah, I never run the fans at max; you almost never see a temp difference.

I'll probably go with either the original A14's or the A14's linked. What exactly is the difference? I see the iPPC says it is industrial, but the only differences I can see are the RPM and color.

For me I choose ippc over the regular ones is color. If the color doesn't bother you, just grab the original A14's. Both versions have 6 year warranty, and excellent build quality.
