Add to that the fact that you have to a 280mm or 360mm CLC to get the performance of an R1/D15/TC14PE/etc, and the CLC is going to be significantly louder.....

Your new system looks to be nice. thumb.gif
Your old system is nice too, and It's still a good system for many applications. thumb.gif
Dark Knight is a good cooler. Not as good as some but way better than many others. biggrin.gif


Yeah, its served me real well and still looks cool even to this day with its nickel finish. Pit I won't be reusing it anymore as its not worth anything worthwhile to sell/ship and it won't fit in my HTPC. Owell, she's had a good air cooled life. I put a GeLiD PWM fan on it and it still cooled well and quiet for my overclocked i5 2500k

I deal with complex and stressfull IT issues all day, I just prefer my gaming rigs to be simple and reliable and air cooling does that. And it only needs a dusting once awhile with my DATAVAC.
