Help Me Tweak Skylake i5 Silent Gaming Build - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well. I want the ability to overclock if needed. I also want high quality parts and a good quiet cooler. Quiet is more important to me than speed at the moment.

If by better you mean it runs hotter tongue.gif

I was going for a balance between performance and quiet. All the data suggested the ninja 4 was perfect for that. I competed my build and my cpu runs at about 50 at full load and and less than 30 at idle. Also I accomplished the silent aspect as well. I can't hear the PC even when the video card is maxing out.

Did you miss the part where it's outperforming a heatsink that costs twice the price at half the fan speed? Have a look.

It's hard to refute a review from someone who has a vast knowledge of cooling and uses clearly explained, proper testing methodology (as in multiple tests for consistency, and careful measurement air intake temperature as opposed to case/room temps, etc.). Not to mention many other reviews (listed on the products page) corroborate his findings.

They're all good buys for different reasons, but until I see the upper echelon heatsinks (Cryorig R1, Ninja 4, NH-D15, etc.) tested with the same fans (ideally on an extreme overclock), I'd as soon take the Ninja 4 and save $25-$50.

Stellar results. You need some rep for that pic.

I'm glad it worked out. thumb.gif
