I don't understand your question. All Corsair AIOs are notorious for being anything but quiet. A Noctua NHD14 however is cheaper and quieter while performing even or better.

I've owned two AIO units.
The Corsair H60 which was really loud.
And the Switech H220, which started off quiet but developed a pump problem after a few months and went bad (and loud).

But, I've probably just had bad experiences with AIO's.

Right now "air" cooling is always more quiet than "water" cooling.

Why?

Because "water" cooling merely uses water to move the heat to another spot and then has fans to blow air through that spot.


See it? Air cooling = noise comes from fans
Water cooling = noise comes from water pump and fans.

A plus B can never be less than A alone.

Your statement is not quite correct as it depends on the circumstances.

For instance if you crank up the performance eg: overclock and over-volting etc then water cooling can be significantly quieter due to the fact that you have the ability to spread the heat load over a larger surface area which does not require as large an airflow as a smaller area.

Basically both air and water can be made quiet - water just gives the user the ability to dissipate much higher heat loads providing both setups are designed correctly from the outset.
