cryorig a40 looks the best, better temps than most other aios and somewhat quieter.

But But But it looks so much better and pro g4m3r!
I also hardly understand what's the fuss with air coolers.

I dont like some huge heatsink inside my case , making it nearly impossible to do anything without taking out the whole motherboard to do anything, Also those nicer coolers are around what 80-90$? The H220x and Cryorig are around $100-140. Let alone the way I had to screw the bolts onto my old Zalman cooler, while they stripped. Shoudlnt take 15-20min to install an aircooler.
nah no thanks.

cryorig or h220-x2?
post #45 of 55
That is the Zalman cooler, not all air cooler are like that.
You are not going to open your case everyday and change parts all the time.
AIO like Corsair Cryorig are ok, but nothing like an actual watercooling kit. Either custom DIY or pre-built like the H220-X2.

I never touch my ram... it's on the bottom of the list with the GPU and hard drives at the top. AIO look better but in my case, the desktop is under my desk and I couldn't care less how it looks.
Why are you asking for pre-applied thermal paste? No high end air cooler will ever have (I hope) pre-applied paste. The application is much better if you do the dot technique. It is very easy. Just grab MX-4 from arctic cooling (or whatever the model number is) and you can't go wrong.
Don't go for the most expensive in small quantity... Having a better application will make a bigger difference than a better paste. i.e. it takes some practice to properly install a cooler. When you take it out, you can see the thermal paste mark and adjust the amount you use and the way you drop the cooler on the cpu. Wasting ~10$ of thermal paste is extremely easy for the inexperienced user.

When I know this is going to be the perfect mount and I won't have to remove the water block, I put some IC diamond. This thing is the best I've ever had.

you mentioned ic diamond and mx4, im pretty sure they are different right?
post #50 of 55
Yes they are.
MX-4 is a "normal" TIM, IC Diamond, I **** you not, got grounded down diamonds inside because diamonds have apparently great thermal properties.

But both are non conductive.
And the MX-4 is among the best pastes out there. You´ll be fine with it. Of course you can spend the 25 bucks on the IC diamond, it´s a great TIM and if you want to squeeze out every last bit of cooling capacity.
