Upgrading from Noctua NH U12S To Best None-Custom Water Cooling?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My case is a 750D, my CPU is 5930k that can do 4.2Ghz on 1.26V (limited by cooler). I have two 1080 Ti FEs.

I am looking for the following:

- Not much hassle (Hence no custom loop). So expandable AIO can be considered and actually encouraged.
- Safe! No leaking or if leaking, atleast it isn't conductive? (Is that possible?)
- Low noise. FE at 70% fan is Noisy. At 50% is bearable during gaming. No sound when idle.
- Obviously on par or better than D15/D15S in terms of thermal performance.
- Having my 1080 Ti FE cooled with it is a considered option but I can always be happy with, for example, a Kraken X62 only.
- Case Travel, it moves, part of the reason why I can't go for a D15.

This is my first time foray into CLC and AIO. So bit intimidated tbh.

Look into Swiftech, EK and Corsair products.

Yeah I did a search for those but so far I can't pinpoint a solution that I would go for. Some more specific recommendations would be appreciated.

There are many more companies that make AIO like Cooler Master... actually:

This is why I am asking here in the hope that my options can be narrowed down. Price is no issue btw.

Corsair's 240mm radiator coolers are usually on par with the D15 and they seem to be pretty good with honoring their warranty if something catastrophic happens.

I don't know the width of your case, but as nothing with water is leak-free, and non-conductive liquid just doesn't exist as such (you would have to make your own loop and it would become conductive anyway)... I would go for a swiftech expandable AiO, or...

Did you consider a big aircooler like the Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT? It's as good as ANY AiO based on Asetek technology (the pump is on the CPU plate), and it's far more silent. A more expensive alternative that is more compact and as efficient as well would be a Noctua NH-D15...

Alright, so far here are my considerations:

- Kraken X62: Seems to perform nicely and is as good as D15 while also being quieter than the Corsair equivalents.
- Swiftech X240 x2 Prestige so that I can add SLI GPUs (1080 Ti) to it?

Thoughts and suggestions?

Swiftech or stick with air. Those Asetek units introduce all of the problems you identify while not performing better than high end air and with a little more noise.

Watercooling your GPUs is a smart choice - only the Swiftech unit has enough flow to do so.

Depending on what your needs are (I see a lot of wants but no problem - too noisy, too hot?) you will probably be better off investing in chassis airflow.
