hey martin great work there i was wondering 2 things i want to build a quiet setup with either air or water can't make up my mind

looks like the gentle typhoons will be good either way.

Sorry for this reply being in the wrong thread? Didn't know how to move it

IMHO, water cooling is the most efficient/easiest/best way to get quiet cooling on a performance machine. Of course, I'm biased. And it depends on your definition of what is quiet and what is performance etc. etc. etc.

My experience is that good air cooling and water cooling achieve the same temps. The real difference is that water is quieter. The reason is that you can greatly increase the heated surface area with radiators and flow air slowly over them - quieter. To get the same performance with air coolers the air must flow faster over a smaller surface area - louder.

The drawback to water is the maintenance. The coolant will most likely need to be changed. Maybe every 6 months, YMMV. More of a pain than blowing out the dust on an air cooled machine.

You are in the right place for advice!
Lots of info and experience on OCN.
