Can PCI - E 3 graphics card still be used with PCI- E 2.1 but I imagin that the performance would be down graded :/
post #12442 of 15187
I agree with Art vanelay large air coolers look so bad dont perform as well as liquid cooling and most of the builds in the NZXT phantom club have liquid cooling ether corsair or custom liquid rigs.... Liquid cooling offers faster cooling to one or many components at once and has more overclocking headway than what an air cooler offers....

current gen GPU's don't really utilize everything PCI-E 3.0 has to offer. 2.0 or 2.1 will be fine for almost everyone.

I prefer liquid cooling too, but what you're saying just isn't correct. Noctua NH-D14 or Phanteks PH-TC14PE are better than the h60/70 and h80, and trades blows with the h100.

Wait what? I said the opposite of all of that. Basically, the H100 performs only slightly better than the NH-D14, and probably equal to the Thermeltake silver arrow, so it almost entirely comes down to whether you like the look of a massive heat sink. Custom loop cooling offers the best potential cooling except for something like submerging your system in LN2, but that's only if you use a lot of radiators. Also, I don't think closed loop cooling is very sexy compared to custom loop cooling or shiny metal things.

In the review I posted, the H100 was 1 degree better than the NH-D14 when it the processor was overclocked, and in all of the reviews of the Thermalright silver arrow I have read, it performs about 1 degree better than the NH-D14, so there is no point in arguing the cooling potential of these.

I was actually supporting the point of air coolers vs closed loop.

+ the silver arrow is made by Thermalright, not Thermaltake. Just letting you know.

Ok I wanna see a gunmetal and matte black full sized phantom. It'd be a good way to reintroduce the case into the market. I'd be on those like white on rice.

There is a new Phantom coming soon, so don't expect any more revisions to the existing one. (;

Damn it, I keep doing that. My subconscious doesn't like the name Thermalright, so it changes it to Thermeltake.
