i'm an aircooling guy myself, but i know a few guys who are into quiet watercooling, and it is more silent at the same OC, but you need to put even more thought, work and money into it than with air
What is your noise tolerance? Do you typically notice (even if you are not bothered by) 120mm fans running above 800rpms or so? The reason I ask is that is roughly my noise tolerance and I have never used silent WCing, I have only researched it.

Some how i doubt all of this.

Sure we might get a die shrink on everything.

But we are just going to multiply the amour transistors on it any ways

Suppose these new chip. What if they do run cooler but end up being more sensitive to heat? Were the objective is to have as little change as possible instead of getting rid of it all together...

Who knows..

it'll still have to be cooled, and the advantage of the big radiators is that you can cool it a lot more quietly.

great thread ehume.

Ironically enough, I just went back to air after liquid cooling for about 4 years. (not sig rig, new SB build that is not listed)

I may return to liquid cooling come Summer.


Fwiw, I really like how simple it is to swap a video card when a liquid cooling loop is not being used.... but then again I don't get the stellar operating temps of said liquid cooling.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I don't know why so many people think die shrink = less heat.

This is only true if transistor count / core remains the same, but that's not true - we're not running 32nm, 1 core, 4.0Ghz cpus today.

Look at the history of cooling: going from the 130nm 1.8V+ Athlon days, to 32nm, 1.3V i7s, we're seeing a massive INCREASE in cooling demand. I was looking at a 2002 cooler review the other day, and the coolers were jokes compared to even a low end tower of today.

I think we'll be demanding even better cooling in the future. As programs becomes more parallel in the future, and 16+core 22nm chips become mainstream, along with Fusion like technology, massive CPU coolers will be required.
