Cooling for OC Skylake-x
Have two Asrock OC Formula x299 boards, one with a 7920x/H115i and the other with a 7980xe/custom EK RES 140 D5/HK4/360GTX. I don't trust water cooling much, so am trying to see what, if any, air option might make sense for these. The TDP's can run 300-350 watts with the amount of OC presently applied.
Have been reading about the Thermalright Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme. Looks like maybe it's good for at least 300 watts, maybe more, with those hi-speed fans. My cases are big enough. Does anyone use one with these cpu's?
I can't find a source for the IB-E Extreme; is it still sold anywhere? It's also unclear whether it could be used on the 2066 socket. But the TY-143 fans are available. Would a Noctua D15 S with them or other hi-speed fans be workable? I can stand some fan noise, within reasonable limits, when pushing video.
What else might you recommend for X299 extreme air? Thanks.
