After having an AiO (H150i) you will love the silence of the Noctua.

So, just to be clear, you won both the H150i and the NH-U12A. You have first hand experience with both on a regular basis. You state the the NH-U12A is quieter than the H150i, and the tone of your post makes it sound like it is by a marked amount.

PoohBear owns neither the H150i or NH-U12A. It seems he has actually never been in contact with either. His contention is that the H150i is quieter and cools better than the NH-U12A because he has a deep unhealthy love for Asetek he looked at cherry picked graphs from random reviews that he can piece together to almost make it look that way.

Want to guess which opinion I value of the two?

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Until it’s loaded with something like linpack, then not so quiet. Enjoy your h1something!
???????????????? all my cpu's are overclocked for day to day use but they are not going to run the max I can get from them with the fans running 100% just to keep the temp below the throttle point.

maybe if you spent more time reading posts correctly rather than calling me names you would have noticed the OP is interested in the H115i pro not the H150i pro and that I posted information about the H115i. Don't let facts get in the way here at all.

Isn't the H150i pro better than H115i? It's a 360 with top tier ML fans rather than 280 radiator with SP140L fans.

Ahh ok, I gotcha. Well, I run mine pretty much full out, no problem, nice and quiet. When its unrealistically loaded, think Linpack Extreme, then its loud. Now that its summer, I can maybe squeeze an extra 100mhz. But that's the max of the chip, I don't really run that in the winter.

I don't need to dial back my oc for summer anymore, its nice.

How can they get in the way? You haven't posted any complete or cohesive facts. Nor have you used the coolers in question.

Yes, but the OP was asking about the H115i Pro, which uses 140ML. That said, the 120ML is among top 120mm fans, while the 140ML is a pretty average 140mm fan (regardless of the overprice). Another advantage of the H115i Pro.

Without fans

Height Width Depth
U12s 158mm 125mm 45mm
U12p 158mm 126mm 71mm
U12a 158mm 125mm 58mm


Picture is of u12s vs u12a.
Thanks, didn't know about that, if I'm not happy with the h115i PRO I'll go for that one!

In most reviews they perform equally h150i PRO and h115i PRO.


Guys, just to clarify, now with my Phanteks case + Noctua NHU12P I have a really silent PC, near to no-noise when no full load, but I'm changing cooler because of NHU12P is not performing good with newest AM4 CPU's.
I've already ordered the Corsair H115i PRO on amazon, so if I'm not happy with noise/performance with it I'll return it and get the Noctua NHU12A and take 1 fan off as @NewType88 showed me. I repeat that price is not a problem between 60$ of nhu12s, 99$ nhu12a or 117$ for Corsair H115i PRO, BUT! I prefer the look of the CLC mounted on the front rather than another big heatsink over the CPU

I'll post later with the results because today I'm receiving the h115i pro.

Want to guess which opinion I value of the two?
I have had....H115i PRO (times 2 on EVGA SR2), Kraken X62, EVGA CLC280, BeQuiet Silentloop 360 and H150i PRO, with both original Maglev OEM fans and Noctua NF-12x25. and I have a Kingpin 2080Ti with 240mm CLC on it.
Regarding the AC heavy hitters, I've had BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4, D15 and now D15SE AM4....not to mention old stuff like Tuniq Tower, TRUE120EX, Mugens etc.

The thing with Asetek is that it NEEDS the high RPM and static pressure fans to perform best. That's why replacing the stock 1500RPM Corsair ML fans on 150i with ~1950RPM 12x25 Noctua's made a clear difference.
They push more air and have pleasant sound signature, if you know Nidec Servo's or Scythe GT's you will notice it immediately - very 'swift' sound without low frequency rumble or 'dive bomber' sound Corsairs make at high RPM).

Sorry if this sounds like a Noctua's flyer but these things are simply put darn good, if it wasn't for their price, I now have 7 NF-12x25's and 3 140mm's, not exactly sure what models they are.

The biggest problem I have with Asetek's offerings is that pump sound signature, gen 5 or gen 6 asetek it's still there. The BQ SL360 had the least amount of pump noise (it also ran at fixed voltage and AFAIK isn't from Asetek) but I don't have any data about the actual flow. What I noticed when switching from Gen.5 to Gen.6 AIO's that the pump noise changed from 'plasticky and crackly' to a more higher pitched but stable 'zzzing' tone. How weird it may sound

If you have your case on the ground and in a case like the R6 you probably won't notice the pump but with your PC on your desk it really is noticeable and irritating. That said, the AiO pump on my kingpin runs at fixed 100% speed by design and is by far the loudest component in the system, unless I really push it to make the fans ramp up.

Regrding the 150i / 115i
Take a good look at the reviews of both, what was the RPM and noise production?
Also from what I remember, the H115i (old one) had very thic(c) tubes compared to H150i. Could be that it has more flow through the rad.

My experience with 360mm AiO's is that all of them are optimized to be as quiet as possible and the 280's tend to be more noisy. The fans on H115i and CLC280 for example, scream like a small server on higher RPM's.

Hello guys,
Yesterday I've received the Corsair H115i PRO and those are my impresions.

First o fall, mounting it on the top was so ugly, to many space lost, so I was going to mount it on the front.
Mounting it on the front has some problems, so to have it fans on the front pushing air to the cooler on the back, you have to take out the hdd caddy and the plate covering it to let the radiator go lower, and I needed the hdd caddy.
Finally I got it like this:

2 original 14cm fan pushing air botom-middle, radiator mounted on the middle-top, and 2 corsair ML fans on pull also on middle-top.

I didn't like iCUE software, so hard to discover the way to change from silent to balanced profile, now the tests.

CONFIG:
CPU [email protected]
PBO settings maxed out
vcore offset -0.875 + LLC Level 6
vsoc 1.025
DRAM [email protected] 1.40v

Noctua NHU12P (old one, 8 years)
Gaming CSGO: 49-53º
Realbench 1h: 78-80º, peak 87º

Corsair H115i PRO SILENT(Config as I described before, 2 fans push, 2 fans pull)
Gaming CSGO: 50-52º
Realbench 1h: 69-73º, peak 84º

Corsair H115i PRO BALANCED(Config as I described before, 2 fans push, 2 fans pull)
Gaming CSGO: 47-50º
Realbench 1h: 64-67º, peak 75º

The main diference on performance about SILENT and BALANCED was the pump RPM's, going silent and PUMT on balanced throwed almost the same perf as all in balanced.
Also, I've found the kit so silent, no as silent as before, but no problem about it.

Cons:
- I didnt like the cable management, had so many cables from the cpu-block.
- Front mount was not as I expected, not 100% agree with the result.
- I was expecting more performance, like not hitting 70º in realbench

So, I've found one Noctua NHU12A from Review at 70$, I'ver ordered it and I'll be making tests all the weekend and keep the one I like the most, I'll keep you informed guys!
